Ok, then in that case.... I assume you are doing something business related? Even if you aren't LSE has a high value name in the US (and the rest of the world) with a degree from LSE you might even be at an advantage compared to your colleagues that attended US universities, because it shows you in an international vein

let's hope I have an international vein- my career field is International Development that said, I've been accepted into MSc Social Policy & Development- it seems that many Americans haven't heard of LSE~ I'm hoping the one year program and lack of "name power" among many Americans here won't inhibit my job opps later down the line.... especially since I'm paying crap loads for it

Though 'many Americans' haven't heard of it, your prospective employers will have heard of it, trust me... if they haven't (depending on the job) then you don't want to work for that organization... I would put LSE on par with the Politics (and courses of that ilk) courses taught at Harvard's Kennedy School of Public Policy (or what ever its called) or Univ. of Georgetown, which are two of the best schools in the US in that area... You will be well served going to LSE...
