as long as you don't have all your replies yet, you don't have to firm your uni yet! (: UCAS will inform you regarding the actual deadline you have to firm your unis by! don't worry ! haha.

My offers are all conditional, but after I got my fifth offer UCAS sent me an email regarding the dateline, which is in June for me So I think the same would more or less go for you as well

Btw hello I'm from Singapore also. Anyway, w.r.t the university issue, I've interned at a Big Four firm and the consensus seems to be that Bristol is Very Good. IDK why, the rankings don't really tell you so but yeah. Warwick is comparatively newer and I guess less recognised? Also, they are in the legal profession so they're very knowledged on that. Still, you can't go wrong a LLB from Warwick, it's a very good school.

Also, Notts, Durham, Exeter, Sheffield of Manchester etc. isn't very much known in Singapore. Ultimately, if you want to become a very famous lawyer in Singapore, you would have better luck staying there.
notts is actually v well known in singapore. and there are quite a number of top lawyers from notts in singapore. i agree also that bristol is a v gd sch, but either way u cant go wrong with either bristol or notts. the only reason why one will choose one over the other must be the location and not "prestige" or "reputation" as there is little difference in this regard.

ultimately, wheter you become a 'top' lawer or not does not depend on which sch u grad but how well u perform as a pupil, as an intern, as a jnior lawyer, ur track record, ur ability to win cases, or perform top quality legal work for clients.

Hi everyone! I'm in my 2nd year of National Service now and will soon have to trouble over university woes.

I've a place at NUS Law 2011 and UCL Law 2011. Which would be a better choice to take up Law at? NUS Law seems to be reputable 'enough', while UCL Law has (hearsay) lower admission standards from international applicants. Is UCL Law or NUS Law harder to get in to? It's queer having people comment on how I go to the UK to study Law because I'm not qualified to do so in NUS. & that's before they knew I also had a place at NUS Law. Judging by the local consensus on NUS Law's competitiveness, it imprints somewhat an impression UK legal education is far easier to obtain entry to, as opposed to local legal education.

I kinda took KCL out of the equation although they offered me Law there too. That's reasonable, right?

Also, I'm contemplating letting go of my UCL Law place to apply for Cambridge this year. I got rejected from Oxford last year (presumably due to my interview, which was awful I tell you. I screw'd up.). Even if I do retake my LNAT and apply to UCL in addition to Cambridge again, there's a risk I might not get into UCL, even though I did get in before. Any advice from anyone here?

Wow I really do see your predicament. Between NUS and UCL, I would pick UCL because of the experience of overseas education, and also because UCL truly seems to be catapulting upwards in the rankings etc. (not that it was low to begin with!).

I get what you mean about people assuming that being unable to get into NUS is the only reason one would go abroad. You have to ignore that perception, though, because those who know that such a perception is silly are probably the ones who matter anyway (employers).

I guess in the end it comes down to whether money is a problem because then NUS can be a lot more worth it, and whether you want an overseas experience.

WRT to Cambridge, I can understand it would be really tempting. I suppose the question you have to ask yourself is, would you be okay if you lost UCL as well? (Do you REALLY want to go there?) Because if they figured out/ assumed they knew what you were up to, you probably won't be kindly looked upon in the next cycle. Check with some teachers/ students who have been in this predicament of reapplying.

Good luck!!

Probably not, I know people in Warwick with a D7 for GP doing courses that have an AAA(a) requirement.

Then again, they're doing MORSE...

Nah I'm considering Econs at either Durham, Edin or Exeter...
Don't know whether it's a good choice or whether I should just stick to SMU.
Regret not applying for LSE.

And nah, they don't care about GP.
