    Just wanted to check if anyone is applying for this program as well.

    My Profile:
    BCom 74% (India)
    CIMA Part Qualified
    GRE Q780 V540 AWA4
    IELTS 8.5
    Good Recos, Internship and a research paper.

    This is my second choice after MSc Economics (2 Year)

    Can anyone comment on my chances for both?

    Also, does anyone know the GRE requirement for the Ecotrics prog. They've listed it for the Economics one but not this one.

    Well the MSc Economics course will be less selective than EME. What is your math background like? Have you done any real analysis or advanced statistics courses?

    In my undergraduate degree I have done mathematics and statistics but not the level required, therefore I've applied for the 2 year program.

    The specifications say that you need atleast A level mathematics. I've done the equivalent from India (I know for a fact that LSE really likes the Indian Secondary System) and I got a 98/100.

    Do you mean to say that the MSc EME is tougher to get into than the MSc Eco or do you mean in terms of math/stat requirements?

    Do they look at AWA for MSc Economics?

    Both. The math requirements are certainly not just A-level math. Are you sure you're looking at the MSc requirements and not the BSc? That said, the two year route would give you time to take some math methods courses in your first year so it might not be absolutely crucial.

    Do they look at AWA for MSc Economics?
    If they're asking for GMAT from International applicants, they will obviously consider it. To what extent? I don't know.

    Good luck.

    They're asking for GRE but they've also mentioned that they will keep in mind that international applicants might not score extremely well in the verbal section.

    Plus an AWA of 4 on 6 is not absolutely horrible right?

    I'm really hoping on either cambridge or LSE although its a long shot.

    i've got Warwick so far!
