hii congrats to all those who got in LSE in 2020! Im currently a CBSE student in India and wish to apply to LSE for law in 2021 as its my dream school!! Can anyone give me a little guidance on how to enhance my chances of getting in?
I have a good academic record, scored 90-95% from 9th grade to 12th grade (currently in 12th)
Im an avid MUNer, debater and orator, i perform theatre and have been volunteering too. I also write poetry and prose and have a blog. Im extremely passionate about law and want to study at LSE!
If anyone has any advice, please help me out because this is soooooooo stressful

Hey there! I don’t work in admissions so I won’t have the EXACT answers but I did hear when I applied this year that LSE prioritise the personal statement over other elements of your application so I would focus on making that the ‘best’ you can. I wouldn’t focus so much on your extracurriculars (things like theatre and volunteering) I would focus more on supercurriculars like attending law conferences and what you gained/learned from them in detail. I didn’t put any extracurricular activities in my statement I just argued about economic theories and talked about activities that I related to economics and elaborated on that. (Luckily I got an offer!)
I think if you display a real passion (don’t use that word) for law in a sophisticated manner you should have a good shot of getting an offer.
Good luck in your application!

thanks for the advice! I didn't expect to get a good reply on TSR but this community is so kind!
