    There are two offer days. It's not based on when you got your offer, but on your course. http://www.lse.ac.uk/study/undergrad...oldersDay.aspx

    We're flying over for offers day on the 15th and I'm the parent.
    If my dad is well enough, he will come with me. Last year for the Open Day they let my Mum come as well so she could be his helper/carer while I was having a look around. They might let them do that again this time.

    Not suggesting anything wild - just maybe meet for a coffee or lunch?

    Rejected from lse for mathematics and economics. (Predicted the equivalent of A*A*A*) Freakin' sad. I know that My opinion is a bit biased but I think their admission system is terrible. How can they judge only on the statement? We can ask a private counsellor to write it for thousands of dollars so what's the point. If they had a better system they would interview us, or give an admission test like institutions such as Oxbridge and imperial college. I will hopefully be over it soon... Leaning towards imperial college for mathematics with finance though

    You've got a good offer from Imperial. So sad for you. My son felt like that after being rejected by Oxford. Interview system isn't always good. If a tutor doesn't feel he bonds with you at interview, no matter how good you are,you are unlikely to get a place.

    Did they say why they rejected you?

    We all knew the admissions criteria when we applied and while I am not a big fan of them using the PS as the deciding factor between similarly academic applicants, it is the only method they have.

    Ps has to show a real passion for your chosen subject and stellar grades. It's a difficult one.

    I can understand about the stellar grades as that's the same rule
    for everyone
    But this PS thing is way above me
    How can one show passion for a subject they have just started
    studying?

    Apparently they know straight away when they look at a Ps, who is going to be interesting to teach. Beats me!! I would think a lot of exceptional students get turned away from Oxbridge and LSE. Are you going to offers day with your son?

    They said it was because of my statement.
    This is why I say that they should interview applicants

    Not everyone can interview their applicants. Oxbridge spend a lot of money to organise their interviews, and they can afford to do so due to their endowments.

    Sorry for the decision though :/ I know it feels unfair, and in all honestly it's a bit like lottery with LSE!

    What would you have said if they did do interviews but then rejected you after the interview?

    LSE has the prestige and the door opening potential but I have read that the course is supposed to be better at Cass. One thing that helped me choose to apply to LSE was the fact that the first year is the same for BMS, AS and AS & F but you could change at the start of the second year if you hit the required standards.

    Just firmed my LSE offer and insured Bath even though it is a higher offer.

    Felt a little sad rejecting UCL, Bristol and Cardiff but it needed to be done. London here I come.
