Prospective (international) undergraduate law students 2017 Watch
There are simply too many threads/discussions on prospective law students applications in TSR! However, there are few threads for international students who wish to study Law in the UK! As such, I would like to start this discussion so that we can all share our application status thus far as well as perhaps make some potential new friends prior to going to the UK!
For myself, I come from Singapore. Finished serving my 2 years of Army and am gonna start my undergraduate study in 2017. Was rejected from local law schools twice (applied in 2015 and 2016) because I obtained a C grade for one of my A-levels subjects! Then received a call from the local National University of Singapore Law Faculty telling me that the law course is too competitive and I am better off studying overseas.
Applied to the following:
1) Cambridge (St. Edmund's College; Interview and CLT completed; Pending)
2) LSE (Pending)
3) UCL (Pending)
4) Durham (Offered)
5) Bristol (Offered)
GCE A-Levels: 3 H2 As (Physics, Chem, Math), 1 H1 A (Econs) and 1 H2 C (Knowledge & Inquiry)
You can share your university choices, grades and/or your background story if you'd like!
The third is because I'm tired of studying my entire life in Singapore. It is so mundane and academically focused. I wanted to have the experience of living in a different country for some time and be independent. While I believe that, to a certain extent, the lifestyle of studying in top universities may not necessarily be very different from that of Singapore, it is still a breath of fresh air, one that I desperately need!
