    I got offers from 4 of my 5 offers and three of them I'd much rather go to than my remaining choice that I have left.

    Basically I want to substitute it for LSE, and I want to know if they will see me as a "late candidate" or something similar to what you are when you apply after the 15th of January and instantly reject me. It is within 14 days of applying via UCAS as well.

    No, they won't regard you as a 'late candidate'.

    If you substitute before the 15 January then you wont be classed as late.

    However you can only substitute within 14 days of applying.

    So I'd have just as good a chance as someone applying today?

    If it's less than 14 days since you applied yes. If it's longer than that then you cannot substitute a choice.

    LSE don't care whether you applied on 1st September or 15 January. And they wont be able to see that you have substituted a choice.

    They do however place a high emphasis on the PS so make sure that your course choice will have a suitable PS.
