    MMORSE at Warwick or actuarial science at LSE.

    LSE pros -
    - Probably better overall rep and prestige
    - degree might be more useful if I want to be an actuary
    - probably better job prospects, could even get into investment banking surely?
    - London probabily a good thing?

    LSE cons -
    - Heard so many horror stories about poor student satisfaction. teaching isn't great apparently?
    - apparently undergrads are treated poorly compared to postgrad.
    - apparently I've also heard a lack of social atmosphere/language barriers, etc?
    - probably more expensive
    - my own worries that I have little to no life skills and/or sense of direction and if I go to London I'll die.


    Warwick pros -
    - might prefer the better atmosphere and campus. Probably cheaper and better for the student experience and all that.
    - degree I think gives a bit more option for the future.
    - I know it's silly but my closest friends are going there. Won't let this affect my decision at all though.

    Warwick cons -
    - maybe less prestige, etc
    - maybe not as great job prospects, is an extra year with fewer exemptions if I want to be an actuary
    - might not enjoy living in the campus in the middle of nowhere.




    Help, seriously. I cannot decide at all.

    If that's an issue, then being at uni in london is the least of your worries

    If you are dead set on becoming an actuary, then LSE.
    If not, then Warwick. Simple.

    And Warwick definitely has as good a reputation as LSE with regards to actuarial job prospects, so don't worry about that.

    If I had to choose, I'd say LSE. Also, you could always switch to BMS in your second year.

    I'd choose Warwick, just because you seem more uncertain about LSE.

    Indeed. So I suppose I'll have to learn life skills sometime.
