Absolutely devastated. I was so frikken confident. The course I applied for is not even that competitive I have no idea what went wrong.
MSc Global MiM
I have a 2:1 around 66-67% in Accounting especially being an international student who did his undergrad from Brunel University London I honestly thought it was an easy shot. I did not even apply for a scholarship.. I have no clue what I am going to do now.. Funny part is they rejected me within 3 weeks. WOW

Being probably the cream of the cream in terms of social science learning, I tend to believe that the LSE gives a lot of importance to the personal statement. I think they look for uncommon profiles. It is not hard for them to find people with various experience and good academic results, however, it is way more difficult to find people who have different experiences of life and who are smart.

I just checked so I applied on the 1st. They rejected me yesterday barely 10 days? I have a solid profile what went wrong? Having a UK undergrad they waived of that GRE/GMAT requirement. Oh man!

Apply to Oxford, get into Oxford and then message LSE and say "fck you, I got into Oxford"

The Global MiM is more competitive than the MiM. I think it is made up of mostly grads with 1st Class. Honestly, it may not be good, for your own sanity and confidence, to be amongst such a cohort. Less enjoyable and too much pressure. Choose another university .... try LBS MiM ... much better rep.

This reckless attitude , overconfidence and a 2.1. That is what did for you. I haven't looked but I am guessing they say entry requirements minimum 2.1.

No, this is not true. The MiM has significantly more applicants per spot, than what does the Global Mim.

I have miscommunicated. What I meant is not in number of applicants but in the acceptance criteria of the accepted applicants. Due to the exchange program with Chicago's Booth and other Ivy League universities, this program aims for a different class of graduates. Almost all, if not all, of the BSc Management graduates who get admitted to the Global MiM are 1st Class Honour graduates.

I’m so sorry to hear that and I completely understand your situation as I used to get rejected by Warwick UCL Edinburgh before getting offer from LSE and invitation to interview in January from Oxford.

But my situation was worse than yours in that these 3 uni rejected me immediately after a few days of application just because my 3-year degree didn’t match their standard. They didn’t even spend time looking at my overall grades, references, motivation letter, GRE scores.

I’m certainly sure that you will be able to attend find university which you will have the most enjoyable experiences. Also you can add second choice to LSE application or reinstate which I’m sure you still have great chances ^_^
