llm in kings-(2013-14)


hey,
I received a conditional offer from Kings a week back. I just wanted to ask that my conditional offer also asks me to give an ielts exam for English language. Anyone of you who has a received an offer....did u also get the same conditional offer i.e. of giving the English language exam. because I have heard Kings usually grant waiver to everyone for the English language exam.

Regards


Hi Mohit,

Where are you doing your llb from? It would be better to give the ielts.
Have you decided on your subjects? Are you trying elsewhere?

Hey aster, congrats!

I got an unconditional offer for KCL at mid-october, but I have already supplied my IELTS at application. I have just finished my LSE application last week and am waiting their answer, however I have already accepted KCL. I still don't know which one I will choose if I receive an offer from LSE.

Regarding the score requirements, I was informed by admission staff that the requirements for Brazilian students this year would be an average 8.0/10. My score is 7.0 and I had no problem, on the other hand I graduated at a very prestigious law school, so I suppose they took this into consideration.

Cheers.

Hey guys,
I submitted my LLM application to King's yesterday but want to upload or send a few more documents for their perusal. Who do I send my documents to?
My second question is about my research proposal. What happens if my indicated supervisor is not a part of the faculty at King's and is only a module convenor for a course? Do they provide a suitable supervisor? I indicated Mr. Toby Landau QC to be my supervisor but just realized that he is a practising barrister and may only be a guest lecturer. What should I do?

Howdy fellas, and congratulations to my potential future classmates!

my referee submitted her letter this afternoon and two hours later I received an unconditional offer. Their promptness was very much appreciated, but I am not very fond of the 4-week deadline, as I have also applied to other universities in the UK and one in the American Midwest -- the likeliness of the latter giving me any info before february being, I fear, remarkably low.

I am tempted of accepting the offer anyways, but... what are the exact consequences of accepting an offer? I mean: what if I do accept the offer and, should I be granted admission in a place I fancy more, decide not to go? I imagine the only thing preventing me from doing that would be the idea of losing my deposit for good -- believe me, I'd go to any lengths to avoid losing five Euro, but I suspect an investment of this kind might be worth if admission to a fancy (I do overuse this adjective) is eventually granted. Thing is, however, the offer letter is very clear in stating that they do not require a deposit and that payment of the fees is due in September/October.

Let's say I accept the offer hoping to be granted a scholarship. They eventually discover that I am not that good a candidate and the scholarship goes to someone with real legal skills. Say, again, that in the meantime the Awesome University of Candyland offers me a place. What happens if, lured by the idea of eating candy for an entire academic year, I give up my place at King's? Is it just an example of outstandingly unfitting behaviour? I'd rather avoid doing any of these things, but come on! A 4-week deadline is simply ridiculous -- and, I daresay, pointless, since they don't even ask for a deposit to be paid.

I suspect that writing them an email inquiring about this issue wouldn't quite be a wise move.

Anyone? Any input would be very much appreciated. Thanks, and looking forward to meeting some of you in London!

I think many of us are in the same situation and it is very common during the application process in the UK. Therefore I would recommend to wait and accept shortly before the date of the deadline. No guarantee, but I heard from a lot of people that declining the offer should be possible after accepting. But only if it is within a certain period e.g. till april.

I would be pleased to hear the outcome of your inquiry at KCL.

Ok, basically I've been told that we can accept the offer by the deadline and then decline more or less whenever we wish without any penalty. I received a very polite answer, it didn't sound like I was bothering them with such a request.

Hope this helps? Sven, do you by any chance have countless messages in your mailbox? I don't really know why you are not receiving my PMs. Anyhow, this should solve the problem.

Hi guys,

do you think it would be too late to apply in mid January 2013? It sounds like almost all the places are already gone! :)

If I recall correctly, the deadline is in march. It is of course true that the program may close early, but I seriously doubt there is anything that should prevent you from applying. I mean, it's only late december. Also, there is no application fee, so I suggest that you go for it.

Hi guys,

First of all, thanks for all the info posted.

I would like to request information about the international tax programme at KCL. Is someone familiar with this LLM? how is its overall reputation? from all the different specializations, is the one with less professors... is the tax department strong at KCL?

Good luck everyone!

Hey Guys,

Quick question i intend to apply to Kings for the 2013/2014 intake by 22nd March 2013. The deadline is 30th March 2013. I am aware that Kings tends to fill up before the deadline. Anyone have any idea whether they are still gushing offers?

hey I have received an offer from KCL and UCL with a 70% from mysore University. Am sure you have a great chance with these schools. LSE I am not so sure, It also depend on your professional experience I believe when it comes to LSE.

hey joy,

Well hope u get ur reference fast. I have opted for IP laws. I am leaning towards Kings though. I had also applied to edinburgh as a backup. They reply real fast. May be you can consider it too, just in case ur worried aout being late. Neverthless I know ppl from last year who applied around this time and got accepted at KCL and UCL.So you should be fine.. cheers!.

Hi guys!!!Thanks for posting, it was all very useful! I received an offer from QM but I'm still waiting for KCL reply :( I was very worried on what would happen if it didn't arrive before QM deadline to accept the offer!!apparently, "accepting" an offer isn't biding after all (right?)! Also, does anyone know if you can accept more than one offer and than decide which one to decline when you're 100% sure??!
I'm thinking of taking the IP course, any info on why i should choose KCL over QM?!
Tks a lot!
