    I've got offers for straight maths from Warwick and Durham, and still waiting to hear from Imperial. Fully expecting a post-interview rejection from Oxford (Merton)...

    How about you?
    Wow! Yeah you definitely don't need to care too much about LSE lol I have straight Maths offers from UCL, Bath and Imperial (I'm sure your offer will come through soon). Haha yeah Jan the 8th for me as well, not expecting anything from Oxford though!

    Wow - well done on all of your offers! I'm not expecting much from Imperial to be honest, as I really messed up the MAT... But fingers crossed Aww - I'm sure you did brilliantly. What college did you apply for?

    I received an offer from LSE for Law yesterday. I find it quite strange that I didn't even receive the 'amongst the strongest applicants' email. The final email they sent me prior to my offer stated:

    'I am happy to tell you that your application is strong enough to be considered further by the Admissions Selector for the LLB in Laws programme.'

    Regardless, I am so happy to have received an offer. Good luck to all others waiting with bated breath.
    I got an offer for Law too yesterday but I also didn't get the 'strongest applicant' email!

    Is there anyone that has received a rejection from LSE but has not received this bs excuse- 'Whilst your personal statement is good, there were stronger personal statements received from other similar applicants for your programme.'

    I think they operate a set of stock responses (e.g. one for GCSEs, one for PS, one for A-Levels/IBs/APs). Since the majority of applicants have excellent grades, they'll probably end up using the PS one much more often than the others.

    Received a rejection for LLB in Laws yesterday. A sad end to my LSE journey, received the 2 week email, the 5 week email and the 'your application is amongst the strongest' email prior to this. Apparently, my achievements were 'impressive' but my subject combination lost out to other applicants'. SIGH

    Congratulations to those who got accepted!

    To those who got rejected--don't worry about it! There are plenty of other opportunities out there.

    I received the "strongest" email about a week ago and I haven't heard anything!

    As funny as it may seem, I took Bio, Chemistry, Physics and Maths. Although there's no prerequisite subject for Law, I probably lost out to those who have/had History or Economics.

    I think they want proof of our A2 grades when we achieve them. Although it's best if someone gives a second opinion on this.

    I asked them and they said I didn't need to send any qualification proof in.

    How do you know? Have you heard of any people rejected who were told it was because of their GCSEs? At this stage, those rejected were told that it is because of their pers. statement.

    I think I saw in last year's forums that the Admissions Tutors have a few lines of generic feedback for applicants (aka GCSEs not up to par, PS not 'compelling' enough, AS grades insufficient), and I figured the rejection email would have a paragraph for each one. You're right, though- at this stage the PS is probably decisive.
