UCL Admitted Students 2008


Villy J.D.

Hi everyone, I recently got accepted to UCL for the 2008-2009 LL.M..... Has any one else been accepted???

It would be great to hear from everyone... maybe discuss accommodation, budgeting or any other interesting topics...

pd.: if you participate in this thread then it must be because you were also accepted, so, congrats!

Hi mate - I've been accepted.

How did you decide on UCL? Its a really hard choice between UCL and LSE, but I'll probably go for LSE.

well congrats!
i am going for int'l law... the course offering is much more oriented toward int'l public law.... the Centre for International Courts and Tribunals is also a big plus.... finally my bro went to LSE so i decided to do something different........

In any case, it is a win win situation i'm sure that either one of them is a great choice!

How come you are going for LSE?

Good question - well, various reasons:
1) Partners at international law firms said LSE is the best
2) LSE is one of the best social sciences institutions in the world
3) LSE has subject offerings in my interest area
4) LSE is much more well known in the common law world. Example, when explaining to people, I say "UCL" and the response is "where's that?" or "UCLA?", whereas if I say "LSE", the response is "oh yeah that's good!".
5) The scholarship winners (ie: menzies) in Australia have, since forever, only selected Oxford, Cambridge or the LSE for postgraduate study in law.
6) a partner at Bakers, who is from England, did the ranking for me and said LSE is very, and I quote, "groovy"
7) I like the fact that a nobel prize is won every 5 or 6 years

Generally however, in Australia, LSE is very well known. I understand it ios the same in the US. Hence the common law world.

Best wishes

UCL is on par with the LSE. Anywhere North America certainly knows it is just as good.
But, there is one big factor in favour of UCL: the 'names' actually teach the courses!

I would actually out UCL above LSE for various reasons - as advised by senior lawyers and academics.

after looking into it more, I begin to realise that I might select UCL! hahaha My reasons above were weak and the facts suggest its between UCL and LSE, just a personal decision.

I just got accepted at UCL.What happens if you miss the deadline for accepting? I'm thinking of holding out for other offers. Can I accept and reject it later on?

Hi,

Due to some problems with getting my second reference to UCL, my application was not completed until 15 January 2008 or so. Can any of you tell me how long it took between your application becoming complete and receiving your offer of admission?

I've been accepted at LSE so I am just figuring out how long to wait to hear from the other universities I've applied to.

Thanks.

Hello guys,

how long did your decision processes take meaning time passed between completing your application and the offer? How is the LLM in Corporate Law at UCL since I would like to take it if I get admitted?

Thanks!

Hi everyone.... well from my experience the whole application/ acceptance procedure took about 2 months..... if anyone hasn't applied yet I'd suggest you call either admissions or the law graduate office and ask if you are still in time to apply, I think that UCL makes the selection on a "rolling basis" which means that eventhough the deadline for application is still open, there might not be any places left!!!

On the other hand, any accepted students can feel free to contact me in skype, my user name is villegasjaramillo.

Finally is anyone focusing their LLM on Public In'tl Law?

regards,

UCL, differently from many others, prefers communicating via regular mail. You receive letters in the course of consideration (as I presume you already know).

Should you have any queries - it is best to call up "admissions office" by phone number printed on the bottom of the letter they send you. Phone guy there is really helpful - I found out from him I was accepted about two weeks before the actual letter came to me.
