    If you got to choose between UCL and Warwick for Economics, which one would you go to ?? (I'm really lost, as I am an international student, I can't really get to know the campus or city life ... )

    I still haven't heard from LSE, but I don't really think I will get an offer so I'm basically hesitating between these two

    UCL. I read Econ there last year (not for me personally, I've applied for History this year) and it's a very good course. The maths content is excellent.

    Which is harder to get into, Government and Econ, or straight Econ?
    It's nearly the same like for straight econ your average applicants per place is 14, with about 2800 applicants for some 215 places while g&e has about 15, for 600 applicants for about 40 spots.

    Universities look at both attainment as well as potential. If attainment has been affected by circumstances and potential can be demonstrated then the past should not be held against you. But bear in mind that LSE is a super competitive university.
    Well the rest of my marks were in the 90s in high school and am on the Dean's list in University with a 3.87 GPA. I just don't want them to look back at high school and see that one mark that brought down my GPA by a lot and decide based on that.

    Mate we're not admissions' officers, we have no idea what each person reading your application will be looking for. So much of it is luck (how many people have a similar profile to yours, how the admissions' officer liked your PS, if he/she got enough sleep, if he got in a fight with his or her partner the night before).

    You did the best you could and hopefully for you it will pay off!

    They are pretty much the same, course-wise reputation, research, employment etc.

    I'd go for Warwick as UCL open day didn't give off the best impression.

    So why UCL over Warwick? Other than the London factor as the guy didn't have a preference for either location.

    Not sure what you mean. LSE seems to do offers & rejections almost exclusively on Thu/Fri. Whether other universities follow a similar policy is unknown to us.
