LSE Personal Statement Advice Needed


NAZ

Greetings All,

I would really appreciate your help/advice on what to write in my LSE personal statement. I am in my final year of studies, an overseas applicant studying law in Scotland.
Also, does anyone know what a conditional offer from LSE will ask for.. will they ask for a 2:1 or a 1st!
My 3rd year results were 70,70,70,66,65,64!! First and second year results are not that good --- I welcome any comments on my chances with these results!!

Any comments will help!!
Thanks in advance!

The most important thing about your PS is demonstrating why you want to do the course. You must have a very specific focus and show how the program will help you reach your goals. You should also place emphasis on demonstrating why LSE is the best program for you and why you are capable of succeeding.

By the way, with those results you shouldn't have too much of a problem. Be honest in explaining why your earlier results were not so good and why you improved over time.

I agree with jasonjb. You must make sure you explain why you (as opposed to the other hundreds of applicants' personal statements the admissions tutors will read) want to study at LSE. Two things about the LL.M. programme at LSE: First, LSE follows an interdisciplinary approach in many courses. Second, it is overwhelmingly diverse, especially on the LL.M. There are any number of other relevant factors which may relate to your specific application better, and the two I have given as examples may not be important for you or effective arguments in support of your application, but jasonjb has it right that you should be explaining why it makes sense for you to attend their programme. It's just one opinion. Good luck!
