    Hey guys! I applied for L101 - straight economics on the 13th October. I received the following email on the 15th:

    ' are very pleased that you have applied to study BSc in Economics at LSE.

    This email is confirmation of receipt of your application. Decisions are made on a rolling basis, and we will aim to make a decision on your application within 12 weeks and no later than 31 March 2015 (whichever is earlier). We will be emailing you every few weeks to update you on the progress of your application.' Blah blah blah

    However, my email clearly states TWELVE weeks. After reading the thread most applicants state that their acknowledgement email stated TWO weeks - should I be worried???????

    I haven't got it yet, it will be two weeks next Wednesday. But they might reply a little later knowing LSE. I just hope its not an outright rejection The questionnaire just asks for your UMS scores in each of your modules and may ask why you haven't done further maths if you are applying for a maths based course I don't think they will send the questionnaires over the weekend as the admissions department closes You're welcome!

    I haven't got anything since I sent my UMS off to them on the online form. Did you get that email after you did this? And is this for L101?

    Ok fair enough. I'll just have to wait. Bit concerned over the maths - i will only have AS FM. Also the PS seems to be a key part of the selection and is one of the main reasons for rejection so unsure how they will see mine.

    Yours is the acknowledgement email. You should get one after this, which will say two. You're good, don't worry.
