Hi, I've recently got back from a UCAS convention (down in Exeter, if anyone else went). Unfortunately, it's left me with more questions than answers for a multitude of reasons...
Would I be right in thinking that I'd stand a significantly greater chance of being accepted by LSE, if I applied to do 'Econometrics and Mathematical Economics' as opposed to strait 'Economics'?
How does the application process work: Am I correct in thinking that you apply to 5 universities, ranking them in order of preference, and that if several of them make you an offer you cannot choose which you want to go to - you must go to the on you ranked highest?
Do universities know their ranking, in terms of your choices? If so, are they more likely to make you an offer if you were their first choice?
Many thanks, sorry for my confusion!!
Why do people do it?
