    I'm in the U.S., so it's too far for me to go to the offer holders day. Wish I could!

    What makes a personal statement LSE quality? And would they take people with a better ps over people with higher grades? Eg 95ums+
    Basically showing that your head over heels for your subject.

    I had two friends last year who applied with me, one had virtually straight A*s GCSE, perfect predictions, 97% avg but didn't get in. Rejection letter said "while PS was good, it wasn't as good as that of other applicants." The other had 4A*s GCSE, lower predictions and sub-90 UMS and he got in (but in March). Make of that what you will.

    Just been reading over a few pages of this thread and I've noticed that people who are getting rejected are getting rejected at the end of the 8 (8+2) week period and those who are receiving the 4 week email are receiving it after 7 weeks of the 8(8+2) email. My 8 weeks is up next week so I'm trying to work out if the above is true, that if I don't receive a 4 week email tomorrow then theres a much higher chance of me getting rejected next week. Am I seeing things or have others noticed that too?

    My 8 weeks for maths and econ ended last week and I still haven't heard anything, so you're not the only one! I think we might get a 4 week email tomorrow.

    Hmmmm, my personal statement is coherent and concise, but worried I don't develop all my points. I guess I'm gonna wait to find out but seems like the LSE personal statement could be the same BS stumbling block as Oxbridge interviews
