    Hi, So I have applied for mathematics at Oxford, UCL, LSE (maths with economics), Durham and Nottingham.
    I was rejected from Oxford and recently Durham which was my first choice but hold offers from the other 3.
    Career wise I am thinking something finance related not necessarily Investment Banking but do want to have a degree that would get me considered.
    I am gutted about Durham but basically its now between UCL maths and LSE maths with econ but I am going off the economics and I am thinking the flexibility of the maths in terms of modules will be reduced at LSE.
    Also I dont want to spend my whole life in the library but obviously I will work hard. I want to have fun at uni too. Also I live near London and dont want to live at home so would this be a factor. I mean are you eligible for halls in the second year at LSE or UCL?
    UCL offer is A*A*A and LSE A*AA Nottingham is AAB.
    I don't particularly like UCL or LSE they just don't seem to have a uni feel and I quite like Nottingham but do not want to rule out some jobs and regret turning down one of the others.
    Any advice on what to do would be appreciated.

    Go with the University where you think you will feel the most comfortable, and the course that interests you the most.
