I'm currently suffering a (nice) dilemma and am looking to all sources for help. A bit of background: I'm in the process of applying to Law schools for entry onto LLM's (basically, one year taught postgraduate law degrees), and have received two replies - one from the Law school I'm just about to complete my undergraduate law degree at (King's College London), and one from the London School of Economics. The dilemma is this - I'm really in two minds about which one to accept. I've really enjoyed my time where I am now, and the I know for sure that the tutors who teach the area I want to specialise in are not only very competent and skilled, but very nice people as well. However, I've always wanted to complete research in the US after my LLM, and I've heard that the LSE is very well regarded over there. I know most Americans probably haven't heard of any university outside of Oxbridge (much like most Brits don't know of any universities outside of the Ivy League), but I was wondering what Americans who have some knowledge of the university system over here actually thought of its reputation? If you are somehow connected to academia, law or the social sciences, even better! The fact that the fee's at the LSE are almost £4,000 more than where I am now makes the decision even harder Thanks for your help!
