Due to Lse being my first choice I was very happy at first when i got an unconditional offer from lse few weeks ago. However as I read up on the uni life and as I spoke with a couple of graduates I found out that Lse maybe isn't the university I'm looking for.
So first all, I heard concerns about the student life at Lse. Allegedly there are much less shared activities and events, furthermore you just get to know the people living next to you and some of your course, because of the widespread campuses and the sort of decentralised organsation.
+ is it true that you basically get "kicked out" of the campuses after year 1, so you'd have to live privately somewhere in London, which would, imo completely destroy typical uni campus life?
Third thing I heard is that Lse is a better pick for a Master because Graduate students get much more attention and the better teaching staff, whereas undergraduate students have to work much more on their own, getting not that much help from their tutors like they would at other universities.
So some of this might seem a bit far-fetched probably, however I'd really like to know what youre thinking about it, is Lse a good choice for me, when I honestly don't want to miss the whole "typical uni campus" with different activity clubs, tutoring etc, especially in comparison to Warwick for example?
