    Two weeks ago I applied for Msc in Management Science (Opeerational Research), still waiting for my second referee to submit his reference letter.

    Pretty nervous already....even though I know that I still have to wait for several weeks/months!

    Good luck to everyone!
    I have applied for the same course. did you apply anywhere else? I applied before two weeks as well.

    Where and what do you study at the moment?

    That is great! I have not applied to any other university yet. However, I am considering Imperial, Cass and Cambridge.

    Currently, I am about to finish my Ph.D. in Computer Science from one of the top universities in Slovakia. In 2010 I have attended LSE Summer School. One of the courses was oriented in Decision Science; through it I got to know about Operational Research.

    After finishing this degree I would like to move to consultancy; therefore, I consider it as a good match with my background. Moreover, I like it better than MBA which is more or less about general management.

    What about you?

    I think they update trackers on Fridays, so we might hear from them tomorrow...
    everyday I check this forum, and everyday I check my tracker. Also, I almost had a heart attack last week when I received a random information email from LSE. Psycho me? :eek:I am sure we are all the same. I really hope that some of us will have an answer before Xmas

    Actually, I think they are very fast at the rejecting. I applied for my programme last year and got rejected in a week. So I retook my GMAT and applied again this year. 4 weeks so far and still under consideration.

    ask to review again your application form. is that possible?
    what about your references? or your personal st? are they good?

    Your GMAT could be the reason, it is on the lower side and I know that they prefer like a 700 at least.

    My references (all three of them) were more than good as far as i can tell. As for my personal statement i think it was a decent one.
    I have a second choice (Management and Human Resources) but i am not optimistic for that as well. Given that (according to their website) in both programs the total number of applications last year was 712 and in Management and Strategy they offered 70+ places and in Management and H.R. just 40... i think i don't stand a chance.

    Before i apply that was my initial thought. Of course i knew people that got into that program with a gmat of 570+ so i thought i should try at least.

    Best of luck to everyone!!!
