    Which one would you guys rather go for, Bsc economics at LSE or BA Econ at cambridge. Specifically for a career in IB

    Lse is in London = more IB visits, everyone at lse want to go into IB = you learn more about it and the competition amongst your peers brings the best out of you. Cambridge is just as good but it simply isn't in London and not as many people will want to go into IB

    Yeah I went at around the same time, I felt sorry for the guy trying to encourage us to choose them over cambridge and LSE aha, you must've impressed them in the interviews because they usually want some kind of further maths just glad all the waiting is over though ngl

    We probably were there together then, since I think that was the only one in November . I was so surprised when I got the offer, especially as the I thought I'd done really badly in the interviews (I got a question on stunted child growth in victorian Britain and game theory :cool:. Congrats on getting into Christ's though, that's insanely good!!

    I've done some research and going on linked in is a great place for research ! It lists the top schools for IB based on the success of recent graduates getting a desirable job in IB (bulge bracket and other top banks) and the rankings are as follows;
    1) LSE
    2) UCL
    3) Cambridge
    4) Oxford
    5) Warwick
    6) Durham
    7) Manchester
    8) Nottingham
    9) bath
    10) Bristol

    I probably will but living in london would be great. Hopefully I could do a masters at LSE or UCL down the road.

    Yeah living in London is probably better when you aren't a student though imo

    I'm in such an awkward situation, I got 10A*s and 2 As at GCSE then flopped at AS and got ABBB. Still predicted 3 A*s tho (+ A* in Welsh Bac) but I dunno if I should accept an offer from UCL (in the highly unlikely event that I even get one from them) or take a gap year and apply to Cambridge/LSE with (hopefully) all A*s in hand? What would you guys do?

    Has anyone heard from LSE yet? I applied in October and then they told me 8 weeks, then 2 then 4 weeks. Is that normal?

    If you get UCL, I'd defo take it. Gap year is not worth it just for the small chance you'll get an LSE/Cambridge offer - also the gap between them and UCL is not big enough to warrant a gap year IMO

    I currently have UCL and got rejected by cambridge yesterday and am still waiting on LSE. Personally, if I don't get LSE I will go to UCL rather than reapply because UCL is the only uni for economics that can compete with camb/LSE imo. Eg. A 1st from ucl>2:1 from camb/lse
