    Yup! Applied to MA International Conflict Studies. Got everything in, just waiting for professor's letters. Also applied to LSE but I would be happy with either. I just want to get in somewhere! Hate the waiting....

    Yes, just recently started my personal statement for MA International Relations. I plan on submitting the application before Christmas as I have to wait for my semester grades before I apply. (Planning to get a high GPA this semester so want the extra boost)

    I have an unconditional offer to do MA Public Policy! I'm still waiting to hear from other schools before I decide where to go eventually. The programme at King's looks great, of course. Anyone else got into the same course?

    Got my offer for MA International Conflict! Still waiting for my second rec to come in to hear from LSE, but I'm so excited to know I'll be in London next year.

    It's definitely a lot of weight off (and means not having to job search next semester!)

    Yeah I know what you mean. I'm so excited to be spending next year in the UK! It feels surreal that this time next year we would be in London. I'm from Asia so it will feel like a total change of environment.

    Hi guys,

    I applied and got an offer for the MA War Studies. Anyone else also applying for it?

    Good luck all on your applications! (KCL seems to be handing out offers fairly quickly, they won't let you wait too long)

    Nice! Don't worry too much about Birkbeck. KCL is far more prestigious internationally. What's your profile?

    After new years then para mi - my references came in about an hour ago.

    I had hoped 'quick' would mean 'like, four hours, cause that's totally reasonable'.

    WAH i can't stand this waiting.
    i got mine after 2 weeks of submitting the reference that they requested.

    I take it all back - I got an offer today!!! That was so bloody quick. References in on Tuesday, offer on Friday. WOOOOOOOOO.

    Not sure if I'll accept yet (depends on other unis), but it's such a relief to know I'll end up in London either way.
    Congrats.. wat major you applied for?

    Do you guys know if they only start looking at the applications as both of the references are received? I am kind of annoyed because my grades came in later and now one of my professors left for holidays, so although he has written the reference he doesn't have internet access, so might not be available to send it before January 4th. I mean I know it isn't like a huge deal since I guess they won't really check the applications over the holidays anyway, right?
    I'm just stressing because everyone is getting their acceptances and I'm still waiting one reference (but have submitted and paid).

    They consider your application once it's complete. They won't check unless both references are in. What subject is this for? It may differ.

    International Relations in the Department of War, it is quite a well known department so I think they will probably wait for both of them to be submitted.
    Oh well.. hopefully first days of January won't be too late.

    I got a conditional offer with War Studies with only one reference in. But you're definitely right it's probably different for each department.
