    Are Law masters genuinely selective or is it relatively easy to get into a program?

    I ask because I applied to Warwick, Exeter, and Edinburgh LLM programs and I was accepted by all three. But I'll the best first to admit that my grades aren't the highest (I go to a Dutch university and have a 3.1 GPA out of 4) and that I have no work experience. My academic history is really as average as it's gonna get. Furthermore, I didn't even do a Law bachelor but Liberal Arts and Sciences with simply a major in law (and politics). So how come I was accepted by all three? Are these three just not good universities and should I apply to better ones or are all LLM programs just not that selective?

    LLMs are not as selective as undergrad degrees.

    Depends where you're off to really, Cambridge and LSE want Firsts/High 2.is, but other universities tend to be happy with a 2.i.
