    Neither will get you in a "big money making industry" especially if your talking of banking and certainly not consultancy, however you can make up with it with placements and a masters at a top 5 but if your able to go to a higher ranked uni now go for it.

    To give you some hope, i have a friend who did Economics at Aston (grad 2008) and this week secured a middle office job at UBS paying 36k first yr + small bonus and another friend who graduated from RH 3 yrs and is on a management trainee scheme with Network Rail who paid for him to do a masters at Warwick near their base and hes now on 45k, so depending on your ambitions money wise everything is possible.

    Id choose Royal Holloway outa the 2.
    how did your friend get network rail to pay for his masters and how long does he have to work for them??

    also thanks for your opinion, i know there not the best but there my 2 real options as birmingham rejected me and im still waiting on a reply from LSE which is most likley to be a rejection, so its either these two or surrey university. Anyone else got some more opinions they care to share?
