Is there any interest in developing a second thread for people attending LSE for the 2018-2019 term? It might be nice to get something going where we can meet each other and discuss housing, pubs, etc


Have you created the thread yet? I would be interested since I also intend on attending LSE in the 2018-2019 session =)

For reference purposes: my app was completed on Jan 12th and my status in LSE for You is yet to change. I'm afraid I will have to wait a bit more - it's been 8+ weeks already - but I suppose it's the same for all "late appliers". Best of luck to everyone.

I applied to LSE early February so I suppose I have a while to wait then. Do they continue to do rolling offers or are you suggesting that they lump all the late appliers together? Thanks

Congratulations! Did they send you an email or do we have to check the Graduate Application Tracker regularly?

Check tracker, I got the offer on there before the email - still haven't received email notification.

Thank you very much. Though, I guess I have to wait another week as my application was complete on 2nd Feb.

My offer showed up on LSE for You half an hour ago. They say they sent the official offer letter by mail on Mar 9th, so they did keep the 8 week mark!

in case this can be helpful to anyone:
My application was submitted January 18th and I just got a conditional offer today. I got an email and it says that the paper version of the offer was sent out on the March 9th.

Anyways, since I won‘t be able to meet my conditions in time, I will probably have to reject this offer.

Good luck to everyone!

Hi guys,

Hope you have successfully applied for the LLMs related to this post. I have a doubt and would like to hear from you a suggestion.

I received offers from QMUL, KCL and UCL. My applications for LSE and Cambridge were unsuccessful and I am still waiting for the answer from Oxford (MJur).

I have a quite strong background in arbitration (work experience in law firms in Sao Paulo and London), participation in Moot competitions (as arbitrator, speaker and coach for my university), participation in Arbitration Academy, etc. This is to say: I want to focus my career on international arbitration and to work in a law firm in London, to live permanently there, and don't come back to my country.

Considering this, what university you understand I should choose: LLM in Com. and Int. Disp. Resol. at QMUL (very focused in arbitration); LLM in Int. Bus. Law at KCL (more prestigious university); LLM in Int. Disp. Resol. at UCL ?

My major concern is about employability. Do you think there is a huge difference for employers between those universities?

I tend to accept the offer from QMUL because it has a program more focused on arbitration. However, I heard that QMUL is not so prestigious when compared to KCL and UCL.

Good luck to everyone.

Guys, for those of you who recieved conditional offers from LSE, what percentage have they offered you?. UCL's condition was just a 2:1 (60%). I'm wondering what LSE's might be as I am hoping to recieve a conditional acceptance from them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My condition for LSE is just a 2:1 (60%) but I heard their usual offer is 65%.

My condition for LSE is a 1st, so it likely depends on how consistent of a track record you have; my first year grades were significantly worse than my second year.

Hi Guys, I am currently a second year LLB student at a low ranking UK university. Im just wondering the entry requirements for LSE not as stated on their website. For example, is work experience required for entry? Furthermore there seems to be discrepancies with the grades required from 60-70% (2:1-1st). Currently I am on track for a mid 2:1 grade. So would it be worthwhile pursuing LSE as an option, or would one suggest that the odds are stacked against me.

In my experience none of the London universities are that selective, so either way if you have a 2:1 you have a good chance of getting in.

Kill yourself this year and score the best grades possible. Trust me, your time will be paid off.

Hey, anyone with a UCL offer who knows what they are doing/where to look for accommodation? For domestic students at least they don't have university accommodation so if anyone has advice on where to look for (relatively) cheap student rooms I'd appreciate it.

Hi guys, ı applied for KCL and my application status on the portal is still shown as 'submitted'. Will this change to 'under consideration' or anything else? I already e-mailed them but no answer so far.
Thank you in advance
