Got into Columbia Law school (LLM) and Oxford (non-law MsC) - which one is better?

I don't know what I want to do really.

Help me!

What is the actual Oxford degree if it's non-law?

Well figure it out, and choose accordingly. There's a fairly big difference between these universities in both the courses and the location (what's the Oxford postgrad on?)

It's just an MsC - but nothing law related. Something interest related. But I'm torn between the 2 as I don't know what I want to do. Presumably work in the UK?

Which one has a better reputation? Would Columbia be the "UCL" of USA?

Why don't you just tell us what the MSc is in??

Oh and it would help if you told us what you want to do afterwards.

In terms of global reputation, Oxford is typically better, although it will depend upon the subject. I'd pick the subject that you're most interested in though.

Don't be silly mate; if you truly enjoy Law and if you're open to work in the US, go to Columbia Law School. In the US, if you graduate from a top 20 law school you're set for life.

Beware of the debt though, the tuition must be insane, and you'll need to work your ass off.

Stop avoiding the question about what you would be studying at Oxford. It is materially relevant to the initial debate over which to choose. If you're looking for a "which looks better on my CV for applying to Goldman Sachs" then it literally doesn't matter and this thread is a pointless exercise in you looking for gratification that you have offers from two "top" universities.

If you want to be a lawyer do the LLM. If you don't intend on practicing or teaching law, don't. Whether to do the MSc is another question entirely which cannot be answered because of your obstinate refusal for some unknown reason to actually provide the necessary information.

You should really make your own thread, but as OP is being willfully obstructive to their own detriment:

In your case, these are fairly different programmes. The former would be a good basis if you intend to enter e.g., civil service training including diplomacy, politics or public administration, economic and policy analysis roles focusing on domestic and international relations side of things (i.e., not specifically developing economics or policy/relations with e.g. BRIC, although it isnt a bad choice if the focus is primarily on BRIC and developed economies and businesses, as opposed to a more mixed portfolio with BRIC and developing areas)

The latter is more specialized and is particularly relevant if you're interest in working for NGOs, international finance/investment firms specializing in developing economics or BRIC businesses, academia, or economic and policy analysis roles focusing on developing economics

So the answer is, the one that suits your purposes better. This is also strictly speaking true for OP.

Thank you I'll get my own thread, I am more interested in developing economics, so I am guessing Oxford is the better shout. Thank you very much for your reply.
