    Hey,

    I got these two offers but not sure where to go.

    My problems is: I haven't any prior working experience(though I secure an internship for only 2 months this coming summer). It seems feasible to do a part-time finance related job in LSE while it's impossible in Oxford. And I think in Oxford I'm not competitive at all comparing those with average 2 yrs working experience.

    Do you think it will be a tragedy for me in seeking jobs if I choose Oxford? Or no matter where I decide to go it will be a tragedy.....Please help me if you know anything about the placement this year. Thanks a lot!

    Btw, I'm an international student.

    You'll probably be too busy to have a part time job wherever you go. What a choice to have though.

    Depends what you want to do and where you want to work. For IB in London LSE probably has the (slight) edge. Pretty much anything else and I'd personally go to Oxford.

    From yesterday I feel a little depressed because the future seems to be dim to some extent. Well, my family is not rich even in my home country, so thousands of pounds is a very very very heavy burden. Although my parents appear to be happy to afford all the expenses, I feel guilty actually. I wish to have the highest probability of getting a job in UK after graduation because salary there is much higher than in my home country. Then LSE better?

    Don't feel guilty. A degree from either uni and you'll probably be able to pay it back in your first year or two.

    To clarify: I wasn't saying that LSE was better. I just meant that some people regard LSE as better in the eyes of some IBs.

    But overall, I agree with the others. Definitely go to Oxford.

    Thank you guys and girls!!! You cheer me up so much! I feel better now XD ~~

    I LOVE Oxford! But it's normal to worry before making this life-long decision, right?

    But anyone can tell me something about the placement these years? Some statistics,examples,or something else? Especially for non-experience like me...Or what can I do now to improve my CV?

    I now in Netherlands but I'm Chinese. GPA 8.8/10, Toefl 110, GRE 690+800+3.5(Poor writing), Dual degree. Oxford may think I'm a research geek so they offered me a place. But I prefer working to researching.
