    Yeh it seems like no one on the Student Room is applying for economic history :/

    What are your AS, predicted and GCSE grades?

    Mine are:
    1A*, 4A, 4B, 2C's
    AABB = AS grades
    A*AA = Predicted grades

    Just got my initial assessment email today, what do you think are my chances of receiving an offer?

    lol I think I found the only other person applying for it. What are the other courses you are applying for? I still havent decided between their history course and their economic history course. I am a bit worried about applying for economic history because most of my PS is geared towards why I want to study history though when I talk about my interest in history I talk about economic history books I've read. What is your PS like?

    haha fair enough, I went to a student shadowing day and asked someone how they structured their personal statement.She was applying to like 5 different courses from straight history to straight economics with things like Russian studies with economics in between. She said a mix is fine and that LSE recognise that because it is such a niche course they are used to people not devoting their PS 100% to it.

    I've heard lots of mixed responses about LSE and personal statements. LSE is highly competitive and I think it's very important to make sure your PS is tailored towards the course you are applying for at the LSE. Other uni's won't look into your PS as in-depth as LSE will.

    I applied for 5 diff courses but I tailored my PS purely to LSE's economic history and so far have received 2 offers, one from Kings for political economy

    I am an international student. Still waiting for an offer too. They say LSE is quite terrible when it comes to developing a social life, is it true?

    Lowest student satisfaction rating in the country I believe...

    I can't judge on how good or bad they are as I don't go there but there must be some truth to it...

    Most people who apply to LSE don't necessarily go there to have fun but rather to have good job prospects in the future tho...

    Hey, am I throwing an application down the drain.

    I got 7Bs and 3cs GCSE but have extenuating circumstances for this (social workers, large family issues etc).

    A levels- A( German), B (econ), B (politics).

    This year taking A level maths- predicted an A and got 100% in recent mock. Am re taking economics and my reference states that I missed an A by 2 marks and achieved solid A in 2 out of the 3 papers.

    Extra stuff- set up econ society, rugby captain, jp morgan programme etc.

    course I like- Economics and Economic history.

    Is it worth applying as my reference shows I am exponentially improving academically each year and UCL and Warwick both strongly advised me to apply to them. Moreover, can I send additional part of statement more focussed on economic history side as my other courses mainly incorporate economics and business/languages
    thanks
