Have you researched the course content for either of those two courses? That would be a good place to start!

Either you have missed the deadline or have a year to think about it!

Just read about the course content, tutors, and whatnot!

I have to say, I knew two really quite excellent girls who wanted to do Law (aye, though I know not why!) and they both plumped for Cambridge and are thoroughly enjoying it.

No-less, as with other suggestions here, I would echo that you should look at the course content.

the content is quite different, in cambridge there is quite alot more freedom as you have 5 optional courses while in oxford you take only 2 optional courses and both administrative law and jurisprudence are compulsory wheras in cambridge they are optional. However, the range of optional modules available at each is different.....
In oxford your "important" exams are after 3 years where you are examined over all your work from the last term of your first year to the end of your degree, wheras in cambridge you take exams at the end of every year. Cambridge also gives an option to take a dissertation paper which is not available in oxford, overall you study 14 units in cambridge compared with 12 in oxford, however this does not mean that cambridge is less work.
For oxford the LNAT is important., for cambridge it will not be required next year....
there are many other differences, also between the towns as much as the courses, and you should try and make some sort of reasoonable choice, rest assured if you get in to either you will be convinced you made the right choice
