Hi did you receive a confirmation email after the submission? I did not receive any confirmation that my submission is accepted or not.
Btw, I did a economics question.

Hey there! I believe if you log back into the registration page you can check the status of your submission- it will most likely say accepted, in which case you're all set!

If you don't mind me asking, which economics question did you tackle? They all looked very difficult so I decided to do a law and history essay instead lol.

Yep, I submitted a law and history essay!

Which law question did you choose? All of them looked really interesting to try but I decided to go with the first one.

Sorry for the late reply!


You did the first question too, that's awesome! I definitely found the question difficult in the sense that there were SO many ways to go about it and set up an argument. I ended up arguing that having more women on the Supreme Court wouldn't bring more justice since I personally think that's true and there were plenty of ways to defend my claim. How did you go about answering the question?

I was contemplating trying the second one, it was super cool! I had a few ideas but couldn't quite come up with a solid idea for an essay though haha. What'd you argue for the second question?

Hi they come out on the 31st of July!
I did, it was a long journey writing it but I’m so glad I did, even if I’m not shortlisted tomorrow. I did question 1, which did you do and what did you argue?

I also did law Q1 and opposed the statement. I talked about gender dichotomy, affirmative action and patriarchy. Honestly don’t know if they were any good…
Hey, good luck to everyone for tomorrow’s results! Does anyone know what percentage of applicants normally get shortlisted (for Law)?

Hey!! I'm a student from New York and I did Psychology Q3! Was this a popular question this year, and for those that did it, how was it?

Also, good luck to everyone!
