    Hey, I was wondering if anyone else was applying for MLL at Oxford.

    Where else are you applying? What do you think of the course? How likely do you think it is that you will get in? What is going to make you stand above the other candidates?

    I'm applying for German and linguistics (Oxford, Southampton, Newcastle, Leeds, Warwick).

    I'm applying for French and Linguistics at Queen's - the course looks really good, literature based but with some film studies and stuff which is always nice. Last time I checked, the entry rate was like 33% or something, and most people are called to interview, so I reckon if you boss the interview and get a good test score you got a pretty good chance . I've done my own linguistic survey in my local city about the word "scone" haha, hope that sets me apart. I consider the French part of my application to be pretty bog standard - I've read a little bit and I have a pen pal.

    French and Linguistics at Oxford, Edinburgh, Manchester, Newcastle (called Linguistics with French), and Queen Mary.
