    Mine arrived around the 17th January I think.

    I have minimal work experience, just a bit of time spent at Tradition, which is an inter dealer broker.

    My guess would be that SSE likes the GMAT.

    I hope my 720 will suit them. Did you get an offer through universityadmission.se or directly from SSE?

    Thanks! my documents arrived pretty late, on January 27, so I'm assuming they weren't yet scanned in the system.
    Hopefully I'll get an offer soon
    Btw, are you from UK?

    I just heard from decisions in the finance department. Someone has some news from the Economic department?

    I also have received an early offer for Finance - but will turn it down as it was one of my safety choices and I also have offers from MIT, LSE and Cambridge..

    I still do think that the SSE is a great school and going there is a good choice!!

    Hi, What are you studying at Birmingham? Asking because I am at Birmingham as well.
    What GMAT/GRE score do you have and what are you planning on studying?

    Ah such a small world! I am studying economics, you?

    I scored 720 on the GMAT and have accepted my place on the Master in Finance course at SSE. I'm still waiting to hear back from HEC Paris and RSM so I may change my mind, but I doubt it as I really like everything I have seen about SSE.

    What score do you have and what are you planning to study?

    Congratulations on your offer, I am still waiting to hear back. I scored 680 and have applied to Msc Finance and General Management. Currently studying the joint degree in Engineering and Management.

    I am guessing from your name that you have lived in Sweden? What is Sweden, and Stockholm in particular, like to live in?

    Good luck with your application.

    I am Swedish, just living and studying in the UK at the minute and will be moving back this summer after I graduate. I guess I am a bit biased being Swedish, so I really like Sweden and Stockholm. If you want then we can meet some time in the near future and discuss this.

    As somebody who is definitely not Swedish I must add, that Sweden is indeed a wonderful place to live and study, and Stockholm is a jewel of Sweden
    I spent a lot of time in Stockholm, - it is clean, had wonderful public transportation (probably the best in the World), very beautiful and convenient. The weather is, perhaps, not ideal, but not all that bad, either. I would choose Sweden any day if it made any sense to me ( as international I would have to pay the full price for the course and it just makes more sense to apply to UK schools).

    Thank you for your input. From what I have read and heard about Sweden and Stockholm it sounds like a wonderful place to live and I'm really looking forward to getting there.

    The only things that I am slightly wary of are the high cost of living and the long winter nights but I guess you get used to it.
