No relevant work experience (unrelated charity work and internship), predicted 1st class from an average UK university, (I guess) strong LOR's. Personal statement was tailored for the 1st choice but apparently was good enough for this course too :D

  • Waited 13 weeks and received a rejection - so the idea that them making you wait this long means it's an acceptance is not true. Waiting for my second option now.

  • To the poster asking about LSE. I am 26 with an engineering undergrad from one of the best universities in my country. Some relevant coursework there can include computational math and programming courses, in which I did well. Then, worked two years outside US in an economics research lab, focused on development economics. Later, got accepted for an RA position at a top 5 econ. dept in US. Took 2 pure math and 2 intermediate econ courses in the university and did well. Very strong letters of recommendation.
