    I do want to stay in america afterwards, but I plan to do an MBA in america before looking for work if I head to LSE.
    Any MBA that will accept you without at least a few years of solid experience in a good job would be a complete waste of time.

    Offer from Nottingham!

    AAA or AABB

    Absolutely thrilled, especially as it was my first choice, and I was feeling quite down after getting rejected from St Andrews last night, but so happy now!
    Congrats!

    Wow insane grades! How come you've done 2 A2's early? Does that mean you applied with 2A*s already?

    Haha! insane? Your's can't have been too bad either if you have an offer from LSE
    Yes, applied with A* in maths and physics, and so don't need to worry about anything except FMaths and Econ this year
    I reckon I covered the E in Fmaths in this Jan's exams though (hopefully ) so just econ in the summer that is the decider

    It's a great combo! The lecturer on a Warwick open day said that that is probably the best set you can do for getting into econ (he had done the same A levels at college so maybe some bias there ), but ofcourse not going to change the result drastically versus other science + maths combos

    Did you apply to LSE? If so, you shouldn't worry about the time it's taking, i was prepared to wait till march for LSE to say anything and then i got home and opened my email - what a shock

    Thank you

    What i mean is, it's not quite the 10+ A* at GCSE and 5A* A level (and already worked in goldman sachs for 2 years) (and the list goes on...) that i see so many applicants on here have, or atleast claim to have.

    In the end, i don't feel my grades have as much of an impact as personal and tutor statements, as they don't even interview anymore, so how are they going to know what we are like otherwise.

    Good luck if you're still waiting to hear back

    thanks

    LSE - Offer (A in Economics, E in Further Maths)
    Warwick - waiting
    UCL - waiting (they have asked me about my language ability so they must still be considering - hopefully)
    Bath - Asked to have copies of my achieved A* A Level certifs this wednesday, so maybe that means an offer soon, not sure
    Bristol - Offer (B in economics)

    Where else did you apply apart from LSE?

    Thanks, good luck to you too, or do you really need it? LSE more or less in the bag, what more could you ask for?
