LSE, UCL, QM and Kings - applications for 2011-2012


Good Gosh

confirm your attendance when you are certain you want to go to the lse. don't confirm if you are not and when you may not show up, thereby depriving someone else of a place that they would have snapped up in a jiffy.

Thanks to those who answered my question!
Last Minute App, I see your point but I still want to believe we're not "late applicants", let's stay positive and self proclaim ourselves as "midd-applicants" ;)
Antigone thank you for your kind response too!
I wish you both luck! I hope we'll be able to join the courses we want!

Yes, but is there a deadline, when I should confirm. That's my question. There isn't a date indicated in the online offer.

I was admitted last friday and yesterday I received and email informing when classes will start and general information. Regarding accepting the offer I think there is a term but they are pretty flexible ... you will see as soon as you received the mail.

Medland,

I am interested in Banking and Regulatory Finance but I have applied to the general LLM to stay a little flexible since I don't have a background in finance.

Hi Mireia,
Many thanks, I will follow your recommendation, we are now "midd-applicants"!
Any views on recommendation letters issued by clients? I know that ideally we should obtain letters from Law School members, but I have just received one great letter from an international client. Should I post it or not?
Best Regards,
Last Minute App (now Midd-Applicant)

hI,
I do not think that they accept recommendation letters from clients.

Hey guys,
Since I didn't hear anything from the 4 colleges listed, someone told me to apply to Birkbeck.
Since I'm not from the UK, I have never heard of it.

Any comments?

I am from the UK and I have never heard of the University either (I had to google it!)... I don't know anything about this uni so cannot be of much help but if you opt for prestige/high standards etc. perhaps you could apply to the unis outside London, but still considered "good" unis like Nottingham, Bristol, Durham (depending on your interests) which do have a strong renome.

But isn't It too late...?

No it is not, as long as you apply asap. Not all unis have their deadlines in March so there is still some time (to apply, not to wait). Besides, don't give up the hope for LSE/UCL/KCL/QM- no news can be good news! All the best with your applications!

I got an e-mail from UCL about a month ago saying that I was recommended for a place, but still haven't received an offer. Do they inform you about their decision by e-mail first or they directly post it? Maybe that delay is also due to the holidays.

I've only just done my applications for UCL and KCL, so I can't imagine not having heard yet means you definitely haven't got a place.

I'm currently doing my LLB at Birkbeck (for undergraduates it's part-time only, with classes in evenings - that's its primary purpose) and I would strongly recommend AGAINST it. If you're interested in postcolonial, postmodernist gender politics and think one long word is worth a dozen interesting thoughts, then it's ideal for you. Otherwise, avoid like the plague.

I'm unsure as to whether I should apply for a general LLM or a specialised one.

I am finishing my LLB this spring and will apply for King's, QM, and possibly UCL for '11-'12 (I'm a bit late though it seems).

I would prefer to, as it were, keep my options open by doing the general LLM. I was wondering, though, if applying for something more specific would increase (or decrease) my chances of being accepted?

E.g. I wouldnt rule out doing an LLM in IP Law and QM has a good reputation in that area - but for precisely that reason they might favour applicants for other specialties (at least when the applicant has limited knowledge of and experience with IP)?

So, apparently at QM you can apply for the general LLM, only later to specify.

Excuse me. :)

Does anybody know whether there is any chance of getting into UCL or QMUL if you haven't been successful for KCL?
