My full application was sent to LSE on 3/dec/2010. I've not heard anything yet. Any idea why?
KCL and QMUL have already offered me a place.


LSE website states that it might take a maximum of 8 weeks prior to receiving a response regarding your application.
I reckon it might take longer, considering the holidays break.

You should hear soon about them ! Don't worry :)

@leeco: so u plannin to accept the offer?? or you waiting for some other unis as well...


Don't know yet... I am waiting for KCL and UCL, but I heard QMUL is better in the Intellectual property field of law.

The thing is, I am not for the UK and where I come from, law firms don't know the difference between one college to another as long as it's the University of London.

I have until February 2 to accept an offer from Kings, but I am still waiting for LSE, does anyone know what happens if I accept it and then reject it? They do not require a deposit.

I think it's no problem to accept it. I also accept it, but I am still waiting for UCL.

I finally received a conditional offer from LSE today. I've completed my application on 16 November and have been checking the tracker almost every day since mid December. Can't understand why some people have received earlier notifications despite having submitted their applications at a later date.

Anyway, my offer was conditional upon getting a 2:1 degree. I'm very happy about this since it's almost equivalent to an unconditional offer : )

And I do have some questions I wish to ask Good Gosh - I hope you won't mind!

I read your posts on this board and understand that you've been studying in both Cambridge and LSE. What do you think of the LSE Law Department? I wish to do either (i) human rights law; or (ii) traditional subjects such as conflicts of law, restitution and/or insolvency law. How would you rate LSE in relation to the above-mentioned areas of law?

I'm sorry for the overly-broad questions I've asked. I very much appreciate your thoughts on this!

Does LSE only require a 2:1? Or are you from a top tier University so that they only require you have a 2:1?

i can't comment as to conflicts of law/restitution/insolvency, but i am taking HR classes and i LOVE the courses i am taking. i have to say that the LSE has the best/widest provision of HR classes, especially compared to oxbridge. it really is fantastic, and the diverse student body is definitely a huge addition.

as for cambridge vs lse. for the llm i would - for HR law at least - go for lse. i think the big advantage to cambridge as an undergraduate is the supervision system, which you don't get as an llm. lse is mainly taught in a seminar system which is much more interactive than the cambridge lecture system (though cambridge llms do get some occasional seminars). that said, if you've never experienced oxbridge go there if you really fancy wearing a gown and eating at high table. either way, you can't go wrong.

congrats again!

I don't get why it should be any different if I wasn't coming from another EU state or even an international location... Anyway! I wish everything will be ready by next week!

Thank you for your kind reply! What about the the doctorate programme in LSE - is it difficult for a LLM student to secure a place with a supervisor for the PhD? Also when does a student normally apply for the PhD? Some time ago a lecturer from Cambridge came to my school as a guest lecturer and he subsequently held an informal session with us talking about postgraduate admissions. I was told that the normal route would be that LLM students apply in September the year they commence their LLM studies indicating on the form that they will be "expected first class honours holders". Does the same apply to LSE?

Thanks again!

Re Glau912, I'm not sure what conditions are set for others. I think it depends on the grading system of your university and also the strength of your application aside from your academic credentials. I come from Hong Kong and whilst our law faculty is considered the best in the region, after all it is nothing but a regional school. I don't think the conditions set have anything to do with the reputation of my university.

Good luck with your application!
