The city ain't bad at all. Loads of cool bars, clubs, pubs and restuarants to suit most tastes. Granted it's a bit of a dissapointment that there isn't a big bar or club on campus that is the centrepiece of the social scene (they had the place on Littlejohn street but I think it's closed, I think) but the city centre isn't far away. And there are quite a few societies and sports clubs. Having said that, living as far away as Aberdeen when you're from London can be miserable if Aberdeen isn't your kind of place. Just go there, if you haven't already, to have a look. If you don't like it, you don't like it. Just go through clearing or try again next year.
