    No Uni will accept anyone through Clearing who they have previously rejected for the same course.

    Its something you have to take into consideration but it shouldn't be the only thing you think about.

    Just because a Uni is offering to pay your fees for you doesnt make the course any more right for you than the other course - or that you will enjoy being at that Uni more just because of the money. However, if this means that (for instance) you wouldnt have to think about getting a part-time job and therefore could concentrate on study rather than money-juggling then £9k a year is a big plus.
    The 9k covers tuition costs only. I think i would be in the same situation regarding money-juggling whilst at uni, the main advantage of a scholarship to me is less debt upon graduation and therefore less time having it hanging over my head. I've always hated the credit/debt culture we live in and want to minimise my time being in debt. The non-scholarship Uni doesn't even allow students to get part-time jobs which is another thing to consider. Would appreciate any advice, thanks!

    Yes I am a UK applicant.

    Would I really get 27k more value by going to Oxford? I guess one factor that mitigates the "27k" is the increased cost of living in London compared to Oxford, though I'm not sure how big the difference is.
    You're a UK applicant. Great. You can get a loan. An Oxford degree would definitely pay off as long as you do the work.

    I applied on the 1st of December and sat my LNAT later than you, on the 15th or 16th (can't quite recall ). Might I ask what you got in the LNAT?

    Edinburgh and QMUL, but got rejected from UCL and King's due to LNAT, and LSE (which is crazy competitive - the only thing that was negative, however, was that I did not have any real experience with law before applying... which is something I can work on in a potential gap year. I'd really like to go to King's, and I truly believe that I can get in if I get the same grades (I wouldn't send in LNAT scores as I am technically not required to...don't ask why...)+I'd have experience and I'd show more commitment to law). But yeah, thank you very much for your response!!
    I also missed out on King's and Bristol due to LNAT and have decided to take QMUL, the more I look at it the better it looks, they are improving every year, have been storming ahead since becoming Russel group and have great plans.

    For next year they have already increased the entry level for law to IB 38 HL,7,6,6 from this year's 37 HL,6,6,6. That is higher than King's, equal to LSE and higher than any other law school except for UCL and Cambridge.

    I would look at it more closely, it could be by end of your degree it will already be seen as better than King's, which is pretty static. It could be your chance to be there while it's still doable.

    Got an offer from Glasgow tonight at 18:50 So buzzing! Waited ages.

    for others who are still waiting.... My LNAT score hadn't matched up with my UCAS application (because I didn't put my middle name on my LNAT booking), hence why I've had to wait so long. If you're still waiting, maybe phone and double check they have your LNAT. They can't look at your application before they your LNAT and they only contact people AFTER 31st march if they haven't had an LNAT score

    People still waiting on Glasgow:
    Got an Email from them today asking for personal details because they couldn't find my LNAT and need to do a full search of the database. They said my application will definitely still be considered, which means there must be at least a place or two still available. After I sent them the requested details they said I would receive a decision within a week. So if you're despairing maybe you shouldn't... Yet >:-)

    Just pointing out, LNAT scores have nothing to do with how well you debate and reason, a bad score can be reflective of a bad day or simply not enough preparation... And they aren't used as a definite, they are only used to boost an application, can I ask what your score was?

    Secondly, the scholarships given out by Kings also allow those who couldnt afford to go to university a greater chance at succeeding and incentive to apply... for a university that is basically the same level as UCL, that is more philanthropic than those who see students simply as investments...

    The hilarious thing is that if I hadn't turned down UCL, WITH my LNAT score of 23 and my predicted grades of A*A*A*A, then we would probably have been sitting in the same room together next year.

    This is pretty much the reason I'm turning down Kings. Even if those on here claiming Kings offers with 18 or 20 or whatever are a bunch of trolls, there is no way I'm sitting in a class with 23 LNATs. No offense but clearly UCL are much more discerning on this point which is really going to matter when it comes to being able to do moots, reasoning, etc. together.

    Decided once and for all. Don't even think I'll bother with the offers day. UCL all the way. That and they don't offer money to get people, either.

    And if you think all of us arguing against you have hurt feelings then your ability to understand people is very poor... an ability which is the hallmark of a great lawyer rather than one exam, may I point out.

    And as for doubting me getting into Kings with an LNAT of 23, believe whatever you like

    (Original post by jonstran)
    Sure you did.

    All these hurt feelings only do more to prove to me why higher LNATs are just that much more important. Less emotion, more reason. Not one of you that are so singularly (and laughably) focused on big-paying law firms are going to last two minutes if you're that easily moved to tears by someone saying something that challenges your self-assured little snuggle views of yourselves. You got into Kings on an LNAT of 23? Please.

    Don't forget to apply for your "best and brighest" cash payouts.
