    I think some academics at the LSE are quite arrogant. I am thinking of one in particular who implicitely said I was not good enough for the LSE. I am a very sensitive person, so I felt so upset and no longer considered the LSE as an option.
    I think some LSE students also are arrogant (or proud?). I know they have reason to be proud, but it just makes everyone else feel down (I know I am not LSE calibre, but why rub it in my face that you are studying there?)
    Can you tell what they explicity said? This isn't particularly relevant to the thread, but if they said something like "It's a very competitive course" or "People who don't have 3As tend to be automatically rejected"- then I think you need to recognise your own sensitivity; and I doubt a tutor at an open day would be cruel exactly.

    I was being quite light-hearted about LSE. There is a bit of a culture of being interested in what internships you have, what bank you're going to go work for etc. so that probably leads to some snobbery.
