For those who applied to LSE!
The 8 week mark that LSE takes to make a decision starts when the application is submitted with both references or when the ID is received?

To my knowledge, it refers to the date on which you receive your applicant ID

I also applied to KCL on January 17, and nothing has changed in my status since then. It’s quite frustrating now.

Is anyone else still waiting to hear back from UCL? I cannot imagine that waiting 11+ weeks for a response is good news for me :(

I received my applicant ID on 20 December and I have yet to hear anything. However UCL took equally long to get back to me - over ten weeks until I received an offer.

I applied to QMUL on the 18th for the LLM (General) programme, and my referee submitted his reference the following day in the evening. I am aware that postgraduate study is generally less competitive than undergraduate study but I have come across a very small number of posts about people being rejected from QMUL. If it helps, I achieved a 2.1 (62.48% overall) at Birkbeck in the Law LLB with three first class module marks during the third year and as far as I know, this does not necessarily guarantee me a place at QMUL but it's the majority of the battle. Is QMUL particularly competitive for the LLM (General) programme? Do undergraduate grades hold the most weight? Or would there be an equal distribution of weight between the grades, personal statement and reference.

Hi everyone,
Is it only one applicant who mentioned that got rejected because the slots at LSE have been filled in? Has anyone else got rejected and got the same email?
I submitted my application at the beginning of Feb

I also applied in Feb and I don't think the slots have been filled up as the whole application is still open. Sending these types of emails in ongoing period acknowledging that the slots have been filled while keeping the application process open for anyone to apply, would constituted a deception. I really do not think that LSE would do something like that. Thus, I believe until they have received and processed certain number of applications which according to their calculations is sufficient, leading to inability to apply, it is all fine.

I think it's a combination of all. I received a conditional offer from QMUL on 23/2 and I think my grades, PS, Reference and CV made impact.

It does seem odd to keep the applications open if the slots have been covered but if you have a look at last year’s discussions students who applied in Feb or later got into a waiting list. Of course some of them just got rejected.

I do hope you are right though and that’s not the case at all. I only restated what other applicants have said as I don’t have a personal experience yet

Thanks for your response, I did not know that they could hand out offers over the weekend, so that's also good to know.
