LSE Admissions

Is speaking your problem? Because I think it is everyone's. I had 111 in my first toefl ever. 30 listening, 29 writing, 29 reading, 23 speaking.

Since then I did the test twice, and by no means could I reach 114. This worries me very much, but I still need to have a conditional offer to start acting.

I had 30 reading, 29 listening, 26 speaking and 22 writing.

My speaking went badly so that can improve, i screwed up my writing in one essay, where I had very bad grades. The other essay I had 4.0-5.0 very good. I know my english is very good and I can get more than 107, but 114 is very much :s

Hi there!!! well today I got rejected from LSE. I must admit I was actually beginning to believe I had a chance and well i m a little bit dissapointed. I guess LSE is not for me and I have to accept that and be happy. Thins happen for a reason.
Today Queen Mary sent an email saying that I got a conditional offer (no idea what is the condition I have to wait for the letter to arrive by post).
Still waiting to hear from UCL.
Edinburgh sent me a while ago an unconditional offer so Im I'll keep you informed!

Slightly off topic, but I have a quick questions about PhD's at LSE. What standard is required to be eligible? I have a 2:1 LLB (Limerick), and am doing an LLM (Cork), and will get a high 2:1 in that at the very least. Is this good enough to get into LSE? (I also have a BSc in computer science, which I did before I decided to get a real degree! lol)

I'm actually into my 12th week now and my LSE tracker has stayed just the same! "My application is under consideration". My application was completed (including references etc.) on the 3rd of November! Actually, I was wondering whether applying for the Graduate Support Scheme would delay processing my application because the tracker also says that as soon as I come to know the result of my application, I will also know the result of the GSS application. I still hate the wait though!
Also, I'd received a letter from UCL when my application was complete, saying that I should expect a decision by 26th January, which is today! I suppose it means that the decision shall be made by 26th January and I'll only come to know about it when I receive the letter (by post) and so that would mean a delay of some days more (I'm from India). Though I was wondering if I'll receive an email about the decision from UCL or not...

Hey, I'm in the exact same position. Everything had been submitted by the third of november and I'm still waiting for a decision from LSE. I hope for the best for you!

I'm in the exact same position. Have either of you (D10, JorisL, or anyone else under similar circumstances) considered contacting them? I'm uncertain as to proper protocol.

Hey LLM555

I have called them last week because they had sent me an e-mail about an LSE admissions event in Brussels where the main goal was to attract new students. Given the fact that I was already applying to their LLM programme, I found this message quite bizarre. When I called them to clarify whether this meant that I was rejected, the only thing they could tell me was that this event had no bearing on my application and that I just had to be more patient... So you could try contacting them, but whether it will have any effect is unlikely.

Thanks for the advice.

I decided to call anyways. They basically told me that the law department is one of the busiest and that all I could do was wait it out.

This is slowly making me crazy.

Tell me about it. I guess we'll just have to hang in there (and refresh that application tracker like an idiot).

Take care

They also deemed my application to be complete on Nov. 3 (and said that it would be sent for consideration on Nov. 10). So, it seems like there are a lot of us in the same boat, which presumably means ... more waiting!
