    UEA, Liverpool, Leicester and also UEA for History.

    After getting all five offers I was fairly annoyed I didn't apply to somewhere more aspirational. I'm currently stuck between UEA and Birmingham, I'm going to make my decision after the Law applicant day at Birmingham.

    Have you looked at B'ham accommodation?
    Oh right, there is always adjustment? Yes I have applied for Jarratt hall twice, Mason and Oakley. I want a en-suite, have you looked at accommodation?

    Probably not, but they do take a lot of emphasis on ur lnat essay so I'm sure you must've done well in that to get rejected (I got 19 and got instantly rejected)

    May I ask what your gcse and A level grades are?

    yeah sure, i got 2A* 5A 3B at GCSE and 1A 3B and 1C at AS (however the university only saw my a as i only certificated it)

    I got predicted A*AA and i thought my LNAT essay went OK, if not well

    (got offers from Bristol,Warwick and Exeter, rejection from UCL and still waiting on KCL )

    Birmingham is the better choice, but being brutally honest if your ultimate aim is to work for a top city firm or to become a barrister I think you need to take a look at UCAS Extra (or whatever they call it now) or Clearing for a more prestigious law school. Places like Durham and Warwick feature surprisingly often. Birmingham is fine, but that's it- I'd aspire for higher if you can possibly manage it.

    Is Birmingham or Manchester better for law?

    If you're an international student and planning to go home afterwards I would say Manchester, because it has a very good international reputation/name recognition.

    If you're planning to stay here, Birmingham probably because Manchester's law school is not particularly revered and struggles with student recruitment most years.

    50/50. It all comes down to applicant numbers and who accepts offers etc. There will almost definitely be some top law schools in there going on previous years.

    About the same probably. I'd pick between them based on which City I preferred.

    I'd avoid Nottingham- they traditionally dish out way more 2.2's for law than the other universities you mention. A 2.2 is basically a real real impediment in getting jobs, so for that reason alone I would personally be wary of Nottingham as a choice.

    As for Bristol vs Exeter I don't think there's much difference really. Bristol probably has the better reputation as an overall University, but Exeter's law school is quite well regarded. Have you visited them both? A common criticism of Exeter is that the City is a bit dull, whilst Bristol obviously is a very studenty City, so perhaps that may be a way of deciding between them? Whichever you pick I wouldn't say either is a bad decision.
