:rofl:

I think tomorrow will be an offers day. I don't think there are days allocated specifically for offers/rejections, its gung-ho from now on.

:woo:
Let's hope that's true! I'm in agreement that anything can happen from now on. Check Track Wed and Thursday too.

I reckon its gonna be a rejection day whereby everyone who was beaten by an entrance exam taker will be rejected...


or as it is LSE it could be an action-less day!
Mmm, I don't know about that. Have they had enough time to grade the tests? I'd think they would start doing head-to-head comparisons this week and then do rejections late this week/early next week.

Do Home/EU students compete with those taking entrance exams? I thought that was only internationals...

The foreigners (No I am not a BNP activist!) sat the test last Tuesday, and I assume that they themselves would have been the cream of the crop, thus, there may have been very few of them who took the test.

I think 6 days is a reasonable amount of time to have marked the tests and then compare the international applicants with the remaining applicants.

Remember, the tests were only taken by such applicants because LSE wants to see whether they are proficient in English and have the necessary critical thinking skills etc. I don't think much emphasis will be placed on the test results.

Those who do well/pass will probably then be compared with the remaining applicants on individual merit, and the test results may not be used as an additional tool.

I don't see how everyone assumes that we'll be compared to those who sat the test, we're not even in the same quota! Anyways, i saw that last year there was a bunch of offers on the tuesday of this week (which was the 18th).

It's too late for that lol, it was on the 10th of march. Plus apparently you're german, so you didn't need to do it in the first place.

Are you sure about that? I mean who else is taking the entrance exam except students with non-standard qualifications?

Well people with non standard qualifications, if you did the abitur then it's a standard one to LSE's eyes, same as the french baccalaureate for me. If you came from Norway then you would have had to sit the entrance exam because they don't recognize their qualifications as standard ones.

For Law i'm not too sure, a LOT of people were rejected for Law last week. I received an offer form Warwick on Friday which will sweeten the blow anyways :woo:
So is it a good sign if we still haven't been rejected oor a bad sign that we haven't been given an offer yet either, lol

I think its a good thing. However, if we don't get an offer this week, I think we will be rejected.....

So this week, in my opinion, is pivotal. :woo:

Not necessarily...there were offers on the 31st last year.
But I smell a reply this week too. I applied to one of the most competitive courses but I'm the only person still here so I think they're just about done with their selection process.

I think most of the "smaller courses" will have almost all replies sent out this week.

I'm still in the race for Law, so insh'Allah i'll get an offer some time this week.

Yes, I agree. I just dont see how people who applied for joint courses still havent heard yet. They tend to be smaller and have less applicants per place even though the competition is still fierce. I just dont understand why it has to take them so long to decide..... argh. They probably have already made up their mind but just enjoy the process of torturing us! Have been waiting for almost half a year now.... =(

I'm up for straight International Relations. I think someone else is doing IR and History but, as far as I know, no one else is up for straight IR. I really do think the fact that I applied on January 14th has something to do with it. I never received a Gathered email so maybe they just got to my application late. Lesson to learn: apply early, it really does matter.

Law is extremely competitive don't be surprised if you don't hear til NEXT week Good luck though!

I don't have a clue about OSSD, but maybe you can try converting it to UCAS points and seeing how many you get? AAA is apparently equivalent to 360 points according to UCAS.
It doesn't convert to UCAS points *sigh*
ah well, guess i'll have to see what offers the OSSD ppl get
