    I know, and I really surprised myself even getting an offer from Bristol, I am quite reluctant to give that up. I am wary of going anywhere just based on reputation though. I'm going to Bristol on the 26th of Jan and Reading on the 4th of Feb and I'm going to put a lot of thought into making any decision.

    I don't think Cardiff want me did you say you had two offers from them? As in, for two different subjects?
    i think that's a good choice, bristol i hear is a fantastic university, and in law it's all about the reputation, i am also waiting for bristol but personally don't want to go, yh i have offers for law and law with politics from cardiff, with an offer from reading and waiting for bristol & UCL, if you haven't been declined by cardiff then don't worry yet as it means there still considering you.

    Cardiff asked me for a second reference, so I guess they're waiting for that. I don't really know if that's a promising sign or not.

    Why don't you fancy Bristol? or is that you'd just prefer UCL?

    if they asked for a second reference that a great sign, cardiff make offers to everyone who meets the AAA requirements

    i always wanted to go to cardiff but UCL just seem like a better choice, due to there reputation, so i have to wait for them,

    good luck with your options pherhaps i'll be seeing you at cardiff next year

    Oh my, how silly of me to miss such a vibrant, informative, and amiable thread throughout all my months of lurking!

    Congratulations to all that have received offers thus far, and I’m sure that ‘no news is good news’ for those that are yet to hear. Further, if you’ve applied to universities that prolong the decision making process then they must be very prestigious, thereby reflecting your potential and intellect.

    Anyhoo, my offers thus far are:

    University of Cambridge (Magdalene): Conditional A*AA
    University of Durham (St Mary's): Received by college (as of last Wednesday)
    University of Nottingham: Acknowledged
    University of Lancaster: Conditional AAA (November 15th)
    University of Manchester: Conditional AAA (November 5th)

    I’m truly not looking forward to receiving my LNAT result as I’m sure it went catastrophically badly. I’m an individual that prefers a holistic interpretation of texts since I believe that a writer crafts things as a whole rather than in a compartmentalised fashion. As a result, I hated the LNAT level of dissection. On top of that, I completely misunderstood my chosen essay question because I'm a cretin! Durham must have looked past it... or they've only referred me to a college by mistake, which is very likely!

    Apart from receiving offers from places I thought would instantly reject me, the greatest shock was receiving an offer from Manchester. I can only assume they forgot the little incident wherein I called their Law department 'arrogant,' 'snobbish,' and 'guilty of relying on anecdotal evidence despite teaching a subject wholly focused upon logical or empirical substantiation.'

    Edit: I can only assume somebody reacted negatively to my comment about Manchester. I should clarify by saying that it's a very prestigious institution, with a wonderful record in Law and many subjects, and a world-wide reputation for excellent scientific research. Sadly, the admission criteria and 'black-list' of A Levels is repugnant. The university claims to cherish social mobility whilst the Law Department frowns upon certain A Levels, or even excludes from their offers, without any reliable evidence or empirical research to justify it. This is especially highlighted in areas such as the Law A level, since many of the top-ten have publically commended it and Cambridge includes it as a condition of offers based upon rigorous, scientific analysis of figures. Alternatively, Manchester gives a weak, anecdotal excuse related to the risk of ‘first years relying on A Level notes’ (which is more to do with a student’s laziness rather than the A Level). This is the reason for my comment.

    I can’t help it; I like to have contingencies because it’s possible that I might not meet the conditions of my offer at Cam. As a result, I would like Nottingham or Durham as insurance, which relies a great deal upon the LNAT. I know I did badly, so I’m worried about getting an offer from the former, and I expect the latter have referred me to a college by mistake, won’t have space at a college, or will have referred too many people for Law thereby rendering the referral void.

    However, the comment is very appreciated. I'd also like to congratulate you on your offer, Leeds is an excellent place and an excellent university. It's a great, great achievement and, hopefully, the first step on a very positive path. Congratulations!

    Hey, I've got an offer for Law with French from Cardiff too. Are you going to that open afternoon on the 23rd Feb?
    Hey, that's awesome! Well done. You're the only person I've come across (other than me) applying for Law & French. If you don't mind me asking, where else have you applied? Do you have any other offers? And where's your first choice?

    Yeah, I think I'll go to that, I went to look round Cardiff when it wasn't an actual open day, so it'd be good to see it when it's an organised event - are you going? If so perhaps we could say hi in person? xxx

    And I don't have an insurance, either; not yet, anyway. Having said that, I don't intend missing my conditional.

    I was rejected from Oxford, Interview from Kent and heard nothing from UCL or Warwick. The order at the moment is UCL, Warwick, Kent, Cardiff, but the bottom two could swap depending on what it's like there, as I haven't visitied either yet.
    Yes, I'm definately going (despite the 3-4 hour drive), as I haven't seen it yet. Yes, that would be good! I wonder how many offers they have given? x

    There is no way you could have fluffed your LNAT judging by your vocabulary and ability to put your argument across so eloquently! I'm risking sounding like a bimbo but seriously, I think you'll make a top law student! Well done with your offers!

    From Warwick, some people have offers. I, and I think most people, haven't heard anything other than "we make most of our decisions after the Ucas deadline."

    But yes, I want to hear one way or the other

    There have been quite a few LSE offers.

    In terms of Warwick they don't generally start offering students until March time. There have been a couple on here but I think to overseas students so they can sort out arrangements etc.

    Where else have you applied if you don't mind me asking?
