Go onto the LSE site for the course, it will have the ratio of aplicants to places.. i would suspect around 15-1. Good Luck

LSE is one of the hardest unis to get into......51% of applications they accept are from overseas. Loads of ppl get into Oxbridge and get rejected by LSE. They believe in fairness, so it doesn't matter if u've applied late. They don't start making offers like offer unis do until they've received all applications, and so u won't hear from them till really late i.e March. but if u get rejected, they reject u early.

there's something i don't understand about this:
BSc Management (LSE)
Usual standard offer: GCE A level: grades A B B
Applications 2002: 1359
First year students 2002: 59

Why is their standard offer ABB if the Applicant:First yr students is 23:1

Why don't they ask for AAA ? i'm sure there's plenty of people with grades better than "ABB" who apply there to do this course!

anyone know why?

hmmm...as a former student there, I have absolutely no explanation Weeeelll, in an attempt to be helpful, er....the only thing that I can suggest is that it's recognition of the fact that many with lesser A level grades are/can make better potential students for them. Although, the comical element is that they don't actually interview, so.....just wondering how they decide on it! Perhaps they believe they are able to pick up on this from the personal statement! Who knows? I have known very strange scenerio's with LSE. There have been quite a few where very very well qualified people are rejected and others who merely match the suggested offer are accepted.

they don't ask for AAA.....but they said at the open day that they don't consider u unless u achieved AAB or sometimes AAA at AS level depending on which course.

The numbers for 2002

It's more like 32% applications and 38% acceptances (unless you include EU students as overseas (which uni's don't because EU students don't pay international level fees) EU students make up another 11% of applications and 8% of acceptances.

No, not even close. Many of the other highly regarded universities are faiiirly white middle class. If you're looking for a load of international students, then it's probably going to have to be London. I know of LSE, Imperial, UCL, Kings...and SOAS; I assume the rest of the London lot is heavily diverse also.

Although, white middle class types are generally quite friendly, I wouldn't seek to avoid them! lol

I was a student there, it's a well known fact throughout London, one of LSE's selling points.

Well, like any selling point, it doesn't have universal market appeal!:P On the whole it was great, sometimes frustrating. Particularly some of the postgrads, where exceptionally bright people, those from abroad that is. LSE's a crazy ole place, you get some of the most incompetent and brilliant people all under one roof!

The London Institute (20%), SOAS(23%) and Imperial(17%) all have a much higher %age of international fee paying undergraduate students. LSE comes out at 38% (same as acceptances for the last 2 years). UMIST has 16% and St Andrews 15% then comes another raft of London area unis:
City
Westminster
Middlesex
Essex
UCL
Royal Holloway
South Bank

i think id probably find it a bit intimidating being surrounded by loads of different nationalities. one of the things that puts me off a bit about imperial (that and the prices)

You know, London's not thatttttt expensive, unless you want it to be. You can get by having spent an amount comparable to say...Durham, I think. It depends on what your interests are and how much self restraint you have. Oh and, a high maintenance g/f could make all the difference in the balance sheet, truly Enron style
