    How many offers do you think they give out in relations to places?

    For example Government last/this year however you want to see it, has/have 33 students studying the course. But how many offers do you think LSE gave out for this course? Including those who didn't make their offer and those who for some bizarre reasons went to other institutions.

    3 offers per place as an average at LSE courses (this is what an admissions tutor told us in a talk). However, the ratio of offers to places will presumably vary quite significantly from subject to subject. There may only be a small number of applicants given offers in excess to the number of available places on oversubscribed courses and vice versa.

    Wouldn't be sure, I think it would differ a lot between courses depening how strong LSE is at it compared to other institutions etc. I've been trying to find a statistic on this but I can't.

    Just received my confirmation email!

    To run with the fashion, I may as well ask the annoying questions.

    Does this mean I have been accepted?

    What are my chances of getting an offer based on this email?!?

    Lol.

    Confirmation email acknowledging receipt of your application, or confirmation that you have been accepted onto the course?

    If the former is true, then you have just joined the ranks of the 'LSE applicants wanting to get an offer' group. Welcome my friend to a life of anticipation and obsessively checking Track. Nobody here would be able to able to tell you about the chances of an offer - it's all in the hands of the admissions tutors. All I can say is good luck.

    If you mean the latter option though, WOW!

    It's not all about the grades, and in this case it most likely wasn't. I'm growing increasingly suspicious of my reference and its possible mention of my suitability for a management programme. Other than that the reference was stellar.

    However, my PS might not have been what they were looking for. I made it a little bit more original, and my PS helper on TSR urged me to change it, even though my IB coordinator (done the job for 15 years) said it was fantastic. I had a really hard time deciding whether to believe an unknown person on TSR or to trust my coordinator's experience, and I ended up making only very slight modifications.

    Do you think I should ask for feedback?
