    people withdrawing their applications are just impatient unless they are an offer holder of a uni they deem to be on a par/same desire to go to. it's irrational

    Even then I'd still wait as it's a solid insurance

    exactly, I don't see why people aren't just waiting for the outcome of their application - otherwise they needn't have bothered applying, also seems lots of people are doing this with their 1st choice, bonkers

    Oh right cool, I haven't seen the Notts campus yet but I heard it's great but the City itself isn't as good? I also like the accounting modules that Bristol have to offer, do you know whether the accounting and finance modules involve a lot of maths?

    I just received offers from LSE and Imperial and I am pretty confused with the choice between these two institutions.

    LSE
    Program: MSc in Econometrics and Mathematical Economics
    Tuition fees: £24456
    Number of courses: 6 (dissertation included)
    Size: approximate 20 students

    Imperial College Business School
    Program: MSc in Economics and Strategy for Business
    Tuition fees: £24000
    Number of courses: 18
    Size: approximate 180 students

    Here is some basic information about these two programs. Could anyone give me some advice? Such as the reputation, teaching quality and graduate prospect. Many thanks!

    LSE hands down. For Economics, with regards to the reputation, teaching quality and graduate prospects, LSE is unchallenged - for a Msc even more so.

    I think it'd be:
    Cambridge
    LSE
    Oxford
    Warwick
    UCL

    What does everyone else think?

    My point still stands. The fact that you only need an A in GCSE Maths means the starting level must be pretty basic.



    And Bristol is ranked 7th so the difference is negligible. It is irrational to pick a uni based on something trivial like rankings which fluctuate year on year.
    I'd agree.I'd say Manchester's course is pretty good too(according to the QS rankings)Bath/Bristol/Notts are pretty similar

    Statistically, LSE is the most difficult, then Cambridge, oxford, UCL and Warwick
