Ricardo Mellado Labbé

Dear London School of Economics,

I would like to know the statistics for waiting list for every master program in LSE for the years 17/18 or, if data of these period is not available, for years 16/17. Specifically, I would like to know the number of application who were in waiting list and then receive a conditional or unconditional offer. In other words, I would like to know the proportion between total waiting list and waiting list who recieve further proposal.

Yours faithfully,

Ricardo Mellado Labbé
