    I know LSE like traditional subjects...but they didn't mention that in their prospectus for this course....they said that for BSc economics or BSc Management but not BSc MAths and Economics....even then they said they they still wouldn;t mind if 2 out of 3 is traditional....
    but yes ur right its not ideal....i'm from UK btw.
    U got any previous experience with LSE?...rejections etc...?
    Nope, wouldn't have had a chance applying for their Management course. Would have been a waste of a choice.

    Yeah, im sure that as long as you have 2 outta 3 traditional subjects they will be fine. I know that for my course they want 3 traditional (luckily im doing that) but there are a few courses that dont specify, so i cant see them rejecting you on those grounds!

    The international students at the LSE are amongst the most impressive there. If Brit a is rejected, it is highly likely a better qualified international student took up the place. For some reason, that seems to have escaped the attention of most people here

    Yes i agree with u there...i'm sure they take the very able foreign students and its not just for the £15k that they pay them.

    LSE get the same money from home students as international students......and its not 15k pounds....maybe for medicine...but for most courses its 12k and under......the rest of the money from the home students is paid for by the UK government to LSE

    those cocks also rejected me for economics, despite my almost perfect academic record. it just goes to show, hard work isn't everything.

    btw....35% of undergrad applicants are international.........and about 38% of the undergrads selected are internationa.....so being an international student doesnt neccessarily bolster your chances of getting in....

    Man, i dont understand these uni's! When did your rejection come through? I know of soo many people that LSE have rejected this year, im actually just waitin for mine to come through, i just check the website with the expectation of it saying 'unsuccessful'. Maybe if we hadnt worked so hard for all these years then we would have been more likely to get a place?

    Good luck with all your other uni's thou. Where else have you applied?

    GCSE's dont mean much. AS levels are quite easy compared to A-level, and you guy's are only talking about predicted A-levels, and thats all they are, predicted. If you really want to go to LSE, pull out this year, get your 4 A's or whatever, and have a gap year, and do something useful in it. I doubt they would turn you down if you actully had the grades.

    That refers to Adam Smith btw. He shouldn't really be one of your heroes

    Dude, thats complete madness then, i'd love to know the basis on which they rejected you! I havent heard from Warwick yet (that and LSE are all i'm waiting for).

    If you got those results what hope have i got for LSE, i got 3A*, 6A, 2B, C (french - argh) and my AS were not good! Predicted AAB at A2 (and an A in General Studies - but that is pointless and no-one takes it into consideration, where i have applied, so i don't include it in predictions)

    Its a shame, it could be an interesting read, especially LSEs responses to your article!

    Good luck at Cambridge, i'm sure you'll do brill! You sound like a top student and you deserve to get in there! Keep us updated on how you go!
