I had read somewhere that the University of London halls give a percentage to each university, and then they are distributed by the university itself... i.e. I assume that it applies also!

Oh bugger! Youve figured out my plan!!!!

Jokes aside, PUCCA, in my humble opinion youve been one of the most helpful persons on this site and even after the start of the programme you still reply to my inconvenient PMs on (very) silly stuff!

Many thanks!

PS: I will one day have more posts than you!!!! : )

And now the wait has finally come to an end Last week I received my rejection from Oxford and today another one from Cambridge. Im not sad or upset at all in fact, I can now rest assured that from September onwards London and UCL will be my new home. Nothing beats the comforting sense of closure A friend of mine once said: It is better to have a horrible end, than to have no end at all. I couldnt find a better way to put this sense of closure into words

Suzanne Wade emailed me earlier this morning:

'Dear Mr Bond (James Bond)

I have now received your application file back from the LLM Admissions Committee and I regret to inform you that your application has not been successful. I am very sorry to have to send you this disappointing news.

Yours sincerely

Suzanne Wade'

Have you sent her an email first or do you think they are finally sending the decisions? I am sure I will not get an offer, but I need to read it.

I didnt send anything to her but I did ring the Law Faculty last week asking for an update on my application. Anyway, when I talked to her (dont know if it was Ms Wade herself) over the phone she said that decisions would be sent out in no later than two weeks. Our conversation was at the beginning of last week, so I guess all applicants should be getting a response soon.

Hi,

The Graduate Tutor has recommended that an unconditional offer is offered to me.

However, it is subject to the final checks of the Admissions Office. It is underlined that the recommendation does not guarantee a place on the LLM.

What is the final check and their criteria ? I refused UCL two years ago and I am afraid they can be reluctant to offer me a place again.

Thanks !!!

Hi Gwen. I think this final check by the admissions office is just a formality. I honestly dont know of any case where the facultys decision has been overruled by the admissions office. Its just that according to UCL regulation the Faculty of Laws cant send out offers. They can only recommend an applicant to the admissions office. But I dont think theyll even analyse or take into account the fact you turned down their offer two years ago. If youve got what it takes to be recommended for admission by the Faculty, Id say it about covers all you need to be made an offer by the admissions office.

hi gwen,

i was similarly concerned as to the difference between a recommendation of an offer and an offer itself. i called the office of graduate admissions and was told that the difference is a technical, jurisdictional one: as beicon correctly points out, the department of law is only authorized to select those it wishes to admit, but not to communicate its decision to those applicants directly. the 'final checks' of the admissions office, i was further told, only relate to making sure that there aren't any outstanding issues with your application and your supporting documentation. so long as your application/documentation is complete, your recommendation of an offer is tantamount to an offer!

also, it is general university policy in the uk to consider each application individually and without reference to any previous applications which one may have made in the past!

i hope that this helps!

Hey all,

I've been granted a conditional offer to study at UCL. There are two conditions - English exam (did that, passed IELTS at required bands) and MA degree diploma. The second one raises some questions. I've sent a certificate of my grades at Vilnius university with my application, which stated all my grades for the 4 and a half years of study. The conditional offer only mentioned that I must obtain an MA degree to fulfill the second contition. There was no mentioning of any grade level of some kind - QMUL required 8 out of 10 overall, KCL - 9 out of 10 overall. Does this mean I already passed the required overall mark requirement (as of today my overall mark is 8,6 out of 10) or they just didn't include that due to general requirements - let's say 8 out of 10 for all LLM applicants. I didn't find anything like that in the graduate application pages though. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

I'm 23 yr old from Lithuania. Looking forward to meeting you all in september!
