    Hi, I declined Glasgow (Computer Science) and accepted Strathclyde (Computer Science) as an insurance and West of Scotland (Computing) as a firm. I recently got in contact with Glasgow, but I was too late to get the offer made to me again . So the questions I have are as follows:
    > I really like philosophy and I've been told that Glasgow would eventually allow me to combine it with Computer Science. Would the fact that I went to UWS or Strathclyde make them more reluctant to offer me such an oppertunity?
    >How different is computer science to computing? Computing seems to entail a lot of units that I probably wouldn't be interested in (i.e. multimedia development) but I have some social problems (I'm very shy) and going to UWS would be easier for me (although I would rather go to one of the Glasgow Unis)
    >Eventually I wouldn't mind teaching either RMPS or Computing to secondary school students, would such an offer still be available to me regardless?
    >What would you suggest if you were in my position?
