Anyone been to the London MET

I have just been accepted into the London Metropolitan University and wonder if anyone has been here/heard of it and could give a bit of feedback for me.

As far as I can see it is a bit of a rubbish uni, and considering I was offered a place unconditionally, no interview needed and solely on the basis of a photocopy CLE Diploma I have had some doubts about it.

Would love to hear what you think of it... I am still waiting to hear back from my other options, but it would be good to have some idea before I make a choice.

If you want to write me direct you can contact me on my account.

(apologies for any spelling mistakes -- my company's fire wall blocks the spell check :p )

Can't say I know the quality of the place, though I live not too far away and have a friend who went there. But the main thing is to be accepted by a uni, and you can always get transferred to another.

Personally I intend to go to Birkbeck, so I can continue working fulltime.

A very good friend of mine is a professor at the London Met. She was interviewed by Richard Dawkins for his book and documentary series. I can put you in touch with her if you want to ask further questions about the university. You can email me through my profile.

The school you choose to graduate from is a decision that will be with you the rest of your life--not to be made likely.

Of course, there are exceptions, but as a general rule, I would say go to the highest rank school you get accepted at...regardless of the cost. 10 years from now the difference in cost will seem stupidly worthless. (reply to this comment

While most commentators may think that rule applies to USA law schools, I am not sure it always applies elsewhere.(reply to this comment

Is that the best a budding lawyer can do? A caricature? Is it because the "always" in the comment you responded to can only be distilled to Harvard v. U Phoenix, and a graduate MBA degree at that?(reply to this comment

Average visitor agreement is 1 out of 5(Agree/Disagree?)

Ha. Nice try....try,y,y,y. The general way examples work is I get to chose the best ones to prove my point. You get to a) disagree with it, and/or b) come up with your own ones. Sounds like you could do neither. (reply to this comment

Thanks for reading me my rights and choices. Given my Hansel-imposed strictures, I choose (b). Under (b), I humbly submit to thee, Milord esquire etc., that there may be a number of countries, areas of study and/or other circumstances where cost matters (and/or can be better expended at other levels of study), because individuals in question may have life circumstances and/or lack or relatives which make that the betterb choice. Even many US law students find themselves so disillusioned in the jobs that they must take when they chose the top ranked school regardless of cost that one should Think. Or at least Try to.

Did you just not to read my comment in it's entirety (i.e., the part where I said "though there are exceptions...")? I know, it was a long three sentence paragraph. By the way, your mom just called. She sounded upset. She said for you to get off of her computer and clean your room or she's taking away your weed and teletubbies.(reply to this comment

Well Its sort of a given I wont be getting into Cambridge or Oxford. There is not even any point trying to apply to those places when you have a patchy education. All I want is the best second rate uni I can get lol.

The thing that puts me off the london met, is it seems to be composed entirely of Africans & Poles with very few local students. All the reviews I can find seem to be rather poor (except the ones written by the Poles, which naturally I dont trust).(reply to this comment

Other factors you may want to consider: What you are studying and where you want to work afterwards.

Business school is all about networking and making connections, so it doesn't sound like the right school for that. On the other hand, if planning on working outside the UK, no one will know the difference between UK school rankings so that will matter less. (reply to this comment

Frankly, it also depends what you're studying in determining which is a first rate university. Also, I think it might matter more in business, less in others like science.

As per the ones in London, UCL was rated 9th best in the world by THE (
I'd love to study there, maybe for my masters.

Then depending on which subject, to this comment
