London School of Economics Admissions

I read somewhere that LSE does not look at GPA for undergraduate admissions, but rather SAT and AP scores. Is this true? If so what would my chances of getting into the Economics Program be with a 2230 SAT score, and a 5 in Macroeconomics, microeconomics, US Government, Comparative Government and Calc AB?

    From what I can tell on the LSE page, you'd need more AP exams to be eligible to apply, as strange as that sounds - LSE doesn't count some of the exams you've taken (the list of "relevant subjects" is at the link). That being said, LSE's admissions statistics are hard to come by.
    The American High School Diploma is not sufficient as an entry qualification to LSE on its own. Applicants should offer in addition at least five relevant two-semester subjects at Advanced Placement (AP) level with minimum grades of 4 and 5 (depending on the varying standard offer for the course). At least three AP's should be taken in the same exam season. For programmes requiring AAA at A level (see the relevant entry in the Undergraduate Prospectus) grade 5 in five two-semester AP courses is expected. For programmes requiring AAB and ABB at A level grade 5 in at least four (of five) two-semester AP courses is expected. For programmes requiring BBB at A level grade 5 in not less than three (of five) two-semester AP courses is expected. When Maths A Level is a required subject Calculus BC is expected. Economics Micro and Economics Macro are counted together as a single two-semester subject.
