LSE LL.M


brazilian

I just got my unconditional offer. Not sure if I will be able to accept it, however, as I have two children to go with me, plus my husband. We will need to think a lot before going... I am very happy, anyway, since I was not really one of the best from my class, although I have a lot of work experience.
Is there someone he planning to go with family to London? Do you know if there is any chance to get a job there for my husband?
Thanks and congratulations for those who got an offer!

congratulations on your offer. your husband will be allowed to work for the duration of your course if he accompanies you to London. whether or not he'll be able to find a job, i imagine that depends on the industry, his skills, and his fluency in english. good luck making the decision!!

Congratulations! I'm afraid I don't know anything about the visa situation for your husband - but do let me know if you need any information about schools in London, should you decide to come (not sure how old your children are?)

Thanks! I was a little bit scared yesterday, but my husband thinks it would be a great opportunity to our family. My boys will be 2 and 4 in october. I am a working mother, so I guess it will not be much different, but in Brazil it is really easy to pay for a nanny, which I am sure is not the case in London. We have a comfortable life here, I am a civil servant in the government, and my husband is a lawyer working in the brazilian presidency. He has a lot of experience in gas and oil law, but he is willing to be a full time dad for awhile :-)
I am still waiting for Cambridge, but not really hopeful.
Legalalian, I would be really great if you could give me more information about the best area to live in London with children. I lived in London for a month in 1997, in Balham, but I think it is too far, isn't it?
Thanks a lot and hope to meet you in October :-)

Hey people,

Just wanted to know as to how strict is this six weeks acceptance deadline for LSE offer. I read in the brochure that they would not withdraw the offer even if one fails to meet the deadline. Dont know how much sure I can be about the statement. I am waiting for decisions from other law schools and dont really want to accept LSE offer for the time being only to reject it later if I were offered a berth from a preferred university.
Any suggestions ?

In addition to the post of reversemigration, does anyone know if one can accept LSE's offer and than later reject it without any substantial negative consequences? I wouldn't really want to do it though, but similarly to reversemigration I don't quite understand how long I can wait after the deadline has passed.

My deadline for accepting is coming up, but I still need to settle a few things before I can be 100% sure that I'll start at LSE in September...

Any advice would be much appreciated.

why don't you email lucy wright at lse (the llm admissions administrator, lucy.wright@lse.ac.uk) and tell her you want an extension (and how long you'd like it to be) before accepting the offer. i imagine they'd be v flexible

Hey guys,

Any suggestions on the good and clean Resident halls for accomodation as a prospective LSE student? Apparently the forms are out but I am thoroughly confused!

Hi everyone. I have been on the lse waiting list for 8 weeks now and I was wondering whether there is still a chance to recieve an offer. Anyone in the same situation or who was initially waitlisted and recieved an offer/rejection from lse?

I am sure at least some waitlisted candidates will def get an offer. The best universities around the world are yet to make their final offers and based on that LSE will definitely receive some refusals. However, the wait might be long and painful. I guess somewhere around end of April.

Any advice on accomodation? I am looking for a twin share room. Have applied to the LSE accomodation. Is private accomodation cheaper. Is it advisable to live close? Have heard the extra rent gets compensated in the travel cost savings.

No doubts about that. What I meant was Oxbridge in UK and Ivy League in US, alot of offers are still pending. So from the pool of students a lot of them might take up that.

LSE is undoubtedly one of the best universities and most likely am going there this year.

Somewhat unbelievably, given that I live in London and have accepted a place at LSE for September, I've never set foot on campus. Am planning to go on a bit of a field trip in the next couple of weeks, so if anyone wants me to take pics / ask questions / pick up anything while I'm there, let me know!

Hopefully it won't seem TOO scary......

bookcrazy:
I'm not quite sure I agree that the extra rent you might pay for living close to LSE gets eaten up by the extra cost of travel. The Tube is the Tube, and the bus is the bus. It's pretty much the same cost per trip. (There are different rates for zones, but with the LSE residences, it's all basically the same cost regardless of the residence you choose.) Now, I will say that there is some convenience in living close by and can easily walk between home and the library, for example, and maybe someone can give you some advice on private accommodations. I lived about 30-40 minutes (walking) from LSE and, in fact, walked quite a lot. There's a lot of traffic, and you can sit on the bus for days at a time it seems: It's no faster at certain times of the day, and the Tube, while a little faster, still isn't significantly so, if you time it wrong.
