LSE_Reserve List


FMonaco
I have been just put in a reserve list by LSE (not the waiting list) because the programme has reached its quota, even though the application would have been succesful.
As far you know, is there a realistic possibility to become eligible after mid-August (apparently, should anybody decline the offer, they will make new decisions by August 17th)?
Thank you,
F.

Do you have to do the LLM this year?

Just an idea, but was wondering whether you could talk them into granting you deferred entry for the next academic year, if LSE is really what you want

i would imagine that many who have accepted their lse offers won't actually enroll when the time comes to pay their deposits in august. what the precise number is, and how high up the reserve list, would determine whether or not you are offered a spot for this autumn. that said, you don't lose anything by staying on the list, so i would just say be patient and cross those fingers. good luck...

Thank you both.

@Interalia: I had thought about the same idea, but yes, it would be much better for me to leave this year and moreover I suppose I would have to "bargain" since, officially, you can only postpone an offer, which I do not have. Since it is not a waiting list but a reserve list I understand my application is suitable for an offer but nothing is official.

@GoodGosh: I did not gather information on deposits at LSE, is that necessary when accepting the offer BEFORE enrolling in september? By August, they will receive my Toefl score (111) which might help...

Regarding the importance of LSE: i still do not understand the substantial difference and comparisons between King's and LSE (I have an unconditional from King's for regulation / competition courses).

Are you guys enrolling this year in a LLM?

dunno about the precise details, but basically many people accept their lse offers and ultimately bow out when it comes to paying their fees, freeing up spaces for others on the reserve and waiting lists in august/september.

re: lse vs kings, kings is an excellent law school, but i think the lse's llm programme offers more choice and is more highly regarded. but hey, i'm biased as i only applied to lse for the llm.

If you have the programme at KCL as plan B, you have nothing to lose by waiting till you hear from LSE.I would advise that you continue communicating with KCL as if you are heading there just in case but hold out for LSE.I know how it feels to really want to be somewhere and if you are on the Reserve list that's a good start.Most people will drop out come August for sure, so hang in there and don't tell KCL you won't go just yet.
Good Luck!

FMonaco, have you entered into dialogue with the people at LSE in terms of trying to solidify a place for next year's group? I am in a similar position, in that I have also been placed on the reserve list and I am just trying to gauge people's feelings on this.

I have done a bit of research since being placed on the list and there doesn't seem to be much out there, bar wait and see and cross the fingers - sorry I cannot be of more assistance. What I do understand is that places open up around mid-August (probably due to tuition fees coming due, amongst other factors) and the course co-ordinators allocate places based on preferences, specialisms, etc. I understand there not to be a ranking procedure within the reserve list. In terms of your situation with KCL, I would have to agree with Tabmas08. It cannot hurt to keep KCL at arm's length and hold out to see what the LSE comes back with (unless KCL fees become due before then??).

Keep us posted, happy to share further details if necessary.

Dear Starsky_SEC,

thanks for your reply. KCL fees won't become due by that date - the deadline is sept 22nd or so.
About postponing, it would be inefficient for me to take the llm next year for a lot of reasons, so I would prefer going to King's instead of deferring to next year's group (provided it is possible).

I realise King's would even be better for me to some extent (given that I am going to study competition law, for which LSE does not have a long history nor has a specialism on that) but I also admit that *in general* LSE's reputation is stronger.

Starsky_SEC which specialism did you choose? I had chosen, for LSE, the Media/IT one, which is to some extent close to competition.

Hi guys,

for your information, I was not able to be offered a place for this year - the programme is too full.

What is strange, is that they have taken a decision today (and not after August 17th as declared), just after receiving my TOEFL scores: I wonder if the website provides wrong info about that, saying a 109 is enough (while til last year it was 114), since I got 111.

I am so sorry to hear you didn't get in after all.
It is strange that they did not wait for August as stated.
Not to worry, Kings will be great tooand not many people are lucky to have such a good option.
I wish you all the best.

Sorry to hear that! But Kings is a great place to study and I am sure you will have a great time there. I have not heard back yet from them so waiting until August 17th I guess. Fingers crossed!
