I am an offer holder for next year but I can't accept my offer until the end of the month, which means I can't be offered accommodation until then. Will the LSE dorms have filled up then? I'd rather not have to end up in the university of London dorms instead
There was a discussion about this on the LSE offer holders FB page. As long as you do not insure LSE, then you should get an accommodation offer in the time they specified. Multiple people have had acommodation offers before they firmed.

What do you think about High Holborn? I heard there are too many Middle Eastern/Indian students there. Is that true?

I'm worried about no having further maths to A2. I'm doing as biology chemistry maths and economics. Next year I will do A2 chemistry, maths, economics and AS Fmaths. I got 12A*s and 1A at gcse. Do you think not having Fmaths will put me at a disadvantage. I want to apply to business maths and statistics and they say 'further maths is highly desirable'. Does this mean I wouldn't get an offer because I won't be doing A2 further maths?

Has basically everyone there done Fmaths A2 for the courses which it would be relevant for?

I have firmed an offer for BMS and am doing A2 Further Maths. If you want to apply for BMS why aren't you going to take FM?

Not sure that your GCSEs results will have that much bearing on the decision although they might work in a tie breaker. It will be your PS that determines if you get an offer or not.

Are all the unconditional offer holders the people who have already done and got results for their A2s?

Hello AQUF42,

In terms of your two requirements:
Roseberry would be your cheapest option if you could get a 38 week contract. Also Rosebery is about a 25 min walk from LSE.
High Holborn is closest to LSE but it is the most expensive and it tends to be quite international so this depends on whether your son is British or international.
Bankside is very sociable and is where I stay now. It is cheaper than High Holborn but more expensive than Rosebery. I would personally choose Bankside because it hasn't let me down yet and its nicer than Rosebery where I have stayed before.


Do you agree with what Fleur (The blonde) said about LSE?

I thought I was going to apply for medicine and they often don't count FM separately to maths for medicine. Isn't it too late for me to do A2 further maths now as I'm nearly at the end of of year 12 and I've only done the modules for AS 'normal' maths

Really? LSE told me that they didn't typically do it until the offer was firmed

Hi,
I am from kolkata,India.
I am planning on applying to LSE for masters in international management.
My questions are:
1. Does summer schooling in SMU help improve the CV?
2. From 1, or does an internship help? If it does, then doing it abroad would give me an edge?
3. How is the course of international management?
Thankyou in advance.

Hi, is it possible to switch from a 38week contract, which I've been offered at Roseberry, to a 30 week? Also is it possible to change from History to a course like econ history with economics? Can history make you competitive for city jobs or is a switch advisable?

Thankyou

Hi there!

I have a enquiry about the UCAS personal statement.

I am in a unique situation because due to my national service (NS) in Singapore, I have two opportunities to apply for UK universities, once in my first year of NS and another in my second.

As such, for my first try, I was thinking of not applying for any safety schools since I would not accept the safety school offers anyway.

My options were going to be as such:
Cambridge // LSE Econs // LSE Math and Econs // UCL Econs // UCL Econs and Stats

I have gotten 44 points for my IB exams (with a 7 in math) so my grades should be good enough. The issue is the personal statement.

I have heard that UCL Econs and UCL Econs and Stats are rather similar courses, so writing a personal statement catering to Economics should be sufficient for both courses.

However, seeing that admission to LSE depends heavily on your personal statement, I have been advised against applying for both Econs and Math and Econs at LSE. I have been told that LSE really wants you to cater your application towards one focused course, and it is stupid to apply for both courses as they are not that similar. As such, my questions are:

1) Are LSE Econs and LSE Math and Econs really so different? How difficult is it to write a personal statement that caters to both?

2) Is it true that the schools under UOL such as UCL, LSE are able to see your applications to their different schools? Does that disadvantage me?

3) Is it unwise to apply two courses at the same university like I have? Will the department receive the two applications independently or together?

4) Is it possible that they could reject me from both just because I have applied for both two courses at the same university? Or will that not be a problem and could I very well receive two offers form the same university?

5) After doing my research, the closest course to LSE Econs that I could find within LSE was LSE Math and Econs. Is there any closer degree to Econs within LSE that I missed out on?

Thanks so much!

Really? Where have you seen all these reviews? I have just accepted my offer for Sidney Webb. From what I have seen from the website it looks quite alright. In York (where I currently study) I am sharing a kitchen with 15 people and it works out just fine.
Here. Just use the search option. Some people quite pissed off with Sidney Webb. Don't know why but made me worried.

How hard is it to find a part-time job/paid internship? Where should I look aside from the LSE employment pages and http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/Part-Time_Work? I'm an international student (American), so I hope that's not a disadvantage. I know London is extremely expensive, so I want to have enough money to survive there.

Nothing conclusive, but I've heard from one person who lives there and he enjoys it.
The rest is just TSR I suppose.
