I firmed an offer for LSE for Phil and Econ last week on Thursday, however today I've just got off the wait list for the University of Chicago, and I think I'm going mad. Basically I need some advice:

A bit of background is that I was born in the US and moved when I was just a baby to London and have lived here now for 17 years. If I was studying at LSE I'd move out, but I feel like I may still be a bit too close to home. Adversely, I've got a decent part-time job here, more connections, and I know for sure I'd have a decent experience.

Meanwhile Chicago presents itself as a brand new experience, known for being a ridiculously tough experience, but at the same time one that's extremely rewarding. The undergrad experience would also be completely different.

Both universities have a great economics department, and would give me a great education - but the problem is I need to pick one - by the end of the weekend!

All advice would be much appreciated!

Many thanks in advance!

Stephen

I voted for LSE on the basis that I assume it will be cheaper for you but to be frank I recommend you visit both as much as you can to see which you prefer

Thanks for your advice, probably should have added I was offered some financial aid from UChicago, so it wouldn't be significantly more expensive than LSE when taking into accounts the cost of living in London, so I'm not letting that be a huge factor in determining my decision.

Go UChic man. My cousin is there currently and is loving every moment of it.

Their Econ department definitely rivals LSE - with the added benefit of you experiencing a new environment.
