    Do I need to have Accounting and Finance 50/50 in my PS or is it okay if I primarily talk about Fianance? I was reading on LSE's page and they said the ones with joint degrees they want balance but I am honestly not too sure I can talk about Accounting as much as Finance as I never did it at A-levels etc.

    Anyone care to shed some light? How did you guys balance your personal statements?

    I personally haven't balanced mines (Law with French) because law was the primary focus of mines. Personally I would say it's okay not to have complete balance but I guess it depends on the individual universities.
