    I know lancaster is great. But out of all 5 of my courses i've chosen thats probably the worst
    Agghhhhhh
    :eek: i've still only got my 2 offers :/
    Ooh that's unlucky! But I'm actually in a similar position. Lancaster is possibly the worst (economical) place for work experience. I need mental health issues in a DEPRIVED area. Somehow, I don't think Lancaster is deprived.
    Lancaster and where else? I have an awful memory, sorry!

    Mental health issues in a deprived area?! Erm, trust me, Lancaster has some pretty deprived areas [eg, brownie groups who haven't put up the charges in literally 10 years because the parents struggle to pay them as they are, despite their fees being a lot lower than other local groups] and quite a lot of care in the community residents... You might be surprised, but I'd imagine you would find quite a lot on the topic either in Lancaster or in the local area.

    Lancaster certainly has a lot of pretty deprived areas.

    Well i love the uni...its probably in the top 2 for location but i just dont really like the course
    Oh haha :/ You never know!
    I applied to heriot-watt, liverpool, lancaster, leeds and sheffield and only have offers so far from the first two....although i got a letter in the post from lancaster yesterday saying they were considering me so...
    How about you? What offers/other places have you got/applied to?

    Same, it's absolutely gorgeous. I'm going back in Feb for the open day, can't wait!!
    I got one from them before I got my email, so you might be in luck!
    Nothing from Dundee yet, but offers from the other four. I feel so much calmer about uni now it's insane. XD Where's your top choice?

    Lancashire as a whole has a lot of deprived areas. Only 30 minutes down the road you have preston which has some really bad parts and not that far away is morecombe.

    Ooh exciting times!!
    Wow! 4 offers! I have 2 Leeds i think is my top choice purely due to the whole package of course, campus and location but lancaster is definately top for campus!

    Ooh sounds good. I've got a couple in February, I'm not going to UEA, but I might go to the other three. Maybe Dundee too if I get an offer.
    Same for me. But best to go for the package deal in my opinion.

    Yeah, definitely! At least they give you ages to reply. I just found out I can't go to my Manchester one because I'm in France, so it'll be a bit difficult. :P
    One of my friends has five offers, it's ridiculous! XD
    Lancaster's amazing, which is why I'm going again, to make sure I'm not making the wrong choice with Hull.

    I was only given the option for one day for both Manchester and Lancaster. I'll have to check that out.
    Lol I know! She kept it really quiet too! I had no idea until she said she had five. XD
    Yeah, I need to look at the town too, I didn't get a chance to see it at all, even though I was there quite a long time. I looked around them all about the same amount, but it depended on how long my feet could hold up! XD I was absolutely knackered for the Leeds one, so I had to leave early and get an earlier train. I slept for about 15 hours when I got back, I was really tired!

    Oh. I was given quite a few for Lancaster (don't know about Manchester!!)...but then I was only given one for Sheffield so......
    Well good luck to her!!
    Yeah I think we're going to go back sometime......
    For Leeds and Liverpool I had to go somewhere in the afternoon so we were only there a few hours :/ hehe

    I really need to reply, it's not good, I keep forgetting that I haven't said I'm going.
    Well done on Sheffield if I haven't already said it!
    That sucks. :/ At least you'll get the chance for a whole day if you get an offer!
    Yeah lol, I'm good at sleeping for ages. XD 19 (or 22 - I can't remember) is my most. I tend to get really tired after shows and stuff.

    Yeah, the only accommodation I got to see was Hull. I liked it.
    ABB? That's surprising!! And really good. Is there not another one you could get with a lower offer? :s You don't have to accept two offers if you really want to go to Lancaster. I dunno though, you could always talk to someone at school about it.
