I've got offer from both LSE and UCL in economics. The conditions are similar (I'm taking IB, LSE requires 38 HL766 and UCL, 39 HL766, both requiring a 7 in maths HL). From other threads it seems UCL has a better social life while LSE can give a better prospect in UK (and LSE vs UCL seems to be a struggle to many lol). But the thing is I'm an international student and I might not be staying in UK after I graduate, so is the difference between an LSE degree and a UCL one huge international-wise?I somehow prefer UCL, but it's really difficult to tell myself to give up LSE.Another question: people are saying that LSE costs more, but shouldn't it be similar?

LSE gave you a lower offer and is more respected. I don't get why you're even considering UCL, especially considering they are both London based and you won't know what the uni is like until you go. LSE vs UCL is only a competition outside of Economics, but Economics is literally LSE's best degree at the best uni to do it in outside of Oxbridge.
