    1. GCSE Grades: -= 5x A*'s - 3x A's - 1x B =-
    2. AS Subject & Grades: -= Maths, Arabic, History, English, Economics =- -= A - A - A- N/A - B=- [Respectively]
    3. A-Level Predictions: -= A*A*A A =-
    4. Updates: Received acknowledgment, but nothing else. Really worried about that! Applied on the 12th of October, yet nothing but the acknowledgment.
    5. Anything else you want to add: My passion for Law is a never-ending one. Law is a remedy for my never-ending boredom, and once I open a book discovering its themes, a rush of endorphins hit me, due to the excitement I get. Haha, this is all just an uproar of hyperbole, but in all seriousness, I really want to get into LSE
    6. Other Universities: UCL, Cambridge, Nottingham, Liverpool


    Let's get this thread going :P

    I've seen many get offers during November and December! I'm sure LSE sometimes give out offers in October, but those are for high attaining students. If you're in Initial or further assessment, then you'll be expecting an offer or rejection (hopefully not the latter ) in a couple of weeks.

    Well, this is open for debate. Generally, Universities understand that sending an app before the 15th of October may not only be due to Oxbridge, but perhaps due to studies or etc...

    I honestly don't see a difference, I applied on like the 12th of October and they haven't put me under Initial assessment until 2 days ago, and I know someone who applied on the 15th, and got initial assessment weeks ago.

    Hello, everyone!

    I'm studying History, English, and Biology at Advanced Higher. I am predicted AAA, which is (seemingly) equivalent to A*A*A* at A-Level. I've applied to LSE, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Dundee, and St Andrews (IR, not Law).

    Apparently I'd have something like AAAAAACCCCCC at AS when converted from Higher and National 5. This might not be an apt comparison however, because an A at Higher is apparently equivalent to C at A2, which pins it as being distinct from an A at AS. With this in mind, I already have roughly CCCCCC at A2. Maybe. It's all a mystery!

    I haven't received any correspondence beyond the acknowledgement email, and I applied on the 13th. That is, Friday the 13th. Doomed by fate.

    Patience is a virtue my friend. If you feel like you are yourself a strong applicant, then there is no reason to feel anxious. Success only comes when you start to believe in yourself...

    SAME!! I was getting anxious so I sent them an email and they said that they have a lot of backlog to cover, that's why they're taking so much time.

    I wonder what that might mean. I suppose it could either indicate that there are many more applicants this year than there have been in the previous few years, or that LSE is simply inefficient and / or unprepared this year.
