    LSE is pretty bad I think, though I expect which university is toughest depends on the course you choose to some extent.

    I'd say LSE without a doubt, as being the "toughest" to get into generally in terms of applicant/place ratios. For the Law with French Law it's something like 4.8 per cent!! :eek:
