LSE LLM Chances with a minimum 2:1


Hi! I wanted to ask you about LSE approach to their minimum entry requirements for LL.M.

The LLM page states ''a first or very high upper second in the UK LLB or equivalent'' as an example for a very good undergraduate degree.

The graduate entry requirements for my country, Colombia, are as follows: a 2:1 equivalent is a 4.0/5; a first-class equivalent is a 4.5/5.

So, what would be considered a ''very high upper second'' in colombian standards? 4.3-4.4/5?

I expect to graduate next year with a 4.1/5. Do I stand a chance?

If not, what other UK LLM programmes can I consider to apply?

It may be irrelevant but give it a shot on LSE application ! I wish you the best of luck. Please consider UCL and King’s too ! You have a high chance of getting admitted in these two places.

Thanks for answering. Yeah, I will give it a shot.

I want to apply for UCL too, but I'm not so sure about KCL as it concentrates in areas that are not of my interest (public law, legal theory and international public law). Do you think QMUL is a good school for any of those?

My friends both studied/study at those schools. In terms of diversity, QMUL provides a variety of subjects than any of those mentioned schools. Reputation wise, KCL and UCL is more well known internationally than QMUL. You may look up on the curriculum of the program and expertise which you are interested. That would be one decisive factor to eliminate any of your non-interested schools.
