    i never understood you british college kids going 'i just got offer from XXX so just waiting on YYY'.



    is QM the one with the graveyard beside the law school?



    i really don't see any significant difference between your remaining 3 choices. I'll go for QMUL if i were you. Only cos QMUL sounds nice than say Bristol or Durham. im surprised you were rejected by LSE given that you scored 44 for your IB. what do you think made you not get an offer from LSE?
    I'll copy what they said in their rejection email haha.
    It's about my PS but they never said specifically which part went wrong.

    The feedback we have received from the Admissions Selector indicates that your application was unsuccessful as consequence of your personal statement. As competition for places at LSE is intense, the Personal Statement is considered carefully when deciding whether to make an offer. Your personal statement, when compared to those of similar applicants, was not sufficiently convincing to be offered a place.

    Another odd thing is that one of the mature girls' college in Cambridge (not the one I applied to ) wrote me an email encouraging me to re-apply to their college next year cuz they couldn't offer me a place this year( probably cuz I'm not 21 yet).

    Hi, I am an international student and completed my high school in Singapore.
    Took my IB last November and got 44 (which satisfies all conditions I think)

    Submitted my UCAS in September.
    Rejected by LSE (November) and Cambridge (after interview and Law test in Singapore)

    Took my LNAT on 11 December and got 32.

    Got offers from:
    QMUL in December
    Bristol on 17 December
    Durham on 17 February

    So now it's the time for decision. Could anyone please share some advice on choosing the right school? I don't really have the chance to experience the schools myself and would love to know the atmosphere and job prospective. Since I'm an international student, I guess the school's international recognition is also my consideration.

    Thanks a lot~
    I'm Singaporean too and I know quite a number of people (singaporean, specifically) who went to Bristol, and their friend circle literally comprises of Singaporeans only. Which if you're interested in, go ahead, but ultimately it's your decision really. I'd say go for Durham or QM!

    Thanks for the alternate perspective, maybe Bristol ends up great after all. Depending on whether I get Nottingham or not, I'll visit the UK during spring break as I'm international.
    This will give you an idea of what Bristol is like : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skYuG7xQbC8

    HAHA thanks for the info but I'm not Singaporean.
    However I am thinking about coming back to Singapore for work after uni. Do you happen to know how the employers in SG think of the graduates from Bristol/Durham/QM?

    OH oops
    I did an internship at a law firm and basically my mentor didnt really mention much but if it helps he says that during your pupillage your Uni doesn't really matter (as Long as its approved which all three of your choices are.)
    It's more of the skills displayed/qualities you have and etc ie in Rajah and Tann LLP a friend of mine went to NUS and she got the job over an Oxford graduate. So it really depends I think. Hope this helps!

    Everyone seems to have an offer from Bristol and I'm just chilling waiting on a reply. Don't you think they would've given out most of their offers by now?? I applied November 4th, sat LNAT 18th December and got 27. If they wanted me they would've given me an offer by now lol

    I applied in January a few days before the deadline and I got an offer last friday, I think it just depends on whether or not they've actually made a decision with you

    Is your surname at the beginning or end of alphabet? I have a theory that Bristol are giving the majority of offers out alphabetically as all my friends who have had offers were given them in alphabetical order...5 people😳 I'm at the end of alphabet and still waiting, applied October 13th.

    They are taking so long, but it's reassuring to see that a lot of people are still waiting.
