Hello! I just received an email that I've been placed on the waiting list.

"Our programme selectors have given initial consideration to your application for but unfortunately they are not yet able to reach a final decision and wish to reconsider your application in a few weeks' time. Your application has therefore been added to the programme waiting list"

Does anyone know what the chances are for someone to be on the waiting list? Have I been subtly rejected haha.

My application has been forwarded to my Second Choice for consideration in the meantime though.
When had you submitted the application? And for what course?

Wow that was quick. Mine was processed on around 11th Oct. No response after that.

OH!
I asked because my transcript has moved to the bottom and the university name has also disappeared, it only says copy received - which is consistent with the transcript drop theory.
Do let me know if any of you are in the same situation or have received an offer letter yet!

Thanks
Whoa! Seems like a good sign. May I ask what program did you apply for?

It's definitely not a subtle rejection. I think that at this stage of the application process (with it being early November), they waitlist candidates when they like their application but want to have a better picture of how you compare to this year's pool of applicants. I'd say it's a good sign at this stage!

Hello everyone, as a non-british applicant I'm wondering whether or not to include a photo of yourself in your CV, since it is a common thing here in Germany but I don't know about the UK and the information I found about the issue appeared to be rather vague.
So, should I include a photo, or did any you do so?
Hopefully someone knows a little more than I do, and can help me out
Thanks in advance, cheers

All of the UK relevant information I've found online seems to suggest that you shouldn't include a photo of yourself in your CV. I personally didn't include one and I'm sure that had no bearing whatsoever on my application/offer.

Edit: I think it may be important to add that all the sources I've read online strongly recommend AGAINST adding a picture to your CV in the UK because strict anti-discrimination laws require companies to demonstrate that their hiring processes are fair and free of biases. I'm not sure how relevant that is to university applications/offers. I'm also an international applicant though, so maybe a British applicant would be able to give you more useful advice!

A photo isn’t needed in your CV. Universities are pretty similar in that they just want to judge based on academic ability and any professional experience.

Hi All,

Does anyone know if we can defer an offer from the year 2021/2022 to 2022/2023 ?
From what I understood applicants for 2020/2021 could only reinstate and not defer for 2021/2022 and I’m wondering if this still applies. I haven’t found anything online.

Thanks a lot for your help and good luck with your application

Hey there, another question:
I want to apply for behavioural science and in the "assessing your application" section, under academic achievement they also lost predicted grades. Does anyone know what exactly that means?
My university sadly does not provide documents predicting ones grades

Hi!

Under normal circumstances, you have to request a deferral through LSE's "How Do I" page for offer holders, which is then reviewed by the department and is either granted or isn't. I deferred my 2020/21 offer to 2021/22 back in March; now I'm just waiting for next steps. They decided to stop deferring offers in late April, but mentioned that they would honour deferrals granted before that change in policy.

I'm not sure if this is a permanent change in policy or if they will bring back the option to defer offers. Check the "How Do I" page for offer holders; you should be able to find out there.

Good luck everyone - went through the application process last year and now studying the MSc Applied Social Data Science programme. If anyone has any q's about the general process then happy to help!
Hi there! I'm somewhere between a 2.1 and 2.2 for my undergrad degree from a Centre of Excellence, with 4+ years of impressive relevant experience. Do you know anyone who has applied with similar marks and has gotten an offer?

At the LSE generally? I don't think anyone (unless through exceptional circumstances) has a 2:2 since it's an entry requirement. If you have a low 2:1 + relevant experience I'd say go for it! Definitely seen people with Firsts be rejected over those with 2:1s who are better fits for the programmes (which relevant experience contributes to).

Hi! Has anyone been put on the waiting list recently? My application was processed on 11/10, and on 11/13, I was informed that I am currently on the waiting list of my programme... Don't know if it's a good sign or not, since it took only 3 days for the consideration, I thought it would have taken longer...
