    I am a recent law graduate with unconditional offers for University of Edinburgh and University of Glasgow for my masters in law.

    Whilst Edinburgh appears to win on "prestige" and being an all round picturesque city, I've lived in Bristol for four years and have been told the Glasgow has a more similar arts scene.

    The BIG issue is that Edinburgh is £3000 more in tuition fees. I'm a non native! So how much edge do you gain from being an Edinburgh alumni rather than a Glasgow one? £3000 worth?
    Do many people turn down Uni of Edinburgh for Glasgow? Or is that just not done?


    Glasgow does have a similar art scene, i.e. contemporary art, but will you be able to get involved in that during a one year law masters? Put bluntly, is the art community really a factor in where to do an LLM?! Edinburgh is the capital city so will have more (and bigger) law firms.

    Is there a particular reason you are applying to Scotland? You would be better off staying at Bristol as it has a better law department and is closer to London.
