I have offers of A*AA from both LSE and Warwick, which should I choose to be my firm? I think LSE has a better reputation but I'm worried about the social life being boring compared to a campus Uni???

Just read this :

I would definitely choose Warwick, a campus has so much more to offer...

Warwick is part of the magic triangle, i.e Oxbridge, LSE and Warwick for IB, and generally a target uni for ANYTHING.

So pick the uni based on your preferences re: campus vs city, and living costs.

I had that same choices before (but for management) and I chose Warwick. I thought the student support, counseling programme, tutorial, low dropout rate, high graduation rate, the student care in general and the college experience as a whole at Warwick won it over LSE. It also helps that Warwick has a campus which makes you feel you are in real university, and all activities are intertwined with the university where there's a larger rate of student participation. On the other hand, LSE would also be great. Either way, it's a win-win situation for you. Both are target schools for high profile banking and finance jobs. Just visit both campuses to know which one fits you best.

Thanks guys, in the end i have gone for LSE as firm and Warwick as insurance, taking a gamble with clearing if i end up with AAA as my other offers were Kent ABB or Exeter A*A*A. I really liked both, but i thought that for straight econ, LSE offered a better location in the heart of london which suited me. I was worried about the social life at LSE, but after the offer holders day i decided that it would still be good, as they still have clubs and societies.
Overall, thanks for the advice.

Good decision, great place to be for econ, great career opportunities and you don't have to socialise with LSE only - there's plenty of other socials in london

Exeter asked for A*A*A? What jokers, they are barely a top 20 UK university, if that. They think they are like Durham.

No difference between the two. Make your decision based on course preference and location, carefully. I rejected LSE, UCL and QMUL for Warwick because the course structure was more suited to me (I had no other option to base it on as LSE, UCL and Wwick are exactly the same in terms of academia).

They are the same. Choose one based on personal views now, as the academic reps are equivalent.

Now that Exeter is ranked in the top ten, and applications have increased 40% over the past few years, they can now ask for high grades.

Are you sure this is how you draw a triangle?

I find the social life at LSE immense tbh, and I socialise primarily with LSE students.

Forget the UK rankings, they do not measure academic prestige. Exeter needs to improve their World ranking to be taken seriously.

Phew .... LSE Economics as firm of course. I find it difficult to believe that anyone would firm Warwick over LSE for Economics. For the rest of their lives, they would be trying to convince everyone that they actually did that. LOL

Economics at Warwick is highly respected too. And, Economics & Economics History at LSE is not considered below that of Economics. You should really go for that which you will enjoy most. Either will not adversely affect your employment prospects in future.
