    Imperial students are too busy throughout the academic year. Demanding courses with high workload results in little free time.

    There are a number of people on TSR who have al ot of posts and also attend Imperial, but they don't really post in this forum. Particularly as it's full of people asking stupid questions.

    I think you only feel that way because LSE people feel the need to create a thread about every little thing that they can think of, where as Imperial people are sticking mainly to the sticky at the top.

    LSE students, as social sciences students, feel the need to have their questions answered by more than one source, so a website telling them the average entrance conditions could be biased, or otherwise incorrect. They therefore need as many opinions as possible on a subject before being able to draw their own conclusion as to whether or not they have met the average entrance conditions, as percieved by the group.

    Imperial students, as proper scientists, look at the entrance page and tick their grades off one at a time, if they have a sufficient number of ticks they draw the conclusion they will probably get in - with experimentation needed. If they have an insufficient number of ticks they conclude they will not get in - with investigation needed as to what went wrong.

    Simple.

    The LSE forum more active largely because every other post is some 16 year old asking about the importance of GCSE's.

    Oh and because Imperial's are Gimperial's. Fact.

    Your mother.
    Since when were 'your mum' jokes funny? I just find them lewd, and extremely puerile.

    I do like to think of myself as an underdeveloped pre-teen, scouring the online world for a quick laugh. My mother should pay more attention to what I'm doing on the internet. Those random guys she sees each night keep her pretty occupied though.

    If there is such a thing as a post worth 'repping' this has got to be it. Brilliant, thank you

    Wimperial may, in fact, be more accurate.

    Anyway, it only takes about 10 posters to make an active subforum. Look at the Durham forum, a university quite a bit smaller than Imperial in size and stature but the TSR forum is a million times more active.

    Or perhaps, students at Imperial have more things to do and generally get out more, hence do not have time for forums :rolleyes:
