    Hmmm. I don’t trust league tables. Every single one of them places some place called ‘Oxford’ above Cambridge. I’ve never heard of it, but I’m sure it can't be very good. I can only conclude that it must be some form of in-group joke amongst the statisticians.

    Congrats on the offer! that's amazing.
    Do you mind posting your LNAT, and date you sent your application off??
    Sorry to be a pain but I am so desperate to go to Nottingham and I'm still waiting plus I got a pretty awful LNAT score!

    Thank you very much for the congratulations. Belated congratulations on your offers and congratulations in advance on any you’re still waiting for! I’m sure that Nottingham will see your potential and, if I saw the right one, your LNAT score is far from ‘terrible.’ It’s above average, which is the most important detail, and I’m sure that the universities appreciate the arbitrary luck-based nature of it.

    As for me, I applied on the 15th October and, to my amazement given how much I hated dissecting texts rather than taking a ‘holistic’ view, I got 24/42 on the LNAT. If you applied prior to me, then try not to worry. I’m sure that they’re using a sampling method that treats everyone equally rather than discriminating based upon how much they ‘want’ applicants.

    I'd just like to say that QM's reputation is not a stationary one at the current time, like most of the other universities. The direction it is heading in is up, and if anyone's reputation is going down, in my opinion it's KCL's, due to a number of problems.

    I think there is a consensus amongst staff at QM that the law department is under-ranked almost everywhere, (perhaps not in the Guardian :P), but in most places, and they are actively seeking to redress that!

    A number of measures are in place, and more will be coming into place to rectify this, and I wouldn't consider QM to be outside the top 10 law departments in the UK.


    But it is childish to argue like this, if you disagree, fair enough, things like this can never be quantified to please everybody! It's best just to tolerate other peoples' opinions, even if you disagree

    Every year there is usually a "one off" uni in the Guardian (the Guardian btw is the least credible league table). This isn't to say QMUL is bad, but it certainly isn't LSE/UCL/Durham/Bristol/Warwick/Nottingham. Its a solid top 15. It isn't top 3. The generally accepted system (in no particular order within the groups)

    Cambridge
    Oxford

    UCL
    LSE
    Durham
    Bristol
    Nottingham
    Warwick
    KCL

    Manchester
    Birmingham

    Queen Mary is probably somewhere in between here.

    Newcastle
    Southampton
    Exeter
    I would probably agree with the 'one-off' statement if it was the case that QM was absent in the top 10 of the THE and the Independent's rankings

    Hey well done on getting the two offers, perhaps looking around the unis will help inform the decision you make, you may even realise that you don't actually want to reapply next year.. Are both unis offering AAA?
