    Hi everyone!

    I applied for law LLB on 13th January and got two e-mails, both two weeks instead of eight or four? The second one came yesterday, should I be worried? I`m an international applicant as well. :/

    Haha yeah, we're not alone. I have a few friends applying for this course as well and still haven't heard anything other than the emails (part from one who got an offer back in Nov). I'm second week into the 4 weeks.. They're killing me slowly

    I received my rejection for Maths AND Economics this morning (Slightly different course). At AS Level I had 5As: Maths (A) Further Maths (A) Economics (A) Religious Studies (A) Physics (A) with a 96.5 UMS Average (Out of 100) across them. Additionally, I had a strong Personal Statement and a variety of academic/non-academic achievements. So yes, it is very competitive. I wish you the best of luck.

    Hello.

    I am new to this forum but I really really need HELP!

    I hold offers from Oxford University for PPE and from LSE for Philosophy and Economics and I am having trouble to decide which one of them to select as my firm choice.

    My school teachers are pushing me towards Oxford I think because it will look good for Ofsted and I feel like I have gone through a lot of trouble (TSA, interviews, etc) only for Oxford. Also when I was there the town felt enchanted.

    But I feel that my heart lies with LSE. These are my reasons:

    -The job prospects seem to be much better - the course, despite lacking compulsory politics, looks more interesting and applicable to today.
    -Despite Oxford's magical aura, I think London may be more advantageous at the end of the day - there is more to do on a daily basis and I can find a job more easily, both during my studies if I need to and afterwards.
    -Also I feel that LSE will provide me with a better student experience. Oxford's education from what I heard is overwhelming and you do not have time to enjoy yourself during your studies. The traditional aspect of Oxford (formal hall etc) looks appealing but I have been told that this is only interesting in the beginning.
    -The reputation of LSE is improving and of Oxford diminishing slowly from what I can see. I want to be ahead in life and so maybe LSE will be better for this.

    As you can see, I personally prefer LSE but I am having trouble declining Oxford because of the "excitement" created around it. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much.

    Martin
    Oxford PPE is the passport to power. A lot of the big names in British Politics have studied it - the incumbent Prime Minister is just one example. Ultimately, it is your decision to make however.

    If it were up to me, despite acknowledging that the Oxford course is perhaps slightly more reputable, I would pick LSE - but only because my dad is a Cambridge alumnus and I've developed a strong aversion to Ox***d!!!

    Well done on receiving your offers, and good luck!
