Greetings from across the pond
Currently, I am attending high school in America (precisely Boston). I don't have any ties with the UK or anything like that, but I am thinking about applying to colleges in England, such as LSE, UCL, or KCL.
The sad thing is that, not much people around me knows about British schools. Non of my parents studied in the UK and the only person who actually went to school in the UK (full time student, not as a exchange student etc...) is my math teacher (Cambridge), but she's old now and information she has is quite outdated (that's what she said)
I indeed was able to get some information online, but I really think I should visit LSE before I apply. Thus I'm planning to visit LSE on open day if I can.
But the problem here is that plane ticket to London is mad expensive and I will have to miss two days of school in March.
So here is the question that's really in my mind: Is LSE Open day on March worth visiting? And how was your experience?
Obviously if I decide to go, then I'll be spending a lot of money for flight and accmondation at London, but still if visiting LSE on open day helps, then I will surely visit.
And for those who attended LSE Open day, how did your day go? Can you tell me more detailed information (like schedule...etc...)?
Thanks in advance
p.s.) Excuse my poor English. I grew up in a non-English speaking country.
What are the downsides?
