    I've applied to study English at Uni and plan to then do a Law conversion course. I know training contracts are EXTREMELY hard to get so don't want to make it any harder for myself in the future by making the wrong decision now.

    My question is- should I take my unconditional offer from Nottingham or my conditional from York ? Also, if I receive an offer from Durham would my chances of later getting a training contract be much higher if I took it?

    Also- is it very unlikely that I'll get a training contract in a city/ magic circle law firm without having gone to Oxbridge?

    If anyone actually takes the time to read all of this, thanks in advance

    Study law undergrad or something more employable at undergrad unless you are going to a top 5 uni(including oxford and Cambridge)

    A first is much harder to get in law (think 8%)
