    Hi guys,

    Does anyone know if I am applying to a Masters in LSE that one of my lecturers has done, should I mention this in my personal statement or not? Also, would it be smart to use this person as a referee, or no?
    Thanks.

    How is your lecturers situation relevant to your application? You need to talk about why you want to do this course, and "because Bob did it" isn't really impressive.
