    Nearer to London
    Nice accommodation
    A lot warmer than in Scotland
    A bit more prestigious than Dundee
    Law school focuses more on Pro Bono which is good

    Never been to Scotland so I'm not sure about the environment and accommodation
    Not as prestigious as Reading

    Please help I can't really decide
    Hello! I have just firmed Leicester and put Dundee as insurance.
    I don't want to be risky as getting one of the Bs (for Economics) is now trickier than ever!
    Good luck with your application and thanks for your replies

    From what I know Dundee is especially prestigious and strong for Law. The accommodation is also very modern with a lot of new residences having been constructed in the last couple of years.

    I applied for both too, and had similar problems deciding on my choices (I applied for History though). Scotland is beautiful, but cold. I decided on Reading as a firm though for similar reasons that you've outlined but don't let that influence your decision

    Looks like you prefer Reading to me.
