LSE Economic history Watch
I got into the course with just the AAB predictions and having 5 Cs at GCSE but because they loved my personal statement so much that they decided to give me the offer. As the person above me has said, your personal statement is the most important thing to get right, if you show your interest and passion for the subject then there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to get in.
Hi, as LSE is almost the only university that offers straight economic history, how did you set out your PS? Where the other courses you applied to Economics or History? I would like to apply for Economic History but most of my PS is about why I want to study history and then when I give specific examples of it I mention my interest in economic history- e.g. reading articles and books by economic historians. Is that enough? As the competition is so high and the PS is so crucial is it worth applying for a course that you're personal statement isn't completely geared towards even if it is not widely available elsewhere?
