    Got my unconditional offer for Law last week. I was thinking of applying High Holbourne, Urban Westminster (however I am afraid that urban will be completely antisocial) what do you guys think? Also any statistics regarding like the kind of students at each accomm, my friend who lives in a flat with only chinese people says he's been segregated completely so I wouldn't that to be the case at Urban.

    I applied for philosophy, logic&scientific method, and yes I firmed LSE last week and insured Warwick
    Woohoo I have not had the chance to firm LSE yet, still waiting for UCL but I have decided that LSE is my firm. Wondering if I should withdraw from UCL haha, worrying that all the available spaces in my first choices will just be gone by the time UCL give me an answer

    The key is to do the readings and turn up, it sounds stupid but there is very little short-term incentive to do so. Also, read over what you learnt in lectures or it will go in one ear and out the other.

    I joined Econ Soc, Conservative society, RAG, United Nations and a couple of others. They are good, great for socialising and most societies just go to the pub - never a problem!

    The social life is good, and is what you make of it. I live in quite social halls (Bankside) and most nights there are people going out etc. There aren't many cliques, only between East Asian students.
    Are there many in the conservative society? I want to join in September but worried it won't have much of a following since LSE is so left wing :/

    You are speaking to a Tory Society member!

    It has many members, mostly economists and has very good guest speakers (conservative MPs, MEPs, and peers!). You should definitely join.

    Joining as well - didn't imagine that that would exist at LSE (of all places), but I'm glad to see that it does :P

    I think its first come first served for the ones that are private and the Uni simply contracts out to them e.g. King's Cross, Urbanest Westminster (or whatever it's called), while all the rest are random. At least that is what the website said.

    I would love to join too! I'm a bit scared that we'll be looked down upon due to the political sway of LSE😕

    Ye, that was probably me, I inferred it from the fact that Hallpad opened two weeks ago on a Thursday, and that they said that they would do lotteries every two weeks after that

    Hey everyone! I got an offer for BSc economics this morning (and have met the offer). Do I apply for accommodation only when I get my offer letter? I live in NZ, so its probably going to be quite a while until then.

    Congrats.

    you don't need to wait for the offer letter. You need to apply via LSE Hallpad and you will need the student id which should be in the LSE email. But i think you need to firm the offer via UCAS before you complete Hallpad.

    More details in the offerholders guide which can get online on the LSE website.
    They will send a copy with the offer letter.

    Hey everybody Got an offer for sociology and starting to think about accommodation. I live just outside London so I know it fairly well but I was wondering what halls of accommodation are the most social, and whether you've heard it's better to go intercollegiate? Thanks!

    Congratulations on your offer No personal experience as I am a fellow applicant but I've been reading through the forum to find out myself. I think the general trend is that the smaller halls are the most social as everyone tends to get to know each other, they are carr saunders, rosebery and passfield, added bonus is they are also the cheapest.
