LLM LSE, KCL

Hi All

I am an Australian LLB graduate from UNSW. My question is, as I graduated with Honours Class 2 Division 2 (a Distinction 75% average), does this hurt my application.

At UNSW, a Class 2 Division 2 is actually the top 30% (unlike the UK) so I do not think it is directly comparable. Will the London colleges take these into account. Has anyone from UNSW who has a 2.2 applied to the top London colleges and made it in?

I also have a couple of years of experience at Mallesons which a top tier law firm here, I wonder whether that would be of some use.

Not from your part of the world, but, in response to your first question, the admissions at LSE, KCL and other universities, generally, take your marks in context. If you look on the programs' websites, you can find published country-specific admissions standards. You should take a look at the Australia admissions requirements to find out where you stand. I'm not sure that your marks equate to only a 2.2, but, in any event, the admissions process (I think) will look at you as an Australian applicant and measure you against what they require of applicants from the Australian system.

Also, I would not neglect to mention your excellent work experience at Mallesons.

Does anyone know, is there any point in sending application for LLM at LSE now?
I've read a lot of people are waitlisted, but their program is still listed as "open" on their website?
I would like to try, but if their program is already full I don't see a point in throwing away 75 pounds for application?

I think you should apply. It's true that you never know if you don't try. That said, LSE's program is obviously competitive, and it is indeed late in the admissions process.

Hi samcoop,

I know you posted these questions a while ago now but I was wondering how the application process turned out for you as I am in exactly the same position.

Would be grateful for any advice you have.

Thanks!
