    Guys, posted this on the accommodation thread as well..
    I am applying for accommodation after receiving my offer for law. I was wondering.. for the option in the Application Form about whether I would consider another hall or another type of room, should I tick yes? Perhaps this would affect my offer for accommodation? I am thinking that I would end up with an expensive hall or a shared room, as opposed to my single room at Carr-Saunders, Rosebery or Passfield..What did you choose at that particular question?

    I didn't have the patience anymore and sent my application form, after ticking no. I just thought that I don't want an offer for a more expensive single or a shared room that I can't turn down after that, so.. Hope I don't end up living on the street )
    What hall did you choose anyway and when did you apply for accommodation?
    By the way, thank you for your response anyway

    Haha, all that studying!! After much research he decided that Carr Saunders was the one he liked best. It sounds really sociable and in a great location. Where is your first choice?

    I really liked Rosebery. Carr-Saunders is my second choice.
    I don't know, when I researched the halls, this one, Rosebery felt like the right fit for me, although I have to say that I was tempted to put Carr-Saunders.Then I started thinking that being a 31 week contract, I don't have a place to leave my stuff and since I am an international student, carrying them back with me every holiday felt like a difficult situation to find myself into. I saw that Rosebery had both 31 and 38 week contract, so hopefully I get to meet someone I can trust and who would be so kind as to keep some of my stuff in his room while on holidays. Hope everything will be fine

    I think you can pay to get your things stored. Don't think you'll find it a problem. My daughter's at university in Scotland and a group of them pay a small amount to get their belongings stored. We live in Ireland so there's no point in bringing everything home.

    Oh, I see. It didn't occur to me, but then again, I really liked the hall. It is a great advice, though! Thank you

    LSE passfield allows you to leave 1 bag during the XMAS and Easter break at no charge. I expect the others will offer this service. There is a limit on the dimensions but I don't think they check it.

    Hasn't been used this year because of construction. Not sure about next year, but we'll do open bars for big events like for freshers events, Halloween etc

    Hi. I am from India doing my IBDP from Switzerland. I have been offered BSC Sociology from LSE and Information Management for Business from UCL. Being from Asian background what are the post course employment options fro me especially with the new VISA rules which have come into effect from April 2016 for Tier -II Work Permit. I want forum inputs whether I should choose one of these courses and if yes which one would have better prospects of getting a job immediately after completing the course. Alternatively should I consider BA in Economics from UoT in Canada. Thanks
