    Your powers have failed you my child.

    You see, I was lying all along! I've never met him! He's been dead for ages! You silly person!

    /sarcasm

    But yeah, not a fan of the waistcoat personally. I assume it looks good on you though if you're pushing it so hard :p:
    Blast!

    Well, it looks better on me than a jumper . I think I may just go with the waistcoat-less suit though because the other is getting a bit tatty/small.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    1. Yes, my personal statement has included things like work experience in a physics laboratory, but shouldn't that, along with internships in the legal field add a little more interest. Why hadn't I applied for physics then? I've just used that experience to show an interest in another subject as well. Also, I've used my PS that got me a place at the UNIQ Summer School for this UCAS application.

    2. Possibly though all the tutors there said that they would realise that people have bad days and low LNAT scores do happen.

    3/4. No media studies thank you very much. Maths, f. maths, bio, chem, phy, geo, music, politics, chinese, gen. studies, critical thinking, sociology. Law is a multidisciplinary subject. Surely wider knowledge of a range of areas be some kind of advantage and they've indicated that they are not biased against subject choices.

    5. Yes, I have changed my mind many times before finally arriving to a certainty with law - from geography to geophysics to music to medicine and then to law.
    Maybe it's because with 5 Bs in AS, they think your predictions are not realistic? (no, I'm not a stalker, I was just curious )

    No it isn't. I enjoy knowledge and believe that different subjects should have equal preference, and I have many extra-curricular activities from being in the British Youth Council to doing piano performance advanced diplomas. I am really devastated when I was rejected from Oxford. I am from a school that is very low in the league tables and my parents are working class. I've worked so hard to achieve a good set of grades and become a well-rounded person. A gap year is coming. I'm going to do medicine instead of law. Succeeding at law these days is too skewed to the upper middle class families and the government at the moment is greatly increasing the social gap. I give up.

    Ahh this is probablyyy going to be the most annoying post for everyone but you've gotta allow it as this is my first ever post here!

    I just wanted to say that the idea you've been rejected because of your working class background is absurd! I did pretty badly in my AS with ABBBB, but still got an interview at SEH for law and I can pretty much guarantee it's because of my working class background and difficult home circumstances.

    And in the most non-offensive way ever but your phrasing sounds a bit broken and imperfect so maybe your PS wasn't coherent enough for law?


    AGAIN SORRY I AM LEAVING THE OFFER THREAD FOREVER! haha

    You definitely need a new pair of glasses or something. Did I actually state that Oxford rejected me due to my working class background or did I simply imply that they should have taken my circumstances into more consideration? And quit being such a headless prick when a blog like this is in no way similar to something you would submit in a personal statement. You need to read properly before making stupid assumptions.

    in UK I'm still waiting on King's, LSE, and Oxford. I assume my King's and Oxford app is dead because my LNAT was terrible.
    and I'm applying to a couple of schools in the US and Canada,
    same here
    I don't count much on LSE though coz it's just unpredictable.
    I assume you're international applicant, where are you from?
    I'm applying to schools in US and Canada, what a coincidence!

    First sign of activity on track since I sent the damn thing and...

    Durham Law Offer!

    That was a bit of a shock, I didn't think they'd be rolling these out until the new year! I'm not complaining :dance:.
    This is incredible! When did you apply?
    If you don't mind, what GCSE's did you get and what are you predicted at A level?
