    1.) Does LSE allow a "mixed-mode" system? Could I remain in North American and meet once or twice a year with my supervisor?

    2.) Is their less competition into certain LSE PhD programs then others? For instance is it safe to assume that social policy or economics department is harder to gain admission to because of its size and production. Though research methods or planning would have less competition thus easier for admission?

    Thank you for the input and please excuse my ignorance.

    Hi there,

    1) theoretically you can't do it remotely (although I know somebody who did, but he was in a very senior position professionally)

    2) yes, some departments are harder to get in then others. I know that Social Policy, IR, Economics are quite competitive.
