Hey guys, I’m gonna be applying to KCL LLM. Any reason why deadline is so late compared to other providers?


What are your grades like?

I am averaging 77%, I'm in my last year of undergrad. Have bad A levels with mitigating circs and some legal work experience.
Why do you ask?

Hi guys
Has anyone from those who applied to LSE (late January early February) received an answer?
Thank you in advance :)


I’ve applied to LSE in the second week of January and haven’t received an answer yet.
This is quite frustrating. Do I still have any chances?
I’ve already been offered a place in Qmul and ILF (Germany), but I’m waiting LSE to decide my future!

Don't worry, Clara. It can take up to 8 weeks.

Is there any interest in developing a second thread for people attending LSE for the 2018-2019 term? It might be nice to get something going where we can meet each other and discuss housing, pubs, etc

Has anyone from the early-to-mid-January cohort heard back from LSE yet? Today, it's been exactly 8 weeks since my app was completed, so naturally I am refreshing LSE 4 You every five minutes...

Hi! I've received two offers respectively from KCL and QMUL. I wish to specialise in IP Law.

From what I've heard and researched, QMUL's Law school ranked 3 in The Times Education an around 10-15ish for KCL. However, KCL has a higher international recognition in general. I also understand that QMUL has a wider spectrum and better programme structure, especially for IP Law.

I've also heard that law firms which specialise in IP Law would recommend their trainees or solicitors to complete their LLM degree in QMUL, is that true? Would I be in a disadvantaged position if I choose to do IP LLM in KCL but all law firms know that QMUL is popular if my former information is true?

I'd like to know if anyone can give me some advice on which offer to accept. For KCL, once I've accepted the offer I'd have to pay 500 quid deposit to secure that offer. I have until late March to make this decision.

This IP Law dilemma has been going on for almost a decade for most IP law students, but I still couldn't find a post with a detailed comparison between the two law school in terms of IP Law...

Thanks!


At the risk of shedding a light on something better left unexamined, QMUL is an average institution (No clue how they manage to earn that rank). Statistically speaking, 4 students from my college, who have not done shit in life have received an offer letter from QMUL. I have seen their SOP, and CV and was horribly disappointed. QMUL floats offer letter in like a week's time. Few of my seniors received an offer letter in 3 days time. It makes no sense. I do not know much about KCL so I would not comment upon that. I hope I am not sued for defamation and I further hope that this information gives you a better perspective.


Thank you for your this amusing take on QMUL; I must admit I had to contain myself in order not to laugh out loud in the library. However, all jokes aside, I do not believe that you should measure an institution by their entry requirements for postgraduate programmes. One of my professorial references is a HLS LLM graduate, and he strongly recommended that I apply to QMUL because of its stellar IP Law research (I graduated top 5% of my class), so that alone goes to show that QMUL has a great reputation (in academia, don't know how it is with law firms but tbh idc), at least with regards to some fields such as IP.

That's what I've heard the most - that law firms prefer their trainees to go to QMUL for IP LLM. To be honest, my main concern is not the ranking but the quality of the programme. Unless there are statistics telling me that QMUL is completely no match to KCL in the IP field, I would be more keen on going for QMUL because of its wide range of choices and reputation.

Hello Guys, for the application to LSE, I'd like to ask which date should be counted as the start date of 8 weeks period? Is the date when we received the email indicated "application downloaded/New Application Created" or when we received our ID/Complete application?

Actually, from the latest information published on local social media board in our country, it seems to be counted from date when the applicant received the email said application download... Need more statistics to confirm my assumption... Hope for feedback from the applicants who have received admissions...

Or, might it be that all the applicants who submitted applications late (maybe in mid-late Jan. and after) will be considered together for admissions?

Hope someone experienced can provide your opinions...
