    He lives there! However, he said 'apparently' when I was talking to him, so I'm not sure
    Ahh right, sorry for seeming so cynical! Did he saying anything about living in Clifton generally?

    Haha don't worry about it lol Well, I went to visit him and stayed over and it was great imo didn't get a chance to go clubbing, bu his kitchen/flat mates were discussing a couple of different places to go with some excitement so I assume that kind of stuff is relatively available and good... As a place, Clifton is incredibly beautiful, and great for cycling (steep hills)- I'm sure you know how beautiful Avon Gorge is as well- and due to basically being the city centre, it has a Tesco's, Waitrose, Costa's etc etc and if your mates want to visit you by coach, the coach stops less than 5 minutes away from Manor Hall... Just great in general, launderette very close, everything within walking distance, plenty of restaurants(franchise stuff like ASK Italian, Nando's and more fancy stuff too)...

    Only thing I had to walk for about 20 minutes (nearer to the UWE part of Bristol) to find a fry-up place, although you wouldn't need that much as a student as you'd probably only be able to cook a fry-up lol

    Which accommodation are you thinking of? Possible Durdham? I don't know. I'd like self-catered with an ensuite.

    I'll be studying Law ! I like the sound of University Hall purely because it has a better social life, I would prefer Durdham but have heard its quiet? Does anyone know if this is true?

    Also considering Goldney :/ too many decisions!

    I'm not sure whether to firm Bristol or York for law. I guess I'll have to go see them again. Any suggestions?

    I'm a bit biased here, considering i'm firming Bristol for Law, but Bristol's Law School is far more established

    Yeah that is swaying me towards Bristol but I like the course structure in York. I asked a judge friend which to go to out of Warwick, Bristol and York and he said Bristol so i'm kinda swaying towards there at the moment.

    York is a great university but it's Law school has only been running for a very, very short amount of time, thus it's lack of inclusion on league tables. The course looks interesting and i'm sure in time it'll become very established but in Law, given how competitive the environment is when applying for TCs etc., Bristol is a far safer bet.

    Also Bristol is awesome :thumbsup:

    I think I probably will end up firming Bristol, thanks!! I guess I just have to think it over really carefully, weighing up the pros and cons of each.

    Which accommodation are you thinking of? UH, Goldney or Manor Hall. Torn between choosing Stoke Bishop or Clifton. Don't want to miss out on anything!

    I've got an offer from Bristol as well, but can't decide between Bristol and Durham?

    Ouch, very tough choice for you. I'd say Bristol as a city edges it over Durham, but then again, Durham is amazing for History, ranked 1st or 2nd this year?

    If you're not used to small places like Durham that would be a detriment also. I'll firm Bristol, just don't know when! :P

    Where else did you apply?

    I'm having same problem, except Imperial is also a contender. Not for history mind.

    Oxford, got rejected after being pooled so reapllication is still an option for me;
    St Andrew's, haven't heard, don't really care either way
    Exeter, AAA
    Bristol, AAA
    Durham, AA

    Certainly a conundrum! What about you?

    Durham AA?

    I applied to, and received offers from Bristol, Nottingham, Southampton, Leicester and Reading.

    I'm not really in any sort of uncertainty, I just can't actually decline any of my offers aha.

    Three very good unis on your list; Exeter, Durham and Bristol are all top class. Any of those and you will have great prospects.
