LLM 2012-2013


desigirl

hello everyone,
Im thinking of pursuing LLM in the academic year of 2012-2013 through any of the London based Universities, my priorities being UCL, Queens, KIngs, LSE.
I was wondering as to when would it be the right time for me to start preparing to make applications as well as complying with the other requirements such as IELTS, SOP, etc.
Any specific things if required to be kept in mind?
As well I intend upon acquiring a scholasrship, so how should I go about it?
Please let me know

Hi all!

I am currently commencing my final year of BA undergraduate studies in Law. I tend to apply to Oxford, Cambridge or King's and I am dubious about certain issues of importance: I have a good extra-curriculum CV, I won a major international moot court at Oxford University and I am being awarded a German scholarship, taking all into account, my marks are around 79%... What do you think of the chances?

Thanks!

Hi desigirl,

I will be making my applications to those universities that you have listed as well! It is heartening to know that there is a thread dedicated to this. :)

As for me, my preference would be UCL, KCL and QMUL.

I will be keeping a close eye on this thread for any information at all and will also be sharing whatever information I have at hand.

Best of luck to all of those applying!

Regards,

Derek

I've got a question regarding the word limit for UCL.

It says it shouldn't be longer than 3000 characters - but that's hardly 500 words! For LSE the word limit is around 1,000-1,500 words.

Alternatively, I can attach a document if it's above 3,000 characters. But it doesn't say how long it can be max. What did you guys do about that?

If you guys wanna start the LLM in 2012, I'd better have your applications ready by "yesterday". Apply as soon as possible, that's always a good ideia. On the word limit for UCL, assuming you're talking about the personal statement, I think they must've changed their requirements. When I applied in 2009, my personal statement had about 1,000 words... but I used paper application.... don't know about online applications.

Don't think it has. I really wonder why it hasn't yet. But I assume it should open any day from now on.

I just want to prepare everything in advance so I can send it off as soon as the applications go open.

Nice, Bolivia. I'm preparing to apply too. Do you know if UCL has a reference online system? The same as LSE and Cambridge where the referee submit its reference using personal ID and password. Or can the applicant submit manually the reference in paper form signed by lecturers or employers?

Scroll down to "Apply Online" and select the pdf or word doc.

That should explain everything much better than I ever could! ;)

Yep, like LSE, UCL also requires your referees to submit your LOR online. My problem being, one of my faculty members isn't very tech savy, unlike the other. I wonder if we can just post them the LORs which is on the official university letterhead and enclosed in the official University envelope instead?

If your query is about UCL, I have the answer: It's no. I had the same problem when I was applying in 2009 and called them up about that. They were pretty clear: if you apply online, the whole thing's got to be done online. Can't apply online and send reference(s) via mail. That's why I ended up using the paper application.

Hello everybody!

I have a question concerning the english test (IELTS/TOEFL). I haven't passed any test yet, because i had the french bar exam to prepare.
I know it's possible to apply to LSE and King's without the required mark, and to be sent a conditional offer. But do you think it's better to apply with a mark, even insufficient, than applying with no mark at all?
I have a very good "school record", and think I'll be able to send the english test in january.

Thank you for your answers.

It won't make any difference if you apply with no English mark or an insufficient English mark. The answer will be the same. In fact, I think it's better to apply with no mark than with an insufficient one... if you upload a English certificate with an insufficient score it may look live you either didn't read through the requirements or are asking for a waiver beforehand.

If you do have problems achieving the minimum grade you can after a few attempts try to explain the situation and obtain a waiver. But at first I would follow the rules.
