    Hey guys,

    I currently have offers from both Bristol and Nottingham to study Economics with Econometrics. Many people have told me that these two unis have very little difference between them when pursuing a career in investment banking or a hedge fund, and that extra-curriculars and networking are more important. However, would anybody object to this and recommend one over the other?

    Thanks for reading!

    Neither are targets for investment banks. Did you apply to Oxbridge/LSE/Warwick/UCL?

    It's not a big deal. And I would pick Bristol it is still highly regarded.

    Maths - A
    Economics - B
    Business Studies - B

    And indeed I dropped Politics in which I got a D!
