    Oh well that sounds about right. Lets hope to hear from them soon now, it's been wayy to long. Do you have any idea as to whether they interview all applicants that they haven't rejected or do they give out direct offers as well?
    I have no idea honestly...I'd imagine all applicants have to do interviews...not quite sure!

    Has anyone heard anything for MSc Economics? My six weeks after "Application complete" is soon coming around.

    Also does everyone need to do an interview before receiving an offer?
    I received an offer late November, no interview needed. Good luck with the application.

    Hi everyone!
    I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a way that one could ask UCL to speed up the decision process. I am currently on week 3 of waiting, so I understand that I have approximately another 3 weeks of waiting. However, I have to reply back to Trinity College Dublin on 24 March, and I don't think that there is a way that I can ask for an extension. Any advice on what I should/could do?

    They won't speed up their decision. If you're lucky they'll get back to you before the quoted 6 weeks. I received my offer after 14 business days and I sent my application in on the 6th of January. In the worst case scenario you could always accept TCD offer and reject it later if you get an offer from UCL (if that's what you're planning to do). That's assuming that they won't require a deposit when an offer has been accepted.

    My boyfriend applied for MSc Economics at UCL last week (a couple of days before the final deadline) and he was wondering how long it took for people to hear back? He's worried that since he applied late he won't have a fair chance... Is it first come first serve or do they make offers in batches? He's also still waiting for his second reference, will the application not be considered until both are received? Any advice would be appreciated.

    I'm afraid that if your references aren't ready, you're application is not active. So, if the deadline has already pass I think the application is not viable. Tell him to check this with a mail. And luck!

    Thanks for your reply, he contacted the department before he sent the application and they said that the deadline was for the application, not the references. If that's not true then their email was very misleading...

    Has anyone successfully applied for Environment, Science and Society? I am on the verge of submitting my application but WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT I HAVE AN EXCELLENT STATEMENT! I am writing this from Canada and it is -25 degrees outside right now -- can't be here next year. Any practical advice would be much appreciated!!
    I applied for this course and got an offer last week I am absolutely chuffed. As for the statement, it took me quite a while to get it ready. I wrote and rewrote it too many times and my partner told me that it won't help if I keep copying and pasting and I should just send it off and wait and see. I hope you get an offer too and maybe we'll meet in September

    Anyone knows if they interview people applying to the 1+3 programme (political science department)? I know they do an interview to discuss the PhD applications, but I'm not sure about 1+3, since you could discuss the proposal thoughout the M-year before doing the official application for the PhD.

    By the way, I already got the conditional offer for the MSc.

    Anyone have an opinion on the appropriate time to wait before reminding a referee to upload?

    (I asked my prof to be my referee last september, but due to sorting out funding/changing course decisions - my general anxiousness - applied on Sunday. Emailed my prof a week ago to expect an email from UCL in the next few days).

    1 week? 2 weeks? I know a few years ago people had problems with the emails not being sent out, but now you can just 'resend' the email.

    If you asked your referee last week to expect an email from UCL, then email him again tomorrow asking whether he has received an email from UCL.

    My friend's application was delayed almost a month because his referee simply forgot and my friend didn't want to remind him.

    Thanks - and yep that's exactly the trap of politeness I'm trying not to fall into!
