    Pretty far. My top choice is 5 hours away from me, so it looks like I'll be doing my own laundry! :p:
    That is quite a distance:yep:
    Where is your top choice?

    Nah, if you value your later life you'll probably end up going even if they are in the morning, it's just that I'm a complete train wreck at 8am, and my lectures are 40 minutes' walk away.

    Lincoln's a lovely city! I lived there for 8 years and now live about an hour away, but still go back for clubbing and family visits.

    Lots of nice pubs/bars, I like Dogma for a few drinks before hitting the clubs. As for clubs, it depends what you're into, there's lots on for indie people (Scream, The Cell and a Yo-Yo indie night on Saturdays) and normal clubs playing mainstream pop music. That's about it, which is fine for most people, but there's not the same amount of diversity you'd get in say London or Birmingham. There's lots of live music if you're into that sort of thing (I've seen The Cribs, Florence and the Machine, Glasvegas, Friendly Fires, Bloc Party and Foals at the Engine Shed, and am seeing Dizzee Rascal next month and The Editors the month after). There's good student nights on too - Moda is like an electro club night with people like Kelle from Bloc Party, Annie Mac, Crookers etc DJing, and there's Carnage which is a very messy student only piss up.

    Also, I've got a few friends at Lincoln uni and there's house parties there quite a lot. The accomodation's really nice too - all the ones I've seen have been very nice, reasonably priced en suites.

    I like the sound of having more independence, but as someone who doesn't do the whole sleeping in until the afternoon type thing is there enough to do at university if you want to do plenty of stuff? Like I've heard a lot of people say they can spend two or three days a week not doing much (apart from going out in the evening) but I'd rather be doing stuff almost every day of the week if possible.

    Depends on what you like to do? - there's generally not stuff going on in the morning as such, more the afternoons/ evenings - e.g. Wednesday afternoon is the unwritten but generally agreed sports afternoon for unis up and down the country.

    Honestly? My course.
    That might sound really geeky, but I never expected to love it as much as I do!

    Well, there are one or two sports I'd like to play I think, plus I'll probably join some societies as well. I guess societies have meetings and that sort of thing? I just like to have some sort of routine, I guess. I'm weird like that. :p:

    Yeah I get you, there are usually hundreds of societies to choose from, or even writing on the uni newspaper, which is pretty cool

    Not having to explain yourself to your parents when you fall through the door at 4am (in first year, my flatmate literally did fall through the door. A glass door. Not particularly funny at the time, but ******* hilarious now :rofl: Those are the sorts of experiences that make uni unforgettable.)

    I already have a lot of freedom, or as much as I want I should say so that won't be much different in uni. For me it'll probably be meeting the different people of different nationalities, and joining clubs and sports teams and competing on a greater level :yep:
