Offers for LLM's


Applied to LSE, UCL and Kings' in October. UCL says they will have a decisions made by the end of March 2008, KCL has a four week turn around time and let me know on tuesday and LSE says 8 weeks so I should hear back mid January I imagine.
I received an unconditional offer from Kings. E-mail says that I must accept within the next three weeks. My first choice is LSE so I am hesitant to firmly accept before I hear from them.

Does anyone know if you accept an offer at KCL first due to the time constraints if you have to pay a deposit? All they have sent me is an e-mail attachment that they want returned with my details on it.

Well, this is quite strange.

I received a conditional offer a few days ago. The condition is that I submit an official TOEFL-report (which I did not submit due to the price of the official report).

The e-mail from King's states that I must fulfill this condition within august 31, 2008, and it says nothing about me having to accept the conditional offer before this date.

So, basicly, it seems to have been a very good idea not to submit all required documents, as I am now able to await the response from LSE and Cambridge.

Hi Arthur

I got a similar offer from King's. It's an unnecessary condition regarding the TOEFL/ IELTS because I'm fluent in all aspects of English. Plus you're right it costs a lot and it'll be an unnecessary expense. Especially since I'll be taking a loan to finance my studies.

My first preference was King's since my marks weren't good enough for LSE, Oxford or Cambridge despite 10 years work ex. I'm supposed to accept the conditional offer in order to apply for the housing facilities but I've asked them for an exemption from the TOEFL/ IELTS and am waiting to hear from them on that before I accept the offer.

I've also got an unconditional offer from University of Manchester.

All the best to you for LSE and Cambridge.

Hi Tatiana

As far as I know you do not have to pay any deposit in order to accept the KCL offer. I'd suggest you accept the offer in any case especially since you do not have to make any deposit. You can check the website of KCL, it mentions this aspect on it. The link is given below:

Hope this helps you.

FYI everyone I got a waiver of condition of the TOEFL/ IELTS since I've studied all my life in English. I called up KCL and spoke to the person there and told her that the TOEFL/ IELTS was not required for me as I was fluent in English.

She advised me to send a letter from my college (Delhi University, India) where I did my LLB stating that the LLB had been studied in English. I sent them the letter today and a scanned copy yesterday so hopefully they will give me the unconditional offer in a few days.

The unconditional offer has to be accepted in 3 weeks as far as I know.
