    Aww man sorry about that bud. Do you mind quoting the actual sentence? A friend got a similar message and she found it really patronizing
    The feedback we have received from the Admissions Selector indicates that your application was unsuccessful because in their opinion your personal statement did not demonstrate as much interest in, or focus on, the BSc in Accounting and Finance programme when compared to the personal statements received from successful applicants.

    Applicants are expected to demonstrate commitment and give valid reasons for their programme choice in the personal statement. Also, academic staff expect to see a well-written personal statement which provides succinct, clear evidence of understanding and preparation for the further study of their subject. Unfortunately they did not find your personal statement sufficiently convincing for you to be offered a place at LSE.

    Bare in mind i did accounting work experience, wrote about the effects on company and global finance after the crash in addition to a summer school i attended. Their loss as far as i am concerned

    End of my 3rd week :/ You can assume you have an offer if you make it past that point i think as they would have already rejected you by that point.

    I've applied for Exeter, Edinburgh, two courses at UCL( one is the dual degree science po) and LSE to study economics.
    I've received an offer from Exeter last friday...
    Three weeks have passed since I got the mail to let me now I was still being considered (8 weeks wait).
    Should I be worried considering for my ES french baccalaureate I've predicted 17/20, and have written a good PS ?
    Have I got any chances of being accepted at LSE?

    If you are still in the run and have not been rejected, you could still get an offer (or not!). None of us can really assess your profile, and even if we tried, LSE is often quite unpredictable. Just sit tight and wait and hope for the best, really... Good luck to you.

    Ahhh un autre francais. I got in to LSE for law yesterday with 16/20 predicted on l'Option Internationale du BAC, so you'll be fine. (our school doesnt predict more than 16) Depends also on what you got on your Epreuves Anticipees (I'm in L and got 19/14/20/19), but if youre completely bilingual and have good work experience/talked about interesting books on your PS, you'll have a good chance.

    (I also applied for Sciences Po regularly btw, alors on se voit a l'oral )
