    I got 22, which I was very happy about considering I only ended up with a B in Crit Thinking, what did you get? And yeah, that is how they work out the average.

    Yeah it is just a more detailed version of Crit Thinking with slightly more technical vocabulary and I think it requires more analysis as well, the answers are nowhere near as obvious as they were for the CT equivalent.

    We do indeed, heard someone got an offer early January for Law but since then...nothing.
    I got 21. Lol. And an A for crit. thinking. :P

    early january sounds way too far in the past now. Hmm.. God luck for your application.

    Hold up.

    Just because a uni has a good general rep, does not give it the right to be the best at a specific subject. I mean BBB was the offer from LSE.
    Well warwick gave me bbc, so are you saying that means they're no good as the offer is low?!

    hiya guys,

    I'll be goin to LSE, fall '09. I am an international student and looking to take private acco. However, I am not too sure on which areas to look in. I've been checking sites like gumtree and craiglist. I have one very important condition, I should live within 15 mins walking distance to school and the locality should be safe.

    Could you suggest some locations I should be searching for?

    Thnx a bunch

    From what I've seen most, if not all, L101 offer-holders have FM. Anyone with an offer not have Further Maths? Afaik the typical offer is AAA+pass in FM which I didn't do as my school doesn't offer it, what are the chances without it?

    if your school doesn't offer a FM then it shouln't be a problem but does LSE know about this (ie reference )?

    Yea it was mentioned in my reference but nevertheless, I'm worried that the majority of successful applicants have it

    I do not appear to have a "Gathered Field" e-mail so far. Does this mean that I'm about to be rejected or that that they didn't send them out for Government and History applicents?

    Sorry for the bother!

    Ok so basically... i've applied to LSE for law (2009 entry) - i applied september and im still waiting for a reply... so 5 months... and still nothing

    I think i got a "gathered field" email because it said that they were still considering my application and would let me know by the end of march... is that basically what everyone else in the gathered field got?

    also applied to: KCL, QM, UCL with an offer from the first two and a rejection from UCL where the reason was simply "too much competition"

    Did you apply quite late?
    They tend to stick very early applicants who are good but not outstanding in the gathered pile, for comparison against later applicants.

    dont worry just because successful applicants have FM doesnt mean it played a critical part in the offer escpecially when 99.9% only need pass. And you must be considered a strong applicant youre still in the running. PS is always important and I do feel that it was the ice breaker - when my AS werent that good. Good luck !

    No, I applied before the Oxbridge deadline, the 14th of October I think.

    (I didn't apply for Oxbridge btw)

    Your not definitely going to be rejected, you must still be under consideration or they would've rejected you sooner. Since some gathered pile people have already been rejected, it's not always a good thing to have got that e-mail.

    Well, that's good enough for me!

    :yep:

    (OK, that's a total lie, but for such a weak applicant I suppose it's the most I can reasonably hope for)

    Fingers crossed for the next rejection day! Friday/Monday I would assume...
