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.
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
Yes ofc makes sense. I just don't think it is automatically a lost battle. Also each year is different so we will see. I personally know someone applying for the UCL in March and still got in. I know this is LSE and not UCL but all in all, I do believe it is possible.
