    HI
    So I've received offers from King's College London (BSc Economics & Management) and University of Manchester (BSc Economics).

    Looking at FO position in IB (aren't we all lol) and I know it's very unlikely with either but any guidance for which I should firm? I'm from Ireland so hard to get really know which would be best. Seems Economics in KCL is basically unknown (I think the course has no graduates yet).

    Also have the option of attending Trinity College Dublin (Economics & Maths or Management Science)

    Also considering reapplying .... Would it be worth it?

    Thanks for any responses

    KCL > Manchester

    Not sure about Dublin but I know a few people who went along that path and have done very well.

    Don't just base it on 'best chance into FO' hear say though, choose which one you genuinely like the most (course, city etc.)

    I'd take TCD.

    Cheaper fees, best university in Ireland and has solid representation within the city. Unless you really want to leave Ireland for uni, I don't see the benefit in turning down TCD.

    KCL and Manchester are very similar in terms of representation, but imo Manchester has a better Econ department and is much cheaper to live in.

    I would either go to Trinity College Dublin or reapply to target unis in the UK (if your grades are good enough).

    I'd avoid TCD and go with KCL. TCD has been dropping like a stone in reputation and has a lot of problems recently (I was there myself there last year and got out with repayment of fees after some horrible maladministration nearly cost me my fees). Also accommodation situation is out of control in Dublin - same prices as I paid at UCL during an exchange year but for a far worse flat, and only after avoiding several scams, some I nearly fell into, that they seem to be doing nothing about in Ireland (when I arrived there were students camped out in the Student Union office whose housing turned out not to exist and they are constantly putting out desperate requests for help for such students)
