US high school student applying to Oxford law??
My top choice is definitely the Oxford law program, and I know that there are certain academic criteria. My question is, since the cut off score's already pretty high, do going above and beyond the requirements help? or is it if you meet the requirements, you're on a level playing field?
Also, i know for law you have to take the LNAT, which is super important. So I'm wondering what's a good score on the LNAT in order to stand out (above average at least) to the admissions team?
For reference, I got a 35 on the ACT and a 1510 on the new sat. I got 5's on 7 AP tests (Chinese, English Language, Environmental science, macro, us history, comparative government and US government), but i got a 4 on Calculus BC (5 on the AB subscore).my senior year schedule has 6 more AP classes as well. I haven't taken any subject tests yet, but plan on taking the literature and math 2 in August.
Also, as far as subject tests go, I'm fairly confident in the math 2 one, but i got really low scores on practice literature tests. Since I have to report all scores to Oxford, is it better to wait until I submit my UCAS to take the literature test (so the people won't see my bad score)?
any comments/advice much appreciated! thanks!
