Chance US student for PPE at Oxford/LSE/UCL/KCL

Hello! I'm a student from the US and I'm applying to PPE at the schools listed above. I have 5's on AP Micro, Macro, US History, Calc AB, Spanish Lang, and English Lang / 750+ on chem, world history, math II and physics subject tests / a 1550 SAT. Also, I've received A's on 3 political science / econ related classes that I took at a local university over the summer AND have predicted 5's for 5 more AP's, including Calc BC and AP US Gov. Based on purely academics/grades (not including my personal reading, future performance on the TSA, or personal statement- all of which I have prepped for/worked on A LOT; not getting into detail, but I'm well prepared in all those 3 categories), what are my chances for getting into these schools?

    KCL & UCL pretty certain.
    LSE solid odds, but bet on an offer conditional on your marks on BC & US Gov & 1 more of your senior year APs.
    Oxford, no way to tell. You (very obviously) meet the stats, but the TSA score is a key factor in shortlisting for interview invites. IF you get to interview you (statistically) have about a 1 in 3 chance but there is absolutely no way to predict how that will go and it is make or break.

    I’d be slightly less optimistic about UCL, still a strong chance but not certain, and I think they might want Calc BC. Agree KCL should be unconditional and quick. Hard to call LSE (do you realize it’s a 4 year course unlike the others?) and Oxford chances will depend on the TSA and interview (make sure you go to that in person, note you only get 2 weeks notice so booking a plane ticket with miles now and then canceling if you don’t go is a good solution if you have that option).

    I'd replace UCL with UEdinburgh and St Andrews. Both in Scotland, which is very interesting from the PPE perspective right now.
