    Hey

    I have offers from LSE and UCL to study LLB Law starting in 2011. I'm still stuck in deciding between the two.

    I am considering staying in academia beyond my LLB, and I would like to apply to Oxford to do the postgraduate BCL.

    Which out of LSE and UCL do you think would put me in a better position for this?

    Thanks

    It's not the university that puts you in a strong position, you do, so you need to decide which course interests you most. Doing a course that doesn't interest you will probably result in lower grades than you might have got if it did.

    To get on the BCL from anywhere your position will be strongest if you are heading for a good First. I understand the BCL is highly competitive to get into, so anything less is not likely to be enough, regardless of which university you are coming from. Believe it or not, Oxford does accept postgrads from universities outside the 'top ten'. What they are looking for above everything else is academic potential - and some people are slow starters. Being an LSE or UCL graduate does not of itself increase your chances of success.
