    I have written my personal statement but I have a lot of academic stuff and very little EC. Is this okay or should I add more?

    u sure? Cause I have heard that people apply early and sometimes the seats for particular programs become full. So, I thought that might be a disadvantage just in case if I happen to be the one to submit after the seats are filled.

    No that's nonsense, the january deadline is specifically so you get equal treatment. It's not in the unis interest to do it on a rolling basis as they wont be making sure they give offers to the best

    LSE's masters programmes are however on a rolling basis

    I am a first year LSE Maths with Economics student and I had precisely 0 lines of extracurricular material in my personal statement as I simply did not have any space. I instead wrote a paragraph and asked my referee to put in my reference.

    One of recent LSE graduates told me that the admission is based on the rolling basis for undergrad too. Is it true? Can u please find me a reliable information? Thinking that it is a rolling basis and hoping to get the admission decision faster , I thought of applying ASAP( although for some applicants it takes several months).

    Most people don't receive offers till after January anyway for LSE.
    And I think for other unis I've heard they accept like the ones with super profiles early. Then everyone who is like good but not great enough that they would definetly be better than any other candidate will receive their decisions later when the January applicants are taken into consideration. I am not sure how true this is though.

    However, Universities have been doing this for years and it says if you apply before January 15th you get equal treatment so I guess just trust them.

    He means he wrote a paragraph about his extra-curricular activities and asked his teacher/referee to put it in his reference instead of him putting the paragraph in his PS

    Whatever can't fit in your personal statement ask your teacher to put it in your reference.

    If your applying for straight economic how important isn’t it to incorporate an element of maths
    I spoke with someone who applied last year and he said they rejected him because no he didn’t have enough maths and i should speak about calculus.
