Provided I get offers, should I choose Philosophy & Economics at LSE or PPE at Warwick?
Not sure if I like the sound of LSE's course... too science based? Anybody who has done/is doing the course, please do give your opinion!
I also want to factor in the reputation of the University / which is better / career prospects.
Yeah, It's a very interesting choice indeed. As I'm only preparing for PPE I haven't any inside information, so I just heard the same thing as you- Philosophy at LSE is more "scientific" based. Things like methodology, logic and Karl Popper. I rather like it, however political attitude for teaching this subject (Warwick) is also tempting.
In terms of reputation, LSE is more renowned and the rankings are on its side. Warwick is, on the other hand, more flexible; it has something known as "bridge model" that enables you to explore multidisciplinary areas around PPE subjects. I've also heard that LSE is rather "cold", social life isn't its strong side, Warwick has campus, which seems better for socializing.
If I were to choose LSE, It would be only because of reputation factor and willingness to live in the City.
