    Hi everyone!

    I applied to the MSC IR (Research) course and I received a notification yesterday that I was placed on the waiting list (applied early October). They said they will notify me of an outcome within 8 weeks from now.

    Is this good or bad from your guys perspective?

    I dont think thats bad i have not received anything and i have applied to the same program in mid october. A considerable number of people usually decline their offers so there is a good chance you will get their seat. Fingers crossed for both of us and when did you exactly get your acknowledgment mail?

    For me I think it’s a good sign as they tend to appreciate your academic profile but just need a bit of time to digest all information and make a final decision.

    In my case I waited all the way from beginning of October to end of January with no news or update and the offer accidentally arrived at the beginning of February.

    Hey, It’s the same here. I applied LSE MSc IR in late October, and received a notification email that they are putting me on a waiting list. The email said that they want to gain more understanding about the applicant pool this year. I assume it is the exact same email. Fingers crossed. I’m from the University of British Columbia in Canada.
