Heyy, I don't think that there's a specific amount of time it takes because it depends on the time you submit your application and if there are already a bulk of application to check, but most likely before February

It depends on where you're applying from and what kind of qualifications you already have. From my experience with my son having already taken enough AP's to get unconditional offers from certain univerisities meant he heard pretty quickly. If you've already got the grades and are going to pay double the fees that UK students pay they'll probably let you know fairly quickly

Just had a look at the website. It seems like they equate a 32 at ACT to A*AA, which is the requirement for Law. However, given that Law is a competitive course I think you'd also need a strong transcript and GPA with AP courses in the humanities (essay writing) with scores of A's and 4's or 5's in the exams, to be sure. I know Exeter is literally the only UK Uni that will accept just an ACT score if it's high enough, but I expect there's a lot of competition for places so if you really want to go there you should have a well rounded application with a very law specific personal statement. You know that you will learn British law, right? Have you visited Exeter? It's pretty but quite small Good luck - let me know if I can help any more.

Oh well, scratch what I said about a US application. Have you checked your country specific qualifications against what they want for law? If so you and you already have what they need you have a pretty good chance of an early offer, bearing in mind what I said in my last reply. Good luck!

yes, I checked my country's specific requirements and I have grades above entry requirements with some unpaid legal work experience.

If you're applying this Autumn it's a bit late to take up an AP if youre not already in the class, unless you are self studying? It's hard for me to advise you specifically, not knowing what country your coming from and what qualifications you have / will have. Generally essay based subjects are good for law, I think. There are no specifically required subjects though, which is good. If you like you can pm me what country you are from and what your qualifications are? I'm happy to advise more but I'm sure there are others on here with a better knowledge of Exeter law, I'm speaking more from an international applicants perspective (or their mum! )
