    Best of luck, hope you get offers of them too! Who else have you applied too?

    Haha, no it wasn't that bad, it was more of an "ARGHHH!" as oppose to a "AIIIIY" if you get me, my phoentic alphabet is a bit off today!
    Bristol and Reading and Birmingham. I really don't know where I'm going to firm, hopefully after I visit everywhere again I'll make up my mind. I fell in love with Reading when I went there. Head over heels.

    Really? That's so bizarre because out of all of them Reading is the lesser university, in the sense that the others are all Russel Group and very prestigous... so to have offers from them and decline them, everyone would condemn you haha!

    Ah that's good at least you have offers! It's good to feel like SOMEONE wants us isn't it haha. I hate seeing the 'unsuccessful' on my UCAS I'm Law with French. Have an offer from Manchester as well but it's just Law. I really want to go to Notts too! If only because I live in Brum and want to get away lol... I need an excuse to change my accent haha. And I've applied to Durham as well. But I don't want to go there. Too far away!

    Also, should I be worried that it's just a BA at Notts, and not LLB? From what I can see... BA isn't as prestigious? Why have I not researched this lol!!!
    Haha yeah i know Good luck, i hope you get an offer there's nothing wrong with the accent aha I don't think so, Cambridge do the BA aha, so it can't be that bad

    I know, I know, it's a real dilemma. I didn't think I'd get into Bristol. If after I visit them all again I decide that I'll be happiest at Reading I'd still do it though, whatever TSR. I haven't visited Warwick for a couple of years but I really liked it there too, then. And I haven't visited Birmingham since lower sixth, so about three years ago, so I need to go back there too really. It's all up in the air and very exciting.

    I think you'll have a different set of eyes now you have offers of them places. Think about long-term though. If you LOVE Reading, but LIKE Warwick. Just think Warwick will open so many more doors for you as a graduate than Reading, and yeah there's the whole 'go where you love' but if you loved London South Bank and liked Oxford, you wouldn't go to LSB would you haha? I know it's completely exaggerated extremes but the principal is still the same...

    It is very exciting. I did this whole business last year with English, decided on Uni of Manchester, but then I quit as I decided I definitely wanted to do Law, and I ****ed up my A2's due to some serious mitigating circumstances... so re-applied for Law, and now here I am! It is exciting indeed.

    Lol, the wait is killing me. I applied to Cardiff, Durham, Southampton and Birmingham, mainly because these universities are really good at law and have good cricket teams. What about you? which other 4 did you apply to?

    I applied to LSE, UCL, KCL and Nottingham. The London ones are really worrying me since a couple of my friends who were brilliant in their AS was rejected.
    The wait is killing me too.

    Well, it's not always good results which gets the offers. Personal statements need to be top-class, references should be good. There's more than just results, so keep your head up.

    I applied for English a couple of years ago. I'm pretty determined I'm going to get the whole uni thing right this time around, I'm visiting everywhere and I'm going to take ages to decide, but I'm going to do it with a completely open mind. I don't want to go anywhere and be thinking 'what if I went to...' three months in.

    Are you resitting A levels then? Because your offer's for three As? What subjects are you doing? Or did the mitigating circumstances push your grades back up?

    Haha yeah i know Good luck, i hope you get an offer there's nothing wrong with the accent aha I don't think so, Cambridge do the BA aha, so it can't be that bad
    Ahh are you from Birmingham lol! And yeah I've looked at it, I think BA you have to choose your modules more carefully if you want to do a law-based career. I might be talking out my arse but there we go.
    Cheers for the help anyway! Good luck to you too, and hopefully see u in Notts!!!
