    Heyy! I'm an International student (Indonesia) and I've applied to LSE, Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow, Edinburgh for an undergraduate program in Social Policy with Government/Politics.

    I got a conditional offer from Birmingham (achieve ABB in a levels) and was told that my LSE Application had passed the initial assessment and currently under further assessment. If i do get accepted in LSE (wish me luck) I'm kind of concerned with the reviews and feedbacks of LSE undergrad students i read on student room, saying that professors are non english and couldn't deliver the lessons properly, the tremendous amount of work and stress, the dull university, majority of chineese students who only want to socialise with "their kind" , crappy system, and the non existent sense of community and the lack of the "university feels". I am very much aware that LSE is far on top of the rank considered to Birmingham, but on the other hand, Birmingham university life seems more "alive", including how its located in a more "university like" place rather seeming to be located in "workplace" zone like LSE.

    What do you think should i choose? Has LSE improved their student satisfaction and is it really that bad in LSE? given the very expensive tuition fee, is it worth it?

    And is Birmingham considered to be a good school? Does Birmingham has enough reputation to be acknowledged and "respected"? Are the professors and lessons are good?

    Thank you so much. I really hope you can help me!
