LSE vs Oxf MJuris - advice needed


flims
Hey everybody. I've been agonizing about this for quite a while all alone and finally thought to ask for a piece of advice:)

I am interested in corporate/commercial law. I have been more inclinde to accept the offer from Oxford, but since receiving it have heard so many different things: Oxf is too theoretical, LSE is more practical. Oxf is old fationed (read - outdated), LSE is a cutting-edge research institution, etc.

Any thoughts/ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks a lot, bigdave. what i want is excellent professors, good classes, interesting classmates and a fun year (I do know both schools will make me work pretty hard, but hope to be able to enjoy it anyway:)) I am pretty sure both LSE and Oxford can deliver it all and more, but I also want to be certain that I have chosen the right school and won't regret not going to the other one. When I had applied, I preffered Oxford and was quite certain about it. However, LSE also seems to be a great place to be. So, I am lost...

remember LSE is in London so you need to look into other aspects like cost of living. Oxford is based on a collegiate system so look into what college you have allocated and go on their website and look what they will offer you. Also I know in the undergraduate realm that some companies only accept Oxford graduates so that might be the same. You might want to look into the options that both offer. It could be that LSE offer the type of offers you want to study in which case that is always a big plus. If there is any other way I can held let me know :)

Thanks hat-trick. I've read some bits from their works and was fascinated (company law by Prof Davies and Takeovers in US & UK by Prof Armour). To have tutorials with any of them would be great. I just hope they won't be taking sabbaticals next year:)))
