Best of luck to everyone still waiting and to those with offers: congratulations!

Hello!

Congratulations to all who received offers! For those trying to figure out the timing for a decision, please note that some people are receiving offesr within 4 weeks of the 4th e-mail, and others have received within 6 weeks. It seems that they take into consideration your specialism (I guess) - the more candidates, the longer your decision will take to be released.

I have been admitted to the Taxation specialism, exactly 4 weeks of my 4th e-mail.

Btw, anyone else to the Tax Course?

Oh do we actually have to apply to specific specialisms? I put my specialism down in the form but I didn't know that they already assign you to specialisms.

I do not think they are currently taking specialisms into account. From my point of view they are lining the candidates up. The one's who have recently received an offer are their first choice. At this time they also rejected the candidates LSE they did not want for sure. All remaining candidates now have to wait till they can estimate the amount of applications LSE will receive this year and especially the quality of these candidates.

The timing of the 4th email does not matter for us, the remaining candidates (mine is from the 6th of November).

I hope this will help those who are impatiently waiting;)

Just received my LSE LLM acceptance via email. Checked my graduate tracker this morning at 8 but there was nothing there, the email came at 11:30 AM. It's a conditional offer, but one that I know I'll be able to meet with relative ease.

Since everybody asks this:

Application Submitted on 28/11/12
4th Email on 04/12/12
Conditional Acceptance on 30/01/13

SO HAPPY!!! YAY!!!

I received the conditional offer on the 20th of December, received the forth email on the 7th of November.


I am looking to see you guys on the upcoming October. Are there anyone interested in Criminal Justice or Human Rights which I wish to specialize? If anyone would like to study in those streams, please allow me to know.

I believe that looking my background is very supportive to those wish to study at LSE but do not received a very good grade on their first degree.

I am from Thailand, graduated from one of the top law school of my country with second class honours (76.61/100) which was about first 10% of my class. I have been told that to be one of the LLMer at the LSE I have to be at least first 5% of the class, which I just proved that it is not true. I think it because I did something else and my recommendations and sop are very strong.

I earned LLM and just received LLD from the same university (I finished my LLD dissertation after received the offer from the LSE). I am a Barrister-at-Law of Thailand and work as a lecturer at a state university. Moreover, I did some research concerning human rights and criminal justice.

All I need to say is if you did something wrong when you were young, you can fixed it and you can get what you want.

Very interesting post maew. I have applied to LSE but I am yet to hear a response. If accepted I hope to specialise in criminal justice/human rights also. I have also applied to Oxbridge so I am awaiting responses from them too.

I am also top 10% so interesting to hear your experience.

For those who have already obtained offers, could you give us some indication of your academic grades? Just wondering what it takes to be admitted into LSE. And congratulations!=)


Sure.

I actually studied my Undergraduate LLB degree at the LSE, I'm in my final-year now. I have a partial scholarship with them for the LLB.

I scraped a 1st class in my second-year (70%) and received the highest score in Information Technology Law. I'm aiming for an overall first-class in my LLB by acing my third-year exams.

I've done 4 official vacation schemes at some top law firms (Clifford Chance, Slaughter & May, DLA Piper and Clyde & Co.) I've done many mini-pupillages at Chambers (most notably: Brick Court, Blackstone, Maitland and Monckton). I worked part-time with a voluntary organisation named Privacy International last year and am working part-time with the Media League Defence Initiative this year.

I've done lots of charity work while at the LSE, from working with Teach India over summer, to LSE-sponsored schemes like YELP and Widening Participation to work with London schoolchildren from disadvantaged backgrounds. I'm also going to Uganda this summer to work with the African Prisons Project on death row cases and have also accepted an invitation to work as a Course Assistant on the LSE Summer School Programme.

I've been an active member of the LSE student life: Mooting Officer, Events Officer for the India Society, and Editor of our Law Review (The Obiter).

I moot extensively, since my first-year, I've participated in 7 mooting competitions and won 4 so far, including the Jessup International Law Moot where I was part of the LSE team that won Nationals last year and ranked in the top 10 internationally. This year, I've been part of the Essex moot (we're in the 2nd round now) and have qualified for the Oxford International IP Law moot (in March).

I also work as a Research Assistant to one of the LSE Professors and have a very close relationship with my dissertation supervisor (Prof. Chaloka Beyani) who is a juggernaut of international human rights law and my academic advisor (Prof. Conor Gearty), who is one of the country's leading human rights barristers (both of whom supplied references for me).

Oh! And I had a case comment recently published in the Journal of IP Law (my first formal publication!)

I only applied to LSE on Feb 02. I know it is a bit late, but does anyone know how long I will have to wait before hearing from them? Do they send an e-mail informing that the application is complete?
