    So im currently applying to 5 diff British Law schools for the undergrad LLB. I will already have an undergrad degree from Brock University (Ontario, Canada). My High school average was 71% and my average from uni should be around 68-70%. Now considering my marks are low can i expect to get any offers? I also have significant work experiance in a law firm more than most students. ALso i have a killer resume with managerial work experiance.

    They don't just take your marks into account...they also look at your personal statement. You just have to show them that you are very passionate about law and really want to study it.

    Newcastle's a fantastic city and a good university.

    Greetings, fellow Canadian! Best of luck with whichever uni you choose and I agree with the above post, that Newcastle is a city with a lot happening. You definitely wouldn't be short of a nice social life there.

    I'm from BC and also applying to UK LLB programs, albeit I'm applying straight from high school. I'm curious as to which subject your degree was in.

    Also the experience in the law firm will be a nice component to your personal statement. Anyways, I wish you luck with your choices.

    Manchester is meant to be quite tricky to get into.

    I've already sent my UCAS application back in October. You should try to finish it as soon as possible.
