If I have the option of taking a general LLM between Cambridge, Yale, and Harvard, would it be crazy to choose Cambridge over the two US schools? I come from an Asian country where studying in the US is perceived as the pinnacle of quality education, with Harvard being the most famous brand name. I don't care much for reputation alone, but I just wanted to give you a background of where I'm coming from, as I am not very familiar with the relative quality of Oxbridge's postgrad law programs. I have done my research and believe Cambridge's LLM suits me better than Oxford's MJur. And the reason why I'm considering Cambridge over the US schools is that its LLM courses are for LLM students, unlike in the US where LLM students attend the same class as JD students.
As I mentioned, I'll be basing my decision not on reputation but on the quality of professors and students. The way I view it now is that the difference in terms of quality is hairline, and you can't go wrong either way. But I read somewhere that Oxbridge's graduate admissions standards are lower than the US big 3 (Yale, Harvard, Stanford). Not sure if there's any truth to this, but I wanted to hear the insights in this community, particularly those who have attended Oxbridge or the US big 3.
