    That's based on both mine and my classmates' personal experience, and the timing of people posting news of their offers/rejections on the LSE 2016 applicants thread. If you don't know enough about the applications process, don't comment on it.
    Let's not be too rude.

    Hello guys! I have sent off my application before the Oxbridge deadline. But all I have received till now from LSE is the initial review email. I have heard that some others have already received emails about further assessment. Is my case normal? Many thanks if anyone can answer me.

    That is all i needed to hear. Just because you came from a public school, and i went to a state school, you think you are better than me. At university that BS doesnt mean anything. No one gives a **** which school you went to before. And Mr Oxbridge Applicant, its easy to meet an offer for a school, but to get into oxbdrige is something else entirely.
    Now unlike someone who talks about meeting offers, I actually have already gotten offers from Warwick and kings. So come back when you actually have something useful.
    And yet you were the one mocking my school as being "run down" in an earlier post? The point about the Oxbridge rates was one of the ways to prove that it wasn't as "run down" as you tried to put it out to be. So next time you want to play the state school victim, don't post stuff like this, it makes you sound like the elitist

    I dont know which rundown school you went to, but in my school there were no rejections in decemeber
    I've already gotten my offer from LSE and am in my first year of uni. Congrats on your offers from Warwick and KCL, I'm sure that you're very proud of them. Please do go ahead and expect an early offer from LSE, it's always fun to see frustrated teenagers complaining as to why they didn't get "their" offers yet around Christmas time.

    Public schoolboy**

    I never made it sound like I got in Oxbridge - I got rejected post-interview. You really need to improve your reading skills. The Oxbridge comment related to my school as a whole, not to me as a person.

    The reason why I post here is because it's a fun way to procrastinate while simultaneously helping the occasional person, and correcting people like you who come up with all sorts of funny rumours from the top of their head.

    Anyway, you can't even insult me properly (let alone argue for your original point about the December emails), so I think that we can end the discussion there. Best of luck with your application.

    Which offers did you get from Warwick and King's? What course?
    What subjects are you taking by the way?

    Don't forget that LSE is better than Oxbridge in some areas. For example in Economics.

    JohnGreek is trying to answer applicant's questions, which is helpful and you should appreciate it.

    He did. By the way, getting an offer from competitive courses in LSE is a different case to someone getting an offer from the less competitive courses.

    Hmmm, if im terrible at provoking people why are you still talking to me. Somebody seems to have got their knickers in a twist. Good luck in whichever uni you went to, not sure which it is yet.

    If i remember correctly law and BMS at LSE have an offer rate of around 20%. So they are equally competitive.

    Sure, but the quality of applicants might be different. Look up the deviations in average UMS between the two?

    Comparing ums may be a tough factor considering the deviation in subject choice i.e. numerical vs essay based

    You need to compare the quality of applicants.

    They are two different fields so it's tough to say. But both equally as competive amongst the respected cohort.

    For example: Medicine and Biological Sciences are both competitive as well, but Medicine's applicants are way stronger than the Biological Sciences applicants on average, so it makes Medicine more competitive. Their applicants both have same subjects usually.

    We dont have to only look at the numbers and forget about everything else.

    I do agree that it is competitive though, obviously its not easy to get an offer from LSE.

    Anyways, lets end this topic, it wont benefit anyone in the end of the day.

    Is it possible for some rejections to come out today? Left an hour to 5pm and it's so scary
