I gained lifelong friends and learned about academic community in my major economics. A student - Trinity University View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile! I appreciated the diversity of both London and LSE as it was a stark contrast from Wellesley (both the town and the university) Ilina Mitra - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I learned from my program that i really like where i live, and that I want to remain in Texas after graduation. It was worth while, and a very good learning experience, both academically and about myself. Kevin K - Trinity University View Entire Review

There were so many times when I just wanted to pull my hair out and was so frustrated because I was doing all the right things, but felt no give-and-take with LSE.

Sara C - Providence College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. I proved to myself great things about my endurance and intelligence. I was able to interact with different people, which has proven a useful characteristic when communicating.
