    When you have so many people with similar grades how do you differentiate between them? Introducing a separate test is one way, like in the case of Oxbridge where they screen off at least a third before they interview. Not having all that, the only way left is to 'interview' through a 'deep evaluation' into applicants' PS. One can argue that the PS favours those who are very good at communicating their motivations and passion .... and disadvantages those who are less able. Then again, the same can be said of the interview process. Tough ... getting into LSE is seriously competitive .... and the result is ..... LSE turns out graduates who are seriously competitive too. Congratulations to those who get offers. But, to the rest, don't feel bad either, because you may end up having more fun than them

    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?
    I got my offer a week after my 8 weeks were offer.

    Maybe once it gets to two weeks. I'd be weary of slowing the process down by giving them more to deal with.

    That's so weird, I never got a 4 week email. I applied October 10 and got a 2 week and an 8 week email, but got an offer a week into the 8 weeks on November 13. Must be down to departments
