    LSE sent me an email two weeks ago saying they would contact me in two weeks, but I never heard back from them. Does anyone know if this is normal? I'm freaking out right now and refreshing my email 24/7

    Same!! My 2 weeks ended 19/1. Don't know if its normal, good, or bad but it freaks me out too! What I got from others is that they don't really stick to those emails and we shouldn't worry but its hard to do so

    Two weeks is nothing for a wait from LSE. I was sent the 2 week email, then I had another 2 week email to cover the Christmas closure period and then I had the 8 week email - I am about 3 weeks into that 8. However there are plenty of people who applied much earlier than I did and they haven't had a reply yet either. I think that LSE has to consider anything from 6 to 15 (and maybe more) applications per place on each course. For example the BSc in Actuarial Science (2013) had almost 600 applicants for just 85 places so you can see how difficult that would be to reduce down.
    No news is good news (maybe, sometimes, hopefully).

    Well I wouldn't mind if they said they would reply in 8 weeks and acctually did but knowing that they have past their date is worse!

    Exactly, now they got me super worried, especially since I'm an international applicant unfamiliar with UCAS.
    It's like LSE has conspired to force us into this perpetual state of paranoia and apprehension.

    mine ends this Friday, I think its better to have a delay past your 4 weeks as it seems like they're only handing out rejections during it but it's anyones guess I suppose
