I’m a current American junior with a few questions about applying to Scottish universities through UCAS
- If you meet the minimum requirements on the university’s website for a program, is that usually a decent indicator that you will get in, or is it more like American schools where you still have to impress them through other aspects of an application, go above and beyond?
- Is it one flat fee to apply to all five schools, or is 25 pounds for each school that you apply to? I can’t seem to find any information on the website specifically concerning application fees, and I have a budget from my parents on how much we can spend.
I have a 3.7 GPA, I’m set to pass all of my relevant AP exams (I intend to study law, so English and Government matter the most, I’d imagine), and I have a 27 ACT that I expect to go up when I retake this February. My top choice is currently University of Aberdeen or University of Glasgow, and I technically will meet the minimum requirements for both of them. I’m just not sure if I should treat these schools like targets, reaches, or safeties since I just BARELY meet the listed requirements for LLB students.
