    got an offer yayaya! interview was so bad i cant believe it!! :eek:
    im so worried about accommodation tho - not sure about firming notts over leics - could someone tell me how many catered ensuite, shared ensuite and private sharing rooms there are left at university park?
    I did my application last night and all it said was that there were no en suite or en suite plus catered rooms left in university park and that you could put your name down to go on the waiting list. You have to put at least 2 choices down for accommodation, each choice being site and room type preference.

    I had the same dilemma and ended up picking Nottingham. These were my reasons why;
    - Easier to travel home (Notts is 2 trains, Leicester is 3)
    - QMC is absolutely massive.
    - Nottingham accommodation is on campus (However there are no catered ensuite rooms left on University Park).
    - The Nottingham campus is really pretty.
    - Can intercalate in the 5 year degree.
    - I get a bursary at Nottingham for doing their Summer School.
    I think the main differences are that Leicester uses a more integrated curriculum with earlier patient contact whereas Nottingham is a more traditional degree. I also prefer the fact that at Nottingham you're in the Uni over the full day with free periods, whereas at Leicester your first year lectures are 9-1 and second year is 1-5. I know I work better in a full day when I have frees.
    Hope this helps
    I had my first GP placement in the second week of first term, so Notts is pretty good with early patient contact too :P

    I'd be obliged if any current nottingham medic could recommend whether catered or non catered is the best for a first year..is the catering in halls too inflexible for the timetables so meals get wasted?

    I don't think I can apply yet as I am waiting for a track update from my final uni so cannot firm anywhere.

    Hi! I'm not a current Nottingham medic (yet lol) but when I spoke to one of my friends in first year she recommended catered because she said she personally didn't find the time to be able to cook for herself and so it was nice to know that there was always food ready for her. But she said the timings are a bit weird (sorry I don't remember what they are exactly, I think dinner was like 5-7.30 pm or something). hope this helps
