    Silly Doubt = In or At?

    I am ashamed because I have such a silly doubt and nobody could ever explain me the answer.
    Well, what is the different between AT and IN, when it comes to refer to places?

    For example:
    I STUDY AT THE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE INSTITUTE
    or
    I STUDY IN THE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE INSTITUTE

    Which one is right?
    I mean, should I use AT when the place is speciefied and IN when it is not (park, work, school).
    Or is it the opposite?

    Thanx

    You study in the USA/Japan/UK (country)
    You study at UCLA/the Boston Institute/the MIT (specific place)
    You study in law/science/accounting (major)
