    Only 9% are made offers according to this:

    I didn't ask for the statistics. I know them. I meant the actual record on TSR in this forum. Their statistics say nothing about when people receive offers.

    Sorry I thought you wanted to know how many people will receive offers. Actually, I have seen many people complain about the IR department being so slow in giving out offers/rejection. IR is one of the most competitive courses.

    I just read the discussion about Oxford/LSE and I was quite touched by what people were saying.

    I believe I can understand what the "complaining guy" is saying. He's just trying to express his sense of loss due to his Oxford rejection. He is not arguing that LSE is bad, he's trying to say he fells like he will forever miss the Oxford experience he couldn't have. He's complaining more about "life" than LSE.

    I think I can also understand what all the others are, reasonably, arguing. There is no point in writing in this thread bad thing about LSE. There are people who have been rejected by LSE, and would have loved to get in; there are people who are in, and do deserve to be proud of their accomplishment. They shouldn't be put down.

    That said, I am a Law applicant. I am Italian, studied in Italy and I am currently taking a gap year. I received offers from UCL, KCL, Nottingham, Oxford and I'm still waiting for LSE.

    When I decided to apply to study in England, my heart was set on Oxford. However, when I started getting my offers I began to realize how great universities all the others are. Now that the process is almost over, I think I am still going to firm Oxford. The interesting point is that I am not going to do it because of the ranking, but because of the sheer "Oxford experience". I want to wear a gown, to attend ceremonies held in Latin, to be surrounded by the kind of beauty I have always dreamt of. Although I may be confusing "learning with the smell of cold stone", I think I can understand what the "complaining guy" is saying: had not I got in, I would have felt sorry about the loss of this specific kind of life, even more than about the reduced number of job possibilities - and I'm not even sure about the real situation in this field.

    What I want to emphasize is that Oxford and LSE are both great universities, but they are not the same. They are, and ought to be, different. There are different kinds of people, and there are universities aimed at different students. What we should wish each other is not to end up in the highest uni in one of the more or less meaningless rankings, but in the university where we would thrive most. We can only trust the admission tutors - which are experienced, though it's hard to judge someone and change their destiny only reading a list of grades and a PS - and hope for the best.

    Good luck to each of us

    So I've heard. And so I've realized. But up until this Friday, I hadn't heard of a single offer and hardly any rejections. I've realized it is futile trying to get into any universities' heads (I get a really good laugh when I see people talking about how their two weeks are up on Wednesday. Because they really keep to deadlines.), but I figured seeing the statistics could be at least a tiny bit reflective of what's sorta going on. The guy who got accepted this Friday had applied on the 15th of October. My girlfriend applied on the 23rd of November.
