    Hey everyone! I got an offer for Law at Downing!

    Is anyone doing Law with French Law (anyone applying for that too?)

    I'm currently living in France, and I'll apply on the French side of that course (which doesn't have anything to do with UCAS) which means spending 2 years at Cambridge and 2 years at a French Uni.

    If anyone has any info on it ...
    I applied for that at Emmanuel.. got pooled though so probably out of the running for that n__n;;

    Thanks.. but I'm not putting any hope on it P;

    They say that it's supposed to be half-English half-French but actually mine was totally in French.. I did my 'presentation' and then we talked about issues relating to it, had to give my opinion and stuff.. didn't really talk about specific law. It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be, and the interviewers were very nice. Good luck, I'm sure you'll be fine!

    What was your "presentation" on? Was it some kind of article?

    For example, I'd be doing the opposite of you, a presentation in english ... so would be sometihng from The Economist or something along those lines>

    It was sort of based on an article but I didn't mention it specifically.. they don't really mind what subject you do as long as it's 'current', I think.. I talked about education n__n;

    You've lost me ... you have to prepare some sort of presentation BEFORE the interview???
    I'm lost ... none of that was mentioned on the french website ...

    PS : sorry if my questions sound and probably are extremely silly!!

    Really? Maybe you don't have to do it then (although that would be rather unfair ¬__¬~ it tells you about it on the Cambridge DM site. You're allowed to take notes and things with you~

    Just to clarify, this is not actually a permissible conclusion. The college admissions process is entirely separate from that for the Maitrise. A stellar performance in the assessment for the Maitrise counts for nothing unless and until you're admitted by a college in the normal way. So if you're pooled, that means you're borderline for an offer for the BA itself - but for all you know, if you get 'fished' you'd get on to the Maitrise easily.
    Really? That gives me a little hope (but then not that much 'cause it all depends on getting an offer for the BA anyway..). Thanks for telling me

    It's possible that the LNAT could be out any day now...I think I read somewhere that for some people they got released around this time last year. We'll just get the score for our multiple choice, and not the essay, right (obviously this has the potential of being marked differently by every university it was sent to)?

    Btw, are people applying for vac. schemes, and if so where? I've applied to all the solicitors firms and chambers in Brum as I figured I might as well just try out for everything. I had to leave my applications a bit late because I had a bunch of work to do over the Christmas holidays, but so long as they don't do rolling assessments, and look at everyone after the deadline, then just because my submission is 'late' (in my eyes) shouldn't affect me.

    Also, there's a Facebook group I've made (for Cam. law) if anyone's interested...http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=7108618343

    Ad-Alta, the LNAT essay will be in your file so if you want it back you could always write to the college and ask if they'll send you a copy. There's nothing more irritating than writing a scintillating work of genius in an exam and knowing you'll never see it again.
    Ah, I didn't know that! No, it's not like it was that awesome or anything, it would just be funny to see what comments I got on it, but it's no big deal. I wouldn't want to piss the college off by writing and asking for it, especially at a time of year when they probably have enough paperwork anyway (they're still probably dealing with all the postgraduate applications).

    Btw which questions did people answer? I did the one about older women's rights to have children and just blabbed on about egg freezing and stuff - so I kind of answered the question, but not if people know what I mean

    Well yeah - I'm sure revealing the exact question might be detrimental, but if all tests are different then what's the biggie? I don't really understand how they can *all* be different, unless they have a huge bank of thousands of questions and then randomly generate 8 for each individual. Anyway, I can't remember it - I was just saying what it was vaguely about and how I answered it. For all you know I might have completely made it up :-D

    Also what about the practice tests? Are you not allowed to discuss how you might've answered those if you'd done them in passing? And how exactly do they manage to enforce that rule when friends taking the LNAT are *obviously* going to talk about which questions they answered...I don't know, I suppose there are a lot of laws/rules that it is very hard to actively enforce (age of consent, anybody? :-D)

    Anyhoo, didn't mean to get into a ding-dong about legalities - was just trying to make conversation :-p
