UCL -Any news at all??


Does anybody ever hear something from UCL besides the point that they are admitted? Ever since I got the mail that my last referee uploaded his rec. I haven't heard a word.

My application with sealed and signed reference letters enclosed arrived UCL on 24 Jan. And still have not heard any news nor acknowledgement email.

My second referee submitted sometime in the second half of December. Acutally he had submitted before but UCL had trouble finding it and so he sent it again. As I had not received an acknowledgement e-mail I e-mailed Admissions and first got no answer. Upon a second e-mail a few days ago they told me that my application was with the respective graduate tutor since 12 January. I haven't received any acknowledgement e-mail or offer since then. These guys seem to lack some talent to organize themselves.

Hi guys. I submitted my application by post back in november. A week later I emailed them, and they replied acknowledging receipt of the application. A few weeks later I received an email informing me that an offer would be made, but would arrive by post. Earlier this month the offer letter got here, and I sent my acceptance by e-mail, after consulting the admissions office on that possibility.

Well, I think I didn't make my point clear in the first post. I think maybe you should contact the admissions office by e-mail, and perhaps they'll update you on your status.

i sent 2 emails to the admission office and here is their answer:
"Thank you for your email. There have been a few problems with the new online application system which has meant that a number of applications submitted in November and December were not printed in the Admissions Office. Unfortunately yours was one of those and so it was not printed out until yesterday after spending Monday going through the system to identify those applications. The application is with us in the Faculty now and will be processed as quickly as possible. I apologise for the delay in this and we will treat your application as a matter of priority. If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact me. "

I think it is the case for a lot of applications...

It seems your application has been complete and in the hands of Faculty of Laws now. I sent my paper application by post in Jan after knowing that both referees must upload their reference in order for my online application (Dec 2010) to proceed.

Like I said in another post: always use paper application if there is a choice!

UCL's online appliaction system is a failure,.

I submitted my paper application and it took them less than three weeks to grant me admission - before Christmas.

Oh another thing is - if ever in doubt, call the faculty and ask. I was particularly impatient about my applications so I called them many times to clarify what I was supposed to expect after submitting my applications etc.

To keep you guys updated. I just received an e-mail from UCL that the laws faculty graduate tutor recommended UCL Admissions to make me an offer and and offer letter will be sent subject to final checks by the Admissions Office.

So UCL would probably be my second choice. Still haven't heard from LSE. Does anyone know about UCL tution fees?

btw...I did call the faculty about two weeks ago, however I do not think that that sped up the process as they told me that my application file had just been send to them. Apparently they have a three step process: 1) General Check of the admission package (after which I did not get an email or anything else), 2) Review by law department and the above mentioned email 3) offer via mail

oh and my application was online as it appears to me that most of the others sent paper applications

hi.
my whole application along with both ref were submitted by end nov. till yesterday i had no replies from their side, so i had sent them an e-mail regarding this query. i got a reply from them the very next day which stated:

"Please see the attached letter regarding your application to the LLM programme at UCL commencing 2011-12. The official letter sent from the Admissions Office may take a few weeks from now to reach you, particularly
if the letter is going overseas so I would be grateful for you to be patient. It can take up to 6 weeks from receiving this email for your letter to arrive so please refrain from contacting the Graduate Office or the Admissions Office regarding receipt of the offer letter until 6 weeks have
passed from receipt of this email. For those who are worried about meeting the deadline for acceptance, it may be helpful to note that the deadline for responding is four weeks from receiving the letter so you should have plenty of time to respond."

the attached letter is an informal offer letter. so i am guessing that i made it to UCL.

for all whose who are still waiting to hear from their side, e-mail them immediately.

@ grishmaahuja

Congrats on receiving your offer! U must be so excited. Now which one do you think you will choose - QMUL or UCL? Personally, I would go for UCL :-)

Btw... you said that the attached letter is an informal offer letter and you guess you made it. I couldn't understand what you meant. Was it one of those mails everyone talks about where they "recommend a place on the program"? Just curious.

I called them up a few days ago and they sent me a mail yesterday saying that I would receive a response by 22 March. Fingers crossed! :-)

hi..thanx...i too wil be going with UCL for sure... see this is what my letter stated:

I am pleased to advise that I have recommended to the Admissions Office, UCL Registry, that you be offered a place on the LLM programme at UCL.
This email does not constitute an offer of admission to UCL. A formal offer letter will be sent to you in due course, subject to final checks by the Admissions Office: that letter will constitute your official offer of a place.
There may be conditions attached to your offer, such as your attaining stated minimum degree results, or on proof of English language proficiency. Conditions attached to the offer will need to be fulfilled before the offer becomes unconditional.
You will be required to respond to the letter from the Admissions Office within the time stated in that letter. If you have any queries, please contact the Graduate Admissions Officer in the Faculty of Laws, Jane Ha, on 0207 679 1441 or llm-law@ucl.ac.uk.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Faculty in September 2011. In the meantime, please consult our website. Have a look at whats going on in the Faculty, and review the course list, at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/laws/prospective/llm/"

from this i am guessing i will be offered a place.i think this is the "recommend a place on the programme" mail. what do you think? should i take this as a sure shot of my admission place at UCL?

Oh definitely! This means that the Faculty of Law has approved your application, and it just remains for the admissions office to offer you a place officially. Of course, until you receive the actual offer letter, you cannot confirm your place 100%, but this is a sure-shot. I guess as they said, they will attach some conditions and upon fulfilling them, you can join the program.
