EU Law LL.M. in Netherlands


Hi everyone,
I' ve been accepted to Amsterdam (European Union Law LL.M.) , Rotterdam (International and European Union Law LL.M.), Utrecht (European Union Law LL.M.) and Leiden (European Law LL.M. - basic, not advanced).
Where should i go? A good LL.M. per se, as well as student life with parties etc. are equally important to me. Ideally I would love to choose one of the four above that combines amazing student life with parties etc and not so much pressure academic-wise, as well as a renowned LL.M. in European Law. Where do I find the best balance??
Thank you very much in advance.

Prestige wise Leiden is probably the best option. But you'll probably have the most fun in Amsterdam.

Thank you very much for your answer!
I get that Leiden gets the most recognition academic wise and Amsterdam provides the most opportunities to have fun, but which of the four above provides the best balance between those two things ?
Any personal experience/ friends' experience for any of the aforementioned programs?
