    Edinburgh, Bristol, KCL, QMUL and Durham. I have offers from Edinburgh, Bristol and QMUL, my first choice KCL rejected me, so I'm pretty much lost as to where I want to go.

    Ohh I also have an offer from Bristol My first choice was LSE but I got rejected.

    Are you still waiting to hear back from Durham? It really depends where you want to study I guess? They're all pretty good unis for Law, so wherever you choose will be fine

    Did they say why AAA instead of A*AA?

    OK thanks a lot, sorry for making you repeat yourself! Congrats again. I'm not sure whether you want to say which college you have been offered a place for (some people don't wanna post it on here) so just how was the experience at Oxford aside from the interview?

    University College And it's fine! The experience at Oxford was so much fun. I didn't expect to do much socialising/exploring of the city as I thought I would be prepping for interviews, but then I realised I was just going to drive myself crazy if I was stuck in my room and didn't make any friends. Plus, I had almost a week off school so I thought I should make the most of the experience. During the days when I wasn't interviewing, I met up with friends from school who were also down in Oxford for interviews, explored the city, did a bit of shopping, and went around Oxford with friends I had made at Univ. In the evenings the student helpers had organised some activities (like treasure hunts, film nights, visit to the Christmas markers) so they were fun

    Are you applying to do the 4 year undergrad Llb or the 2 year accelerated postgrad Llb?
    If it's the former, would the extra year necessary at Edinburgh be a deciding factor for you?

    It's 4 years law and politics at Edinburgh which I find a lot more interesting than straight law, so the extra year looks like it could be kind of worth it in my opinion

    Bare in mind that this is not a qualifying Law degree in England (unless they changed it recently). This means you'll still have to do the GDL.

    Yup still waiting on Durham, I'm planning on visiting the UK over my march break to see Bristol and Edinburgh at least (already saw QMUL whilst on vacation in London)

    I'm pretty sure it is, you just have to have a heavier course load than usual in order to have it be a qualifying degree

    It's not an automatically qualifying course but you may be able to take the necessary extra courses. I interpret that as there being no guarantee that you will definitely be able to so that's maybe something worth checking?

    However, if your ultimate aim is not to practice law in Scotland, or elsewhere, it's a moot point.

    Heard several people receiving offers for Nottingham at AAA today. I got an offer at the end of November but for A*AA. Does anyone know why people are getting lower offers? And is it possible that mine could be lowered when I make it my firm or will they be lenient if I get AAA on results day rather than A*AA. Does anyone know anything?
