At the moment I'm just finishing my as levels, I'm doing four and aiming for a a a and b ... I'm looking at lse, kings college and ucl but I'm just wondering how difficult it really is?? I mean say I do get AAA in my a levels will it matter that I don't have masses of extra curricular stuff??

I'm going to be shadowing a few lawyers over summer but Ive never been captain of a team or done debating and I don't know if it matters? And how leneant are they on your grades; would I probably not get in with AAB??

Read "Understanding law" by Adams and Brownsword and the broadsheets.

Start to get to grips with a legal issue or two and talk about it in your PS. This is a really good way to show that you have dedication and that you really want to do the subject - so much better and more important than work experience and ECs.

Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds are suppose to be great for students. And if you already live in London, wouldn't a change be good. For 3 years you live in a new city and you will always know you still have your home in london when you finish.

Well you will be surrounded by students etc, clubs will be filled with students and when you walk round you just feel included. At London I just dont think you would get that same sense of community you get at some unis. However, i have heard really good things for the UCL social life!
Really??!!
I heard UCL is the most social university in london. I have friends already there, and from what i heard its sounds crazy over there

Really demonstrate an interest! Read books like "Understanding Law" by Adams and Brownsword and demonstrate a interest in some sort of legalistic issue on your personal statement
