I have offers from both LSE and Bath amongst other places.

LSE: Economic History and Geography
Bath: International Development with Economcis

Whilst I appreciate that LSE has a renowned name and reputation, I'm worried that going to such a high calibre institution will mean that I'll constantly be working and will have little time to enjoy doing other things. I was wondering if any LSE or Bath students could shed some light on the different kind of lifestyles there are at each respective uni. Thanks

I'm not a student in either of the two, but you should see what is more important for you(socialising vs career prospects/Academics), LSE is amazing and would definitely help you from a career perspective.
still, both the courses seem quite different, so maybe start by comparing the modules?
London is great for socialising, but social life is what you make it to be. LSE definitely isn't the place if you wanna party a lot but London is very good for connections and networking.
Bath is also a pretty good university, I've heard the social life there is good but you obviously can't compare the two in academics, LSE is wayyy ahead of Bath

Good luck with you decision!

Well done on your offers!

I was in a similar position: UCL or Manchester for engineering. I picked Manchester because:

1. I loved the campus and student experience / much better quality of life I could get there;
2. The course was more internationally renowned in the filed, much better facilities and funding;
3. I knew I would come back to work in London, so now was the time to experience a different city;
4. I would live out in Manchester, whereas I'd likely be more dependent on family if I stayed near them. I learnt to be much more independent, and expanded my circles as a result.

Never looked back, never ever regretted it. Made friends for life, and all my coursemates (300 cohort) were like a family. Worked hard, but worked together. I think your coursemates at Bath will be friendlier, but I think the workload question is silly. Both will be on the same level, you shouldn't worry about that too much.

You're slightly different because I think LSE has the edge here when it comes to the subject, but international development and the Bath course sounds better imho. A few of my friends went to Bath and they all loved it - it's super close to Bristol so they would go out there a lot for nights out.

Maybe if you're London, think about if you'd benefit from doing a few years in another city, think about where you will be working after and what you want to go into. Would you regret not going to one?

If you'll be working in the UK after to begin with - to be honest, noone is going to turn you away 'because you went to Bath' - it has a great reputation.

Honestly, while I'm tired of seeing those comments as well, comments like yours are slowly becoming as annoying. Who gives you the right to tell off these people?

Just shut up, I get the compassion if they have been rejected. But for an offer holder, surely you want to know what they did right. That is what TSR is for and that’s why you’re on here. Stop being soft and whining every chance you get.

Hi - wow, I think you are the very first person on TSR in 2021 to report an offer from LSE!

Have you not seen the LSE thread? People have been waiting to hear something for months on end! There’s a spreadsheet with no offers in it.

Please come over and put your offer on the spreadsheet! Also, we need to know - when did you get the offer - recently?

I also have an offer from Bath for his same course, but have applied for Geography BA at LSE. Still waiting to hear there through!

Did you apply for the 4-year International Programme at Bath as this may be another factor?

I’m in London too, so I know what you mean about a change of scene. But overall, I think I would choose LSE in your position.

Stop crying its not like he was rejected.

its perfectly normal to be transparent and straight to the point as im sure he knows hes done well for himself anyway. I dont see why youre trying to get take the moral high ground when you yourself didnt congratulate him smh

Also hes the 1st person to report an offer from LSE so i seriously doubt the validity of his claims

Exactly. LSE themselves told the applicant thread they had and are making offers. Wouldn't suprise me if people have had offers but everyone's ignored them because "no one's had an offer yet"
