    Hey sure happy to help.

    I am doing HL: Eglish Lang & Lit, History and Economics and SL: Math, French, and Biology.

    I would say English and History are very helpful for studying law. You will write a lot of essays in these classes, especially History, and these courses will challenge you to think critically of texts. You will definitely see an improvement if you stay dedicated to these subjects.

    Math and Biology will not be so much help for Law. I am not sure about Business but Econ does certainly challenges us to think critically of situations so I think it does help although not as much as English and History.

    TOK is very helpful as well. Basically, any social science class helps you get a hindsight of human nature, which is important for law.

    I am not sure about how they will view Math Studies... but maybe it may not be so much problem as you are applying for Law. You have made some nice course choices that will open up a wide range options, not just law, while applying for uni. Good luck
    Don't forget in choosing IB subjects the likelyhood of getting a 7 in the HL subjects. This is by far the hardest part of IB. English universities are very unfair in their treatment of offers for IB candidates. The higher grade univerisities are usually asking HL766 or even 776 in the case of Cambridge. If you are doing subjects like English and History only 3% of candidates worldwide will obtain a HL7 in the final exam. Even if you could be very lucky to get a 7, the problem is your school cannot realistically predict you will get a 7. I had the problem with KCL that I chose the 3 most demanding IB HL subjects. Even though the school reference stated I was the highest achieving student in the subjects and would highly likely be in the top 5% of all students, that was still not enough to give a predicted grade of 7. Result automatic rejection from KCL for not meeting criteria. That they don't understand the improbability of there own criteria is telling. You will be far better doing the 3 most easy subjects rather than to stretch yourself academically, either that or arrange to do Alevel instead.

    Hey I just heard back from Lancaster. Got an offer.
    So that means I have unconditional offers from Lancaster, Leicester and Reading. Rejected by SOAS. Waiting for Kent (though I don't think I'll go there).
    Can anyone please tell me which college would be the best for graduate prospects? And the teaching? I'm an international student btw. Are any of these colleges "top tier"? I mean, I obviously know that they're not on the same level as Oxbridge or Nottingham, but how good would you say they're considered to be?
    Congratulations on your offers, in league tables Lancaster obviously dominates, however Leicester makes quite a lot of solicitors for the regional firms and their presence at the Bar is quite reasonable as well.
    http://www.chambersstudent.co.uk/whe...d-universities is pretty helpful if you intend to practise.

    Just received an offer from Warwick! I'm surprised seeing as my GCSE's and A-levels aren't that great.
    I'm stuck between Warwick and Leeds now.
    I'm still waiting on Nottingham though...
    Well done!!
    What were your GCSEs/AS/Predicted if you don't mind me asking? And when did you apply? Congratualations again!

    Has anyone thought about emailing Nottingham? It seems like they're taking ages and I'm especially worried since accommodation applications have just opened. I applied for Law with Spanish and I haven't heard anyone receiving an offer or getting rejected for that course??

    Snap! You're the only other Law with Spanish person I've seen on this thread! Where else have you applied, if you don't mind me asking?

    I don't really see the point in E-mailing them because I doubt they'd tell us much. I'm just planning on waiting it out... Qué será, será.

    I refuse to give up hope. So I am choosing to ignore what the fact that accommodation applications have opened may suggest with regard to the outcome of my application.

    Can someone help me with making a decision on my insurance choice.
    I will put Durham as my firm but can't decide between Newcastle and Sheffield as an insurance.
    My course in Sheffield is quite interesting as it offers one year abroad (in Germany) where I will get some experience in German public law.
    The course at Newcastle is just straight law.
    Can anyone help or share anything?
    Thank you

    Congratulations!! Best of luck and I hope you get into Durham! Sheffield with the year abroad is a fantastic opportunity and it is a way of setting you a part from other students when applying for training contracts etc. However, Newcastle is a better law school and may (not guranteed) give you better employment opportunities! Well done again and I wish you the best of luck!

    That makes 3 of us applying for law with spanish, and 3 of us who have yet to receive an offer!
    I actually did email them two weeks ago and in short, they said to wait.

    Good luck guys!

    If you don't mind me asking, what HL's did you choose for IB? I'm quite interested in doing Law in uni, but I have no idea if my subject combinations are ideal for LSE.

    I'm doing
    HL
    History
    English Language and Literature
    Business and Management

    SL
    Math studies
    Biology
    French Ab Initio
    Hi Tiffany!!

    I applied for Law at LSE, and I do the IB too :-). I think having HL History & HL English really helps (even if it isn't Literature). I know that Business Mangement is on the LSE list of "non-preferred" subjects- of course, this doesn't mean that you will be rejected because you take business!

    I believe that Maths Studies (I take it too) doesn't really impact your application at all, especially because its Law you're applying for here. I had a similar worry at the beginning though, but I asked the the admissions guy who came to my school for a talk and he says that maths studies doesn't impact your application! PS + Grades (IB & GCSEs) weigh a lot in the application process I believe!

    Hope this helped, best of luck for you application x

    Just firmed Nottingham with Exeter as insurance! Declined KCL and Leeds
    CJaneH Congrats, having that decision behind you must be a huge stress out of your life! Out of interest, what pushed Exeter over King's as your insurance? I have offers from UCL, King's, and Exeter and so I'll have to make a similar decision right away, any insight appreciated!

    It will be the grades, I have offers from Exeter (AAA) and kings (A*AA), there'd be no point putting kings as insurance because the grades will either be the same or higher as his firm, Nottingham.

    Thanks! Yes it's been difficult to decide, but it was the grades that determined it really. Notts was AAA, Exeter was AAB but Kings was A*AA, so for my first choice I chose Nottingham simply because of ease and lower cost of living than KCL, as I think they're pretty similar in terms of everything else. Exeter as insurance just because it's given me a bit more leeway with grades. Looking at the offers you've got, I would definitely choose one of the London ones if you're confident you can get the grades because I think they have more prestige with employers than Exeter. However I think Exeter has a really good 'uni life' and is still a really good university . Good luck!

    Quite a few people, including me, heard back in late January/ early February. If you look back a few pages in this thread, you should be able to find people saying that they got offers

    Țhank you for the kind words. I scored 30 on the LNAT, but I am an international applicant, so I'm not sure if that's enough. Fingers crossed, and thank you once more.
    Don't worry too much. I'm also an international, I scored only 27 on the LNAT, and I've got an offer from Durham.
