    so it's come to that dreaded time of making uni application choices. i'm having trouble making my choices. originally Cardiff wasn't even an option for me because i felt it was too close to home (it's only a 45minute drive away). however, after having seen the university, SU etc and looked closer at the actual course i have found myself seriously reconsidering. i love cardiff as a city and i love the fact that the university is so close to the city centre. sounds like the perfect choice for me right?? yet, a big part of me leaving for university was to get away from the valley's and it's mindset and to experience new things, (as cliché as it sounds i was hoping to find me). What do you guys think? would i be making a mistake staying so close to the very things i've been desperate to get away from for so long or would i forever regret not applying to the perfect uni for me??:confused:
    oh my head hurts thinking about it again

    Where else are you thinking of applying? If there aren't really any others that you feel that strongly about, then you don't really have anything to lose by applying there! Then you can worry about whether to go there if you get an offer :p:

    oh god i'll cross that bridge if i come to it, one nightmare at a time please haha, i've looked at a few other places but the cities don't really feel like my sort of place, i loved nottingham initially but after i saw the actual campus i decided against it :/ i think it's because i want to be so close to the city centre and i haven't really seen anywhere else like that other than cardiff
