Hey guys, bit of advice needed if possible...
Basically I have an offer from QM for history and politics (which im chuffed about) but i dont know whether i want to go or not...
Ive applied to 4 other really respecable unis (LSE, UCL, Warwick and York) and im really concerned that QM doesn't match up to them. Im worried that, despite high grade requirements, the Uni just isn't prestigious enough to employers. Furthermore I have no idea about the area/uni itself. I live up north so will have one chance to visit (1st of feb) so i will really have just an afternoon at the open day to decide... AND, i know that there are some awesome departments, e.g law, how do history/politics match up?
In short, if someone could sell me QM i would be amazingly grateful! I love the idea of a campus in london, and i have heard loads of good things about the uni, but i just have a few worries. If anyone could tell me a bit more about why i should go it would be amazing!
Thanks for reading!
EDIT: why the neg? hahaha, please someone explain....

It basically has to apply and get the permission of the other Russell Group unis. However it depends on whether QMUL thinks that it's worthwhile or whether it's purposes would be best suited in the 1994. Both are just lobbying/co-operation groups anyways, there's no formal rules about their make up. LSE jumped from the 1994 to the Russell a few years back based just on it's rep (it actually has a relatively small research income because of it's specialisation). It's the newspapers that have made the effort to turn the Russell into some kind of UK version of the Ivy League + Public Ivys.

I know the law department is really strong atm too, 4th according to The Guardian. But I agree with the prestige thing that it currently isn't as highly regarded as UCL ect. But it is still University of London as mention above and it has the highest research levels of non-Russel Group uni's anyway. So it may even be elevated to Russel Group status soon, but I'm not sure how that system works anyway.
Brick Lane is just down the road aswell if you're into that sort of thing OP.
Oh and there seems to be alot of good curry houses on Mile End road
