It's gone ok so far, just waiting nervously for a response. How about you?

Good luck, hope you get in!! I’ve not submitted mine yet, still getting my personal statement checked over. I keep worrying I’m submitting it a bit late but I know it’s probably fine lol

Attending this September as well!
Hi, everyone! Congrats on your offers so far. :smile:

I will be applying to LSHTM for the MSc in Public Health. I'm hoping to apply later this semester as I am waiting on responses from other institutions. I wonder if anyone else is in the same position as me! I don't want to be in a position where I have to pay £500 to keep my offer when I haven't back from anywhere else!
Hey, I'm doing the Msc Public Health course at LSHTM currently; feel free to ask me any questions or drop me a pm!

Received an offer for Health Policy, Planning and Finance (joint programme with LSE). I am waiting to hear back from LSE regarding a separate application for International Health Policy. Anyone got any thoughts/experience about which school to go for? I am torned between LSE prestige and LSHTM attractive list of modeules (some of which overlaps with LSE).

It’s a no brainer. The joint program will offer the best of both prestigious worlds.

Has anyone else waited over 6 weeks for a response? If so was it because it was a rejection? 😂

Oh I'm so jealous! Congratulations 💖. I've applied for medical statistics so 🤞🤞 might see you in a module or two! Btw - was it 6 weeks from application to offer or 6 weeks from interview to offer?

They didn’t require an interview for mine but I applied mid November and they didn’t email one of my references so they didn’t start to process the application for a while, so it was 10 weeks from when I actually applied. Id recommend to anyone to check that your references heard from them just in case.

Ah I had an interview and then they requested a reference from my second referee and its been like 3 weeks since they got that 😅

Aha nice, I wouldn’t worry, even if they take over 6 weeks to reply there are probably a decent amount of places still available this year with covid and everything
I applied end of November and still haven't heard back and no interview :frown: Fingers crossed for all of us! Does it just say 'Academic Team Review' for y'all?
