    Cambridge has already updated UCAS, the letter said they'll send me another pack in April concerning accommodation so I won't have to worry about it till then. Withdrawing options just takes away the fun



    Why not? Atm I'm more inclined to LSE as it looks nicer.
    Oh ok I see why you are waiting for UCL and Warwick then .

    And that;s what he meant, don't pick UCL as your 2nd choice,

    I wouldn't mind having the roles reversed :innocent:
    With the difference that they have much a greater range to choose from and probably wouldn't care that much but you can still get that feeling.
    I wish LSE and UCL were a bit quicker with giving me a decision.

    Yhh I love that adrenaline rush when you get a email from UCAS ... 'cept if it turns out to be a newsletter -_-

    Someone said UCL has another open day in February so we might not have to wait too long!

    And it's usually a newsletter...

    Well, that's true but they could as well not reply until March, I mean, the longer you wait, the more annoying it becomes.

    You think LSE looks nicer than UCL!? You don't mean aesthetically do you?

    I feel exactly the same, I was always going to firm LSE until I went to the open day, and didn't even end up applying. It lacked character and atmosphere for me. UCL seems more suited to me

    My experience was the complete opposite to yours, I loved LSE when I first went; everything just felt nice and polished whereas UCL felt a little rough :P. That said they're about the same course-wise, if you include the Year Abroad then UCL wins hands down.

    LSE is nice in some aspects I have to admit,especially the lecture series they host. My cousin applied for Maths and Econ there so hopefully will live in London with him (sharing an apartment) close by, so I'll be visiting LSE quite often as well!
    Having the chance to attend Columbia University while studying at UCL is unparalleled in my eyes. UCLA is one option as well as all my family lives in Los Angeles and aunty studied medicine there also:P

    I'm thinking I'm realistically going to get AAB if I'm lucky and I quite like Southampton uni. They want AAA or AAB plus A in EPQ... So I've got to do well in the EPQ

    I'm doing my extended project on shipbuilding in the UK. I've done a survey and if any of you could complete it I'd be really grateful!
