  1. Can claim IHEID acceptance. Will be declining of course.
  2. Probably gauging people’s interest to cut down the waitlist even more. Wouldn’t read too much into it at this point sadly.
  3. It doesn't hurt to ask, particularly if you can mention other funding offers you have that top theirs (if you have). Otherwise, do not be worried about not having studied in the US that much (depending on which institutions you have studied at/will study at). I've never studied in the US before and still had a decent cycle all things considered. edit for typo
  4. I declined my interview offer, but I have friends who have gone through interviews and got offers last year if you want to reach out
  5. Nothing sorry. For some reason I think most unis only give statistics in rejections.
  6. I can't remember if someone claimed it on here. I feel like I saw one. But I know someone else who got his offer just a few days ago (informally).
  7. Thank you! They said decisions would come throughout February so I can't say what to expect honestly. I received my decision weeks ago, informally from my POI.
  8. Thank you! I truly appreciate you all taking my best interests into account! I have indeed made up my mind about USC based largely on my experience with its faculty, which seems much more collaborative and supportive which is of utmost importance to me.
  9. Also got a rejection from Cornell! I also added my stats etc. to the thread I created for results
  10. I have accepted an offer despite pending decisions because I feel confident in my decision. PROFILE: Type of Undergrad Institution: Public EU Uni Major(s)/Minor(s): Law Undergrad GPA: 3.7, with honours Type of Grad: Top 3 UK Grad GPA: Distinction, equivalent to 4.0 GRE: N/A Any Special Courses: Stats with R, Quant Analysis Letters of Recommendation: 2 tenured profs, 1 associate prof - all know me very well and I took courses and conducted research with them Teaching Experience: N/A Research Experience: 3+ years RA experience, several
  11. There are if you put yourself out there and directly ask professors etc. People who take initiative get the most out of LSE.
  12. Keep your hopes up!! My program was 450+ applicants with around 40 offers and I still got an offer with an upper second undergrad
  13. Thank you!! I completely understand the expense issue. I think if you get a Distinction in your degree and dissertation and make an excellent impression on professors, it could make up for the lack of name brand recognition to some extent. I want to say ‘for sure’, but I don’t know how all ad coms will look at it. What I can tell you is that I was told by people on the ad coms where I got in that several professors on the committees advocated for my acceptance given the name brand recognition of my alma mater - they immediately knew the high caliber research and training I would’ve done/gotten
