    I just got my acknowledgment email from the Maths department. It said that I will get another email within 2 weeks updating me on progress of my application.

    It also said, which was the most interesting part, that a decision will take no longer than 12 weeks. That means I'll know for sure by January which is awesome compared to having to wait until March last year!
    How long ago did you apply? Still haven't heard anything from them...

    I haven't heard from Warwick either! I'd have thought that LSE and Warwick would be the quickest to reply as they don't ask for the LNAT or an interview. :rolleyes:

    Filling in the SAQ is tough!

    When did you book your LNAT for?
    Oh this waiting game has only just begun! It's so nerve wracking.

    November 7th for LNAT. How about you? Debating over what to write on the SAQ and trying not to over think/over analyse!

    Warwick's a good choice too. A few of my friends are there and having a great time!

    Just got my acknowledgment from the History department. I am supposed to be receiving further emails over the next few weeks about the progress of my application.

    I will have a definitive answer in 12 weeks time (14th Jan). Exciting times!

    I know!

    Mine's booked for the 29th October, not long left now! I haven't really done any prep for it, I'm hoping that because it's an aptitude test preparing for it won't make much of a difference!

    I'm trawling through the SAQ too - I'm going to have a lot of empty boxes!

    Oh right that's good! LSE replied to my email an hour ago and said that they'd let me know if I was successful within 12 weeks! Warwick are the only uni that haven't got back to me yet!

    Applying for Econ History... not sure if they're under the same umbrella department?

    Got the email today as well, so so so nervous! Econ History at LSE is my dream course

    Applied for History, and got my confirmation email today. They also said I'd get a final decision in 12 weeks. I guess we'll both find out if we get offers around the same time

    Hi guys, I would like to know my chance at LSE.

    I've applied for Economics (BSc) and Mathematics and Economics (BSc) a week ago. I am an international applicant, I do the IB and I do not have any GCSE or equivalent. (which doesn't matter as I'm an international applicant.)

    My overall predicted grade is 42, with 7,7,7,7 in HL and 6,6, in SL and 2 bonus points.

    HL: Math, Physics, Chemistry, German B
    SL: English A, History

    My school does not offer Economics, but I've learned it myself and wrote my Extended Essay on it. I have done further reading on Economics, and especially regarding the Game Theory.

    Do I have any hope? I am slightly worried that my predictions might be a little low compared to others.

    I'm not sure if you're being serious or just having a joke.. of course that's a credible application! Your predictions are fine, and as long as your personal statement and reference are of a similar calibre I think you've got a good chance! I know someone who didn't take Economics either and still ended up getting an offer, so you're sorted on that base! I think I saw you an another LSE thread... trust me you have a good shot! best of luck, hope you get in

    Can someone give me an opinion on this:

    Armins father remarried last easter before his exams, this led to him being referred to a doctor for medication as he suffered a trauma perhaps this can explain why he didn't get all As at his as level exams.

    This is roughly what was stated in my reference. Do you think it can be considered as mitigating circumstances? I got ABBB(all Bs 79%) at AS level now i am predicted A*A*AA. I am applying for history.

    Ah thank you for that It was a genuine worry by the way . I know it is a not bad score, but last year the one person (although he was the only one applied) got in was 45 predicted, and most other people seemed to get those scores as well, so I was a little worried.

    One more worry that I have at the moment is that I got a B predicted for my economics extended essay. Do you think it will be a deal breaker for my application? (A is max, and although my supervisor told me it's going to be a very high B, all that LSE sees is that, B, so...) Again, they might not make a big deal out of it as I taught myself and did it by my own, but still B is not great if you're going for Economics at one of the best institutions in the world, so just wondering. Would it be a big deal?

    I forgot how much you said you got for TOK, so I don't know what your core combination is, but given the fact that
    a) you don't take economics
    b) your school doesn't offer economics, which likely means that there isn't a specialist economics teacher at your school to guide and supervise you, they shouldn't judge you too harshly!

    Im applying this year for BSc Economics too! If you were to get offers for both your courses from LSE, do you know which one you'd pick?

    You can't get offers for both courses - one will always be a rejection.

    Rejected already for Law. A bit disappointing considering that I had perfect grades and predicted 44 at IB. The reason they gave me was that there were better personal statements. Oh well. Life goes on.

    : ( I'm sorry. You still have other universities to hear from though, so all the best for that! When did you send in your application?
    I'm an International and also applying to Cambridge so I sent it really early, something like 6th September. Just a little bit stunned that the rejection came so quickly and also because LSE was my 2nd choice.

    Well, I'm certain that you will get into Cambridge and the LSE rejection won't matter at all in the grand scheme of things.

    Some people got accepted in two weeks after that email, others got rejected, and some have been told that their applications will be considered further for another 5 weeks and that they've jumped over the initial hurdle. It varies from person to person.
