Hi there! I’ve applied to the MSc Applied Social Data Science 2021 and was wondering if you could share your experience regarding how long it took the department to assess your application and make an offer to you?

Thank you in advance!:smile:

Sure! Took 8 weeks excluding the Christmas break. Heard back in mid-January. Transcript dropped a couple days before the offer.

Hey! People who have deferred their offers from 2020 to 2021/22 (I'm aware there might not be many out there due to LSE's decision to stop deferrals from end of April onwards), did your personalised information on LSE For You disappear? I've signed into LSE For You but can no longer see the personalised tabs for offer holders such as accommodation, reply form, financial undertaking form, etc.

Hey!
No, I got a waiver since I already have a UK postgrad degree.
