    I hear very good reports about Exeter. If you work really hard you could achieve higher than predicted and apply for other unis through .adjustment.

    My heard dropped when I got an email from LSE, but turns out they want further information...I think they're trying to get my hopes up when they'll end up rejecting me

    Nope... last year they sent me an email requesting further info. When my school got back, they sent me an offer within two weeks.

    Obviously not a hard rule but you get the point.

    That's great! Well, I can only hope for the best...Did your school directly send the info they requested or did you do so yourself?

    Directly (it was info for which they required an official school domain).

    But it does depend on what they asked you specifically...

    They just said they wanted a scanned transcript or information about my grades so far (I'm attending a Canadian high school)

    Have you heard of many getting into top Unis for adjustment for Law? I've looked around and was surprised to see that King's were taking adjustment for Law last year..however the lowest they'd accept was 2A* and an A..but still..gives me hope because I feel I am capable of really high grades, just let myself down on the LNAT.

    Yes I have. As long as you achieve higher than predicted and have the universities required grades and above. Remind me of which universities you have offers from.

    I have offers from East Anglia (with American Law), Queens and Newcastle. I'm gonna make Newcastle firm. Rejections from UCL and King's (King's was always my first choice). Also applying to Irish universities but won't know till August. I do feel confident that I can achieve 2A* and 2A this year as I got 3A's and B at AS..I am reaaally hoping KCL are in adjustment again, I e-mailed them about it but they said they won't know that for a while. Fingers crossed. It kinda motivates me to work harder this year though!

    My son's still waiting for LSE. He's also applied to Trinity but not that keen. You don't find out until day of results. Trinity and UCD are very good universities and Trinity is highly regarded in America. Newcastle for law is also considered good. Would you like to study in Dublin?

    Well it's looking pretty good for him as I have heard of a lot of rejections from LSE! I think I would choose Trinity over Newcastle, just because the uni is slightly more reputable but I'm not in love with either of them. Even though I know they're both great uni's there's something about studying in London that excites me so much, it just seems so full of opportunity and I visited recently and it just seems like the perfect place for me. But a good degree is more important so I won't be downgrading to any less reputable uni's just to study in London. I'll definitely try adjustment though for King's, fingers crossed they're in it again. I think there's a good chance because there will definitely be those who miss their grades completely and if someone comes along with 2A* why shouldn't they let them in? Especially because they've been in it before so it shows they're open to it. Also I've heard something about less of a limit on the amount of students universities now let it with top grades (don't know if that's true). It gives me something to work harder for either way

    Yes, the gov lifted the cap on the amount of students. Sadly it doesn't apply to Oxbridge or LSE.

    Got an offer for Kings and now I'm torn between them and UCL. Unlike pretty much everyone else, I really don't care about prestige, the blah blah magic circle, and all this other junk. I want a university that will let me get stuck into research and advocacy from the start and that's taken seriously when it comes to changing policy on things like pluralism and so on.

    So I guess this is probably the completely wrong place to ask if anyone has any ideas as to which is better for those between Kings and UCL.

    I highly doubt it... Although on the FAQs they have said you can apply after 15th Jan provided there are spaces
