    Are Law masters genuinely selective or is it relatively easy to get into a program?

    I ask because I applied to Warwick, Exeter, and Edinburgh LLM programs and I was accepted by all three. But I'll the best first to admit that my grades aren't the highest (I go to a Dutch university and have a 3.1 GPA out of 4) and that I have no work experience. My academic history is really as average as it's gonna get. Furthermore, I didn't even do a Law bachelor but Liberal Arts and Sciences with simply a major in law (and politics). So how come I was accepted by all three? Are these three just not good universities and should I apply to better ones or are all LLM programs just not that selective?

    Depends where you're off to really, Cambridge and LSE want Firsts/High 2.is, but other universities tend to be happy with a 2.i.
