    I got an unconditional offer today. I'm over the moon! I got no GSS though. It only took them 2 minutes from when I submitted the GSS application to getting the answer.

    Hello,

    My boyfriend is applying for the Msc Environment and Development course. He has an engineering background and did a bunch of courses in environmental engineering. His grades are near a 3.7 but he has work experience in finance with a focus on developing areas in Africa, a GRE score of 1590 and stellar extra curriculars (he's a Trinity College grade 8 pianist and a national level basketball player) Any pointers for him? Also, how competitive is this course?

    Yeah, I noticed that too, unfortunately. Have you applied for either program? If so, what's your application status? I applied to IPE but my application status is still listed as "under consideration."

    I'm in the same boat. My application was forwarded to the IR department on the 5th of March and my current status is "Under consideration by the department." I am totally FREAKING OUT! Hopefully, "closed" just means that they're not accepting any new applications for the programme?

    I plan to call them as soon as the office opens. Let me know if you hear anything...and good luck!

    Yeah, and what a terrible boat it is. I've written more about my situation, and what it could mean, in another thread http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=852319. I think mine was "under consideration" around March 10th or so for IPE.

    I plan on calling tomorrow too and just hope that there's a disconnect between the course availability update and the online status tracker. Best of luck to us both!

    I was pretty shocked about that too. But thinking about it I'm pretty sure it just means the programme wont take any new applications. It says our application is under consideration, so Im assuming it is. Also, I sent my application in the day the Global Politics course closed (2nd choice) and it just instantly said application can't be considered - it hasn't said that now about IR, and that's a good sign. Only worry is there must only be a couple of places left now, and my application isn't the strongest!

    Curses and Blast!

    Just got rejected for the Msc IR (Research), and my 2nd choice was already closed so I didn't even get considered for that.

    My 1st choice was under consideration for a few weeks, so it looks like I was actually rejected, not that they closed before I had a chance. I did, however, apply in February, which is pretty late in the day for this course, methinks.

    Two things:

    1)Given that I have a first in History from a good university and three years' experience overseas (two in Japan and one in Italy), anyone know if it would be worth reactivating my application for next year? Are early applications more likely to be accepted?

    2)The MSc International Relations Theory is still listed as 'open'. Would it be worth applying for that for this year?

    Any advice would be great!

    Hey justsomeguy,

    Sorry about the IR decision, but it may be worth it to apply early next year. Since Lse uses rolling admissions, early applicants have an advantage when applying ( Lse explicitly states this on their website). The IR theory option entirely depends on you - do you want to wait a year and try to apply early for a program you whole heartedly want to do or does the theory course sufficiently cover your interests and goals? I'm not familiar with the courses, but there may be course options in the theory program that overlap with the IR program, which may allow you to study the things you wouldve wanted to under the IR program.

    A few questions about your app: did you check your status yesterday after the course availability for IR closed? Was it still under consideration? Did your status change today (3/24)? I'm under consideration for IPE and trying to divine the IR dept's decision process. Just really nervous since it closed yesterday.

    Cheers

    I called Admissions today and they said my app is still being considered. I think decisions are going to be made very soon since it's closed. Fingers crossed...

    Yeah, I called them earlier today and they told me the same thing! But I just checked my application status an hour ago and it had changed to "A decision has been made..."
    I'm trying not to get too excited
