LSE applicants 2013/2014

I do NOT think it is stupid to consider the atmosphere as a decisive factor of your final choice. So did I ...You will spend one year of your time and a lot of money there...

A good friend of mine is in the 2012/2013 LLM class at LSE and told me that the people are all very friendly and they have a great time together. Nevertheless most of the people there are really hard working and competitive which is not surprising when you look at their entry requirements. The leisure time activities are more focused on professional issues like accounting society and the great evening lectures. It's up to you wether you find this attractive or not.
But considering that you got into LSE your other choice will most likely be a very good program as well. So you cannot make a really bad decision;)

Anyways, LSE receives an insane amount or applications for all of their programs. Therefore, I think they do a very good job in selecting people ;)

I wis you all good luck with your application!

Congrats Anina, so I guess we'll meet in October!

I think the "overall atmosphere" issue is not stupid at all, but I'm not concerned, I'm sure there will be nice people, competitive or not, and that's confirmed from what I'm reading in this discussion. I really think we should meet once we're all in London, maybe we can discuss it later on.

In the meanwhile, best of luck to all applicant still awating for a response!

I agree. I think there are all kinds of people everywhere (good or bad). And there is no use pretending that we are all very laid back & party animals - that is just not the way you get into LSE.

However, I am a bit worried about the level of the course and me being able to keep up with the others.

Do you have any info about LSE accommodation? where would be the best to stay?

Best of luck tothe ones still waiting

Hey guys,
One question for those who have applied and received a reply from LSE - do we have to keep checking LSE for you or do they send us an e-mail letting us know that the status of our application has changed?
Thank you!


I received an e-mail with all the info....
However, if I were you I would keep checking LSE for you every few days, because there were some problems with my application durring the application process...and I am not sure if "things" work as they should.

But yes, I got an e-mail saying right away that I was offered a place, so I guess it is safe not to check LSE for you every 5 minutes. It is better for your mental health too;)
Best of luck!

I received an e-mail anticipating the offer (that arrived me by post a few days later). I also checked my LSE4You account daily (because I was quite impatient) but the mail arrived before they updated the system...

I've received an offer from KCL, but a rejection from UCL. Does anyone know if this means all hope is lost for my LSE application? Be honest! Thanks :)

I have received offers from both KCL and LSE; however, My application for UCL is unsuccessful. So I hope my fact may answer your question.

I do not think that by being accepted by LSE and rejected by UCL mean that the LSE criteria is lower than UCL.

I hold an LLB with second honour class from my country, nevertheless, the score is below than what UCL expecting, which are above 80/100, verbally informed via phone by an admission officer.

Also, I hold LLD and LLM and work as a lecturer in law at a public university in my country. More importantly, I did a number of research and articles. Therefore, I think LSE look more through my background, while, UCL concentrate only on my undergraduate academic merit.

Good luck to all of you.

I got into all three and by the time it took them to answer me I believe that LSE was the hardest one for me to get in (I got an offer from KCL and UCL really fast)...probably because I am young and without "real" working experience...Just a guess.

It probably depends on when you applied and what are your qualifications (LSE is supposed to prefer students with working experience ect...) so I would not give up just yet. There are no specific rules...

Good luck!

From my point of view despite from king's the application process is rather unreliable so I do not think anything is lost concerning LSE. You must also take into consideration that all three only take a certain amount of students from one country. So maybe UCL was just full concerning you home country.

Thanks for everyone's advice! Called UCL and it was because my second year grades weren't up to scratch, which is irritating (i'm doing a 4 year degree), and i'm predicted a high 2:1 or a first . So i'm really doubtful now that i'll get in, but hopefully LSE will look at it more holistically!

I got a conditional offer from LSE this morning, only problem is that it based on my second and fourth year results and my second year results don't meet the requirement, they know this as they have my transcript, is it an error them sending me the offer? Should I contact them and ask them, or stay quiet about it and see how my fourth year results come back? Anyone else in a similar position?
