UCL MSc Public Policy or Bristol Senior Status LawWatch
I speak and write well, and really enjoyed the academic writing I did as an undergrad. On one hand I have heard all my life that I would make a fantastic lawyer- I'm also really good at logic and reasoning and stuff and scored very well on the LNAT and the LSAT which I took to keep my options open in North America. On the other hand, I would absolutely love to study in London and going to UCL seems like a dream but I don't know if an MSc in Public Policy would be worth it and if it's a step down from Economics or Law. I don't want to go to UCL just because I have some idealised impression of it. My excitement about UCL is much more about going to UCL than the degree itself which I do not mind but I am unsure if it is my best option. Where I'm from, people with Economics degrees can find decently paying jobs but a very large number of Politics graduates from really good schools are jobless. However, I think Public Policy is a generally more respected and gives good job opportunities albeit mostly in the government or public sector compared to IR, for example. If the UCL degree isn't that great I also have an offer to do a coursework MSc Economics at a university comparable to UCL ranking-wise close to my home but it doesn't make me as excited as going to UCL and I honestly do not enjoy economics that much compared to politics and IR, although I'd happily do Economics at UCL. I was rejected by UCL Economics for reference. How would you rank my two options?
Please give me your honest opinion and I am sorry if I offended anyone, I really am not trying to be elitist or anything, I'm just very worried and confused about what to do as this involves a lot of my family's hard earned money and my time.
