    Bristol are weird.

    I got an offer from them, for english, on the 5th of december. I know someone got an offer for the same course in early November. Other people i know haven't heard anything back yet. I wouldn't worry about it; it seems that Bristol just give offers out when they feel like it!

    uh.... no actually. I used to live in bristol though- does that count?

    I got an offer from oxford anyway, so i'm not actually taking up a place at bristol, which is kinda sad, because it has amazing nightlife and stuff. Ah well.

    Got an offer from bristol 1st december. ABC to study philosophy. Think i may take them up on it because cambridge rejected me - sob! What do you guys think i should do? bristol, durham or warwick?
    Thanks.

    Dont worry if you havent heard from them yet. i too have heard they can be strange when it comes to making offers.

    cheers

    Those Unis are incredible! But I would rule out Warwick because if you're looking for a night out, you aren't going to get one there
    Also, I wouldn't reccomend Durham because its nightlife is apparently a bit dead too. Bristol is the best of the lot, because its prestigious AND you'll have an amazing time while there! Also, their philosophy department is ace. I visited it at an open day and loved it

    I got an offer from Bristol about a month ago to study maths with computer science... it was quite high (AAB). Since I got an offer from Oxford, I'll probably use it as my backup...

    The weather can be really really nice, but the place isn't that exciting (atleast, not for people our age)... stick to coming here on holiday, coz then you'll always appreciate it. I was born here, and can't wait to leave!

    Some halls are really far away from the city centre - almost an hour's walk! That's the trouble with Bristol since everything is dotted all over the place.

    I've declined my BBC offer from them.

    my boyfriend got an offer for zoology from bristol and nottingham (unconditional-he already has 2A's and 2B's at A level and an A at AS) and that was in november-funny thing is, he wants to do vet science, but those were his fall back choices coz he got rejected last year and didn't want to find himself cascading down the proverbial sh*t creek if it happened again this year... and he didn't mention ONE thing about zoology in his personal statement, it was all about him wanting to be a vet! yet 2 really good universities are willing to let him in!
    so, try it...it might work for you!

    hey...there are going to be loads of people with Cambridge rejections at least i hope so...coz i am one of them!!! which college did you apply to? i applied Caius for medicine...thought i will be clever and apply for the hardest one! it was all a JOKE..interview went great...and they let me know on the 31st Dec that they think i am academically able and would thrive at anywhere else i go, and i am toooooooooooo good for them!!!
    i got into Nottingham which according to many is better at medicine than Cam!
    anyways...!
    and i am waiting to hear from bristol, who have too many applicants and would like me to be patient...

    i have an offer from bristol, abc, although not for history but ancient history, which i imagine is a great deal less competitive, perhaps that is why i have heard but others for history haven't?
