These are made-up scenarios.

If you were British and you got offers from both Harvard - arguably the most prestigious and well-known American university ever - and UCL - one of Britain's top universities but not on the Harvard-Oxbridge level, would you choose to study abroad in America's Harvard, or would you choose to stay in Britain and attend a very fine, reputable Russel Group university in Britain even though it's not exactly the best of the best in the country?

Likewise, if you were American and you got offers from both Oxford - argyably the most prestigious and well-known British university ever - and the University of Columbia - one of America's top universities but not on the Oxbridge-Harvard level, would you choose to stay in America and attend a very fine, reputable Ivy League university in America even though it's not exactly the best of the best in the country?

I'm British and I would go to UCL. Harvard is incredibly expensive and not particularly reputed at undergraduate level.

Harvard not particularly reputed at undergraduate level? What a load of tosh.

Its pretty much THE best University in the world where prestige is concerned, at all levels.

Expensive? Yes. Not reputable at undergrad?...No.

I'd take Oxbridge just because it's cheaper.

Columbia and Harvard could end up being cheaper than UK option if you get financial aid.
