    I wonder if the rankings would change if LSE and Imperial ever decided to merge together. Doubt that it is even possible, but that would be interesting.
    Hmmm, I've heard LSE/ICL sometimes collaberate on projects, but UCL and ICL were much closer to actually merging? apparently UCL staff didn't want this to happen though?
    I think that if LSE/ICL merged the strength of the resulting institution would be phenomenal!! Hmm I wonder why they don't? maybe they feel there are too many subjecte? but wouldn't this be a good thing, ie they both increase their range of subjects?

    The maths departments would collide. And then LSE's maths department would have to be shut down, because imperial's is superior

    Yeah, but both schools would each get a lot of great depts. I don't think that the schools have the same departments for a majority of the subjects they teach.

    But I wonder if it would be too cumbersome for a merger. Besides what would the merged institution be called? Here are some bad names

    Imperial School, London

    or

    The London School of Economics, Political Science, Engineering, Medicine, Business, Law, and whole lot of other stuff

    wow, just looked at mine, where i'm going (dundee) is suprisingly high- 28th, considering what a small (so relatively poor) uni it is. although it is slightly irritating that i got offers from 3 unis higher up (incl. a top 10) ... ah well at least i'm going to somewhere i actually want to live for the next 4 years.

    The subject tables aren't linked to but they ARE online.

    Medicine - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/display...,13431,00.html
    Law - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/display...,13425,00.html
    Geography - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/display...,13415,00.html
    Mathematics - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/display...,13429,00.html

    Just go to http://www.timesonline.co.uk/display...,134XX,00.html and replace the XX with two random numbers and move up and down the number range - subjects are in alphabetical order. Just keep changing the number incrementally until you find the subject.

    thanks for the geo rankings,durham are still top that's just so coooooool!!!!!!!
