    I have got an unconditional offer from Edinburgh University and a conditional from Durham. I am doing 3 Advanced Highers anyway so I'm not that concerned about having to meet the second offer. What is the best Law School? I've always wanted to do English Law but I love Edinburgh City so much more - its such a lovely place and the social life is really good and the course also looks excellent. I originally hoped to go to Cambridge, got pooled - was 8th out of 54 at St John's College - and then was pushed out through lack of space *sigh* However I love Edinburgh and would defo have amazing years there if it just wasn't for my preference for English Law. So what do you think? I've got to May too decide though - although I probably will by the end of this month.

    If you think you'd be much happier at Edinburgh (and you're Scottish so Edinburgh doesn't charge you tuition), I'd suggest you go there. It's a brilliant city and a great course. Unless you really want to study English law, it sounds like you'll have more fun here. You can always do the GDL for a year, especially if you get a TC in England (which will pay for the GDL to top up the material that doesn't transfer). Then you could practise in England, if that's your concern. The expense isn't small, but it costs less than three years at Durham would. Incidentally, it's easier to transfer Scotland-England than vice versa.

    Well done on the offers, anyway--they're great choices.

    One year. There are two year courses, but they are degrees (or the GDL part time). Someone who already had a law degree wouldn't stand to gain much from doing another BA in English law.
