Discussion about Uni Offers 2009

Recommended Posts

Since we want to keep the other thread clean, I guess we can discuss the university offers in this thread?

I was just wondering what are typical offers from Warwick and UCL for economics/management?

LSE rejected me today. I was wondering, whether anyone else got rejected today. I applied for a course that recommended HL Math and I had SL Math. Another friend of mine, who also applied for (another) a course that desired HL Math got rejected on the same date. They might've gone through all the people with SL Math and just declined them in that case...

Yeah, they scored me out too, but that was expected since I was way below what I actually needed to get in.

My friend had HL maths, predicted 7 in it, with 39 points overall. He got rejected from LSE for accounting and also for economics.

When are the LSE offers for law and other courses out? Soon?

LSE says that it takes them approximately 3 months to process an application. However, they also said that since the end of October they have kept making some decisions every week. And they have a couple of rounds. First one general where those clearly not meeting the conditions are rejected, then they go to more specialised people who make some offers for people who they want certainly, reject some and keep the rest for further comparison and evaluation.

Uh oh, LSE has been going around and going through the applications now? I haven't heard from them (except that they got my application) but I'm quite nervous. I do want to get in, but does anytone know what they expect from International History? Other than the 666 at higher level and 37. I've got History and Economics at higher level so hopefully it's something they want.

Since the person works in our school's university guidance knows some people form LSE and UCL, so both school have a talk with the students in our school , UCL told us that to do apply for economics, they require 36 points (min) and higher level math 6, LSE told us that to do apply for economics, they require 36 points (min) and higher level math 7, I think thats why even deissi have 43 ib points, they still don't let him in, but both school says that they do not require us to take economics in IB, but they said it would help.

The course you're referring to is L101 Economics, the most highly competitive course existing at LSE for which HL Maths is a necessity. In fact, most good universities that offer Economics need a decent score in HL Maths.

Deissi applied for Accounting and Finance by the way, not Economics.

Thank you for your request for feedback on your application to LSE, dated 18 November 2008.

The feedback we have received from the Admissions Tutor indicates that your application was unsuccessful as you have not fully justified your interest in the Accounting and Finance course. Applicants for the combined honours programmes are expected to address all aspects of the course in their personal statement and the Admissions Tutor felt that you did not demonstrate sufficient interest in accounting in your personal statement.

I emailed for the reason for my rejection, and I must say, their reasoning makes sense. I spoke very little about accounting, since my other choices are Land Economy and Financial Economics. I can't say that I'm disappointed because I know that talking about accounting would have killed my Cambridge app. In fact, I wish I hadn't even mentioned it. :P

Yup, I got one yesterday to Christ's College History. Also got an offer to King's College London, conditional with 38 points and 666 at highers. Considering that it is ranked the 3rd in history by Times' Good University Guide (Oxford only 4th) I'm pretty happy.

Anyone got a interview request to cambridge yet?

My friend did actually. She applied to study Literature, and her interview is on the 10th of December. She's reading all these philosophical books now so she will have something to talk about with the interviewers. I think she was predicted a 43, and might actually get in since both her parents went there (if that actually counts for anything).

Yeah I'm also starting to prepare for my interviews in Cambridge. I'm reading through a couple of books I mentioned in my personal statement and on the topics I said i have been interested in (also sent my essays related to those topics there). I have to say that I am sort of looking forward to the interview even if I don't get in, because the chance to get to speak with such experts in their field is great. But I can also imagine that I will be damn nervous there, although I think the interview is my strong point.
