    Guys.. I applied to LSE for Social policy with government on late september. I got 2 weeks email on the 13th of October, but since then I haven't heard anything from them. I got no 8 weeks email, no rejection, and no offer. What is this about? Does this mean my application is not good enough to receive 8 weeks email?

    I am predicted 42/45 in IB diploma, which is far above their requirement...
    I am not sure but I applied for same course on 15th October, got my 2 week email on the 28th october and 8 week on the 1st November... I have no idea if this means anything for yours? I'm sure that they should let you know what is happening regardless? I hope you get the 8 week email!!!

    How competitive is entry for social policy with government? It doesn't seem to be talked about much here, and I'm an international student from New Zealand so don't know a huge amount about it all! Thanks!

    Thanks haha. By the way, social policy with government is not really competitive in terms of grade. However, as they have really low requirements, a lot.. of people apply. I think in the social policy department, it is the 2nd hardest to get into.

    Hope we both get in

    I am also applying to America (Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia etc.) so these would come after Cambridge. LSE would probably come after HYP in America. The competition in America makes LSE's 8% admission rate seem comforting....
    Hey I also think I'm going to apply to America! How did you do in your standardised tests? And have you started your common app essays? I'm really struggling to get started with them

    This is what mine said:

    I am writing to provide you with a further update on your application to the LSE.


    I am happy to tell you that your application is now under consideration by the Admissions Selector for the BSc in Politics and International Relations programme.


    The Selector will be making further academic assessments on your qualifications and personal statement, and will be considering your application in competition with other candidates in your cohort.


    This may take up to eight weeks. I will be in touch at the end of this process to let you know what happens next.


    As always, if you have any questions you are welcome to contact me.

    I have seen a couple of people who were rejected by LSE on the 30th . They are all law applicants. Seems like there are no traces of rejection for any other subjects!
