    I applied to LSE Law and Anthropology in 2016 but I was rejected on the basis of my personal statement, and I didn't particularly write it for Law so i understand why they would reject me but i still really want to go to that course and i got the required grades and everything so if reapplied and wrote a PS that was more suitable to that course I think i have quite a good chance of being accepted.
    However, this year i didn't want to be left without a place if my plan doesn't work out so i will be going to Kings to study Religion, Politics and Society. Is it worth reapplying to LSE if I want to go into Law?
    I already know that they don't allow people to transfer straight to second year so I know that I will have to study for a year longer than I initially planned but I don't particularly think that's a problem because in the grand scheme of things going to uni for a year longer wont matter when I start working, especially since I'd have a chance of graduating from a better uni.
    I also feel like if i wanted to go to postgraduate in another country LSE is more internationally recognised but I also know that Kings isn't THAT much lower on league tables than LSE.
    So is it worth at all reapplying while I study at Kings?
    I don't mind writing a new PS or trying to get a new recommendation from my lecturers and I understand that I might not be able to ask for advice from my tutor the first month I'm there but that's beside my question :P
