    I got my Track login details today. When do you reckon I should expect my first few offers?
    I applied for LLB Law on September 6, 2016 and this is how my offers trickled in:
    University of Liverpool: October 13
    University of Manchester: October 26
    University of Sheffield: October 28
    Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU): October 31
    University of Leeds: November 2

    I think I applied too early and that was why it took one and half months to get the first offer. Sit tight and good luck!

    Ivy League Universities generally want 32 or above. 25-32 would be good by that scale I think.

    The average score is about a 20. Ive heard anything 24 and above is in the top 25%. Im trying to decide if I want to retake it. Depends what I get on the SAT.

    People in my school usually retake the ACT if they do not get 30 or above...

    I chose to just take the SAT and not take the ACT

    I only know one other person that took the ACT. Most uk schools need a 27. I've looked at some of my schools and they either dont specify, are alot lower, or they take other schools. Just going to wait until the SAT. If my score isnt good then I'll retake it. My highest section was Reading and I got a 29.

    What's your definition of a not good SAT score? because my school's definition is extremely skewed... if we don't have a 1400+ it's basically a bad score.
