    Thanks - truly. It's so easy to get caught up with labels, but it's worth it to learn how to shrug them off.

    Hi Hannah
    Is it economics or law you want to do? My son got an offer for law at LSE. Rejected from St Peter's, Oxford. Sometimes it's just a case of selecting a set amount of people from different types of schools, background and areas.

    Thank you for this (whoever and wherever you may be), I totally agree with and relate to what you said.

    I've just applied to LSE for International Relations programme.
    Did anyone already get their offers for IR?
    Obviously I don't expect anything already but just want to know about others
    Applied at the end of September and am still waiting... has anyone else heard?

    Yeah I got it on the 19th, I believe. It was the 9th week of my 8 weeks. Getting impatient over here.

    I got mine on the 12th, and during Christmas they asked for an addition of 2 weeks to the 4 weeks (to accommodate for the holiday break) in order to determine the final decision of my application. Same here, to be honest, I've been fretting for a while now. Hopefully the wait will be worth it.

    You're right - got mine on the 12th! It's crazy to think they're taking longer than Oxbridge... Best of luck! Let's hope it's worth it.

    Just straightforward IR. I've heard back from 2 of my other choices but not the other 2... what about you?

    Fellow law applicant here, waiting patiently for LSE's decision too. Goodness, how they're dragging the wait on and on.

    Wish you the best of luck with your other choices!

    Hi Cholesta,
    I'm a straight law applicant. A big congratulations to your son! I can only hope I receive as wonderful news as he has following my long wait.

    I agree and am sure that played some part in our rejections from Oxford. Bummer we can't do much about it, but I suppose better things await us elsewhere. Good luck to your son with any other decisions he's waiting for!

    Hope you won't have to wait too long. My son's going to email Ox for feedback. He got on really well in first interview and the 2nd one was terrible. He felt the tutor didn't like him the minute he walked through the door. Would you think of reapplying?
