    Oh thanks for the info! But it does load for me... That's so weird. I think I'll upload the avatar again, that might help


    That is true consultancy is probably also a good start to get a foot in the door of a thinktank someday. I'll definetely try to get as many internships as possible whilst being at uni. Only then I'll be able to decide what I really want to do for the next 10-20 years

    St Andrews still has to reply but if they don't make an offer, then York will be my firm and QMUL will be my insurance. What unis are you thinking about firming and insurancing?

    Yeah, I know.
    Everyone who wants to do economics in my class are aiming for the top unis but every economics applicant in my class all applied to QMUL. It's very popular in my school.

    Which unis did u apply to?

    I always thought it was because there are no other alien worlds to trade with as substitutes...


    ... I could be wrong though

    :lol: Traditional characters are so silly. Hong Kong : y u no use simple language? Aww, well that's a start at least!
    If anything I think traditional characters make more sense because they maintain the meanings behind them. :yep:

    Do people wish there was a website which made choosing the right university easier? Because I'm making one at the moment, just wondering if it would interest anyone?

    Yeah, although LSE's offer is technically harder.
    Excuse me if this is a really stupid question, but how can you have an insurance that needs higher/the same grades as your firm? :confused:

    Suppose it depends on how good it, there is a lot of them out there but none of them are very good...

    By picking one as your insurance and one as your firm. What the grades are might affect your decision, but it does not make it impossible to firm, for example, an ABB offer and use an A*AA as a back up. Perhaps you prefer the university with the lower offer.

    I think his point is if you don't meet the requirements of your firm which is a lower offer then what is the point of the insurance.
