Hi all,

I know/ heard of students getting offers from either LSE or Oxbridge, haven't ever heard of anyone who've got offers from both LSE & Oxbridge.

Just being curious, anyone who's got offers from both?

Probably not mutually exclusive but LSE could tell those candidates who have applied to Oxbridge as they have to submit their UCAS form by 15 Oct. As both LSE and Oxbridge have similar entry requirements, any good candidates who apply post 15th Oct are more likely to choose LSE as their firm offer and as a result more likely to get an offer?

UCAS opens on the 1st September and many students like to get their applications early. So it does not always mean they are applying for Oxbridge.

So LSE cannot tell if a candidate has applied to Oxbridge or not. DG

Not to mention, one can submit one's application for Oxford / Cambridge alone before 15th October and add any others at one's leisure at any time up to 15th January (or even later, if the university concerned says that it is still giving equal consideration to applicants). So really there is no way any given university can know for sure where else someone has applied to, just going on when it receives their applicstion.

not exclusive my daughter had offers from both, she chose oxford but for economics i don't think it matters much although you can't do a pure econ degree at oxford - she did economics and management.
