UCL, Queen Mary or Edinburgh?


Hey guys!
I really need a piece of advice: I have been accepted to study a LLM at UCL, Queen Mary and Edinburgh, but I am unsure of which to choose. I mainly want to study Competition Law.
Which is your experience with these universities and what would you advise me?
I don't have preferences regarding living in London or Edinburgh :)
Thank you!

I know there're both really good Universitys. You should check out the programs and see which ones attract you most!!!
I know living in London is great (never been to Edinburgh although I believe it's way to cold for human life :P) but very expensive. So it really comes down to what modules you want to take and if you really care about where you'll be living!
ps. I'll be going to QM for an LLM in IP law!

Really? That is great!
But what do you think of UCL? I received their offer this morning, so I have to take them into account too...

Oh my! also UCL??the decision is getting harder and harder it seems :D I know that UCL is one of the most highly rated Universities in London/Uk especially for Law school. On the other hand, law rankings don't really apply to the LLM programs....if you check you the ranking of most popular LLM programs on this web site you'll see that QM is way above UCL and Cambridge! I guess there're all really good and that you can only choose based on each single program! Unfortunately I don't know anything about which is better for Competition law.

You are totally right, it is getting harder and harder! You are right and I am totally confused :) I think I will wait for the result of the QM scholarships and make a decision afterwards. Good luck to you and have a great time in Paris

From what was stated. It seems obvious what uni you are leaning towards and it is not Edinburgh. However you seek justification from somebody else to gratify your decision.

Have fun at UCL.

Well, your profile picture really matches your comment :)) If I would have looked for justifications from somebody else to gratify my decisions, I would not have went to Law school :) And if that would have been the case anyway, I would have asked my parents who will be the ones paying for my studies in the end. In any case, even an obvious "leaning" towards a certain university means...only that, leaning. It doesn't mean I feel capable of choosing, but it only means I have an idea. Try to be of good faith and take into account that...I might be a foreigner...never studied in any of these institutions...have no idea how they are like except for the ranking...am a bit confused and don't know what to choose, would you? Does it sound plausible? :))
By the way, have you got any experience with any of these universities...or a personal recommendation?
Have a lovely day!
