    I applied to 4 Universities this year and selected the option to defer until 2011 on all of my options.
    I got into all of them except my first choice because they didn't accept deferrals due to the number of applicants they get etc.

    I now have 2 options, go for my second choice (which may not be as good a university, and certaintly is in a worse location)
    Or
    Re-apply next year without deferring and see if i get into my first option.

    What i want to know is, if i re-apply, will the other Uni's 'remember' me and have a bad opinion on me because i refused them the previous year?
    I plan to apply to the same places and so if they were to put me down because i didn't accept during my first application, i wouldn't want to do that obviously!

    Thanks for any help!

    People do this all the time, for all sorts of reasons. You are very unlikely to be penalised on a reapplication even if you accept your second choice as your firm for this year and then pull out on Results Day. That said, it has been known for people not to get an offer second time around, because the competition is stronger that year. So reapplying is not entirely without risk.
