    I'm waiting for feedback on my LSE M100 Law rejection but I guess it was due to my performance in UGAA as I had to sit one due to me being a mature student doing Access to HE.

    I'm still waiting and in the same boat! Why are you convinced that you're facing a rejection?
    Well I've had offers from Uni of Liverpool and Birmingham but rejected from Kings and Bristol, predicted grades are only A*AB and I got a pitiful 22 in the LNAT with a poor essay that I didn't finish hahaha how about you?

    On the offer day they said they score each applicant on each aspect of their application (top three predicted grades, top 8 gcses, ps statement, reference and additional references, lnat score, lnat essay) to produce an overall score, they then rank everyone and the highest scoring 40% get offers

    I'm inclined towards thinking that that they put little emphasis on it, I got 23 and had an offer. I also hear that they're phasing out the LNAT as an entry requirement (?), which suggests they don't value it as much.

    Yeah I saw that it's not required for people applying in 2017 but because mine will be a transfer application in 2016 they still want me to do it! How did you prepare for the LNAT if you don't mind me asking and how did you find it overall? I've booked it for the end of April but the other university I'm looking at (Cardiff) don't require it! x

    I did a few practise tests but otherwise I did no other specialised form of preparation. On the LNAT website they recommend reading the news regularly and I suppose that might help you train your mind for answering the questions, but it also might help you for the essay section. Therefore, training your reading and writing skills in any way will help. I do recommend doing practise tests though, you will need to understand the structure of the test. I hope that helps?

    Not quite sure what you mean by that haha but LSE for prestige, connections etc but not sure about being in London, apparently huge workloads and masses of independent study vs Bristol as a more manageable sized town, cheaper and more achievable entry requirements!
    My son picked LSE over Bristol but there was some deliberation over it. He actually flew over to London to have another look at it and came to a quick decision. Loved London and the campus and after speaking to a few students realised that he could also have a good social life. Bristol is also a great university for law and it's his insurance so either way my son will be happy.

    A mixture of the cost and not being sure about how good the 'student experience' would be in London

    I'd agree about the cost, but not about the student experience. It's really what you make of it.

    London has everything you'd possibly need, you just need to make good use of it.

    NatWest did some research into student living costs and Bristol came out as more expensive than London in a number of areas. Google it. Then pick whichever one you fancy without worrying about money, you're a student, you'll be in debt. Just make sure you get a good degree and a good job to pay it off. Pay for your accommodation in advance, stock up on pasta, and then stop spending money when you run out of it. Student experience will come to those who seek it.

    I would go for Bristol personally, the typical theme seems to be that the student experience is better there + obviously a cheaper living cost. Marginal difference in reputation, if any at all. If it was UCL/LSE then I would favour them but Kings and Bristol are very even.

    It's
    Among recruiters and academics within the field law, Bristol will be a more well-respected institution than Lancaster, end of argument.

    Also didn't Bristol's law society just win a Best Student Law Society award for aspiring barristers or something? If you want to be a lawyer, these are things that should interest you. There are also more local law firms in Bristol than Lancaster (I expect, although I'm guessing) Bristol is the gateway to the Western circuit. If you don't want to be a solicitor/barrister (and quite right too!) then good luck to you. If you do, have a rethink.

    The most important thing is to choose an offer which will enable you to go to university after you get your grades.

    Hi, I've got offers for Law with Politics at:
    University of Manchester (AAB)
    University of Leicester (Unconditional)
    and 2 others idc about
    and Law with Legislative studies at Hull (320 UCAS pts)
    Manchester is a great student city - and cheap too. Hope you like rain. Don't know anything about the law department. Leicester has a strong law department afaik. Not a bad place to live, obviously much smaller than Manchester and closer to the rest of the country. Good rugby team. Not much in it - try to visit them. (I'm not going to comment on Hull - it's your life.)

    I'd personally agree (had to make that choice too actually), but that really depends on the individual and what their expectations are.

    I'd also argue that only LSE can really claim that favourable treatment, but again it depends on the individual.

    thanks for answering! I was thinking of doing my epq on the twelve tables or the laws protecting criminals from harm, would you recommend this or something else?
    I did a topic on Jurisprudence (Naturalism vs. Positivism) which I very much enjoyed - however, I appreciate that legal theory may not be everyone's favourite thing to research
