    Well I'm just sat here trying to comprehend why I'm only in the "maybe" pile for Nottingham L100 when Bath, arguably as good/slightly better gave me an offer a couple of days after receiving my application.

    It's frustrating because if I received an AAA offer from them (as a few on here have), I'd be able to have a really good insurance lined up (in case I missed the A*).

    Confused. I know I sound big headed but I have a PS with a ton of relevant EC, strong preds (A*A*A) and AS grades, a relevant EPQ + additional FM AS this summer. I chose Nottingham (for one reason) because I thought I stood a fairly good chance of receiving an offer to firm with if Bath didn't want me.

    Ugh. At least I haven't definitely been rejected yet. I was really hoping on something to insure with, though...

    I would pick Economics and International Economics at Nottingham, you would probably have an okay chance of changing to L100 if you wanted to and Nottingham has a better reputation for Economics

    Personally Nottingham. The social life is apparently very good and they have a stronger Econ department imo.

    What do you guys think about the fact that Nottingham/Bristol are far away from London and can therefore limit your links/ contacts/ work experience within the finance industry! Any ideas? I am slightly worried

    To reply to both of your posts, I received the AAA offer yday and everything I've heard from notts seems only good. The problem is job prospects as I've also got an offer from UCL which could be better for future jobs. Any suggestions?

    Are you an international student?
    Because they only offer AAA to International students.

    And considering London vs Nottingham, London obviously has a huge benefit for obvious reasons. I have also applied to UCL, but waiting for a reply .

    UCL will undoubtedly be my first choice mainly because of its location

    how do you know you're on the maybe pile?

    however i think im in the same situation as you bud - i got an offer from Bath only a couple of weeks after they got my application, and Nottingham still haven't said anything to me yet haha - they gave one of my mates an offer for Economics yesterday and his application was definitely worse than mine haha

    I'm emailing back and forth with their admissions tutor at the moment. Two weeks until a final decision, apparently.
