    Wow, that's a tough decision to make! Good luck with the Graduate Institute in Geneva and let me know if you do decide to accept the LSE offer so I can look out for you later this year!
    Great I definitely will message you if I accept the offer it will great to know at least one person in the program already!

    Finally I got the email! Unconditional offer in Development Management and they actually are giving me money! I'm so happy and relieved!
    Congratulations!


    I am an applicant to the MSc Development Studies, and have selected MSc Humanitarian Emergencies and International Development as my backup. Right now my application status is "Under review by department" I am hoping to hear something by Mid March.

    I am also filling out a financial aid application in order to hopefully get some help paying the overseas tuition ( if I am accepted of course). Did your letter of acceptance come with something stating they were giving you some money, or did that come later? I ask because I have been accepted to UCL, Kings, and hopefully LSE. Part of my determining where to firm will be the amount of aid given me.

    Any advice you can provide would be appreciated. Congratulations again

    Thank you!!

    I am also an overseas student and did not expect to get anything for that reason, but I was quite happy to find out we are also considered for financial help. They gave me an offer and on it was how much they are granting me. If you submit the financial aid application before a decision comes back, then you will finid out both at once.

    Like others have posted on this thread it is around 10 working days after my 2nd choice status changed from 'under consideration' that I could tell a decision was coming in any day now.

    Good luck to you!

    Anyesh, sorry I have no idea how long other departments might take to come back with a decision. Good luck!

    Sorry to hear that If your second choice is in the same department you should hear from them soon, maybe with an offer I read on this thread that many that had both their choices in the same department got an offer for their 2nd choice soon after, if not both choices had been rejected at once. I think they probably give you an offer for your second choice

    If your 2nd choice is in another department you may be in for another long wait

    It's the same department I think, since I've applied to Theory and History of IR and History of IR, so it's IR department
    Thanks for information and reassurance! Really feeling kind of down now and scared I might not get second choice :/

    I think you may have a good chance to get accepted to your 2nd choice, from what I see there are 77 places compared to 23 for your first choice.

    You received your 4th email earlier than me and I have heard back for the same program. I say maybe do try to get in touch with them at this point. Has the status of your second choice changed?

    Did you apply for financial aid as well? It seems that those responses may take a little longer to come out, maybe because they are also trying to work out how much money to give give you.

    no i haven't applied for financial aid. i might give them a call if i haven't heard from them by the end of this week. thanks for your help though if i don't get in then i'll probably be going to kings for public policy.

    Yes i think i will get in touch with them if they don't reply by the end of this week...because it's nearly been 3 months since the 4th email. oh and i didn't apply for a second choice. Now i'm thinking that was a bad decision since i should have had a back-up option lol!. btw did you say you also got an offer from kings btw? if i don't get into lse then ill be going to kings i think

    I have offers from UCL and SOAS I did not apply to King's. 3 months seems like a really long time but try to stay positive, if they meant to reject you you would have heard back by now
