    - No other offers yet! I submitted in December tho, so I'm probably being considered with everyone who submitted on Jan 15.

    Did you apply through HKU or UCAS? - HKU
    IB Predicted? - 44
    Other offers? - Durham, University of York, KCL, HKU (LLB)

    One of my friends got an offer for interview! So perhaps decisions are going to come out soon?

    Hello! Congrats on such a high predicted, as well as all your offers! I've only heard back from Leeds so far, and all this waiting is making me anxious. When did you submit your HKU app?

    Thank you! I submitted my HKU application on November 12th and I just completed an interview for them on Jan 8th. I'm still waiting on news regarding the dual degree though...have you heard back by any chance?

    ahhhh I submitted my HKU app around that time too, but I never received any news or invitation to interview. I'm hoping that the decision comes out tomorrow though since HKU did say that they would get back in January. I haven't heard back on the dual degree either... Hopefully, no news is still good news? Fingers crossed!

    What was your friend's interview like if he/she had it already? Was it a general one (why did you choose this programme etc.) or was it a case study?

    Also, out of curiosity, what subjects do you take?

    If you don't mind me asking, what was your friend's predicted? I know there are only 5 spaces for local students to join the programme so I'm guessing you have to be getting IB45 (or 44) or full marks in DSE to be chosen, which is sad because that means I won't be getting a chance :'(

    I feel you... but it's still worth holding onto that small chance! What are your predicteds, if you don't mind me asking? And what other schools did you apply to, and have you heard back from any of them?

    Unfortunately no :/ How was yours? What type of questions did they ask - was it like a case study or were they general questions?

    It was quite general tbh, I was asked like what I think justice is and why i want to apply for this program. Interesting enough they asked me at the end would I value this course over Oxford Law. They also asked about my background since I was educated in 4 countries before.

    Hi, sorry for taking so long to reply. My friend's predicted a 45 and I think she just received an offer for this programme! I think if you haven't heard by now, chances are low that you'll get in. And I'm pretty sure they only offered interviews to 45ers since there are only 5 spots for the programme (if you apply through HKU).
