I have applied to study law at Oxford, Durham, LSE, Warwick and Manchester. I have been rejected from Oxford, but I have decided to reapply again next autumn, after receiving my IB exam results.
The thing that concerns me is: If I receive an offer from all (or some) of my other choices during this academic year, I would still decline the offers, since I want to apply again next year. But when I apply next year, I would apply for 5 unis again, and I would choose LSE, Warwick, Durham and Manchester again as the other choices besides Oxford. However, won't it be perceived as negative if I decline an offer one year but then apply for the same uni and the same course next year? Maybe they won't give me an offer then?? How would LSE take this?

I doubt it would even register with them. The universities read thousands of applicants and they may not remember yours next year.

To be honest, what'd be the point in applying to them all again, seeing as you're quite obviusly only thinking of Oxford?

As long as you don't mess the unis about they won't care. So make sure you decline them by the deadline set by UCAS. Don't tell them you're attending and then phone them the day before.
But really you might as well cancel them all now if you're not going anyway.
