Fees for LBS?

I am pre-university at the moment (working on a gap year). I will have 20k in savings by the time I start uni. I have aspirations of going to LBS one day, but the fees are 100k. 

The max government loan is 10k, and I'm not special enough to tick any scholarship backgrounds (I'm poor, but fit no diversity etc).

Even if I swing IBD 140k pre-tax / living costs across two years, I don't think I can afford it.

Am I fucked?

Current LBS student here. No clue where you got the £100k figure from-especially if you intend on applying for 1-year early career programs like the MFA.

Tuition rn is around £42k. Rent + living expenses (food/going out etc) could be £15-40k depending on how lavishly you wanna live. For reference, I'm spending about £2200 per month all-in (rent + eating out + fun expenses) and I'm well aware of many people living both +/- 2 sd from me in terms of costs.

All-in, realistically, you'd be looking at around £65-70k for your year's worth of expenses. It's definitely not cheap but nowhere near £100k

Did you get a scholarship and did you also do the GMAT? I'm considering applying
