    Fair enough. Did you post in your uni subforum for help/do you to help others there?
    Yes. A mother of someone who's applying actually messaged me on Facebook seeing that I've posted quite a lot.

    TSR probably will when I get round to it, however I think open days would be the deal breaker/sealer for me

    Awesome work.



    And it's not a uni choice but i recently got some help in the fitness forum which helped me get a job.

    Had to talk about something i'm passionate about and i chose my training and i made a thread of "What transferable skills does training show" to help and got awesome responses, used these to help make a presentation and delivered it in an interview and got the job.

    I've been lurking on here since GCSEs.

    I did ask on a thread whether I should firm Lancaster or Nottingham, and everyone said Nottingham, but I firmed Lancaster instead, because I loved it on the open day and the course was way more flexible.
    I put Nottingham as my insurance though, so I suppose it influenced me a bit.

    I'm kind of wish I asked more about what unis to apply to, as I feel I wasted 2 of my applications.

    It didn't influence my initial decisions, however, I did look at threads on the university I wanted to firm when I received my offers in order to verify that I made the right choice, and to try and get a feel of what the uni was like and the kind of people that go there etc

    I didn't even look at TSR when I was deciding. But from the looks of this it wouldn't have been very useful anyway. Most people have never even heard of my uni. I also didn't need other people's opinions I knew what I wanted to do. I applied to one Uni although they had given me a place before I even looked at doing UCAS.

    Interesting, which uni is this? If we don't have a section for it then maybe we should do... :holmes:

    Harper Adams University. It is not worth making a page for it. We only get about 600 freshers a year. And it is very rare that someone ever asks about Harper Adams.

    I actually got a very fair and varied view that allowed me to make a decision based on the kinds of views that best aligned with my own.

    I asked one or two questions that were promptly answered, again with a range of views.

    1 person. Normally during term time I try and answer any questions about Harper. But I'm not sure an entire sub forum is needed. I will try and get the SU to update the Student Union part. I'm too lazy to do it myself.

    Yeah, it made me aim a bit higher with my uni choices, and I learnt a lot about how unis actually work, and how to write a personal statement etc.

    That isn't really enough for its own sub forum. We have it all under control over at the SU.

    I actually agree there's not enough discussion for a subforum having looked but think it could do with you going to help that guy with no replies in the 2015 thread. He looks lonely...
