    I don't like that it's a four year program. However LSE is always LSE ahahah

    Well, they're both recent, infact UCL started the degree last year..

    Where else have you applied if you don't mind me asking?

    I would probably go for LSE (even if I saw the course structure and it doesn't really appeal to me)

    However the problem of LSE and UCL's PPE degree is that they are new courses and therefore may not be very well organized as others (Oxford, Warwick, York...)

    Actually I was admitted into Warwick's PPE program... How do you think it lives up to UCL's?
    UCL is quite prestigious and obviously has the added benefit of being in London, but Warwick's program is tried and tested and the university has an excellent reputation for economics. So in the very unlikely event that I get accepted, I have no idea what I would choose between the two.

    When it comes to LSE, I got rejected so my opinion doesn't really matter much haha... but I do agree that four years always felt a little long to me.

    As you said Warwick PPE program is very famous (I d say the best after Oxford) and well organised !

    The course at UCL for example doesn't even offer exchanges... I applied to UCL too and I don't know what I would do in this situation

    I applied to Oxford (Interview, Rejection), LSE (offer), UCL (offer), Warwick (no reply yet), Edinburgh (no reply yet)

    I strongly favour LSE though. Yes, the 4 year programme seems very long, but I like the idea of doing a capstone project and applications in the last year. This might actually make me more attractive to employers afterwards, I guess.

    I would go to UCL, although the course in Warwick is most likely better organised. Do you have an UCL offer?? If costs are not a problem for you, i would pick UCL

    No I didn't actually and I sent it on the 15th of October😩

    I think it means they re assessing your application! Did your status change?
