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.(Original post by itzme)
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?)
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.
