    So I really like economics, but I'm sure we all know that words aren't enough to convince the college/university interviewer . I'd like to know: what extra curricular activities would help me if I were to pursue this course? Also, are there any good websites/blogs/ economics magazines? I already read some by myself but I'm interested in other sources as well

    One last thing: if I were applying for a economics/finance/geography related course in uni, then what extra curricular activities would be most beneficial?

    Thanks so much! Also, it'd be nice meeting someone with the same interest as me haha :3
    Heya - I have a great interest in Economics and so far have had some offers accepted for studying it at uni!

    I did the Bank of England Target 2.0 challenge which really helped on my PS - it is also a great idea to briefly talk about any talks you've been to. I put in about going to an Economics conference, and from that I developed an interest in a particular area of economics... And also, if you say you've read a book, make sure you read it!

    Oh! Haha okay thanks for the tip! :P
    Congrats on your acceptances!!
    one more thing: when interviewers ask about my aspirations for the future, what exactly do they mean? :/
