Hi!

I noticed there wasn't a thread for specifically law applicants and, seeing as we're all eager to know when the offers will start going out, I've made this thread!

Initially, post in this format:
Course:
AS grades (predicted/achieved):
A2 grades (predicted/achieved):
LNAT score:
Current status: (not applied, applied, application acknowledged, interview, offer, rejection)

Feel free to ask any questions!

Do they interview all law applications that stand a good chance? If so, when do we find out?

Hi! applying2skool told me the following on the UCL general thread:
"If you have applied to one of our LLB Law with a European Legal System degree programmes (M141, M142, M144 and M146) programmes, and we are considering making an offer to you, we will invite you to attend an interview in order to assess your competence in the language of your programme.If you have applied to the LLB Law (M100) programme, and we have identified your application as requiring particular consideration, we may invite you to attend an interview as part of the application process."
There's also more info on what they're looking for, what to expect etc, so here's the link:
https://www.laws.ucl.ac.uk/study/und...rview-process/"
Hope this helps!

Not late at all - I'd be surprised if many law offers have even gone out at that stage.

Oh sweet- so are offers for law generally given out later than other subjects?

Definitely, especially at Russell Group unis (or specifically the top 10 for that matter). It's a combination of law being so competitive that there's a huge amount of applicants amongst few admissions tutors as well as them not wanting to be too hasty with who they give places to - it's as if law applicants get inadvertently pooled

If you're 80%+ sure it went bad, and I mean baaaaad then maybe apply to neither. 50% sure? Then just apply to one. Otherwise, both.

I think the LNAT is that kind of admissions test where you'll walk out there having absolutely 0 clue what is going to happen, the MCQs are unpredictable and the essay is obviously a subjective element.

So I think it's best you don't apply to 5 LNAT-requiring universities, but don't necessarily rule out ones you like because you think it went badly.

Thanks! But do you know if the LNAT essay, forget about the first section, the questions, matters a lot? Would they reject an applicant, only because their essay was really bad?

No, absolutely not. Unlike the UKCAT (for example), there is no definite 'pass mark' for any university. So, it'd be really unlikely for a university to reject someone based solely on the LNAT - they take a comprehensive approach looking at each and every aspect of the application. Don't worry yourself, the LNAT is by no means the be all and end all!
