Any one received LSE offer?

According to Lucy Wright from LSE the TOEFL/IELTS doesn't effect whether you receive an offer or not. It's all about your academic achievements.

Good. So anything over 7,5 is satisfactory.

Hi,

I have a friend from LSE and he said that they do not insist on TOEFL/IELTS scores if you can produce evidence of your medium of instruction in ur LL.B course was english.

But all said and done no one can undermine a score of 8.5/9 as it is very high and surely that must give an edge over an applicant you would have scored the same marks in graduation.

Hence, chances of getting through with 8.5/9 in IELTS are any day high....

Hey thanks! No such luck, though, my LLB was in Portuguese.

My friends who applied for MBAs told me that for GMAT purposes anything under 700/800 is not enough for a high-level program.

Well, I am guessing that they will probably release the results only after the 20th of Jan.

As soon as I hear something I will post it here.

Good luck to you all!

Good luck to all. Just to correct my earlier post - I got the email dated 17/1, but when I checked the graduate application tracker on the "LSE for you" page, it indicated that the offer letter had been sent on 11/1.

Thanks for the information. Any one with his/her application completed on or after 15/11 received an offer?

Just received a conditional offer from LSE :-)

I applied on 15/11, the condition is to obtain 1st class honour.

In LSE for You, it is said: "Your original offer letter was sent on 12 January 2012 to the correspondence address above. Please allow 28 days for delivery."

Dear cng1238, did they just update your status on Lseforyou, or you hadn't been checking it since the 12th?
Funny they are sending e-mails a week after posting the offer.
I guess their warning "The tracking system is linked dynamically to our computer system. The information you see displayed here is the same information we hold on our database" is not really precise...
My application was completed around November 13th, but my status is still under consideration by the department.
Congrats to all who have received offers!

In fact I have not yet received any email from LSE, only the status was changed in LSE for You about an hour ago. I guess you are right their claim that LSE for You is always update is not true. Good luck and I am sure you will hear from them soon.

Good luck to you, it's a terrible situation to have to wait another 8 weeks or more to get a decision.

The waiting list is different from the reserve list, check it out:


I have been placed on a Waiting List. Does this mean I will get a place or not?

Being put on the waiting list is not an offer of a place, but neither is it a rejection. Selectors will usually place a candidate on the waiting list if they are not willing to offer them a place outright, but consider them strong enough to potentially be given a place on the course. After they have reviewed more applications, the waiting list candidates are returned to the selectors who will make a final decision. Final decisions for applicants on the waiting list are made up to 8 weeks after the initial waiting list decision.

If you are placed on the waiting list for your first choice and then subsequently offered a place on your second choice, the selectors for your first choice will be asked to make a final decision on your application. Any offer on your first choice will take precedence. It is not possible to hold more than one offer of a place.

Am I guaranteed a place if I am on the reserve list?

No. If you are a strong candidate, but the course you have applied for has reached its quota, the department may place you on the reserve list. These applications are held in the event of other candidates with an offer withdrawing from their places. In this case the department will review the reserve list applications, and select the most suitable candidate(s) to fill any place(s) that have become available. Final decisions on all reserve list candidates will be made during mid August.

Applicants who are on the reserve list but who are not subsequently offered a place are able to reinstate their application for the following year at no extra cost. Instructions on how to do this will be in the final decision letter.

Can I ask you what your application looked like? (grades, extracurricular..)

I'm really anxious my grades won't be good enough to get in.. Are they really that strict on e.g. obtaining 70%?
