    Hi Guys,

    I was trying to work out whether it would be a good idea to apply for the 2 year stream at the LSE in Economics and I was hoping you could give me some of your thoughts. I am applying for MSc in Finance and Economics but the question is should I apply for the 2 year MSc in Economics or MSc in Finance as the other option.

    My profile: Undergrad: 2:1(68% Average) in Finance from Cass Business School with dissertation in Monetary Economics at 81%.
    Good extracurricular.

    The reason I ask is because for Economics it states that a first is required but I was wondering whether that is a rigid requirement or could I hope to get in with a 2:1. Any relevant insight would be appreciated.

    From what I understand it's a very competitive course - if you don't have the minimum requirement than it's going to make it very difficult for yourself. I'd advise applying to a similar MSc at LSE that's less competitive (states a high 2.1 rather than just a 1.1).
