Dear London School of Economics,

I would like to know whether an application submitted to LSE will be negatively looked upon due to the candidate declining an offer in a previous admissions cycle. Can the admissions officers who look at your application see that you have declined an offer in the past? I would also like to know whether this differs between departments.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Smith

Dear GLPD.Info.Rights,

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/g...

How come reapplicants only had a 33% success rate when reapplying in the linked FOI request? That seems quite low for people who have previously secured an offer. Is this just a coincidence?

Yours sincerely,

Alex Smith
