    Got my rejection today after waiting for god knows how long. I applied in October for the Law course.
    IB Predic: 43 with 7-7-6 HL (Hist, English Lit, Mus) 7-7-6 SL (Math, Physics, Greek)
    IGCSE grades 7A* 3A
    I sense some racism going on.

    Has anyone here seen the accommodation?
    if so, what halls do you think would be the best to live in
    I really want Bankside. It is pretty new and I'd get to walk past St Pauls and over Millennium Bridge every morning which just sounds so good. I'm not bothered about being really close to the school like some people. I get up early enough as it is now, so I don't need to worry about that. I still haven't seen acc. in the flesh. I'll get to see it on the Offer Holders' Day!

    How about you?

    None. I suppose its the fact that my surname is Greek... seriously though. I have talked with many people who have said they feel they experienced a sort of racism from admissions. I also had work experience done and had gone to a law summer course. Ontop of that I have piano grade 8 given 2 years ago with my IGCSES, ballet exam diplomas (all with merits piano and ballet) and a really heavy extracurricular schedule.

    hmm, I don't know about the racism thing as LSE takes pride in being such a diverse university. But you seem to have a really great application, so don't let this rejection affect you too much, I'm sure you'll get all your other offers!

    Lol most international yes... it takes international students many of them. Check the European students and especially Greeks, you are in for a surprise...
    Either someone in the Law department is precisely racist towards Greeks or something in your app wasn't up to the standard required. Apply Ockham's Razor...

    I don't want to come across harshly but denial isn't wise.

    no, the 2 week email is something they sent everyone as the school closed for christmas, so they are telling you that they should have a decision about your application made 10 weeks after you applied and basically if they don't have one by then they'll send you an additional four week email.

    Not uncommon for successful Oxbridge candidates not getting LSE offers too. Perhaps they have different selection criteria preferences.
