(Original post by makke)
This year five received their offer on the first offer day (speaking of course only of TSRians), which is exactly the same number as that of last year. I think this implies that the number of decisions are at least to some extent comparable. On the second offer day also five people received offers last year. Thus I share the doubts with amar09 that maybe we shouldn't expect very many offers before christmas for those early applicants without a gathered field e-mail.
yes we can't be THAT optimistic yet

I think a mixed rejection/offer week next week. Rejections on the Monday/Tuesday and offers on the Friday.

I SERIOUSLY doubt that there will be rejections next week.

Doesn't follow the LSE pattern, which, bar the first couple of decisions of this year, LSE have followed for at least 5 years. Of course its possible, but its unlikely.

Grr, I wish I'd managed to gotten my application off earlier than the 4/12 (my referee shares the blame for that one). Since I've applied so late theres pretty much no chance of me hearing back until some point in the new year (short of a quick and very painful rejection before they close for Christmas).

Do individual departments make offers/rejections at different times or do all wait and give decisions at the same time (collectively as a university)? For example Social Policy, Sociology and a the odd other department's applicants haven't heard anything yet, but that might be because they're so few on this thread.

Yeah, i was in a bit of a pissy with my head of sixth form for a while, and he got mine sent on the 20th November :/

At least most of you guys will have a definite answer fairly soon! I'm gonna be sat here for some time I feel...

Ha, you think thats bad, I'm postponing my travel until I've heard back from everywhere (I'm a post A-level applicant).

I've only had access to track for 36 hours and I've been on over a dozen times. Ahhh! Good luck with IR though, not as many TSR applicants as I thought this year!

Yeah, I was surprised by this too! Especially as one of the supposedly most oversubscribed courses, hence i'm not holding out too much hope (plus only 3 A*'s somehow :p: )

Fingers crossed though I guess, LSE do have a history of some fairly strange decisions - maybe still a possibility? :o:

Good luck to you also

Yeah Int'l Relations is pretty hardcore! Thanks for the luck, only 2A* here :p: , admittedly for a far less competitive course (Social Policy with Government).

that's quite impossible unless u want a very bad news because it takes few weeks to process your application and by that time it will be after mid Jan as the LSE office will close from mid DEC - mid JAN

On average it takes less than 3 months - it says on the LSE website that most candidates will receive decisions within 3 months of submitting their application. In my case, they took 7 weeks.

Although before getting their spirits up, people have to bear in mind that the admissions office is closed during the festive period.

Man, this thread is amusing and depressing at the same time. I hope no one here has to wait till March to get a decision or this thread will be a thousand pages long :P (not to mention the fact that a wait that long is just cruel).

Fingers crossed for good news next week .

You won't get a decision until after Jan 15th.

Amar, maybe you should do a bit of explaining of terminology and what's going on in your first post, might save all these questions?
