Haha, the OP's attitude is getting more and more crazy/obnoxious. Also some things don't quite make sense. Isn't starting until September, but has "already taken care of parking"?!
I don't think I have insulted anyone, or the city of London, or the UK per se... so, don't try being clever Alexander, because you sound obnoxious (not to say anything worse...)
When I say I have already taken care of parking, I mean that I have checked which parking facility is the closest to the institution, have exchange a couple of emails with them clearing some things out (space, charges, etc) and have made up my mind... it doesn't necessarily mean that I have already "book" a place and I already pay for it, or whatever else you may have in your mind... no wonder some people don't pass the LPC, if they think that way... (a hint for you Alexander... don't EVER assume a fact; you should already know that if you study law ;-) ) I live by "procrastination=cancellatio n" and so I prefer to take care of things way ahead of time.
Even though I don't know your age (I mean all of you; don't take it personally), or what the average age of LPC students are, I do not consider myself just a student... again without wanting to insult any of you at all, what I mean by that is that I'm not a 25 year old student that still lives in his "student years"... been there, done that... I'm a working professional (for some years now), with a PhD in Finance and one in Law, who decided to move to the UK (for personal reasons) and become a practicing solicitor. I'm saying that, just to let you know that I'm not someone that is interested in "sharing" a cheap student accommodation, etc, etc... I'm moving to London with my wife and dog, so I'm looking at something different that most of you I guess. The point is not to get what you would expect one to want, but to get info on points I've asked... that's the point of this board anyways, isn't it?
That's why I'm looking for a decent place, with a garden (even if small), etc... If I have to drive 30 or so minutes out of London in order to find such a place, in a good price (good price of course is again subjective), I will do so. So, clear with that for those with no brains; luckily they seem to be very few!
Ok, let's get to the point now. I understand what most of you say/comment about using the tube/train etc... I don't know, I might even think it's the "proper" way to move around London, after living there for some time... it's true however that I will try to avoid it as much as possible! It's ok I guess when you're young, and you mess around, and don't care much about being in a crowded place etc (as I used to be when younger), but once you grow older, you prefer your convenience than anything else... Of course, as you say, if it will take me 1 hour to drive 10 miles, I might even think it's not worth it, and decide to take tube/trains, etc... but I read somewhere that during the morning rush hour, in order to actually get into the tube/train, you may have to spend 10-15 minutes! Honestly, I don't know if it's true or not, but I'm not "willing" to do that... can't I use this time to drive for example? Does it sound so illogical? I guess only time will show...
So, let me ask you this... what about Enfield? I was told that I will be able to find a place as the one asking, in around that area... is it a safe, nice neighborhood?
Many thanks gentlemen and ladies
