My referees uploaded their LOR last Friday.
I have a Law degree, a Postgraduate Diploma and 6 years of professional experience as a lawyer.
My first choice is LSE but I would be glad to accept an offer from any of the others.
Have you already received the 4th e-mail from LSE?

I received an e-mail confirming that my second referee submitted his LOR.
My application status says (since Friday) that I will receive an email from LSE with my unique LSE ID number in due course.
I think that e-mail would be the so called "4th e-mail", right?
Do you know when should I receive it?

Hey. I'm in the same position. Since we applied fairly early, I believe we will get the 4th e-mail this week. LSE hasn't updated its processing times since October 20th, so I can't tell you for sure.

I have already received a conditional offer from QMUL and I'm still waiting fro news from the other three.
For corporate/financial laws, my first choice would be LSE and then UCL, KCL and QMUL but this not unanimous.
For application purposes, you will need to upload both items: PS and CV.
Btw, did any of you already received the e-mail from LSE with the "unique LSE ID number"?

Hey man. I also received my offer for QMUL this morning.

I did not receive anything from LSE, which is weird considering my application was complete on Oct 21st.

Hey! I do think the CV is a mandatory requirement. I am not sure.

I don't know what the condition is, they did not mention it in the e-mail. Although, since I finished my law degree and am not from an english speaking part of Canada, I am 99.9% sure that the condition is language related.

Good luck!!

Hey. No news from LSE either. As for UCL, no news. I applied on October 24th. You?

By the way, if it's not too indiscrete, may I ask what was your GPA in your degrees?

@Rana07: among KCL & QMUL, KCL seems to be better; outside University of London you may consider Cardiff, Warwick and Bristol. But everything will depend on the specialisation you choose. For detailed understanding of rankings you may refer the LLM rankings given by The Guardian.

@JBME1986: Sorry to hear about UCL. But don't worry you already have an offer, so keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best for LSE/KCL.

I finished my applications a few days ago and yet to hear from any college.

Thanks for the advice. But wanted to ask you this, if we take the guardian rankings alone; keeping aside the other rankings (Times, Complete University Guide, QS..etc), QM is ranked higher than King's and in most of the cases, nowadays.

Well, regarding specialization, I've opted for a General LL.M. as I want to customize my course according to my varied interests particularly in the direction of IP law (IP Modules in conjunction with a commercial, corporate or a business law module to complement it.

- And, Is QM better than Warwick, Bristol, Nottingham, Aberdeen, Manchester, Cardiff, Lancaster. How would you rank these (Bracket-wise).

Awaiting your reply.

Thanks

I beg to differ on this; king's and Queen Mary are both excellent schools but Queen Mary has a world renowned reputation for IP law, which seems to be the main area of interest of Rana. Further to this, Cardiff and Bristol are in no way better then the University of Manchester, especially in respect to IP law as Manchester has one of the best IP-oriented LLMs.
Finally, please do not make reference to rankings as most of them are completely inaccurate. The best way to find out whether a particular course is well regarded or not is by talking with someone in your field of interest. It all comes down to where you want to practice eventually; so Rana what are your future aspirations? Do you want to practice in England?
