Thanks. I think I should take a masters first just for my own sake, but it's good to know my undergrad will be looked favourably upon.
Do you guys know to what extent the reputation of the people giving my reference will matter for European masters? Obviously I feel that this is a weak point of mine since I don't have any current academics giving my references, but I feel I can get them to say nice things!
I think top 5% from Oxford BA and distinction in Law are already enough. letter of recommendation writers should primarily be your BA supervisor and others in your economics department. What matters is they can write very good things about you. Getting the one who know you best to write is more important than big names. But it will be better if the one knowing you best is also a big name.
Take my case as an example. I'm from a worldwide unknown school and my supervisors are brand-new PhD graduates. Still, I get into MSc in Economics at LSE. It is more yourself and what letter of recommendation writers say about you than their name.
