Thanks a ton. Also if you are asking him can you also ask him will it be comfortable living on the ground floor. Someone had told me the rooms on the ground floor may be noisy and they are not well lit. He is the best person who'll know exactly. The guy there is convincing me that the room is brilliant and its a larger room which is sold at higher prices on higher floors. Since I'm going to be studying Msc in Economics at LSE, I know its gonna be a hectic course. For me the most important thing is a peaceful environment. Also, I'm just not a party person.lol. The basement at Therese has a common room where I believe they have frequent parties (I'm not sure though) so it may be noisy on the ground floor. I'm a little stressed with my accommodation thing so I may be talking a lot of rubbish,lol, sorry. Thanks for all the replies, its really helping me a lot.
Hey Im new at TSR. Did you get my message that I inboxed you and thanks a ton for the reply.
It's been v kind of you replying x
Thankyou so much!! That was really helpful
I don't really know what to say as you've answered all my questions very well! Haha. I've done some thread-searching on here, and it turns out Rosebery and Carr-Saunders DO have kitchens, but basic ones without ovens, which sounds perfectly fine for me (although I can't bake! but hey, minor issue..), and they're quite a lot cheaper than HH so I'd apply for either of those.. IF I choose LSE.. haha I'm still not sure.
I have another question Where do people tend to move to in their 2nd and 3rd years; generally are places far away and expensive? I suppose this is a problem you may be considering now and (I'd hope) you've been given more information about this than I.
I've read that the sports at LSE aren't very good, however there seems to be quite a lot available.. do you know much about this?
Do you find that the general LSE area is very touristy and kindof stressful to be in? I suppose people just get used to that aspect of London..?
Also, as LSE is purely a social sciences uni, do you find the people kindof 'samey' or is it easy to mix with students from all the other, nearby, universities as well?
Haha well done on your late-night essay.. I've been there too :P
I think that's everything I had on my mind, thanks again! x
Hiya, I noticed that you study at LSE and was just wondering if you find the cost of living in London manageable? I'm holding an offer for Environment and Development at LSE and that's the main thing that's putting me off the uni at the moment. Thanks
Hello, I thought I'd take you up on your kind offer and ask a few more questions! I hope that's okay, even a brief answer would be massively appreciated.
What do you think of LSE's PP course? It does seem very intense with the philosophy of science, and I admit I would try to avoid that.. I'm much more into existentialism and stuff; freewill and society and morality, not scientific methods. It's a slight worry.
What do you plan on doing after your course, if I may ask? :P
Do you know anybody that is failing terribly, and do you think a bad degree from LSE (like a 2:2 or a 3rd even) would still be worth anything? I'm not confident about my academic ability; I am from a small seaside town and merely study Religious Studies (which is philosophy and ethics really), History and Art at A Level. I'm not even a philosophy or a politics fanatic, I ought to do some reading really. I mean, it massively interests me, but I'm worried I'd get completely left behind at LSE. I get distracted easily and I'm very last-minute. These are both flaws for serious study, I'm aware.
Do many people have part time jobs? And (slightly rhetorical question) why do none of the undergraduate halls have KITCHENS?! I want an oven not just a microwave, what's the deal? Haha. Do you live in a hall? How're you finding it? Do you have to go home for holidays?
Do you often go out to gigs and stuff in London, doing things totally unconnected to the university? I'm really into reggae and dubstep, I don't want to be alone there.
Strange question but I can't help but ask, do people at LSE generally frown upon drugs? I know they're bad and everything but I can't imagine being in a circle of people who don't have the odd joint or something. Feel free to frown upon me, it might just be a small-town mentality thing.
Thanks a lot I know I've asked a lot! x
I'm currently a first year university student in Canada (Vancouver) and I just received an offer from LSE Politics and Philosophy. In Vancouver, I'd be studying economics - we do not have a great politics/philosophy department. My end goal is law school back in Canada or in the US.
I have a lot of questions, if you could even answer one that would make my day.
1. How is the teaching? I've heard 100% negative reviews here. I love UBC (my school) because its professors are truly excellent.
2. How are the grades/coursework level? I am getting excellent grades at UBC, I do not want to sacrifice my A average here for a middle-of-class at LSE.
3. Do you know what jobs people in your course usually end up with? Where do they go in life? Are there internship/job opportunities at the undergrad level for those in your course? Do many end up going to law school?
4. Is it easy to make friends there?
Thank you so much. I have so many hesitations about going, I'm truly 50/50 right now. The only pull for me is living in London (of course) and LSE's reputation, but these are significant. My family and friends are all in Vancouver!
Thank you for this information. I was quite shocked at first to find my application incompatible with the academic requirements of the course I applied to. I did contact the admissions office and they told me that ap Calculus AB itself is enough. So I don't need to spend all of senior year second semester studying Calc. YAY.
but as for getting in, i am still worried. Could you chance me based on your knowledge of how competitive LSE admissions is?
My grades are 7 seven aps all 5s in APUSH, AP World, AP Lang, AP Mac/Mic Econ, AP Calc AB, and AP Chinese.
My predicted grades are four 5s in Ap Physics C, Ap comparative gov, Ap us. gov, and Ap stats.
You responded to one of my threads about turning in AP scores. I turned in my AP scores which met all conditions of my offer. When do UK schools send out confirmation papers? When should I apply for my visa and such and such/
Thank you very much!
Where I study
London School of Economics
