Okay, so I've gotten almost all my offers back. King's College hasn't responded yet, but it doesn't matter since I'm not too keen on going there. I'm looking to firm either UCL or SOAS, but can't decide which one. They're both essentially right beside each other in terms of location. Here are the pros of each university (if it helps...):
- Pretty much one of the best universities in the world and London
- Brilliant connections and career prospectus
- I'd basically be set for the future (providing I get a minimum 2:1)
- Two of my friends already go there (to study Medicine and English Lit)
- Beautiful campus
- Again, a good university for Law (although, not as prestigious as UCL)
- Good connections with Magic Circle firms (recently, there were 6 students from SOAS that got a training contract from Clifford Chance)
- Means I can get the opportunity to specialise in international units, something not provided by other universities. Thus, will allow me to stand out for future - particularly when applying for a training contract.
- Opportunity to learn a new language alongside my degree
- It's a significantly smaller university, and I feel as though I'd 'fit in' better.
I'll edit and add stuff on if I've forgotten any main points.

I'd go for UCL but it's up to you. I wish I got an offer from UCL. There're so many people who would be so happy to get offer at King's or UCL as they're in top 20 so if you applied ,got offer why not to take it? You're blessed not everyone isLast edited by Carolinec1206; 21-02-2016 at 15:46.

You can learn a new language alongside your degree at UCL, as well.
Go for UCL.

As has been said, you can learn a language at UCL either by doing the Law with German/French/Spanish degree, by taking evening classes at the UCL Language Centre or with UCL's School of Slavonic Studies. SOAS is part of the University of London so you will also have access to their language centre if you want to learn a particularly obscure African or Asian language.
Personally I would go to UCL unless you were really interested in SOAS' course. You might be able to take an optional module at SOAS in your third year, ask UCL.
