    that is IF i am even going to cambridge.
    IF i get into local medicine, then no more cambridge. maybe for specialisation.

    Well, yeah.

    Everything else = Serve and ORD before studying.

    You mean NUS?

    You're seriously considering to give up Cambridge for NUS??? :confused: Is it because of the course or the scholarship?

    He's giving up Cambridge only if he gets into medicine in NUS.. which is a wise choice if he wants to do the course.

    If you want to be a doctor, I guess. But that wud be a real waste of a cambridge offer.

    NUS medicine is pretty good. The students are all top calibre. i think the average standard is better than cambridge.

    maybe that's an overstatement but the course is good and rigourous plus the students are of good quality (i.e. most are super muggers as am i.)

    So what do you guys reckon about the NUS Law/Econs Double Hons? Thats my first choice here. Most people say its a good course if I get it but I would still prefer Cam/Imperial.

    It's obviously an exclusive and good course, but has a very limited number of places. Nutter on this board received a place to do the double degree (law/econs) at NUS, but he also received an offer to do PPE @ Oxford, so he's heading there now.

    it's obvious which is the more appealing one.

    Just got my letter from PSC. As expected, a firm rejection. I wonder why they always like to say they're sorry when they actually aren't.
