I've been offered a place for the MSc Finance at the University of St Andrews (with the option to change to the MSc International Strategy & Economics within the first two weeks)!
What do you think? Should I accept the offer?
What is the reputation of the program/university?
What companies recruit from St Andrews? I'm especially interested in Management Consultancies or IBs (M&A)...
I also have applications pending for Oxford (MSc Financial Economics), Cambridge (MPhil Finance) and LSE (MSc Accounting & Finance/MSc Finance & Economics) - GMAT 700; 4 yrs. work exp. @ MNC; first degree in International Management (with emphasis on finance) from a German university (all grades >90%) - do I stand a chance?

The economics and international relations departments at St Andrews are excellent. I certainly would consider accepting the offer.
In my experience all the major companies recruit from St Andrews certainly when I was there at any rate!

you should stand a chance in getting into your other choices. I think St Andrews is an excellent university, but it depends whether you like the location or not. Oxbridge is obviously more well known and also LSE has the advantage of being in London, so I think you should wait for all the offers to come through and decide. I think companies, esp IBs, prefer Oxbridge and LSE and may give you an edge if you apply to them with such degrees.
