does anyone know if those who applied in the JAN deadline will compete only among themselves, or also with those who applied in the MAR deadline?

in other words... is applying in JAN only better due to more scholarships available? or is it also smaller competition for places in the program? (I'm guessing it's the first... but would like to confirm)
thank you!


I don’t even know there’s a March deadline.

Those who applied for the January dealine will be considered together. The uni will decide whether to give someone an offer, a PFO, or, if applicable, to move the application for consideration in the March deadline. This happens when they are unsure about a particular applicant. Note, however, that if you are moved to the March deadline, you will likely lose your scholarship.

Hi all!

I unfortunately didn't make it into Cambridge. Based in this I wanted to know what my prospects of getting into Oxford are. So far I have gotten into Cornell and NYU, but after the most recent rejection I have no clue so as to what my position is.

I was really hoping to study in the UK, since it's a more affordable option for me as compared to the US, but given the serious blow to my self confidence I don't know where I stand or what to think. Any advice will be helpful.

Don't take it to heart, ann007.

All law schools get far more qualified candidates than they can accommodate, and it often turns out to be a matter of luck. It's not just how strong your profile was, but also how strong others were, and how unique you were in a particular cycle. It is not a reflection of how good or bad you are. Many people here have made it in their second or third tries, and you should keep trying if it matters so much to you.

Otherwise, I feel there is very little different between LLM programmes. NYU is brilliant, and I'm sure you would have another few applications pending. Remember, it matters not how many times you fail, but only the one time you succeed. Stay strong!

Thank you so much for your kind words, I really hope what your saying stands true. Although I was very disappointed, but life goes on. I just hope everything sorts itself. All I can do is hope right now to be honest. Lets see what happens.

I feel like could be earlier this year. Very nervous. Is Oxford harder to get into than Cambridge? Class size is smaller but also way less appliers.

As a general rule I think that the BCL is quite a bit more selective than the Cambridge LLM.

Hello - is this myth or reality? Data shows close?

Cambridge - taught law masters. 1350 applications and 431 offers. 32% acceptance rate.

Oxford - BCL. 545 applications. 145 offers. 27% acceptance rate.

Thanks for this. It makes for pretty grim reading for anyone not ranked in the top 3 of the undergraduate degree.

It's interesting that the FOI request asked for percentage rank, whereas the response seems to be on actual rank.
