I have received unconditional offers from both (I am on a gap year at the moment) and don't know which to choose, any advice would be much appreciated.
For those who don't know Queen's is one of the best Uni's in Canada. McGill, U of T, Queen's and UBC can be ranked in any order depending who you happen to ask. That in itself is an issue as although within Canada it is well known, internationally it doesn't exist.
They are almost polar opposites. Queen's is in a beautiful small town campus (which I adored). LSE is London. LSE is very well known. Queen's isn't. The teaching at Queen's is excellent, perhaps not so much at LSE? Queen's got me excited about university, it was different, everyone there was happy, intelligent and good looking. It was like my utopia. Since receiving my LSE offer, I've been in turmoil. The speakers at LSE, and the people I'd meet there makes it all so appealing. What I have heard about LSE students is really fascinating - entrepreneurial, leaders, politically active, intelligent etc. Does anyone know just how true any of this is?
If anyone has any information on the teaching at LSE, just how bad the accommodation issue is (they all look a bit small), and also the type of people who attend LSE. I am going up to visit LSE soon, but your opinions would be most welcome.
PS. I realise this is a little absurd, but opinions on LSEs large internationally community, and the... attractiveness of the students could well lift a weight off my mind.
Sorry this post is longer than usual, I lack the time to make it shorter.
