Oops!

From Metro: "One of Britain’s top universities has landed itself in hot water after sending an email to its students calling them Kung-Fu Pandas.

London School of Economics wrote to all students who had successfully gained a place on undergraduate courses a confirmation email entitled ‘Dear Kung-Fu, Panda’.

The email continued: ‘This is to certify that Aa-Kung Fu, Panda Tiger Test Test has firmly accepted an unconditional offer of admission to the London School of Economics and Political Science for the full-time, three-year programme of undergraduate study.’

Unfortunately for the university, nearly 70 per cent of their students come from overseas and a third of those are from Asia."

It wasn't a prank. The name was used as a placeholder in the test email, and got sent out accidentally. When I'm writing tests in my software I use stupid names

It's the best British university for Economics. And the 3rd best in the world for Economics. If you ever go to Goldman Sachs's Summer Internship programme, most of them are from LSE.

Why would they write something so unprofessional? Were they being retarded deliberately?

It stopped being a top uni since you got rejected from it.

Uni I am attending: God Tier
Uni that turned me down: Trash tier and overrated.

Oh wow :lol:
But who wants to be called a King-Fu Panda in an offer letter. What were the people who got rejections called? :moon:

LSE just couldn't bear having to go a year without some sort of scandal.

I would argue its not the 3rd best comprehensive uni though. It only teaches the social sciences.

Honestly though QS massively overrates berkeley. Its not 5th best in the world at Econ, that distinction firmly belongs with Pennsylvania's Wharton. Lets not also forget that they put MIT 2nd in the world for econ. What a joke.
