    Hi!
    I'm an EU student who's graduating Upper Secondary School this year and wants to study law in the U.K. next year. I've currently put Warwick as my firm choice as I know that they have an excellent reputation for Law. However, since I badly want to get a job at a Magic Circle/US top Law firm after graduation, I am now considering maybe taking a gap year and re-applying to better Unis such as Oxford and Durham next year. Would it be worth it, or am I just being unnecessarily paranoid?

    Warwick will get you to MC.

    It depends on whether you're willing to take a year out, and whether you think you have a good chance of successfully applying to Oxford.

    I second the above comment. It depends on whether you want to take a year off to apply for Oxford and Durham. Otherwise, you will have a good chance of making it to the MC provided that you have the grades and skills.
