Well the scousers rejected me
Whilst I saw many flaws against applying to Cambridge: Very far away from home, such a theory based course, didn't particualrily like Cambridge itself.. (it was alright, just a bit underwhelming tbh!) And to me the vet school itself looked a bit tired; it seemed to me that there wasn't the recent investment in it, whilst other vet schools were ploughing money in; see Notts, Bristol, RVC Hawkshead etc.
Pro's of Bristol: Near home, lots of investment, very nice area.
Cons: Lost some of it's reputation in recent years.. it'll take time to regain it fully, I had a Nottingham offer
Pro's of RVC: Recognized by just about every veterinary association, interesting course structure (spiral strucure.. the wonderful schizopear can tell you more about that
Cons: I couldn't live in Camden.... I'm too much of a country boy
, also one of my interviewers - shouted at me for not being observant enough... it didn't really appeal me much to the Uni
I can't say anything about the Scottish uni's or Dublin, as I haven't gone around them... far too far from home for me... literally 12hrs traveling at the very least. However, I have/had 2 family members at Glasgow vet school, they absolutely loved it
Pro's of Notts: New course - revolutionary, new buildings, a desire to improve, basically breath taking!!!!!!!
Cons: None that I can see
Tbh, whatever vet school you go to, you shall be a terrific vet
Now I'm off to worry about results
