Ok cool...i see you shortlisted for LSE too...i would appreciate it if you could post your details on my thread. cheers!

The people on here have no idea what anyones chances really are its just idle speculation designed at comforting one's self perhaps your time would be better spent doing other things.

I spoke a summer school lecturer and he told me that aside from gcses and A'levels, they do look at the strength of the statement and use a % calculation based on your location and number of applicants from the surrounding area in deciding whether to make you an offer.

Besides as if your a foreign student your chances of obtaining a place are much better then if your a home student, which if pretty sad considering its a british university! but hey thats LSE for ya!

I reckon that tomoz will not be a huge offer day....
last year offer day is 18th...which means its a couple of days after the UCAS deadline..which means they would have had the time to go through all the applications..
they are, therfore, able to make quite a number of decisions...
however, this year...its on the 16th which is a only a day after....
theres just too little time for admissions office to consider all applications..
its goin to be only for a couple ofoxbridge applicants...i think
Lol, if they had considered all applicants by the 18th of january why would they have the rest of the people without offers wait 'til the end of march?
They already started considering applicants, even "late" applicants such as me, since i applied on the 21st of november and got rejected on tuesday (or monday can't tell). The majority of applicants will have applied before the deadline, so they still have enough time to consider new ones.

Hi

I received an offer from LSE for Law, in November. ( I applied in late September)

Is there anyone else here who has already got an offer and planning to go to LSE in particular? (to do law? or any other subject)

Good luck to everyone else waiting on offers! )

I hope that's accurate-I wouldn't mind that in the slightest!

from the past offers/rejections, ucas updates just before 12, usually intime for the 12 O'clock UCAS track notification email.
From what you have read about previous years, is this the only time during the day that they give offers? Or do they also continue offers into the afternoon before the 5pm UCAS email?

I concur, LSE sent me an email last week looking for my transcripts and were in touch with my school the day after I emailed them looking for my predictions for my current classes the day after and I submitted my application a couple days after you. I think they are probably looking at anyone who has submitted their applications prior to Christmas holidays. And the Oxbridge people without offers are probably in the 'maybe' pile so they can be compared to everyone else that submits an application

If by foreign you mean outside the EU, as we europeans pay the same price as Uk students, so there's no financial advantage for them to take us. There's still the whole "multicultural" thing that LSE has, but i don't think it weighs that much when compared to money matters lol.

This is the first I have ever heard of this: are you sure? If so it seems a highly controversial policy

As far as i can tell, there might be a few offers between 12:00 and 12:30, but after that, the chances of anything are slim to none.

There might be more places for internationals, but that doesn't necessarily mean they have a better chance? I mean, in some countries, people are forced to study and end up with very strong academic application, thus it may be more competitive? Does any one actually know the international students statistics?

It's written somewhere on lse's website, i think it goes around 60% internationals and 40 % home students, but LSE is a very original place for that matter. The thing is, it's part of somekind of a lobby with oxbridge and other institutions that pressures the government into raising the tuition fees, saying that they can't keep up with america's concurrence if they don't do so. One of their means of pressure is to announce that they're going to accept more international students, and less locals, because internationals pay more.

Disclaimer: this is not a conspiration theory lol, many universities do that.

I very much doubt it - so many people from Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia etc. apply (many of whom are successful) compared to other places outside the EU. LSE don't strike me as the kind of institution that would allow in a mediocre student from New Zealand, rather than a fantastic one from Singapore purely to make up a more diverse student population.

I'm not so sure if tommorow will be offers - I'd imagine they'd be more decisions on the Monday personally. Fingers crossed though.

Offers can come at any time during the day/afternoon and evening (I got a Manchester offer appear around 7pm). It's the notification e-mails that are only sent at 12 and 5. So in theory, if you got an offer at 12:05 -it'd show up on Track but you still wouldn't get the e-mail until 5pm.

Yeah, I was really worried when I heard someone got a gathered pile for the course! Plus someone's already been rejected - eeep. Ah well, I'm post A-level so hopefully I'll hear something (good) soon. Good luck to you!
