I've been accepted to both Oxford and Cambridge's M.Phil. in International Relations and Politics, but am having trouble choosing which one to pick.
I have some money saved up, so with Cambridge I'd have to take out $20k in loans and with Oxford I'd have to take out $50k in loans. Cambridge is one year and Oxford is two, but Oxford has a more prestigious program and has a professor who specializes in my sub-field of international arbitration.
I want to either do a JD or PhD afterwards, so I am afraid of getting into too much debt with the Oxford program to be able to afford a top law school. So, I'm leaning towards the Cambridge program but have been extremely indecisive. Any thoughts?
My long-term goal is to help form/influence public policy on a high level.

The dilemma everyone holding both offers has is the slightly higher prestige from Oxford v the single year at Cambridge.
I'm not sure if you can track down any alumni and ask them for opinions - LinkedIn?
