Lord Maurice Saatchi, founder of Saatchi & Saatchi and MC Saatchi, told us He only applied to one University. His message on the evening and now the world's shortest poem was 'LSE made me'. In my case, I did apply to other colleges since I never expected to get into to LSE, particularly to study Law, which is highly competitive.
Maurice Saatchi got a first in Economics back when that was a very hard accomplishment and of course He is one of the greatest minds in advertising, author of the Iconic 'Labour isn't working' Campaign that ushered Margaret Thatcher and the Conservative Party into power in 1979
