well i'm no expert but after a comm/law degree you'd still have the bachelor of commerce under your belt, having the law degree would favour you for say, a promotion. legal knowledge is certainly very useful, but if you're wanting a commerce-related future then a lot of what you learn would be kinda irrelevant i would imagine. depends on whether you think it's worth it.

u won't get into combined law with 94.5, even with the five extra points. Cut offs will not be going down...

i got 98.05 and still won't get into sydney. It's really scary how high the uai for law is going. I wonder just how high it will go.

why must it keep increasing.. the same amount of people get each uai point each year.. is it just becoming more and more popular? what if there was a mass shift away from law this year towards other degrees, or if more people were able to get into medicine..

pray..

but nick also less places to fill is the main thing

but not 99.9X because there are 80 places and only about 100 people get 99.90-100

80/90 places at Sydney
but UNSW is staying around the 250 mark (including students who transfer, and graduate entry students)

I think its time for a Law entry test...similar to UMAT for Medicine..

90 for HECS? Do you mean 90 for Comm/Law or around 80/90 for undergraduate law as a whole? I am sure that the number is higher than the 90 in total (even with the 25% fee quota).

Note: What reduction in HECS funded places for 2004? They may cut a number of over enrolled places (if they exist), but that it is slightly different. Just remember that the reforms are set for 2005, so the 35% quota will only be reached from that year on.
