Hey I'm new and I have a general question -

Anybody know about the new politics and philosophy program? How difficult is it to get into etc? I guess I should have checked this out before I applied :p:
...just in general I'm an international applicant (USA) so do I actually have a chance? And I've noticed quite a few rejections for that course - probably doesn't bode too well for me eh?

Oh and by the way no gathered pile email - I suppose I will PM all this info to amar eventually

However, there is obviously one with an awesomely cruel offer of 43 points. :lolwut: Is this really the usual that they tend to give?!? :eek:
No, that's not the usual case. Typical offer is 38 pts incl. 766 w/ 7 in Maths HL, but there are always exceptions.

Hey guys, I am just wondering if anyone has any experiences what the offers are usually like for someone doing IB and applying for economics L100. I know they say the following in their website: International Baccalaureate: Diploma with 38 points including 7 6 6 at Higher level (with 7 in Mathematics)
However, there is obviously one with an awesomely cruel offer of 43 points. :lolwut: Is this really the usual that they tend to give?!? :eek: Just thinking what do they usually give out, since I am thinking of my firm and insurance choices. (Though admittedly I am rather early and speculating, as I haven't heard anything from them yet. Just would be cool to know where I may be heading next year :cool:)
Well you have just got an LSE offer, which many TSRers would sell their granny for, so don't expect much sympathy.

Are you doing more than 6 IB subjects then?
What do they want at HL?

I know, but if I remember correctly (which I probably don't as I was rejected before this time last year), there were more LSE offers before Christmas. This is, of course, based on TSR! I also seem to remember a massive load of offers around mid January too though?

I know for a fact that the admissions office closes on the 25 of December and opens on the 5th of Jan. (my friend is applying for law and LSE sent her an email about her application asking her to respond before the office closes...)
Well, on the 17th I received an email (have been in Morocco this week so could not check it before!) from the UG admissions department saying that the office will be closed from 5pm on 23 December and will reopen at 9.15 on 5 January.

They wanted me to send them a transcript of my university results (I am studying aeronautical engineerin in spain). Actually I'm quite excited about this email! At least they are taking my application into real consideration! But it's a bit weird... what does my thermodynamics or structures calculus marks got to do with my preparation to study management sciences?

well, thank you!!! lol! I hope they look at the business related subjects and not to the maths units (never got more than 60% in any of them!!! ) or to that half of the units which have been passed in September! lol!
Spanish engineering courses are crazy... how can a 3years + research project degree have an average time in order to finish it of 7years+project?! I wanna go to UK so badly...

To be honest I have no clue man - I'm just speculating! I for one, will be holding my thumbs for your receiving an offer though!
