This thread has not been started by you, perhaps you should take your views elswhere? I appreciate your advice, but I do not appreciate your attitude towards other posters.

Sorry, but this is an unhelpful contribution. I don't mean to offend, but picking everyone else's posts apart when they are just trying to contribute is not appreciated. I do understand that the post was, not entirely relevant, but let's play nicely children?
I'm thinking all of this proves you are definately mature enough to cope with uni life and sensible enough

Granted, but is going to stirling necessarily the right path if she intends to practise in England? And if she doesn't agree with this fact - why bother making the thread in the first place?

You have succeeded in offending both myself and various other posters. Please do not post again. Thankyou for your previous contributions but your advice is no longer needed or wanted as I have made my own decision with the blessing of my family. My intentions are my own, and to be quite honest your replies with reguards to my decisions in the past few posts you have made have been frankly offensive.
I "bothered" to create this thread to see other people's opinions on whether sixteen is an acceptable age to go to University, not their opinions on my chosen University or my motivation for choosing that particular University, that was why I did not mention my chosen place of education in my origonal post.

Thankyou again for your contribution on a whole.
Good luck in your future studies or career.

Personally I've never understood the doctrine of fast-tracking very intelligent people through the educational system. If we had an entirely different approach to education in this country then it might work - but as it happens, we have a system which is based entirely upon school years. Education is about more than just academic box-ticking - it's also about personal and pastoral development. In the grand scheme of things, what benefit is gained from getting someone through school and uni a couple of years earlier when their personal development may suffer as a result? I often wonder whether it is simply because institutions seek the prestige associated with having a 'young genius' on their books.

It seems that the Scottish system is different to the English one and therefore my ability to comment will be extremely limited - if there are other fast-tracked kids who have gone to uni early, then there may be enough to make the experience enjoyable for you; I guess it all depends upon the number of other young students there are there. How far it is from home also comes into it of course. At the end of the day it is primarily your choice and regardless of your decision the fact that you have been offered this opportunity is an incredible vote of confidence in your abilities!

There are certain implications of a 16 year-old being thrown into social situations with 18 year-olds. Would it not bother you that you wouldn't be able to drink or go to clubs in your first year? Law isn't an easy degree. After first year you will need to spend more time working and less time partying, and so will your law friends in all likelihood.

My advice would be to be wary of robbing yourself of the full first-year-of-uni experience.

Thanks for posting,
yeah, it was a though for me about the drinking part, but to be honest I dont like alcohol, and wouldnt mind going out without drinking. Luckily the on campus night clubs and bar, and also the student union let you in underage, as long as you dont directly buy alcohol.
Thanks again (:

Totally forgot about this thread until I was clearing out past TSR emails
Rejected my offer and reapplied this year, got into Glasgow but have once more chosen Stirling as if you're going to study somewhere for four years, it would be best to go where you will be happy.
