Hey MariArti,
I'm from Germany. Which College are you going to choose, if you get offers from UCL and LSE as well?

Honestly, I would prefer to have all three offers and then will have to decide...

Now I have offer only from KCL. Next week I will know the decision of UCL. Though I do not know when LSE will respond (next week my 6 week of being under consideration will start).

I try to be realistic. I do not want to stay and practice in UK after finishing the LLM. I think that all the named universities are good, reputable and are members of "Golden Triangle". Choosing one university and not choosing the other will not change my further career now, as for the most employees they are equal. I am already employed with one of the major international law firms and and my partners said that they "do not care as all of the universities are really good".

Though if I have an offers from UCL and LSE and know it would be a hard to make a decision. So I am going to talk to my partners here again and to contact one of the partners from our London office... I am interested in their advises.

And what about you? Have you already made your firm?

I think for working in Germany it is not really relevant whether you went to KCL, UCL or LSE. More important is that you have learned some legal terminologies and perfectionated your English as well as learned something about common law. For that reason I haven't decided on any college, I will wait and if I only stay with the offer from KCL, I would be fine.
I actually think there is not much difference, except that LSE is probably the most popular one.
But if I get offers from all three, I will have a hard time to choose....
Good luck for your UCL decision this week!

Thank you, Thumy. I hope UCL will bring me some good news...

Generally, I also think that there won't be much diference between KCL, LSE and UCL... all of them will add good points to your CV and will give you a fine sense of English legal writing...

Btw, do you know that LSE is already closed for "home" students?.. Are you considered as "home"/EU student?.. I wonder how much time it will take LSE to close the programme for overseas?..

I heard that last your both part of the program (i.e. home and overseas) were closed in late February... so I am thinking about chances to be admitted before the actual closing of the programme..

Hey Maria,
as a German citizen I'm considered as "Home" student.... but I actually don't understand the statement on their website: "If you submit your application but the programme closes before you can be considered..." this all refers to the fact that you couldn't be considered. So if your status tracker says that you are "currently under consideration", does the closure of the programme apply to you? I really don't get it.
Good luck for you!

Thumy,

maybe you should call them and clarify this issue... I think that this means that at the present time they have limited places left and many applications from strong candidates... this may mean that they are closed for new apllications... but as you are under considereation for 5 weeks or so, this might be not applicable to you...

I think it is better to call and find out than to guess...

Good luck!..

Maria

Thanks! You are right, I should call them and find out what is going on. Lucky you that you are considered as oversea, at least for the closing date.

I just called the admissions office and I was told that if you are already under consideration the official closure does not apply to you. I feel much better now, but it also means there will still be some time to wait.

Haha, I am not lucky to have additional fees as oversea student.. btw, last year oversea program was closed even earlier than for home resident students... and I think this year it also will be closed in 2 or 3 weeks, so I may be not so lucky at all... we'll see...

Good luck with LSE.

I just got offered a conditional place on the KCL full time LLM. It doesn't say anything about communicating an acceptance though. What should i do?

Same here mate. I suppose that (if King's is your first choice) you should fullfil those conditions and then wait for their notice what to do next...

Is it necessary to communicate some sort of acceptance?

I also received my offer today. I checked the website and the FAQ sections says: You have to accept an offer within three weeks. I guess I'm going to call them tomorrow to find out...

Oh, i just noticed somebody in this threat has already found out that the 3-weeks-deadline only applies to unconditional offers. As we all seem to have conditions on our offers we can relax and wait until end of august.

I was in contact with KCL today and if you have received an conditional offer you don't have to do anything until you have fullfilled the condition. The latest date to get in contact with them is 31st August

hey guys, my application has been at stage 1 since feb. 11... how long does it normally take for Kings to reach a decision? i know for some of you it took two weeks, but i'm guessing feb-march is a pretty busy period... any help would be great.

Hello,
don't know if it helps and don't want to worry you! I got access to the online tracking system on 25th of feb. and got my decision on 7th of march. I posted my documents on 19th of feb. Maybe you should ring them up?
Good luck!

One of my friends is on the stage 1 from the 1 of February and he did not take any response from KCL... I have received my offer 3 weeks after I was put on stage 1 and could track my application... Do not worry that you application does not move to stage 2. In my case the second stage was missed and application moved directly to stage 3.

Also note that admission should be discussed between at leat 2 acamics and the decision is made on consolidated basis. So take personal factor in account and think that your admission officer might be sick/on vacation/overload with other applicants...

Relax. With respect to admission procedure, no news is a good news.

All the best.

Hello guys,

as far as you know or, in any case, under your point of view, does KCL speed up the process for the profile which are considered suitable, slowing down those which are unlikely to be considered for the admission?

Thanks.

All the best
