jagbir singh,

Ignore Tigerland. I think he was trying to be funny, but the jokes on him because there are plenty of grammatical errors in his posts.

Haha, oh dear. It was a brief aside in jest (hence the wink). Didn't think it would become an issue.

Peace guys, just treat it as a misunderstanding. We might see each other in either Oxford or Cambridge!
I'm just thinking of meaningful things that we can do while the long wait. I just can't resist checking CAMSIS everyday!

My apologies if it made an issue, purely in good humour. The internet can cause many issues through its incapacity to portray tone!

I know how you feel, I must have checked CAMSIS hourly since I submitted the form. I'm still an 'applicant'! Ah well, I have a couple of BVC open days to attend in the meantime (and the BVC application form to complete) so maybe that will help.

Even I must apologise for taking it this far.... But it kept us busy, didn't it?

I think I'll apply for a Phd if I don't get the BCL or LLM offers. In fact, I wanted to do the MLitt at first. But it all comes down to simple math. Assuming that I excel at all stages:

LLB + BCL + MPhil + DPhil = 4
LLB + LLM + Phd = 3
LLB + Phd/Dphil =2 -_-"

So if you ask a kid whether he wants 2 sweets or 4 sweets, he will say 4! Just kidding........

Anyway, my plan is to do two LLM's ideally, one in the UK and another in the US. It will look really cool!

Actually, I'm kinda obsessed with the 2 LLM's, haha. I don't have an BA in law from Oxbridge, which is not a perfect start. So, I want to have both Oxbridge and either Yale/Harv to be in my suffix. So if I get to do my LLM in Cambridge, I'll try for another LLM from Harv/Yale, and finally Oxford for Phd.

It's just a matter of self-satisfaction, haha. Anyway, these days, it's not too uncommon to see people with LLM from both Cam and Harv, or the BCL and the Harv LLM.

As a question to international applicants, how many of you are relying on scholarships from the university you end up at? Any plans if you get an offer of a place but are rejected for all scholarships? Or does that not generally happen?

I'm just curious...

And that 'someone', who is talking of two LLM's, which is me, have no money at all. I'm sure some scholarships will come by. The American universities, as I know, are quite generous with scholarships. If one can get into Yale, for example, they assure that you'll be able to pursue your LLM there regardless of your financial situation.

And assuming that I do get offers from Oxbridge, I'm prepared to ask for loans if I do not get any scholarships. Even begging around, I'm sure, will get me a few thousand pounds at least. I don't care by whatever means, I just want to study in Oxbridge!

Well, it's up to individuals i guess. It all goes down to self-satisfaction. I'm not too keen in practicing, which means that I'll most probably venture into the academia. In this case, these qualifications seem to help.

In any case, the 2nd LLM is a luxury, i agree. I'm not insisting that I must get it, but I would love to have it. And the US LLM's, Yale's in particular, is too competitive. I'll just wait till the suitable time to apply. In the mean time, its all about working, writing articles, and doing everything which I could to boost my CV.

Oh ya, and for the Phd, there are plenty of scholarships offered by the colleges themselves, many more than for the LLM. Again, assuming that I'll do well, I'm not worried about the Phd at all!
