    uni: Dundee
    course: Maths + Psychology
    offer? yep- CCD (incredibly low for that course)
    reason: I just fell i love with the place, the uni is kinda between the shops + the nightlife + everything is in crawling distance- it's a proper student town, the unis getting a lot of money at the moment and is really growing + the course is perfect- they have less than 30 people in the maths classes instead of big lectures.

    have you looked round the other unis you've applied to? i could never choose somewhere as my favourite without visiting, i always expected st andrews to be my fav + when i got there it did nothing for me at all and it's my least favourite now....

    *hug* don't really know what to say to that... have you any new preference among the other 4?

    this won't help, but my friend got rejected by York for History with grades like yours- all I can suggest is that maybe they thought you were an oxbridge candidate. like you, he was annoyed when his friend got accepted for the same course and his friend was a far weaker candidate (his ASs were ABBC compared to AAAA).

    I've been to Lancaster, which will probably be my insurance offer, and I loved the place, and I went to Sheffield, which I've had an offer from, but which I probably won't be going to. Not that it's unappealing, it's just the least appealing of the six. I also went to Leeds and really liked it there, but I haven't heard anything from them yet.

    I've haven't been to Durham or LSE, but I got rejected from Durham, and I'm expecting the same from LSE, so it doesn't really matter.

    What uni is it? Warwick
    What course is it? English Literature
    Have you had an offer? Nope, not yet However, a friend who applied around the same time for a similar course has already been rejected, so I'm hoping no news is good news :confused:
    Why? Uni is well-respected, Course looks fab, nice campus etc. Also, I used to live in Warwickshire and really love the area.

    I think it's a bit more than that... the guardian league table lists 120 institutions.
