    Technically true, just misleading. I'd rather be told nothing and receive a decision when they're ready instead of the nerve-wracking, useless (in that they don't actually tell us anything) updates
    Yes, I totally agree with that. I have been on my nerves the whole day today, and still haven't received anything. It's getting very stressful!

    But I'm taking Accounting as my major, I would probably need it more than History though.
    It doesn't work this way. And furthermore, Accounting is a blacklisted subject at A-level.

    math is the big thing for lse. As long as you have math you technically meet their requirements. Other than that they want to see that you have challenged yourself with the courses you take - if you can get an a in fm that is a big plus. Other than that, economics is considered average in terms of difficulty and accounting downright easy. History is a difficult subject that teaches you how to right essays - a skill invaluable when writing personal statements etc.

    if i was you id take math, fm, history and econ. You could even swap out econ for physics. It is.more math based and you get a broad range of science, humanities and.quantitative subjects. Top grades in 3 math based subjects, you will show them that you can handle the difficulty of the the math on the accounting course - which is really the only thing they really care about. History will also show them that you have writing skills to supplement quantitative skill.

    fm, math, history and physics - you'd be golde

    God dammit. Sounds like we'd all better prepare for 4 week emails.

    My 8+2 weeks ended today and I still haven't heard back yet! It really bothers me that they aren't sticking to their schedule of sending out decisions. They should not tell us we will hear back in 8 weeks if this is not the case. I would rather they give me accurate information from the beginning, even if it means that they send us 16 week emails.

    I know your pain. It's been 3 months since I applied for Politics and Philosophy, including the 8 + 2 week emails. Just got the 4 week one today. It's like some sort of irritating scavenger hunt!:confused:
