NYU Stern or BSc Management at LSE for undergraduate finance?

I have just applied and been accepted to NYU and LSE for fall 2010 admission. My interest, as of now, is business, specifically finance. As far as I can tell, both these schools are excellent for this field; both are situated in great financial centres (London and NY), both provide many opportunities outside of academia such as internships, and both have good reputations. Although the program at LSE is a year shorter than that at Stern, I do not mind spending an extra year at NYU if it would mean a better education or better job prospects in the future. Also, although NYU has an active social scene, I do not mind missing out on that by going to LSE. So, as you can tell, I am in quite a dilemma. Which school would be better for me?
