    Sent my application at the start of November, just got the '8 week' email for History. Hopefully it doesn't take too long to get a decision back!

    Does anybody know if the christmas break counts in the 8 week period, or is it 8 weeks excluding the 4 week LSE christmas break

    I'm assuming it counts the Christmas break. If not, we'll hear by early Feb which whilst annoying is better than the end of March.

    It doesn't, I read that somewhere on their website.. You should hope to hear back before the break because they won't be looking at applications over the break but will receive tons of new ones.. That was my motivation to apply early; hoping to hear back before the 19th of December

    Ok thanks. I got the 8 week email today which would place 8 weeks on 9th jan. Do you think I should expect it before the break even though 8 weeks is quite a bit after the beginning of the break, or should I expect to hear back 3-4 weeks after 9th jan?

    Most likely late Jan/early Feb - decent by LSE standards

    Questionnaire is just for some subjects. History (my subject) also doesn't get it for example

    I feel like I'll get rejected for not doing FM earlier and lack of A2 FM. I'm doing an AS this year, standard maths was quite strong. I swear they don't look for people interested in Economics, they just want mathematicians :/

    still waiting..

    Does anyone know how many offers they give for each course to ensure that places are filled? For example, if there are around 40 places how many offers would they give out?

    I think the offers are handed out quite randomly throughout the year so don't worry! They made a friend of mine hang on until March last year to give them an offer so, as long as grades etc are all pretty good, you should be fine Best of luck!
    Ok that's not too bad then! Oh, waiting until March must have been painful! Ah thanks, hopefully my application was strong enough! Good luck to you too

    If it's any consolation, I sent mine on October 9th and only got the 8 week email last Friday, but I got my offer only 6 days after that, so could happen all at once

    Could it be that LSE is no longer doing the 'gathered field' approach ? At least not for the obviously top notched applicants?
