    Hello, has anyone who applied to this course received any update? I applied in late September (which is relatively early i think), but I haven't heard anything yet.

    Thanks for the reply. As far as I know, they only give first batch of offers to desirable applicants in Jan and Feb, however the majority of applicants will receive updates around March 8th. So it is still far to go......

    Hi! I applied during Christmas. I suppose it's a bit late. The status is still "under consideration of dept"
    May I ask what's your undergraduate major? I'm a language student and fear that my maths and statistics background may be too weak for the course.

    It seems that there are much fewer people in this year's thread.

    Hello,
    I don't think maths and statistics matter in this course. Because if you check the course website (https://www.jbs.cam.ac.uk/programmes...class-profile/), the mainstream (47%) of previous students are from Law, politics & humanities.

    Thank you Zhedong!
    My background is quite typical anyway. I really doubt whether I stand a chance, but I suppose it's worth trying.

    Could you please post here when you have received any updates? Wish us good luck! : )

    Hey. I wonder if you have submitted any essays, like PS/SOP, as part of supporting documentation?

    No it is not in the list of supporting documents. By the way, I know some people who have applied to this course got rejections in January. So if you haven't received rejection, it is a good sign that denotes you are still in the line.

    Aww really? Sorry to hear that. Do you happen to know when they applied? I wonder if the Committee have already reviewed my materials.

    It doesn't matter when you apply. The things is that the committee will review your application on a rolling basis (they review as soon as you submit), however the decisions will only be declared around March 8th (based on past posts in this forum). Despite some excellent candidates can receive decision in January or February, many candidates need to wait until March 8th to receive a decision. If you didn't get any rejection before that date, then you are mostly likely to get an offer.

    Good luck Zhedong!

    Does everyone who applied have a 1st. I applied with a high 2:1 was wondering if my application would still be properly considered.

    Hello,

    It is a very difficult question to answer because in the past there are some candidates with high 2:1 admitted to this course. There are also some rejected (my classmate with 68 get rejected in January). I would suggest having a try and let's see what'll happen.

    I guess it's a good sign for me then considering I applied in November and haven't been declined yet. Fingers crossed.

    Hey guys, new to the thread. I am still waiting back to hear. About me: I am a third year LSE philosophy student. Achieved a first in both my first and second year (both of which count towards my degree) and am predicted a first in my final year. Completed a Summer Internship with the Tata Group in Mumbai for 10 weeks last Summer, and currently run my own business, hence the desire to pursue management. Good luck to you all and hope to see you guys next year.

    Hello seeyajulia

    Based on last year posts, it is likely that in next week (around Mar 8th) we will hear some kind of decisions.

    Kind Regards
