    Right, thank you for the advice.
    But **** yourself for being such a obnoxious prick You must be a lot of fun at parties, but I guess you don't really get invited to many.
    The thing is that Newcastle is definitely not all those things. Good uni, but nowhere near the top end of the spectrum.

    I can imagine so, I love the city to be honest, more then London, so when it comes to deciding between the two, I am trying to outweigh the difference in the quality of each law school and its reputation

    Offers from KCL, Manchester and Newcastle. I know KCL is superior as a law school, but I love Newcastle so much that I am leaning towards firming it. I just don't know how a LLB from Newcastle would be viewed in contrast

    Well, I would personally choose KCL any day of the week - by a far margin. If it were between two schools with similar reputations, I'd say just go to the one with the best student life overall (i.e. regarding the city and whatnot).

    Here, however, the difference is not that small.

    You should of course consider whether you can achieve the A*AA KCL asks instead of the AAA that Newcastle does (and the much higher chance to accept you if you drop below that).

    All withdrawing does it ensure you will never get an offer from that Uni.

    You have nothing to lose by waiting.

    Thinking about withdrawing from Nottingham just because it's only my third choice/potential insurance depending on the offer. I also want to firm my place at my first choice so I can apply for accommodation as soon as it opens. If Nottingham still hasn't replied by the end of the month then I don't see much point in waiting and then missing the opening of accommodation at my first choice.

    If you definitely aren't putting it as a firm/insurance choice then you might as well withdraw. No point in waiting if the offer wont make a difference to your choices.
