    It's the unwritten rule of LSE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovmHfMKHuY8
    I love how they label it a 'problem', great banter though, the c1 100ums cracks me up every time lol

    Ok. For future references it would've been better if you started a new thread on this, to get more rational responses, rather than post it on the "LSE entry 2015" thread where most peeps would obvs be biased, being Oxford rejects and all.
    Lol, who cares if we're oxbridge rejects, I personally think LSE is on a par and did so before my cambridge application although my thoughts would be that oxbridge is once in a lifetime opportunity and despite the London advantages of lse, everyone gets the chance to live in London. Nothing worse than oxbridge students getting all high and mighty when they're assessed on different (but arguably more important) criteria to London applicants

    That's why I also posted it in the Oxford thread - I thought I'll get more responses this way! And to be honest the responses I got on there were of more or less the same tone, there even were some people with the same dilemma.

    Don't let the people on here who think Oxbridge is the meaning of life steer your judgement. I don't think you will be that much if any disadvantage picking LSE over Oxford.
    Yes, everyone knows Oxbridge is a good school academically but believe it or not, some people actually do value things aside academia such as university life and if that means rejecting Oxbridge, so be it.
    Nothing worse than people who bought into the indoctrination that Oxbridge is the best two unis in the uk. If people had an open mind they'd realise there are unis on a par with them

    Erm... What does that have to do with anything? .

    Yet it's perfectly fine when LSE students get all high and mighty given the attitude towards Oxford PPE on this thread? It was a reasonable suggestion that these questions shouldn't be posted on either of the universities pages, for obvious reasons, get a grip.
    Woaahh, currently gripping hard. Tbf I don't really care and if you'd remember, I was supportive of your comments about Oxford ppe. But it's your assumption that all lse prospectives on this thread must be butthurt about getting Oxbridge rejections that, in combination with your display name, sums up the mentality of people as soon as they get accepted into Oxbridge for me. No offence lol

    I never said all. That's rich considering how you were all so quick to big up the uni yet get so defensive when challenged. My display name was there two years before I applied so that failed :lol:. None taken .

    Well fair enough hahaha! It's was worth a call out attempt nah in all seriousness, I do agree that some people on here are a bit too 'lse>' but I personally would go for Oxbridge every time just for the different life experience but lbh, if you're going Oxbridge, lse or ucl/Warwick - you're gonna be getting a golden ticket to the chocolate factory - lots of overthinking on TSR

    Who is actually doing this? I've yet to see it. Stop trying to bait people, and stop making excuses to annoy people in this thread. Really tiresome now.

    If I've read right you're already a student at Camb, so god knows why you're posting in an LSE applicants thread...

    This convo died 3 hours ago yet you felt to bring it up...look at the past 5-10 pages, I'm not the only one who noticed it either^. Yh well people are always gonna get annoyed when someone disagrees with their view, OP asked a question to which I answered.

    Doesn't matter, I've been through the LSE process, so my previous contribution on admissions were valid. Calm yourself.

    Hi! I am an offer holder for Bsc International Relations (L250). Uhh... I got 4A*s, 5As and 2Bs at GCSE

    2As in Geography and Critical Thinking (I don't know if that A really counts though lol), a B in Government and Politics, a C in English Lit and a D in Economics in AS. I have a few resits to do, what can I say

    I think my personal statement was pretty strong, and I'm predicted an A* in Geog, an A in English Lit and a B in Gov. and Politics. Yeah, that's right, an odd combo of A*AB predicted grades (worked for me in the end though).

    The offer I received was the standard AAA.

    To receive an offer for IR at LSE with ABCD at AS? Sounds legit!

    This is sarcasm, yes. I'm not claiming that you couldn't have received the offer, but to me it seems extremely unlikely. Especially considering that IR is THE most competitive course at LSE, one of the most competitive universities in the world. If you really did - then this is simply amazing and you must have written one killer personal statement.
