No, I havent heard from them either!
LSE has already admitted and rejected some students so we just have to wait!

You seem to have applied way before me and still no answer. According to the previous posts it is a good sign for you and me that we have not been rejected so far.

So much anxiety...

Once again, may I wish one and all the best of luck in obtaining an unconditional offer of admission. In the meantime, you may want to read this article by the Financial Times:

So what does the article imply if one read it from top till the end? Avoid foreign universities in favour of ones at home because you have a better possibility of ending up in the highest positions.?

It implies that an LSE degree is recognised internationally, beyond the United Kingdom. In the case of this article, in the United States. Pure and simple.

I went by the percentages, which seemed to have been the focus of the article. No offence was meant to your alma-mater or to any sensibilities and senstivities attached to its alumni...

A British education, by extrapolation, is recognised beyond the shores of the United Kingdom, and this includes the United States.

Statutory Warning!! The author of the above qouted post is urged not to take the comments seriously.

Hypothesis: It is one of the paradoxes of modern day consumerism that branding of saleable products is given the highest importance without any detailed reference to qualitative and quantitative content and individual and relative suitability of the matter contained.

Example: The above-referred article contains reference to 3 alumni of the LSE who have been chosen to either head or hold substantive posts in the departments concerned within the government of US of A. However, the relevance of the said article to the legal field is hard to understand as all the 3 appointments have no connection (proximate or remote) to the field of law.

If anything, this only proves the age-old statement that the brand of LSE arises from its expertise and success in the fields of economics, finance and political science and that this brand has been imported to bring into limelight other lesser departments and to create lop-sided and over-emphasised ranking structure of the latter..

The hyperlinked article should merely be used as a guide or reference for those whose applications are pending with the Graduate Admissions Office. Emphasis is placed on the word "may" which is directory rather than mandatory: "you may want to read ..." There is no compulsion, moral or legal, for one to even click on the above hyperlink. That is up for the readers of the post to decide. Just some additional information of interest to those who are accepting an unconditional offer of admission.

As I recall in previous threads, there are prospective students who are seriously considering sending applications to the MSc programme, notably that of the MSc in Human Rights, Law and Accounting, or other social science, aside from the LLM. Be that as it may, the School's conceded expertise in economics, finance and political science has resulted in LLM specialisms in, among others, Banking and Financial Regulation/Securities Law, Commercial Law, Taxation, Intellectual Property Law, Human Rights Law and International Business Law.

Hi guys

I received the message below on my LSE tracker. Is this a good or bad sign?

'A decision has been made on this choice and is being processed. Processing involves checking by a senior member of staff, and occasionally verification of one or more details by your Department. Most decisions will be finalised and appear here within one or two working days (remember to allow for weekends!), however if we require clarification from the Department your status will remain unchanged for longer periods. No further information is available until all checks have been completed, and the decision will be posted here first.'

I have no inside information on LSE whatsoever, but I'd guess that's good news!

I doubt they'd make a decision to reject you, but then leave it contingent on double-checking a few particulars.

"The Nagle's out of here, but only if his referees actually dislike him as much as they say they did. We'd better get them on the phone."

"There's no way we're letting The Nagel in with three straight years of an F+ average. Let her know we're rejecting her just as soon as we double check the alphabet to make sure we know where F is. It's after B, right?"

I'd say you've got cause for hope!

I agree with what Bender said. Good luck!

Since someone is going to ask you, it might as well be me: when did the LSE deem your application to be complete?

I see. A while back I read some LSE admissions threads from last year, and if my memory serves me correctly, people who got the message that you just received did indeed get an offer a few days later. You might want to check out those old threads, if you haven't already! All the best.
