    It depends what exactly you mean by prestige. The "common" person in the USA won't have heard of LSE or Warwick. Someone hiring in banks who knows about UK unis probably won't mind. Someone hiring in a big firm who doesn't know much might have heard of LSE, but I doubt the edge is big in favour of LSE (I think only Oxbridge have a real edge). A top university will percieve Warwick as far better when someone will apply for a Math PhD. Etc.Etc.
    It seems a bit like hair splitting. Yes, if we add everything up, LSE might have a slight edge, but nowhere near the prestige that Oxbridge has.
    You do know there are countries East of the UK?

    A joke? COWI (Cambridge, Oxford, Warwick, Imperial) are the best unis for math in the UK, there is no controversy about that. As a Warwick student, I will of course say that it is better than our rivals, but that is more tongue-in-cheek than anything else. For math, we are all more or less equal.

    What do you study if I may inquire?
    Do agree with you, in fact I'd put Warwick above Oxford for maths.

    You know that none of this matters at all, right? Prestige will get you nowhere if you have a low 2:1/2:2.

    A top firm will happily reject someone from Oxbridge/LSE/Warwick, no matter the course's or university's 'prestige' if they have poor/standard grades. If we start talking about Maths PhDs, then grades are all the more important.

    Table the pissing contest and go revise for exams, those are far more important to your future.

    Suggesting someone to defer enrollment or to take a year off to try it again at LSE is not a well thought-out advice. And, I'd go far and say, it is ridiculous and silly at best.
