    Also, i have an offer from warwick for msc economics. How can i compare ucl and warwick as far as economics goes? Do both have career opportunities that are at par? Both need upper second class honors degree though.
    Warwick is higher ranked for Economics than UCL.
    However, it is in a very crappy location. If you do not mind location, it is a better school and graduates have better prospects (again, for Economics).

    When did you apply? Just curious, since I applied for MSc Economics on November 21 and still got nothing.

    Hi all,

    My application for the MA in History through SSEES was just completed yesterday. I had to wait for my fall semester grades and then my recommendation writers took their sweet time...

    I'm American but with family connections to the UK, about to graduate from a well known liberal arts college (oxymoron?) with the equivalent of a first class degree (GPA: 3.968), spent a year at Oxford, etc.

    Problem: I really only want to go to SSEES and only applied there. Was this foolish? Should I dash off an application to KCL? I really have my heart set on SSEES/UCL but I'm concerned its a longshot. Anyone have any figures about acceptances to postgrad programmes at SSEES? Anyone else applying?

    Sure it's not a 3.9687676 GPA? Jeez. Relax and take it easy, you're obviously not an average applicant.

    As for hedging - yes. Apply to other universities as well. It's (always) a smart thing to do, and not only when dealing with university applications..

    Are both UCL and Lse equally particular about taking in people for Msc economics?

    Hey! Does anyone know how long it will take for UCL to get back to you when you have talked about a "quicker application process". I'll have to apply for bursaries and so the administrators told me that they would "speed up the process". Did anyone else have this as well? And how long did it take UCL in general to respond to an application? Thanks so much!

    it really depends, mine took about 1 month to get me a phone interview request and another 1 month to wait for the interview day and another 1 week to get my offer, which was an insanely long process.

    I guess they decided not to make positive decision(s) until the last moment, when they will know exactly what the competition is, and only send rejections now.

    I applied last year and was offered a place but decided to defer and start this September. I wanted to work to the end of my visa in America (runs out at the beginning of September).

    I think it was March last year when I heard back from the department, so you should hear soon. Did you go to the open day in the end?

    Hm, since I am non-UK student I did not even think about it. Oh wow, March...
    Is it easy in fact to find a internship in neuroscience/psychology in the US without being resident - some ads I have checked mention that they cannot accept non-residents.

    I'm about to submit my application...I'm too scared to send it off, as I KNOW there will be loads of errors/typos and whatever else.
    But really, I've been sitting on this for ages, so I need to send the damn thing before it gets too late.

    Good luck to everyone applying.
