  • I had very good grades (currently studying PPE in Italy), two work experiences, and two exchange programs (one during high school, one during university). I guessed what really made the difference though was the Personal Statement, as I'm pretty sure everybody applying to LSE has good grades etc. I applied on March 1, received my personal ID on March 15, and I was accepted on April 1. Weirdly enough I saw I was made an offer on LSE4U but did not receive an email yet. I'm not the first one experiencing this problem.
