    Hey guys!

    I have a really confusing dilemma here. I'm a New Yorker with plans to pursue an MA in Journalism in the UK.

    I was dead-set on going to Brunel University (bought my plane ticket, signed off on a $48k loan -28,000 pounds-, applied for accommodation), but I got a notification from LJMU that I got a full tuition scholarship! Brunel gave me a scholarship as well, but the offer wasn't that great.

    My heart is with Brunel -- but that's only because, from what I've read, Brunel seems more reputable than LJMU. And the program is more hands-on, too. (There's a required work-placement and there are guest lecturers, plus required trips to BBC & other news giants). LJMU does not require these.

    From a non-biased opinion, what do you think I should do? Is Brunel really that reputable? Or should I cancel everything and go for LJMU?:confused:

    Thanks in advance!
