thank you for your encouraging comment. I appreciate it.
No worries Kim, but if you think about it, it does make sense, there are still too many good economics applicants that applied pre-oxbridge that haven't got places. If you survive the next round of rejections you are very likely to get an offer IMO.

Im sure you'll get in with those grades! they would be nuts to reject you.

Don't wanna put your confidence down its supposedly rare for someone to hold offers from both UCL and LSE
my friend does he applied to pure econ for both and got the UCL offer way ago in november and LSE offer like 2 days ago
he was also rejected from cambridge
so it is possible

So, I've just finished this time-consuming process. This is only for pure economics. Note that there are still 22+ early applicants waiting for decisions and the list is not exhaustive.

N.B. Crossed out those who are suspicious of authenticity (i.e. those who provided minimal information and/or have not posted on TSR more than six weeks) to make sure the validity of sample.

Please read this carefully: I first would like to apologise for the fact that this list is only for pure economics. However, even if you haven't applied to straight economics course, you can still make use of this list as a yardstick since economics is the most oversubscribed course (i.e. simply there are more samples, which is a crucial factor in making a speculation) at LSE which I believe that it could represent/reflect patterns at other courses as well. I hope this helps.

Remaining early applicants - checked thoroughly

Wow.. haven't checked this thread for some time and it's gone out of control, it seems ! (nahh)

Erm yearh... I'm an early applicant who didn't get the gathered pile e-mail so it's kinda strange and frustrating for me. I wonder what they are thinking o_O Anymore theories anyone? :P

Yea this is true...Well maybe apart from a couple of exceptions. Basically I think the shortlist group is just a pool of people they have gathered who are good enough for an offer BUT because of the competition, they are forced not to give out an offer straight away. At the end of the deadline they will review how many offers they have given out to others (people who got offers straight away) and depending on numbers they will give out more or no offers to the people in the shortlist group. So for example if accounting and finance was very competitive last year then all or some of the people on the shortlist would have to be rejected HOWEVER if the numbers are a little low then maybe some offers can be given out to people on the shortlist. In the unlikely situation of the course being low on numbers then I think everyone on the shortlist would get offers..........However this is just my view and opinion...

I was not a gathered pile applicant but I take a more positive view for those with gathered emails.

What it could mean as you say is that you are good enough for a place but not quite good enough to be offered a place straight away. Hence they want to compare your application with those received after the 15th of Jan. They will get some good applicants after this deadline and will compare these against the gathered pile applicants and see who they give offers to accordingly.

So if applicants after the 15th are not as good as you, you should get an offer.

I have received an acknowledgment email of course. But my UCAS application was not delivered to LSE until 10/12 – so according to the opening post in this thread I missed the shortlist email days.

However, despite my application not being early – it is not late and therefore I don’t feel disadvantaged in any way.

Any thoughts? Since it does some that most people on this thread fired off their applications really early.

Personally, I think the earlier you send it the better it is, if you send your application in December, by the time they get round to properly considering it it's going to be January February time, when a lot of offers will already have been given out. Just what I think really, I mean, it might make the difference if you're a really borderline applicant.

For 2 of my friends it turned out better to send it later!
They sent their applications a month later than mine (All of us for accounting and finance). I got a gathered field e-mail but both of them didn't and they both got an offer on Friday!
