Got into UCLA for Econ and LSE for Philosophy and Economics, need help deciding where to go. Don't have much time, because UCLA's deposit deadline is May 1st and I got my LSE offer today -_-
So far, I've come up with the pros and cons:
Pros: better campus and weather, best food according to US News, more flexibility on changing majors (can double major, minor), more extracurricular fun stuff/more of a community feel I think + being in LA, guaranteed four years housing
Cons: don't know anyone in California, probably less reputable than LSE, four years instead of three, probably as expensive as London, not sure about immigration in USA vs UK
Pros: Well reputed for Econ-related courses, three years, UK immigration now lets you spend two years after graduating finding a job, being in London is good for networking, have friends in London and close family a train ride away
Cons: lack of flexibility/can't change/double major, very expensive living costs, a lack of "community feel" I'm told, worse weather, heard dorms are not very good
What do you guys think?
