    Same here my friend! Economic history department is such a small department... The worse part, however, is that I haven't got any offer from any universities I applied so far...
    Sorry cuz i know this is horribly off the topic, but uve wrongly added up ur SAT Reasoning Test score in ur signature. Adds up to 2180 while uve written 2170.

    that is a great score so congrats too btw:cool:

    cheers

    A letter was sent off Monday the 24th but I didn't get it until Thursday 27th .. cuz Im living in Germany. I emailed the admissions tutor to give feedback on my application on thursday and got an answer on friday morning.
    However, he didn't say whether it was my score or my essay. So i'll never know .......... i guess ill try again next year ... it won't hurt!

    about warwick: I got my offer pretty early. November 6th. I was surprised, too.
    Well, what's your predicted grade for the Abitur, is it 1.3 or better? That might help evaluate your chances of getting in.

    what? is it possible to apply LSE with AP only?
    No offense at all, but I thought every applicant must submit both AP and SAT 1 score.
    I mean AP alone is way easier than IB and A-level.
    Yes it is possible, and only because I am a Canadian applicant not American. It's even possible to apply with only courses from our respective provinces (if AP/IB is not accessible to you) but I've never heard of anyone getting in with only those qualifications.

    I have no clue about IB/A-level difficulty, but there are certainly harder AP courses and easier ones (LSE has a list of acceptable ones). That being said, LSE gave me an offer for 5555 for my upcoming exams (I've already taken 4 AP courses on top of that), so I don't know! Could've been my PS or reference letters (reason for offering me a place)?

    did anyone who has already got qualification, and is international, get asked to send a transcript of the academic record in university?
    is that good or bad?
    by the way, I´m Isabela, from Brazil, applying for Law...

    I think it's a good sign to be honest.
    I know some people have basically gotten Conditional Offers where the condition is to send in all transcripts etc.

    Did you get this by email or by UCAS?

    Hi Isabela btw .

    I got this by e-mail...no conditional offer on UCAS
    I´ll have a few crazy days trying to fight brazilian bureaucracy to get my transcript until Monday (when I´m off to Europe for vacations)
    i just hope this is a good thing. At least I presume I won´t be rejected on Friday, which was my biggest worry...

    What course are you applying for?
    Your offers won't get any easier either, if you get one from Camb, it will be the same as your LSE offer...

    Oh, right. Still sounds like they are interested in you .

    Are your grades currently in portugese or in english?
    If you need to translate them, ask if your school can do it on a official paper and then stamp + sign it. Otherwise, just ask them to print your grades and do the same. You have all your grades ready right?

    Can I just say that the email people are getting from the LSE is not a shortlist email. A shortlist implies that only those who made it on to the shortlist will get offers whilst those that didn't will get rejected straight away. Since this is clearly not the case as people get offers without receiving the email, the email does not signify that you have been put on a shortlist.

    The LSE receive an extraordinary number of applications and hence it would be very hard for them to make decisions all at once. It is probably for that reason that they take a number of applications aside and make their final decision at a different time i.e after the Jan 15 deadline and after they have received all applications. The criteria for putting people on this 'deferred list' is anyone's guess. It could be anything; for all we know it might even be random. Therefore could people stop referring to this email as a shortlist email because it clearly isn't. It might be beneficial or disadvantageous. Maybe after this year we'll be able to analyse what percentage of people who got this email actually received offers and then come up with a conclusion.

    i know someone who was predicted 44/45 in IB... she got rejected by ucl as well... i have no idea why!?
    clearly ucl is biased against oxbridge students...
    yeah... i hope the rule doesn't apply this year... i really want to get an offer this week... at least before my cams interview... that will really take the pressure off me...
