    So basically anyone who is a social retard, can't speak to anyone and witht he worst personal qualities and traits can get into LSE?
    I guess so but I don't understand how that would devalue the course!?!?!?!

    The said secluded person would have to be pretty talented and devoted to the subject to get in so whether or not he/she have a social life, the standard of the university and course as a whole would still be high.

    so far:
    the teachings bad
    lecturers aren't amazing (apart from econ)
    a lot of us probably dont like our course or aren't there to learn economics and just want a job in the end
    but oh well
    we have fun, the social retard bit isn't true
    anyone that can survive the 3 years and do well in their degree at LSE is definitely clever and would do well in the working world
    yes its probably true, lse churns out bankers and lawyers and accountants etc. but not every university student can end up in research into their subject or teaching their subject... and most oxbridge students end up in the same places as LSE students, so in the end everyones the same

    Edit: oh and from 2010 every LSE student learns about current affairs, the world, what causes... and crap like that in a compulsary module...

    After? THATS BULLSH. One of the leading universty, you should demonstrate the skills and qualities required to be a good 'candidate' for your coures from day one. Any idiot could write 'I HAVE REALYL GOOD XYZ SKILLS, I WORKED IN HILTON HOTEL, DID THEIR FINANCE FOR DEM AND ALLZ' - just cause his dads got links and he did nuff all... He deserves a place? NO.
    I don't usually make these kinds of petty comments but before you start mocking people's grammar, you should probably try learning the difference between 'been' and 'being'...

    I don't understand you logic here!

    What kind of degrees do you classify as real???

    Which degrees do you classify as 'not so real'?

    Just one question to this post.

    Do you think that a student who has AAAA grades (for undergrad course) or 1st class honours degree (for postgrad course) needs to be interviewed for admission?

    It does. There are only a few people who can pull off a perfect lie and not get busted as a result.

    So you admit that lies can be made by telling or by writing (or lie has both verbal & paper formats).....even fake evidence can be made to support lies & can be twisted in such way that no verification could be made. That's why like Harvard or MIT or Yale, LSE's mostly courses required GRE/GMAT as they can be verified and these two tests fairly judge the analytical, mathematical, & verbal abilities of a student. Whereas, mostly courses of golden triangle members (Oxbridge, Imperial, KCL) have no condition of GRE/GMAT.

    Hence proved, LSE's admission process is far better than any other institute's in this country.

    Case is closed :cool:

    Cheers!

    What if someone has slightly worse A levels, but scores higher on these tests? Do you take the slightly worse a level student, and if so wat was the point in doing them at all? If they take the better a level student the test was pointless.

    You are implicitly assuming that GMAT/GRE is a superior test

    Well you got STEP, AEA, TSA + Academic Interview at Oxbridge and Imperial.

    You can lie all the way to the interview or admission test but then it ends isn't it?

    I am not really sure what are you arguing about?

    We are talking specifically about the top universities.
    If you look at the uni stats you will see that the average applicant who manages to get in got ~90% across all modules.

    100/100 is indeed very optimistic, well done at misinterpreting my point.

    indeed YES GRE or GMAT is a superior test than STEP,AEA or TSA because it's widely accepted & honestly I have never heard of this STEP,AEA or whatever

    We are discussing undergraduate admission

    Gmat has nothing to do with it

    I think we are discussing different things

    GMAT and GRE are for graduates, correct?

    This is an undergraduate admission discussion, please read the thread before posting
