I've received offers from both LSE and Warwick.
LSE - Maths with Economics, possibly change to Maths and Economics second year if it's more helpful.
Warwick - Straight Maths
I'm deciding to choose one as my firm choice, but I have no idea whatsoever which one to choose. I'm hoping to carry on a career in Mathematics (with some Economics links in possible).
I can go into Finance etc with an economics degree. I just want to have a strong employability prospect and an enjoyable life at university.
People make LSE sound like hell, workload too much, no support given etc. All I'm saying is, can I cope with it providing I put the effort and stay on track?
Warwick Maths is harder anyway in terms of difficulty, regardless of the various options you get. So I'm not sure if LSE would be a more 'difficult' course.
Would doing Maths with Economics broaden my career prospects rather than doing Straight Maths? Or is 25% Economics to little and it would only have an impact if I done 50-50 Maths and Economics?
Or is it that the name matters only: Since I went to LSE, I'm a don - I'm already advantaged regardless of the degree - and the same for Warwick?
Please help, I'm quite confused as you can see .

Do you think you can be happy and successful if you’re living in London for three years? If you’d be happy in London then you’re unlikely to be happy in Warwick and vice versa.
A first from either is better than scraping a pass or dropping out of the other because you’re miserable.
