    I am a highly intelligent Jewish-American.

    I have a choice between St. Andrews or Edinburgh for philosophy and philosophy and greek.

    I realize that St. Andrews is consistently ranked higher than Edinburgh for philosophy. However, Edinburgh is ranked higher in overall (world) ratings.

    With this in mind, and that all I care about is academics...

    Which one should I choose? Could you help please...

    I am confused, lost and alone.

    edinburgh is ranked higher in world rankings based on it's research and postgraduate opportunities, which st andrews doesn't have. It's pretty much accepted that st andrews is the better undergrad university.

    St Andrews without a doubt.

    At risk of sounding repetitive, St Andrews has excelled lately in the league tables for Philosophy (and overall), and have gotten great research reports. Even if you want to go to the place where research is done (which is mainly what the world league tables rank), you're still better off going to St Andrews. Specifically in Philosophy "research", we have ranked at the top, or one of the top 2 or 3 in the UK.

    Of course, the course isn't the only thing you should be worried. But this is the philosophy forum after all.
