    Hey guys!

    I got a conditional offer to study Law at Queen Mary but I have heard that it is not such a prestigious university and doesn't have such a great reputation as other more established universities.

    Can anyone give me some advice as to whether I should pick another university as m firm?

    My oldman was from there (then Queen Mary College) nearly 30 yrs ago but in Econ & Politics. Clearly there'll always be this stigma that lads or lasses from QMUL are IC/LSE/KCL/UCL rejects...But QMUL ve always been strong in Law and Medi/Dental...and to a lesser degree Economics too. My oldman got a City job (Trainee trader on LIFFE with a traditional broker) almost immediately after graduation. He went on to work in HK for Merrill Lynch, NatWest, Nomura in Asian equities...now he's a senior lad with a private equity firm.

    Thanks for sharing! Yeah I got rejected from UCL, which is why I am considering firming Queen Mary and after your response I feel more confident in doing it.
