Sorry to hear legalbee! I myself have not heard anything back from LSE.

I received an offer from UCL Thursday, there is a delay with UCL this year, everyone who submitted the written work around November and hence 'completed the application' should receive a response next week.

(LSE THREAD HERE) Hi guys, I just have a question because I saw this "transcript moving down" thing today and I've started to lose my ****. I am a strong 2:1 student with a chance for 1st (but my transcript says 2:1) from the University of Aberdeen. I've got good references and an OK personal statement (who knows what is good and what is not haha.) I applied for a Masters in Laws back on the 5th of November. Since the 6th, my application has been "under consideration by the department." It's been almost 8 weeks and I noticed that the status of my second choice changed to: "Your application is held pending further preliminary documentation - see the section headed 'documentation' below." And apparently, it seems like this is a sign that the decision has been made. However, I have no idea when exactly the status has changed and I have received no info from the uni up to this point.

I am really worried about that transcript thing, because in my case, the transcript is third from the top (I don't think it moved at all) and says: LLB (Hons) with English Law from University of Aberdeen (Copy Received); references still contain email addresses which I've heard is also a bad sign. For the above reasons, I am really worried now. Could you tell me if my case is hopeless?

Also, have you got any emails from LSE whatsoever since you applied? I have not and I'm worried that I did something wrong.

Good luck everyone with your apps!!!

Hello Mikolaj,

In relation to your second choice...

'Second Choice: Why is my second choice showing as incomplete even though all documents have been submitted?
If your second choice is in a different department to your first it will not be considered unless you are unsuccessful for your first choice. This means that the web tracker will continue to display the default message that your application is incomplete even if all documents have been received. If you are unsuccessful for your first choice your second choice status will then be updated.'

Your first choice must be considered before your second choice ^.


In Relation to your time frame...

LSE advise a decision will be made in approximately 8 weeks. I also submitted early November I have the same status as yours 'under consideration by department'. The likely explanation is due to the holidays and busy academic period.

From posts on this forum and elsewhere, students usually receive their offers in the month of January from LSE, rejection letters are sent out earlier so this is a positive sign and means that your application must be worthy for further consideration.


I suspect that you, myself and other applicants will receive some form of response within the next 2 weeks.

Thanks for your answer! Does it make any difference if my second choice is in the same department?

Good morning guys! Happy new year to everyone.

I was wondering If you remembered if the status on the application tracker of LSE has always been "under consideration by the department" or if, previously, it was "under consideration by the admission office".
I don't remember it, and I am trying to figure out if there has been a progress with my application.

Thank you!

Oh, ok! Thank you :)

I was under the illusion that there had been some kind of progress...

Hi! I have applied for QMUL and KCL about 3 weeks ago and still waiting. However, I am considering applying to UCL in a few days. I wonder what do you guys think about the timing? Is it late for UCL to apply in January?

I have the same question. I am waiting for the results of the first phase of Chevening (a scholarship award for Brazilian students). However, I did not apply for UCL yet. The same for University of Bristol.

Is it too late?

Same here! I am currently writing my master thesis, so I don't have much time to write the essay for UCL. I think I could apply by February 10th. What do you guys suggest? Is it too late?

---> LSE FINANCIAL SUPPORT <---

Good morning guys! Do you know, by chance, if it is possible to apply for financial support after receiving an offer? ALERT: not my case! I haven't heard back from LSE, still waiting.

I've just spoken on the phone with KCL and LSE admissions. Both of them warned me that there is a delay on their responses, but that within the next two weeks I could probably expect an answer. My application for LSE was completed on 1 Nov and for KCL on 28 Nov.

I can confirm that. I've just called LSE and they told me I'll be receiving an answer within the next two weeks minimum (applied on Nov 22).

Oh my, this wait is killing me, as I have not applied to other London unis yet...

Does "minimum" mean in two weeks latest or that it could potentially also be longer?

My application to LSE has been unsuccessful for LL.M.

However, in their email they suggest that I apply for the MsC in Law and Accounting as I will be more suitable.

In my application perhaps I made the mistake of talking too much about my background in finance.

I am wondering if any unsuccessful applicants have received emails like this?

Also I am unfamiliar with the Law & Accounting Msc, is it regarding as being in the same league ?

Guys do you know if it's not too late to apply for the LLM at KCL? I think they have rolling basis admission... However, If it's not too late, how have you got any tips how to ace this app?

Hi guys!

Has anyone heard back from LSE yet? Maybe early appliers...? As I read, they're sending out rejections these days but I was curious to know if any of you received an offer already.

Thank you and good luck to everyone!
