    Who else is applying for Government?? :P As far as I'm aware, not many offers have been given out for that yet.. Am dead nervous, as grades are legit the worst out of anyone applying to lse this year XD I had severe extenuating circumstances though...but don't know, would lse really take that into account?? :confused:
    hey, I'm also applying for Government, I created this thread: " http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2533961 " which would be cool to keep alive. Post on there so we don't have to keep trawling through this thread and talk some serious government! haha

    I think the general consensus is that LSE go much more on the PS rather than grades and I would expect that they'd take any extenuating circumstances into account. Also given that it seems a lot of good candidates have been rejected recently it's a good sign you're still in the running

    when i got my offer it didn't really please me as much to be honest. I was in Oxford for the interview, I woke up then checked the time on my phone and I saw the email from LSE. My immediate reaction was something like so what its just a university. I have been glamourising it too much. I want Oxford now. So immediately I craved for more.
    Before getting the offer I was so desperate for it and I was checking email all the times and first thing in the morning but once you got it you treat it as a 'meh'. I guess it's just human nature.

    I think I'm the opposite. I received an offer from the LSE a few days after my Oxford interviews, and felt extremely chuffed(and still am!). Then again it's perhaps because I think my first interview at Oxford didn't go very well, so it's a relief to know that I have a place at the LSE, and put aside the reputation of Oxford, I'd much prefer to live in London than in Oxford. Btw what did you apply for at the LSE?

    There's a lot of talk that spending too much time on your PS is bad but I spent about 3 hours a day for the majority of a month. It payed off as I got an offer. So it really depends on the individual. If you struggle to express yourself then spend time on it.

    Thank you! Wow, so you have an offer from Durham as well, well done! Sounds like a hard decision to make. For me, LSE is likely to be my firm should I get rejected from Oxford. Just out of interest, are you a home or international student, fee-status wise? I read that you are from Iran, but live in England?

    Me too, I spent about a month and half on my PS, got an offer!

    I am an international student. But that doesn't necessarily make it easier to get accepted to LSE.

    Oh no, that wasn't what I was implying, I'm an international student, too. I asked purely out of interest, and also thought that it's quite cool to meet someone from Iran :/ (as I've never met one before)
