    None of them are targetted, however I would consider re-applying completely. If that option isn't available, I would go to Exeter, however you would have to compensate for the brand name, and that essentially involves more work, in contrast to someone at a target university.

    Could you elaborate? Its not that I care much about rankings, but Strathclyde ranks very well in Business and Finance.
    I guess that employers in the city probably prefer Exeter but I think Strathclyde would maybe provide me with better job prospects in Glasgow or Edinburgh.

    The courses that I am applying to are Msc Quantiative Finance or MSc Financial Mathematics. Im also waiting response from Manchester but im not very hopeful. If i got accepted I think I would stick with this one though.

    Well if you don't want to do high finance (you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere related to high finance in Glasgow or Edinburgh that are also willing to take on new grads), it doesn't matter to be honest. The whole prestige hierarchy effect drops significantly outside of high finance/consulting etc.. The big4 recruit a fair amount of Strathy grads for audit as far as I'm aware and they also tend to do alright for finance department grad schemes. It might be easier to get a job at a small-medium business in one of those cities as you'd already be in Scotland but larger companies for the most part are pretty location agnostic.

    I assumed, as you posted this in the IB&Consulting forum that you wanted advice geared towards those areas..

    Manchester, imo, would be the best choice out of the ones you'd have - if you get it.

    Strathclyde is only known for business, while Exeter has an excellent Business school, and the University is known much more in the UK and worldwide. Definitely Exeter is the better choice.
