Just got a conditional offer - MSc International Relations!!! Applied in Mid-Jan.
:O well done! what are the conditions?
my prof still did not write a ref letter damn it.
Anyone got the GSS award? Are we supposed to mail them supporting documents, such as my father's income statement, after getting the award?
Hey everybody, Applied a couple of weeks ago, still waiting for fourth email ?! is it normal it takes so long? anyways good luck to all of you applying and congrats to those of you who got in!
okay that's reassuring ! good luck with your application then. Fingers crossed...
I am also waiting for the 4th email. Will probably get it next Monday or Tuesday.
catalan - similar thing happened to me as well. Within 1 day I was rejected. Must be pretty stringent standards.
As for living in London on the cheap. It can definitely be done. If you don't like big cities than it's probably not the place for you, but I would never describe it as miserable for living with limited financial means.
Catlan and Lee Miller,
Did you have a significant disparity between the "costs of attendance" and your "available funds for attendance" (I forget LSE's precise terminology), as computed in the GSS application?
Do you think you provided pretty compelling reasons for financial aid in the GSS personal statement?
Just curious - I wonder what exactly are the conditions for financial aid through GSS...
I had about 3,000 GDP discrepancy or so I think which quite frankly I was lowballing. I thought I wrote a compelling personal statement about why I needed funds (ie I showed why I couldn't get funds from traditional sources like parents and the government) and also had applied for a couple of scholarships, etc.
