    Thanks so much for replying! I was a little worried about kings due to their campus being spread out over London quite a lot, and a person I know who studied there did not enjoy the social side of things. But I guess that just depends on personal preference. Maybe see you next year then!

    After what seems lika a long wait, I've finally gotten all my decisions: rejected from Bristol and Durham, offers from Birmingham, Manchester and Southampton.
    I'd kindly ask you to help me make up my mind regarding Manchester vs Birmingham. While Birmingham requires lower grades, I'd be able to reach those required by Manchester too, and now I'm wondering whether there's a real reason for them to ask higher grades.
    Thank you, in advance, for your opinions.

    They explained to me they are comparing against others. If you havn't had a rejection you are still in the running but you are basically somewhere in a list and as someone else turns an offer down they give it to the first in the ordered list and send a rejection to the last on the list. Problem is you don't know where you are on the list and when people will make their final choices so you could go all the way to May.

    I told them either give me an offer or reject me as I have accomodation to sort out at other choices and can't do it until I firm. After that they sent me a semi rejection/sales pitch trying to get me to sign up for another course. Even though I told them I wasnt interested, they didnt release me from UCAS for another week hoping I would change my mind. I certainly wasn't happy with them messing about holding me up for another week due to an enforced sales pitch.
    I suppose what they did is send you the regular rejection email which for some people also includes an offer for the Social Policy course. I doubt they did the one-week delay thing on purpose, as it may take some time for them to sort everything out.

    Regardless, withdrawing is probably the most efficient thing you can do in such a case.

    Nottingham > York.

    Nottingham is consistently being named as one of the UK's leading law schools and has a strong reputation amongst MC/SC firms and South East Asia.

    York, whilst also a good university, is often said to be too focused on group work(?) and has a lesser showing of graduates at top firms.

    The only reasons I'd give for choosing York over Nottingham are:
    - You want to live closer to home, assuming you live close to York
    - You prefer the idea of group work
    - You like the look of York over Nottingham
    - You have a typical offer of AAA from York, and A*AA from Nottingham = easier to get York grades

    My mum was talking to a lady involved in admissions at Edinburgh and was told there were 32000 applicants for humanities and social sciences so that other than contextual offers only offering places to those with or predicted top grades/marks as level of competition exceptionally high.

    If you can handle it, put Nottingham as a firm (A*AA) and York as your insurance

    Sooo.. I got A* in literature A* in philosophy and A in law, (im on a gap year) I have since been rejected from kings Bristol and Cambridge (I'm guessing because of my LNAT of 21).

    Nottingham still haven't got back to me yet which I find strange as I applied early December, is there a chance of me getting in? For people who have got an offer, can you tell me your predicted grades or your LNAT score?
    Thank you!

    I know, he visited today and loved London, loved the campus and course but a guy from LSE who was in charge of events said that the social life was limited and there was a clear divide between students.

    Which way is he leaning?

    I'd go for Bristol if I was him!

    It depends how you look at it honestly...lse has a much higher international ranking than Bristol and for some courses are higher than Oxford and Cambridge
    Also my cousin was rejected from lse this year after a prediction of 5A*s at a2, with all a* at GCSEs and 95+ ums in all 6 of his as levels! Bearing in mind this was for economics but you see where I am coming from

    The social life is what you make of it really! If I was him I would choose lse but ultimately it's up to him!

    LSE has a better international reputation, of course. "Much higher" - no. Only Oxbridge can claim this title. LSE does not beat Oxbridge in any course no matter what people say. The way the tutorials are conducted there makes it a lot more personal and thus a lot more effective.

    Yeah but that still doesn't mean anything... I have seen of a person with 7A*s at A-Level being rejected from Oxford for Chemistry (not even the most competitive subject there).
