heya - i know the LSE vs oxbridge thing has been done before - but i was wondering if one of them had an edge over the other in terms of job opps? i was specifically thinking of oxford but opinions on job opps from cam are also welcome

coz .. ASSUMING (and that is one BEEEEEG assumption i am making) i make the grades, i have to decide between LSE for econs and philosophy and oxford for PPE

also i was wondering if u knew wat jobs you could actually do with these degrees

thanx a lot in anticipation of your wonderfully helpful replies that will hopefully help me decide!!!

i am in the same boat - choosing between Oxford for Economics and Management, or LSE for just Economics - both AAA offers. I have chosen Oxford over LSE purely because of the course - offering a joint honours which appeals to me. In my opinion there isn't going to much difference between the two in terms of job prospects here in the UK. Internationally though Oxford may give you a slight advantage, although LSE is very well renowned in Asia in particular - so you can't go wrong really. If i were you i'd look at which course looks more appealing. Hope that helps!

p.s. which college have been offered a place at at Oxford?

thanx a lot! - yea u did help!- i probably would enjoy the oxford course more - haha provided i can cope with it that is...!

oh and i got my offer from Lady Margaret Hall in Oxford - actually was assigned it coz i submitted an open application... it's not the most academically wonderful or highly ranked (in fact if i remember correctly it's pretty far down the bottom!) but hey - was just really really happy that i didn't get st hilda's!!

It's fairly obvious really -- the idea of single-sex higher education takes some getting used to.

sorry - didn't mean to offend anyone - it's just that having been in a co-ed school all my life means that i would just rather go to a mixed college, just because i'm probably more used to it - i'm sure st. hilda's is a really nice college - i would just prefer not to go to a single -sex college - hope that explained it? - sorry again if i offended anyone...not at all my intention
