    Your bringing this all in circles now, its pathetic how insecure you are. We could have a constructive argument but you've chosen the immature *****y route thats pretty standard of a site designed for children. I've made my points clear and you continue to undermine the fact that UCL consistently ranks higher and has a higher rep.
    Oh Lord, praise the irony.

    If you actually have gone to university, you have kind of missed the growing up part. Hope you are still there so you've got some time left.

    Defeat? You pick and choose what you reply to, targetting some of my weaker points. Hardly call that a defeat, more like your own arrogance and insecurity.
    I've replied to each one of your posts.

    Again, I don't need to impress anyone here. I just don't want people reading this to be mislead.

    Interests change. That was the whole point of my argument. Business school is a placeholder for 'flexibility'. He's what, 17? He has no idea what he'll be doing when he's 21. He might go to a Spring Week in Sales and trading and realise he hates it.

    Yes you have but you've deliberately missed out large proportions of my posts. It's silly really.

    I think people are getting too caught up in winning points to actually realise all I'm stating is given the option of two prestigious choices it's reasonable to choose one based on the flexibility of pursuing alternate career options, given most 17 year olds will change their minds a few times before hitting 21. Business school was a placeholder for 'institutions that would prefer a branded candidate'. UCL gives more options in that regard.

    By the time OP will have worked and thought "oh I should go to business school", his professional record is what matters, not what uni he went to.

    Not really. They were all saying the same thing: league tables are amazeballs and surely, don't you think?, of course x is the reason for y. Responding to that by telling you what actually goes on in grad recruitment is responding to your points.

    Nah, I don't try to mislead anyone. There's a reason I get about 10+ PMs a day asking for advice or saying thanks for your advice.

    I stated 3 times already that business school was a placeholder. If you are unable to read, I have no further interest in discussing this with you.

    Got it. And it's good that you've got a plan. But you're also 17 and have no idea. Just saying. You might go do an internship and find it sucks or realise actually you really like consulting.. etc. Pinning your options on your ideas of what you wanna do at 17 with no experience seems facile.

    Yes, but you keep shying away from the fact that in such a competitive atmosphere, they're not going to dismiss the standard of the uni are they. You treat it as if all EMEA targets are treated the same which isnt the case.

    You're so pretentious its unreal.

    Guys, I'm thinking of unis to apply for next year and I was wondering which of these courses I should put as one of my choices. I don't want to risk getting zero offers by applying to too many competitive unis so I want to choose one of these.
    Aside from the chaos above

    You're allowed up to 5 UCAS (university) choices anyway, so you can apply to both courses relatively easily as they're likely to involve similar personal statements and applications. I won't speak on the merits of one over the other though
