LSE is an excellent university with bright, diverse students. The coursework can be rigorous, but it's not unmanageable. First year courses that provide more of a foundation for your degree are not that well-taught. However, degree-specific courses are excellent. The university is extreme key career focused, especially if you are in the econ/accounting/finance side. This can be stressful and a lot of students seem to get caught up with finding the best internship. Overall, LSE can be a great, interesting place to spend your studies if you make it one. Focusing on friends and exploring London rather than focusing on internships and networking, etc. I think LSE is a place that will challenge everyone and push you to grow.
