Taking time off school is almost always horrible advice.

Also, I applied for a top university thinking I wouldn't get in, then I did. Can't get in if you don't apply.

I will take it in consideration. I will most likely end up applying for tinbergen instead of lse. Wouldnt know what to do with the year, plus they are trying to get me a full scholarship, dont see lse doing that xp.

Unless you're super motivated to get shit done you'll spend all day masturbating.

It's taken me 2 months to join the gym.

I am super motivated to get shit done in my courses, but i am really lazy outside of school lol. I will just ask around to my professors again what they think and how they think i should approach it.

Yeah I've changed paths. I was accepted into Archaeology at uni but then I changed my mind to do music.

I didn't get into the course because of inadequate keyboard skills.

I took a year to learn piano and then at the end of the year I didn't reapply. I realised that uni was probably not going to get me anywhere.

I got a shitty retail job and took a course in building guitars.

Stick with your original plan, all this 'university X is better than university Y' bogus is purely based on statistical wankery. And taking a year off really is a bad idea.

Apparently it's not so bogus. With an LSE degree you can get a job anywhere, whereas with a Frankfurt or Amsterdam degree you have more troubles internationally.

edit: I think Signalling theory can prove that.

That's because employers believe the bogus. It might give you an advantage in finding a job with just your Msc, but if you're going to do a PhD afterwards then that's gonna be all they're looking at.

I spent nearly four years studying finance. Never finished my degree. Quit because I hated it. Now I'm trying to get into med school.

I just want to say that you should always go for gold.

Tinbergen intstitute in Amsterdam, right? I myself am doing an economics degree at Erasmus University Rotterdam, and I must say, am loving it here in Holland.

Relating to your topic, I would continue where I was at, UNLESS, I was sure that if I took a year off, I would do something productive, like getting a job. If you're thinking of applying for LSE during the next batch, make sure your finances can sustain it. That shit is ridiculously expensive. I got accepted there on grades alone, but couldn't afford to pay the fees in the end. Settled for EUR, and am loving it here.

Werent you eligible for funding?

Tinbergen is a joined research institute from rotterdam, and the two amsterdam universities.
