    My problem (and most likely an Admissions Tutor's as well) isn't the fact that you haven't put line breaks, it is that you're in a type of limbo between line breaks and one big body of text. Either you should take out the line breaks, or put more in.

    Hey, if you take them out at least you have more room for your precious enthusiasm.
    I'd have 2 characters more...

    I think if I have the opportunity to highlight my post important paragraphs then I should... but well done for not addressing anything I said

    ...OK

    'You'll find out the hard way when you carry on that kind of inconsistent form with a CV', you're implying I would do that with a CV, where there are no line constraints, which is a ridiculous assumption.

    You seem to have trouble understanding me
    Yes, I said you'd carry on that kind of inconsistent form, as in formatting your CV in an inconsistent manner. Not as in creating a CV in the exact same format as a personal statement, which in your words, is a ridiculous assumption.

    Jeez, I don't think you're university material mate, your inference skills are very questionable.

    I was wondering if you guys think there is any point of me applying to LSE with:

    5A*s 5As at GCSE
    Taking Maths, Further maths, Economics, Physics (dropped for A2)
    AABB at AS
    Predicted AAA for A2

    To study economics at LSE when they want A*AA :/ I mean i'm positive that i will get A*AA at A2 but ofc they don't know that..

    I wouldn't apply to straight econ with those grades. As you said, they won't know that you are able to achieve A*AA. It is like the most competitive course in the UK. I would either apply to a joint degree course (economics and history for instance) or to a different university. What are your other choices?

    What I was saying is that why an earth would I have the same inconsistency in a CV, which is a totally different format that doesn't have the same constraints as a PS. What does my CV have to do with it in the first place?

    http://www2.lse.ac.uk/study/undergra...ed-subheading6

    econ.lse.ac.uk

    UCAS code: L101 BSc/Econ

    Course requirement: A level Mathematics is required. A level Economics is not essential. Further Mathematics taken at A level is strongly preferred and is seen as an additional or fourth subject. Thus a combination of Mathematics, Further Mathematics and one other subject is not seen as providing the required breadth of knowledge and skills.

    Good choices. But I wouldn't waste a choice because LSE even rejects A*A*A*A candidates, candidates you think that they'd definetely get a place.... They are unpredictable.

    I never said "same", I said "kind" i.e. similar

    I mentioned CV's because they serve a similar purpose - you're just selling yourself to an employer, not a university.

    I just find it very hard to compare a CV and a PS, whilst I accept they serve a similar purpose bottom line is the only reason for inconsistency is because of the constraints

    CVs have no constraints so no inconsistency

    Hi everyone!
    New to the thread, hah.

    GCSEs: 11A*s, 1A
    AS: 5As in Maths, Economics, History, English Lit and Critical Thinking (also taking F Maths and Extended Project this year... why did I take on the challenge, hah...).
    Choices: Cambridge, LSE, UCL, Warwick and Bristol.
    They all have pretty high entry requirements; I'm just hoping for some offers.
    However, if I do get offers, then picking a firm and insurance will be awkward since the offers are likely to be the same (assuming I get two offers from the first four options and that Bristol rejects me).

    Anyone else with this problem?

    You were a bit conservative with your choices (if you got two or more A*s preds)
