    Do you think there would be any point in emailing lse about whether I could apply for their ppe course? I wanted to originally but then opted not to and although I have 3 offers so far and am still waiting for one more I was wondering if I could just try my luck at lse?

    It appears that you are serious, or perhaps just taking the Michael?

    Do you think that any University would accept an email application from you almost 7 weeks after the Ucas deadline, let alone LSE, the 3rd best Uni in the country?

    For the purposes of ego stroking, can we refrain from calling lse the 3rd best uni in the country? Lets call it the UK's best social science school, or economics and pol sci world leader.

    Best social science faculty in the word, 2nd only to Harvard (this part is not compulsory to mention), sounds more fitting, don't you think?

    Very well said. Re: Accomodation my son has applied to Bankside and as we live in London it is going to be hard to get what he needs. Hopefully this settles the argument between LSE and rest of the unis.


    (Original post by tomixox)
    I completely agree! After much deliberation and research I think I will land up firming LSE. I don't know about your son but I also applied for Oxford and if I was not rejected post-interview, I most definitely would have firmed it. LSE in fact is stronger for economics than Oxford and being in central London you are almost guaranteed to have a MUCH better social life than when at Oxford! I spoke to a boy that used to go to my school and is now at LSE and he said:
    I think LSE does perhaps have that reputation (poor student/social life) a bit, but I think it depends how you approach it really. There will always be kids (such as my roommate) who are here for the degree and nothing more, but there's a decent social scene as well. Not to blow our own trumpet or anything, but LSE recently came top in a Which survey of most diverse student nightlife in the country. I know people at UCL and I'd say we have just as much fun as them....but I guess you have to take whatever I say with a slight pinch of salt as the LSE/UCL rivalry is pretty fierce. Also I'd say that it depends which halls you choose, I know that some are definitely more 'dead' than others from what I've heard from people so if you do end up firming/insuring LSE I'd happily give you some advice on your accommodation application as well. So yeah, LSE is great, I love it, it's a far smaller community than you'll get at UCL but the social scene is just as good as you'll get anywhere else in London. Obviously all in my humble opinion. Hope that helps! x
    Wow, yeah I'm not sure LSE are used to people with an offer for straight economics turning that down! Yeah sharing rooms is a hell of a lot cheaper, but I would not recommend the experience - we don't really get on that well. And you can always apply for Inter-collegiate halls which have loads of UCL and King's students in anyway....although I haven't heard great things about them to be honest. It's true, basically as long as you're in central London you're going to have a great time. We quite often go to the King's SU bar actually because basically any University of London ID will get you into anything within UoL, and their bar looks over the river and serves nachos so yeah. Last few name-drops...Sub Focus played at our SU last night and Angelina Jolie was on campus a couple of weeks back. LSE is cool. x

    That made me a lot more confident with LSE. I think it would be silly to throw away straight econ at LSE With it being one of the most competitive + prestiguous courses. In addition, I think employment wise, LSE has the edge over UCL especially for straight economics. I love going out to bars/clubs/pubs and meeting new people therefore I do really value my social life. I personally do not think choosing LSE over UCL would be a massive sacrifice in terms of social life there are soooooo many people who say they want to firm LSE but are scared about the social life therefore there is bound to be a large group of us all willing to socialise ������

    Sorry for the absolute essay but hope this is helpful for anybody else struggling between LSE and UCL!
