    I suspect those who have not received emails will find out by the end of next week.

    Out of interest, if we have received an email saying you will be considered for offer after January 15th then surely we are just competing amongst other people with emails and those who apply quite late on. However, most people will have already applied to LSE (at least for economics... where the majority of applicants are also Oxbridge applicants) and not many people have got the email (judging from this thread)... so really the competition after January 15th is minimal. Or am I being too optimistic? Of course, this relies on the fact that those people who do not receive emails, receive decisions by the 15th.

    If the previous year is anything to go by, then a good number of Oxbridge applicants who did not get the email from LSE will go on to receive their decisions after Christmas.

    I haven't looked at last year's thread, may as well just relax and wait for LSE. I don't want to go to London now anyway, so I don't know why I am getting stressed.

    Bit off topic, but who is your favourite economist?

    Favourite economist? That is a very difficult question, since there are so many to choose from. If I had to narrow it down, then it would be Mill, von Neumann, Friedman, Arrow or Sen.

    I agree with von Neumann, Friedman and Arrow... not so sure about Mill or Sen.

    Personally I would choose, John Law, Schelling or Tversky.

    Does it hurt if you have not applied yet but will apply before Jan 15th?

    I've noticed that a number of people posting on this forum (not sure if this sample sizes represents the broader picture) have either been told to wait until Jan 15th, at which point they are being compared against existing entries and those that come in December (i.e. mine), or they have been rejected (not counting a few acceptances already).

    Took about a week for me to both get the UCAS welcome letter and the acknowledgement from LSE, so I guess it will be around the same for you.

    No, you are not . They do give equal consideration to everyone applying before and at 15 January.

    That would be nice if that was the case, but I'm not applying for economics (history and international relations) so I think its a wild guess at best.

    Just a recap, I reckon the e-mail that people got today is basically a shortlist e-mail, which means they might want to give you an offer, but want to wait until all the applicants are in. It also means though, that you're not the best of the bunch, i.e. they're not going to make you an offer before then in the first set of offers.

    You haven't been shortlisted. That was just a ****-up on their behalf.

    So according to TSR speculation, is that a pending rejection?

    This TSR speculation has risen from my suggestion that if you're an early applicant (as in before 15th Oct), and you haven't got a shortlist e-mail, you should expect a decision this side of christmas.

    It makes sense to me, but, in theory, they could still shortlist you.

    Also, it's just what I suggested, so by no means is it concrete, which some people are making it out to be, which is really annoying.

    I'm applying for History at LSE (which is now where i'm really hoping to go since Oxford rejected my ass) and I haven't received any short list e-mail or anything so needless to say I am bricking it. No-one has stated that they've received a short list e-mail for straight History yet though, have they? Come on guys I need encouragement here.. lol
