Should I bother applying to Oxford MLF/ Cambridge MCL / LSE LLM


lawyerpy

Hello everyone!

I'm a recently graduated lawyer from Paraguay, it is of my interest to apply for several graduate programmes in the UK. Should bother applying to Oxford/Cambridge/LSE or will I get straight out rejected?

Although I still don't know as I haven't got the official list yet, for sure I’m among the 10% best graduates of my class, perhaps 20% at the lowest (My grades aren’t perfect, 4.23 out of 5) two years of work experience (one in Intellectual Property and one in commercial law). Also, I have a recent publication in an international academic journal, finally I teach commercial law at my university.

I don't know if it is of any use but I have many extracurricular activities to support my application, such as being president of several academic clubs and active sportsman.

Should I give it a try?

Oxford and Cambridge deadlines have already passed so applications are closed for this year. LSE is still open and I'd give it a go if I were you - obviously I'm not on the admissions committee but my CV isn't far off from yours and I got an offer. It is rolling offers though so the sooner you apply, the better. Best of luck!

I forgot to mention that my plan is to apply next year. Based on what you said, I guess if there is chance of getting accepted in LSE I should try Oxford and Cambridge as well, right?
