Have you got an offer?

What would be a high 2:1? - what percentile would it typically be? (I suppose a first is more or less top 5%?)

Hey everyone,

Just FYI, I got a conditional offer yesterday. My file was complete on Nov. 3 and sent for consideration on Nov. 10, so I heard 13 weeks later. Good luck to everyone who is still waiting -- I know that the wait can be frustrating!

Thanks for letting us know Northener. I am in my 12th week and it is indeed frustrating. Guess I should wait for another 10 days from now.

Skal - why don't you give them a call? Did they tell you to wait?

Generally, just to repeat my quetsions before, does anyone know what percentile does a "Top 2:1" represents in England?

I did give them a call and the lady told me that the selector is sitting on my file for some reason and she would chase him up but nothing has happened yet. I have started to be pessimistic with this.

Skal - maybe the selector is busy on something. But it does suggest that it is a bit of a lottery (to the extent whether your selector is quick in responding). I thought I read in another thread that slow progress may not necessarily be a bad sign (I suppose rejection should be the quickest respond)? Which area/specialisation are you applying for? I applied for corproate commercial so perhaps we are on the same boat!

A 2.1 is the standard mark, 60 - 69%. Most people who graduate from UK universities leave with a 2.1. If you dont get a 2.1 you are an idiot. The difference between 60 and 69 is however, massive.

Thanks Farmer. i am a tax specialist - so all of the tax subjects......very near to yours. Rejection should be the quickest but I dont understand selector's confusion with my application. If he finds me good enough to not to keep me on waiting list then he should give me an offer! sigh.......the wait is frustrating.

c-j-h - so would you say getting a 2:1 with 67-69 should usually put you in the top 10-20 percent of the class in any event?

Skal - I know exactly what you mean. At least you are in the Wait List which means that there is a pretty good chance still (whereas for me, my application is still "under consideration") Like you said, i just want to find out and then move on.

67-69 would do for sure. Some UK candidates have offers to LSE for 66%.

You got me wrong Farmer. I am not in the wait list, my application is still under consideration. all I was saying was that if the selector is not able to make up his mind, then he should put me on wait list but the status should move on from 'under consideration' which is frustrating me now.

Sorry Skal to have misunderstood you - hopefully we will get to hear from them - one way or another....

I was confused from this "2:1" "67%" etc talking. I dont understand what these standards mean. I have a 8,5/10 grade from University of Athens Law School and this represents 1% ranking in 2005 graduates -8th from 774- (in athens law school there is 1 graduate with an average above 9 every 2-3 years). how is that translated in 2:1 and etc form?
Furthermore... I am going to apply tomorrow and i admitt that i am not used to -by-post-applications...
Please give an answer to the following if you know: What is the reputation of greek universities in LSE and other good english universities, and especially as far as law is concerned? i know that city un. is athens' "suburb", however i am afraid about the discrimination of my application due to my university's (athens law school) overall reputation....
On the other hand, many here say that high grade graduates from athens have an easier admission, because of our -to be sure- difficult and often unfair process of grading and graduating...

Hi guys, can any one tell has there been any rejection so far from LSE? My application has entered its 11th week and the status is still the same "under consideration"...... does LSE send rejections only in the end by bulk mail??!!

That's exactly what I was going to post here. If what you are suggesting is the practice, then I think those of us who have not received feedback should be a bit nervous....

Have you tried to call them to find out what's happening? I think we are allowed to call after 8 weeks right?

That may not be completely true, a couple of people I know got "we regret to inform you" witin 8 weeks. In fact "under considerations" is a good sign. Don't worry! Where else have you all applied?

Good sign, I think you have priority over us who have been placed on the waiting list.
