    Aye, you have to be at Stockton campus for two years, absolutely horrible dive that place, that's why it's less popular.

    Durham although a nice place to live, and to look at is, well... a personal acquired taste I think.:rolleyes:

    However Newcastle is, well, as has been said the greatest student city in the country, and even when you're done being a student, it is pretty damn amazing then too, fantastic place. :yep:

    I've applied! I put no preference regarding campus, but I think I would prefer Durham...
    Worried about UKCAT too though, I got 705; hope Newcastle/Durham don't have a silly cut-off this year like Sheffield probably will! :/

    Hmmm a bit strange people are getting interviewed at this early stage to be honest. Seeing as they use the UKCAT to rank applicants....so this must mean they have the scores?
