Dear London School of Economics,
I would like to know the statistics for the reserve list for the MSc in Regulation in LSE for the years 19/20 or, if data for this period is unavailable, for the years 18/19.
Specifically, I would like to know the number of applicants who were in a reserve list and then the number of those that subsequently received a conditional or unconditional offer.
Thank you for your email. As you will appreciate, information requests
place additional demands on the School in terms of costs and staff time.
At present we are having to prioritise our finite resources in order to
meet the unprecedented challenges we are facing during the Coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic. As such, we need to advise you that while we will
continue to process individual requests, you may experience some delay in
our response during the current pandemic.
Further to your recent FoI request, the Schools response is provided
o In 2019/0 there were 5 people who were put on the reserve list. None
of them were made offers in that year and none of them reinstated for
that programme this year.
o In 2018/9 there were 7 people who were put on the reserve list. None
of them were made offers in that year, but all four of those who
reinstated were made offers in the following year.
If you think that the information provided does not meet your request,
contact Rachael Maguire on 020 7849 4622 or write to Louise Nadal, School
Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton
Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request
and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the
Information Commissioner's Office http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they
expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint
