    I am a student from the US, and have been accepted to both LSE and Imperial for their MSc Management programs.

    My hesitation to choose comes from a financial standpoint: Imperial has offered a £10,000 scholarship, and the program is only one year. On the other hand, LSE hasn't offered anything yet, and the program is 2 years, doubling the price.

    LSE is my first choice, and I think I would be much happier there (I also plan to do CEMS), but I'd have to take out everything in loans and don't know if it's worth that.

    Does anyone know about LSE finanancial aid and scholarships? And do you think it's worth the price tag?

    Many thanks!

    The LSE programme is more comprehensive and closer to the MBA - it's also a better brand when you return to the US. The price difference is significant I agree - I do think it's worth it if you plan to return to the US, maybe less if you stay in the UK.
