    Hey guys, I got my offer for Economic History on Friday from the LSE. So hopefully I will see some of you guys there next year!
    Hi
    Well done! When did you send your application and when did you receive the 5 week email? Also if you don't mind me asking what are your predicted grades, and what did you get for you AS's and GCSE's?

    Thanks

    Well said. But maybe for some courses like economics and law people will prefer LSE to oxford. Im just saying maybe
    Some may choose LSE over Oxbridge for Economics but it really depends on the type of economics that interests them. For example, If i receive an offer from Cambridge for Economics i'll turn down my LSE offer. I have no interest in going into the Financial sector, Macroeconomics and Policy are something i find a lot more interesting.

    But you're definitely right, i have lots of friends who will pick LSE over oxbridge given the chance.

    If you don't mind, can you tell me you AS subjects and grades you achieved and if LSE does consider which school you went too. I also go to a very low performing school.

    My GCSE's were bad due to a terrible school. Got A*AAAAAABB at gcse and my predicted grades for A level are A*AA. The offer is AAB. Anyone else doing Economic History?


    HUGE congratulations, it's an amazing course I've applied for it.... my GCSEs were 3 A*, 6.5 A and 2B, AS grades were AAAC and predicted A*AA... hopefully I get an offer currently 1 week and 4 days into the 5 week email!

    You will get the two week email usually a few days after your confirmation one! It will say you will be updated in approximately 2 weeks on your application. Some people can get rejected after the 2 week stage but looking at your A2 grades, you most definitely won't (they're incredible ). So then you get onto the 5 week stage, and a few people have said you will get a decision within the 5 weeks of receiving the email

    So my two-weeks was up just under two weeks ago and I still haven't heard back from the IR department!!! I know it takes a while, but people who applied after me have already had their '5 week' email or even offers. I'm just so desperate to hear about my application, even if it's a rejection, just so I can stop stressing! Is any one else still waiting for an IR response?

    Applied on 13th

    Received two week email on 16th

    I have two friends who applied to LSE and they have been rejected. One for Law & Anthropology and one for International History. LSE gives you a reason why they rejected and both of theirs was due to their personal statements not being tailored enough to LSE's course... So were our personal statements meant to be completely about LSE and their course and nothing else? I've included "I would like to study IR or ESPS" in my personal statement because I'm applying to only london to stay close to home and I'm applying to the top unis here.. I'm starting to get worried...

    LSE will understand that you're applying to 4 other universities. They can't expect you to tailor your personal statement JUST to their course. But you should have previously researched their course, what it entails, and make sure you include something that shows this. For instance, you could look at their module list and read a book about it, then mention it on your statement. Also, if IR at LSE is highly mathematical (which I do not know if it is or not), then you would have to mention elements of maths and how it relates to IR.
