    Hey Amar & ninety_nine, thanks for the commiserations! I checked UCAS at 5pm that's when the rejection was there and I had checked at 2:30pm before that, and there was nothing. I'll obviously ring tommorow and ask how they come to the conclusion. As for the other universities; not a bean - which is driving me nuts!
    UCL and KCL are about on par with LSE for law anyway, so hopefully you'll get into one of those! Commiserations to everyone else who got rejected - I guess in the future we should wait a while before concluding it was an event-less day.

    Btw, doesn't this kind of poke large gaping holes in the 'St Lucia' story?

    Hahaha I think everyone assumed that it was a bit of a joke anyway, to be honest it wasn't exactly the most realistic story anyone could have thought of was it?? I'd like to think that LSE's admissions tutors wouldn't just disappear for a holiday midway through the UCAS season lol...

    Unlucky, ah well better to know and get it out of the way. There's bound be an unlucky sod on here (please don't be me) who waits eagerly until the end of March only to be rejected.

    Kingkanoot - yeah, I thought the idea of the LSE reviewing our applications on beach towels whilst sunbathing was a little far fetched :yep:

    No, it doesn't poke any holes in St Lucia story!!! If you find my very first post for today, you'll see that ALL the admission tutors left for the Caribbean EXCEPT for Mr Morrison.
    My mom said Mr Morrison is not a pleasant man. He's always disgruntled and unhappy. It must have been him who was up to no good today (provided thsese rejections were made today - we still need someone to ascertain the status of UCAS track update). So, you see, while his other colleagues are soaking up the sun in St Lucia, Mr Morrison must have locked himself up in his lush office in Holborn earlier this evening, and started sending rejections randomly.
    OR: it could be that the rejections were made by the same Admissions Tutors who are currently in the Caribbean. Who knows how many tequila shots they had today? For all we know, they could have come back to their hotel rooms in disorientated state, accessed the LSE admin website on their laptops, and started sending rejections out of the blue!:cool: which is sad .....

    Perhaps. But aren't the decisions made by department-specific people? If so, this chap couldn't make decisions about both Law and Economics applicants (these are the only the people who've posted so far, other departments may have also recieved decisions). Anyway, I want to believe you - it'd be nice to have someone on this forum with some inside knowledge so we didn't have to second-guess ourselves twice a week.

    Calm down guys, he's just having a bit of fun cos you guys are so freaked out about LSE. The decision will come eventually and it may be the end of March before you hear anything so there's no point torturing yourselves till then

    Yes, decisions are made by department-specific people. Then they send the file to the Admissions Team at the LSE and they have to update the UCAS track.

    But my mom, when she went with the admissions tutors on their last holiday to Cuba (in Feb. 2008), the process was very straight-forward: all of them sat at the beach around a plastic table with their laptops spread out, Cuban cigars in their mouths; Mohitos in their right hands. And then they would go through some of the applicants (because all of them saved the UCAS applications relevant to their department in pdf format on their laptops before coming to Cuba), and would seal applicants' fate.

    'James' - would say the admissions tutor responsible for Mathematics' admissions - 'what do you make of this chap?'. And James would glance briefly at the A-level grades of the applicant in question and say... 'Ah! Nothing impressive! Is his PS any good?' And the Mathematics' admissions tutor would answer 'Not particularly'. And then James would say: 'reject him!' and the Mathematics' admissions tutor would press the 'Unsuccessful' button on the applicant's profile and all of them would start laughing heartily, with the Cuban cigars in their teeth.
    Immediately, the message would get transmitted to the LSE central admissions office (CAO)thousands of miles away in London, and the CAO would update the Ucas track the next day.

    this is a very true account from last year, as witnessed by my mother (btw, James resigned last year and is no longer affiliated with LSE, if that's of any consolation to anyone).

    That's hilarious, I can actually picture that happening as well. Would be kind of ruthless though haha...
