Oxbridge chances


missem
I know this has been asked many times before but I'm planning on applying for the Oxford BCL and Cambridge LLM for 2014 and I was wondering if anyone could tell me my chances of getting accepted. I have an Bachelor of Commerce and LLB (First Class Honours) from an Australian univeristy. My combined GPA is 3.79/4 with a law GPA of 3.67 (I'm not sure how to convert this to a UK scale). I'm currently working as a judge's associate and I soon will (hopefully) have an article published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Unfortunately my university does not provide class ranks. However, I was one of three in my class who graduated with first class honours.

Hi, I am from Pakistan and I am interested in applying to Oxford for MFL and Cambridge for MCL. I have done my LLB from the university if London International Program and have graduated with a 2.1. I am ranked in the top 5% of my class and have graduated over all with a 2nd position. I have worked with one of the best law form of the capital. I am currently working as a tutorial teacher at a prestigious university for Land Law and Company Law. I have also submitted legal research to be published at our universities law journal. Besides this I have completed diploma in french and have participated in various activities from working in a hospital to teaching the poor. I don't have a first class which is minimum requirement but no one in my batch has it either. I just want to know if I have a shot here or should I consider other options like KCL and UCL.

I think you have a bright chance of being selected at Oxford.Probably you should explain the Oxford guys that nobody in your class managed to score a first class. And you have probably scored the highest score in your batch .I think it all depends on your convincing capability otherwise you have a good chance.
UCL and KCL will definitely offer you a seat according to my level of understanding.
Hope it helps.
All the best.

How many students were there in your class all in all?


Around 90.

Your grades fulfill the minimum standards required for an application.

But there's one more problem:

So far you only told us about your strengths.

But what about your weak points?

That scholarship you missed. That intership at Freshfields or White & Case the other guy got. That journal article you still haven't finished. That one failed exam in second year.

I'm sure there's something.


Please tell us what it is.

My main weakness (when it comes to job applications, at least) has been a lack of extra-curricular activities. Is this particularly relevant to Cambridge and Oxford? I was under the impression that extra-curriculars were more important for US universities.

Fuck, man, that's serious shit.

No extracurriculars at all?

Diverse interests and achievements are A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y mandatory for any application to Oxford or Cambridge.

I can't believe you didn't know that.

You're gonna have a hard time fixing this. Better run for those disabled kids, rainforests and immigrants now, buddy, before it's too late.

But seriously, Oxford and Cambridge could not care less at all about extra-curriculars, right?

Mate, what is your deal exactly? Do you have such a hate boner for life that the only way you can get your kicks is coming on here and telling people how shit they are.
Are you an admissions tutor at a university? No, you're just some jumped up master's student who thinks he knows everything when he actually knows very little.
You're obsessed with people telling you their weaknesses just so that you lord it over them and denigrate them.

You need to have a word with yourself.

Previously you wrote:

"I didn't write a word there.

Mainly because I don't have any extracurriculars.

Still got admitted."

p.s. It doesn't make any difference to me, my extra-curriculars are good. If I don't get in it will be on some other ground. But I think you are winding poor Missem up.

@ RIT - UCL and KCL will definitely offer you a seat according to my level of understanding.

Hey, thank you for the encouragement but I didnt get into KCL just got the rejection today. Do you think I stand a chance getting in at UCL or LSE. I had the idea kings was easier to get in compared to the rest.
Thank you

KCL is indeed easier to get in than UCL and, even more so, LSE.

Buxton, Alabama, might work for you, though.

Hi all,

I have a Second Class Upper Bachelor of Laws from the University of Malta and a 76% average- just missed first class by one spot. By the time I apply for an LLM I would also have hopefully completed my Doctor of Laws postgrd degree. Anyone know what my chances of getting into a top Uni like Oxbridge or LSE is?
