    So I was rejected from Cambridge to read economics, but I'm hoping to get an offer from LSE for economics. In terms of IB targeting, is it honestly worth reapplying to Cambridge? Also, is there any difference between UCL and LSE in terms of front office recruitment? I've scoured the forums, but I'm looking for a definitive answer.

    Thanks in advance.

    LSE > UCL just but not much in it.

    No point - literally no difference. I also think that there is no/hardly any difference between LSE and UCL. All these unis are good enough to break in..now just boost your applications by attending some insight days and acquiring experience (not restricted to finance) which gives you any sort of skills that I-Banks look for e.g. relationship building/teamwork/leadership/quantitative ability/entrepreneurial spirit/strong communication. Try to quantify any achievements you have on a CV and do not copy and paste cover letters - make them as tailored as possible.

    Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

    Short answer: LSE/UCL do not make a difference in the eyes of most employers.
