Finally got the offer from LSHTM (Health policy, planning and financing). I am in a dilemma whether to attend UCL for Health Data Science or LSHTM, the programmes are so different though.
Congrats! May I ask how long you waited to hear back from LSHTM?

Congrats! If I may ask, where are you leaning more towards? Have you applied anywhere else?

I can also add that UCL was great when I attended for 4 years for both my bachelors and masters. They really have a well established student union, tons of societies, great bars and study spaces, and probably the only real university campus in central London. I know this isn't specific to the exact programme you applied to but if these factors are also important to you I am more than happy to elaborate on them more.

MSc Infectious diseases, distance learning because I'm too poor to move from pretty Pembrokeshire. I can't believe they got back the next day...I was expecting 6-10 weeks (even more b/c covid) and was also expecting rejection. Crazy times!

The COVID situation actually made me forget I'd even applied. it's been quite stressful in the NHS recently especially as a front line staff member. It took months and months but i can finally say I managed to achieve an offer for Public Health (Health Economics stream) !!!

now the current situation has changed where my family's financial situation has changed as a result of COVID. Thinking of asking them for a deferment.

It took YONKS to hear back. do you think this is reflective of my application or the competitive nature of public health.

Hey! absolutely not! the LSHTM has a long history of taking a lot of time for getting back to applicants! I am sure it is not representative of your competitive nature for public health, if you love it, you'll be great! and just getting in is a major accomplishment.

If you think you might need to defer, you'll have plenty of options. They normally don't accept deferrals due to economical situations but have just changed that because of COVID, and they are taking deferrals from students. Best of luck with everything

Congratulations on your offer! May I ask what your undergrad is? Also how long after applying did you receive the offer, and do you know if you got any of the scholarships?

Thought I'd jump on the bangwagon and add that I have an offer for Medical Parasitology! I applied last year and took a gap year, so will definitely be going in September. Hope to meet most of you there soon!
