Well, this is going to be a bit of a pessimistic thread (and I don't mean to put any prospective LSE students off). But, I'm in my second year now and I remember the days when I used to LOVE studying for Maths. I used to do hours of work and not even feel as though I was "studying" as I found it that enjoyable. The same applies for Economics. But now, I sit in my maths lectures BORED OUT OF MY MIND! I'm sure the content is interesting but the lectures just make me fall asleep, the teaching is okay (I don't have anything to compare it to, university-wise) and I feel like no one really gives a **** about you, they teach for the sake of teaching, which may be why I'm not interested in Maths anymore and cant be bothered to do homeworks. Is it just me? I took some actuarial modules and I find them so much more interesting, which isn't like me at all as I used to be a micro/calculus/algebra enthusiast! So, is it just me? Is it just LSE? Or is it more the transition to university that changes your taste? My friends at other universities love their subjects even more now. EDIT : it may not be LSE but just the way things are taught at university or how different Maths is at university (abstract) than at A levels. (Ps my enter key doesn't work, hence the lack of paragraphs).
How are you celebrating?
