    Anyone applying for the Undergraduate Support Scheme this year? And has anyone received any update about it?

    Thanks

    Hi! I applied for it too, they said we should expect to receive a decision by the end of June and that's next week!

    I still haven't heard back. But there's someone who already got named scholarships. Haven't heard anyone that received the USS.

    Where are you from?

    Hey, by named scholarships I reckon you are referring to LSE's other scholarships outside of the USS?

    Yeah, tried finding here & there whether anyone has received the USS for this year's intake. Hopefully we'll hear from them soon.

    I'm from Singapore where are you from?

    Mostly the other scholarship are country based. Not eligible for any of them.

    I am your neighbor, Malaysia.

    There's a couple of people that I know who are still waiting as well, hopefully we will hear back by this week.

    Out of Curiosity (Too....LOL), do you think your friend had better grades than you or his/her need was better specified?

    It’s hard to make comparison between our grades because I took a-level while he took IB, and I don’t really know his financial situation… USS is allocated based on applicants’ financial needs so I guess that his need was better specified. I didn’t take the personal statement section in the application form seriously and I think that’s the reason why I was rejected.
