    You don’t need work experience.

    The PSs you’re reading were likely successful DESPITE the WE rather than because of it. LSE are very clear about their disinterest:

    “You can also mention extra-curricular activities such as sport, the arts or volunteering or any work experience you have undertaken. However, the main focus of an undergraduate degree at LSE is the in-depth academic study of a subject and we expect the majority of your personal statement to be spent discussing your academic interests.”
