    Hey Ive just rang the admissions office and they said that it will be in essay form.. mostly logic and reasoning. You don't really need to have any knowledge about law and they said you can't prepare!

    Im not reluctant, I would have just prefered it to be more like a skills assessment test.

    You wrote your last post as if you were very grumpy .. maybe it was just the impression i got.
