    I got a conditional offer for the diagnostic pathway. I'm really unsure of wheather to accept it though, as I hadn't expected to get it (applied on a whim) and have accepted a place at Falmouth, which I can cancel, just won't get my deposit back. I'm really confused about where to go, everyones telling me different things and I like both places and courses equally, but I keep hearing nasty things about CSM and worry that I'd be really out of the way in Falmouth. I don't want to get on a course and hate it! Anyone else having this kind of trouble?

    I applied to those two courses at CSM and Falmouth as well At first i couldn't decide, but after visiting both i decided CSM.. personally i found the standard of the work ridiculously better at CSM, and i know that Falmouth is a very very relaxed year and being so far out of the way people rarely leave... the atmospheres are so different and it depends what kind of year you want to have really. The good thing about Falmouth is that the tutor relationships are really good and they act a lot more like school art teachers, because of the small numbers on the course. When i went to my Falmouth Interview they were very *****y about CSM saying it rides on its reputation etc... but it does have a good reputation for a reason! i chose CSM in the end because i think London is just a much more exciting place and i have heard a lot of people say negative things about Falmouth being out of the way and stuff.

    Yeah I did think that if I went to Falmouth for foundation I'd get stuck there, and I don't really think I could handle much more than a year as it so small, its lovely, but London seems more convenient. The Falmouth people were *****y at my interview too! And I've had teachers telling me I'm more "suited" to Falmouth, but they are my teachers and don't REALLY know me. Its so confusing!

    I'm so glad I got into to CSM but am really worried about the bad things I have heard, like lack of space, run down facilities that you have to book way ahead of time to use due to so many people wanting to use them too and so little time with tutors. But it does have a good reputation which surely it wouldn't have if it were seriously as bad as some of the things you hear?!

    Do any of you guys no anyone who has/ is doing their foundation at CSM, have they found the negitive things to be true? How are they finding it?
