    Yea i know, seriously dont know why they take so long. Imperial took 10 days to get back to me, and LSE took 3 weeks. Cambridge is taking forever.........
    I suspect that they are waiting until applications close on April 30, and then will look at everyone who applied and make decisions.

    Anyone heard back? This wait is taking forever gee . I've been looking at former student profiles on linkedin and everyone had such a solid profile between applying for the course. Competition is pretty intimidating...

    First of all, congrats Omega! I read somewhere in this discussion that the later the better or in other words that firstly they reject those they don't want (or make an exceptional offer to ppl with a CV like Donald Trump) and then they start make offers. Has anyone been already rejected?

    It is true that they reject people they clearly do not want right away, but I am not sure how it means that "the later the better". If they clearly do not want you they will reject you whether you apply early or late. Otherwise your chances are the same, since they will pool everyone together and decide who to make an offer to, and at that point it would not matter whether you applied early or late.

    So, it really is not "the later the better" but more like "makes no difference whatsoever".

    Indeed. If you weren't given an offer right away, it means you don't stand out enough. So, the later it is, the less chance you actually will have until the application deadline as until then there's always the possibility that better people will apply. However since that date has been reached, to my understanding, it's all up to fate right now and I suppose that all offers and rejections will be sent out at the same time (give or take).

    It must suck though, the suspense must be killing for those who applied

    Sorry for the late reply, I am happy to share my profile. I have an economics degree from a top OS university (With some prior course work in real estate and development) and am now completing a Masters in Finance. My grades are very good but not great but I believe my references and personal statement most likely got me over the top. Good luck to everyone waiting.

    I'd be curious to know the conditions of your offer. Do they require a deposit?

    Thanks.

    That's ridiculous. I've accepted my offer from LSE. I'm moving from the states. I can't just sit around waiting for a decision. I have to make plans and get everything sorted out.
