    I have no idea! I'm a Law applicant too and I honestly haven't seen anyone get for at least 2 months: there's another threads which details all decisions and the Law list of people who have heard nothing is massive!

    All this speculation can be a little nervewracking but it is based on fact, as far as I can see. From what I've heard, LSE has operated like this for a long time, not just this year, so it is possible that LSE is just annoying I just want to know!
    A friend got his offer for law in early January- AAA

    not really, it was very similar to Critical Thinking so I'd done quite a bit like that before, although these were harder. I probably guessed a couple, but I was very happy with my score out of interest, what did you get?
    Lol. What did you get though? (btw, the average score that they gae us refers to everyone who took it before the 15th january deadline right?)

    And yeah. LNAT IS pretty similiar to Critical THinking. I suppose that the language is just slightly tougher? Was forced to guess one answer coz I didn't understand what one word meant. =.=

    e.g. Which of the sentences is sarcastic?

    And if you didn't know what sarcastic meant, you can't answer. That's what happened to me. Lol. (though, i do know what sarcastic means. i just forgot the question given to me in the exam. xD)

    It also sort of requires you to pay full attention to every detail. I remember finishing my MCQ with only 2 minutes to spare.

    Well, us law applicants just have to wait a lil while longer then.

    You got your offer today? Well done! If you just want to be a lawyer why don't you do Sociology at LSE then do a conversion course afterwards? Unless you really like the actual law part of being a lawyer :tongue:

    Well I actually got my offer on Monday, but I don't come on here much

    Yeh, that is what I was planning on doing and I wrote in my personal statement that I was hoping to complete the gdl after specialising in human rights during my degree to eventually become a human rights lawyer (hopefully!)

    However, I know that sociology isn't seen as a particularly rigorous degree, and when applying to law firms, I don't want the fact that I didn't do a "better" degree to be held against me...but i'm not sure. I was planning on doing economics/theology/law to begin with.

    I think i'm going to email a few firms to see their opinions on sociology.

    I think you should ask too, but sociology at a top university is generally seen as rigorous... If you want to get into law then maybe you should just study law, you don't seem to really want to study sociology.

    This is the problem, I am SO unsure of whether I want to study it or not. I mean, I think I do, but my only reservation is the career prospects/ percieved "mickey mouse-ness" of the degree.

    Oh I don't know!

    I'm 90% sure i'm going to take a gap year anyway before I do go to uni.

    I think that (so far with the little I know about your situation) taking a gap year would benefit you, you'll have loads of time to think about all that.
    I ended up studying law myself and i hate it, but it's french law so it's different lol.
    Anyway, maybe doing sociology is not perceived as the most rigourous degree you could get, but doing it at LSE is definitely not the same as doing it somewhere else and I think it could only have a good impact career-wise.
    The degree of relevance of this question however varies if you intend on working right after your BA or do the conversion course or a postgraduate degree.

    If you're unsure about the lack of recognition such a degree would have maybe you should try an IR/politics/government or social policy with government course, you have the society/law part and i think that there are modules on human rights for most of these.

    :eek: they gave out offers on Monday? There's no point trying to guess LSE anymore!

    Yeah, I want to become a lawyer too (most probably) - I got into a law course at Uni of Manc which would qualify me, or I could do the CPE after LSE if i got in (I'm applying for Social Policy with Gov). I don't think law firms would mind, and look at this way - you'd be doing Sociology at the best uni in the country since neither Ox or Cam offer it on its own. Good luck deciding anyway, and congrats on your offer!
