My dream uni is actually my firm choice
And its the university of Leicester.
I cant even begin to describe how much I loved it both times I visited. Everything about it was amazing, and I just felt completely relaxed and at home there. There was nothing I could fault about it.
Reputation, league tables and all that doesnt really mean anything to me which is why ive chosen a 'normal' uni rather than a high status one.
To me uni is about going somewhere that you will feel happy not somewhere where you go just so you can say 'I go to Cambridge' or whatever.
If I said Manchester over Cambridge noone would believe me. But it's true, Manchester would be my dream uni. I love it here, the work's at the right level where I'm not struggling but neither am I cruising, the people and the place is great, and the atmosphere...damnit, I just love it here.
Summer cannot be over quickly enough.
Cambridge I think on reflection would be too much work for me and not enough fun. It may be a very pretty place, but I like the feel of Manchester so much more.
My dream school before was Princeton but I did not apply because I though I would never get it anyway. Surprisingly, I got into some top ivies (columbia, UPenn and Dartmouth) plus some top private schools such Duke,Amherst and Johns Hopkins. The biggest surprises I got that were related to applying to schools were: 1. I got into Stanford (which I never expected) and 2. I was rejected at UC Berkeley. I went to Stanford since it was the clear best school among the schools where I got in, and I never fancy going to big public schools in the US anyway.
In the UK my dream schools were/are: Cambridge, St Andrews and Warwick.
hmm.... it would really be cambridge more than oxford , because ive seen one of my maths teacher she went to oxford and hell i never wanna turn out like her . too posh to be like that all the time .
however although its my dream uni , i think ill prfer going to the one im applying for . much closer thats why hehe.
