LSE Admissions

Alright... I think I have cleard IELTS part.. It would go just the same.. And regarding your academic grades.. I cant really comment on that...As such.. I've heard about their world-class strictness but dont know if they can negotiate on this because it's just a point 1 difference... Would say... just keep your fingures crossd.. but give your best short in IELTS....

Hey!
I saw many people got "a decision has been made..." message and then got in. Am wondering whether all admissions come after that message? Are there people who get an offer without that message showing up at LSE for you?

No one got accepted without seeing that message?

are they still giving offers? The registration date is next week. And I suppose all decisions must have been made already (including a decision that you are on a waiting list etc etc).

is the "documents complete" mail the fourth one. I received the third mail on 17th jan and havent heard heard since then and so can't keep a track of my application.

Any suggestions about the course of action?

Hey,I just got a conditional offer from LSE.But I am a bit worried , since one condition is to obtain the overall mark of 7,5/10.I am afraid that i cannot achieve this grade.I expect a GPA 7,44/10.Is this an obstacle so as to have an unconditional offer?How strict are they regarding the grade??

Hi all,

since I don't find anything on the subject on the thread, I'd like to ask your opinion re the prospects of late applications (forth email: beginning of march). I had problems in gathering the required material before and, after all, they say they operate with no fixed deadline.
I also understand that the rule first come-first served applies, but I see that they still list the LLM (as well as my second choice) as available and that many people are still on the wait list.

Does anyone know how late comers were treated in the past?

By the way, it seems that they lowered the LLM Ibt TOEFL requirement (from 114 to 109). Just out of curiosity (did not have problems with the previous threshold): Did they lower the score because it was not in line with the IELTS requirement? Did they notice that not enough people were likely to jump the hurdle? Or did they consider their language requirement out of line with Oxbridge parameters (if I'm correct Cambridge accepts a 109)?

Many thanks and good luck to you all!

I would expect LSE to be a difficult program to gain admission to this late in the process. On one of the other LSE threads, however, an applicant who had been wait-listed for several weeks was just admitted, and so, I don't think it's impossible.

LSE is a competitive program. That is no surprise to anyone, I expect. There may be a number of places still available for top students. While I have no inside information or expertise, it would seem reasonable that a school like LSE would reserve their last places for top-calibre students, with a reserve of wait-listed applicants who can be given the places if no "better" applicants come along. (I do realize the harshness of the word in quotation marks. Don't lose your minds. Anyone admitted or wait-listed at LSE is already among the top LL.M. candidates, and I'm not denigrating anyone whether admitted, wait-listed or denied admission to this one particular program. Having said that, I do think that admission officers at various schools are in the position of drawing lines, however tasteless you may find their doing so.)

You may disagree with my assumption about how the admissions teams operate this late in the process, and I may, in fact, be entirely wrong about it. I'm open to being corrected. But, if you have a great application, my opinion is that you stand a chance, even in mid-March. If you think you are just a competitive, or a very good, candidate, you might consider waiting until next year, and, to that end, I don't know what an unsuccessful application this year will mean for your chances next year. There's no sense swimming after the boat that's already set sail if it means the next one, which you could very easily have boarded, won't pick you up because it just doesn't stop for swimmers flailing about in the water. It might be something worth considering, and I'm not sure I wouldn't just see if I could talk to someone directly at LSE about it.

Thank you, P_Martini,

as a matter of fact, my late application was something of a test on the points you mentioned.

My pristine intention was to apply to Oxbridge and LSE, but I ended up awfully busy with my job and missed the deadline for both Oxford and Cambridge.

I just thought that I could apply to LSE and then, in case I were admitted, decide whether to defer and try Oxbridge next year or just grab the London seat.

With the psycological advantage that, in case of rejection, I will always have the chance to console myself with the thought that I didn't get in because I applied outrageously late...and trying again next year.

I think I have a fairly strong application, measured by the most common standards (rank in class, grades, work experience, english language score). So, I'll wait and see and keep you informed on how the test ended.

Hi. Don't know who's next on the waiting list, but my fiancee has just rejected her LSE offer... I guess somebody may receive a very nice email soon. Best of luck...
