    Where are you from?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I am from Greece and I also received the further assessment e-mail but it only said that I probably will be invited to sit the UGAA as only the most competitive applicants need to complete it. I believe that the invitations will be sent till late February so are you sure that you received an invitation or the admission officer just wanted to inform you that there is the possibility to be required/invited to sit the exam.

    Assuming this is about accommodation: recommending you to stay in an LSE hall (not a UoL one).
    If you can, go with either Passfield or Carr Saunders (passfield is the best because it's quite close to LSE). High Holborn is quite expensive and the social life there isn't the best. The location can be very noisy as well.

    Got rejected even before the 8 weeks mail for IR haha
    I'm from the EU and I got predicted 19.5/20 in the French baccalaureate so that would be the equivalent of A*A*A*.
    My personal statement got reviewed by a former Oxford Admission Selector so I'm quite sure it's a strong one.
    The reason for my rejection was apparently "a not convincing enough" personal statement.

    But my school sent many students to Oxbridge and never to LSE. The teachers are convinced that it is because we don't fit a certain profile that they are looking for. LSE even rejected a girl from my school who got 20.6/20 at the end of the year (only 10 students out of 1 million per year in France get more than 20), and she ended up in Harvard. Just to be sure, I DON'T believe in the rumor according to which LSE rejects students applying before mid October (that's my case) because they would be applying to Oxbridge (quite a strong rumor around here).

    And don't get me wrong! LSE is an excellent university and who ever got admitted to it truly deserved it! It's really competitive but it's because of its excellence.
    Some of us just don't fit a certain profile LSE is looking for, so if you got rejected, don't worry you'll still end up in some great university I'm sure
    Your stats are amazing, and kudos to your friend who got admitted to Harvard!

    Hey I saw you on another thread! So I know you're French as well
    Yeah they're quite good (i got three 20 for French lit and TPE last year), so that's why I don't really understand LSE rejection.
    Oh and I didn't know that girl, she's just a living legend in my high school (two years older than me).

    But anyway, I'm not that upset I think I wouldn't be able to live in such a big city like London after all...
    Good luck for every one of you!
