Rejected from LSE - what next?
Today I was rejected from LSE. It has been my dream university for years and I don't like any of my backup plans: I have an offer to study BSc History and Political Economy at Kings College London and an offer to study Economics and French at Warwick. The third option would be to take a gap year, then reapply to LSE and various other universities.
I want to work in Investment Banking in arole, and I am concerned that going to Kings/Warwick (especially for a course that isn't straight Econ or maths) will severely inhibit my chances of breaking . However I am apprehensive to throw away two University offers and risk not getting into LSE again next year, and wasting a year of my life doing it. Another idea would be to go to Kings (or Warwick, but I really dislike the idea of living in Coventry), and then doing a masters at LSE - however I am concerned with my BSc being in "History and Political Economy" there are limited options for masters degrees.
I would appreciate any input from those in the industry/with knowledge of the recruitment process
