    I sent my UCAS off beginning of November and have heard back from all my other uni's just waiting to hear back from Bristol.

    Has anyone else received offers for Law and are people still waiting?

    I don't actually want to go to Bristol anymore because I've already been accepted into the ones I wanted as my firm and insurance, I was just waiting to see out of interest if I got an offer from Bristol.
    But but... How could you not want Bristol? :confused: It's insanely awesome!!

    So, is anybody else applying here?
    I'll be applying for Chemistry with industrial experience
    I applied for Chemistry with study in continental Europe at Bristol and got an offer for AAB which hopefully I'll get! I've put Bristol as my Firm choice, I loved it. We could be on the same course!

    Standard rejection email is a little brutal compared to other universities. It's hard to believe Oxford's letter was much more pleasant than Bristol's.

    BSc, BA or MSci? I'm an MSci but I'm kind of regretting it because I think the offer (if I ever got one) might be really high.

    If you don't want to go anymore then withdraw your application so someone else who wants to go can have your place?
    I don't think it makes any difference. They have a computer program that tells them how many offers they can make given that a certain percentage won't accept/won't meet the offer.

    There are places that are at least as good, especially if their admissions process is anything to go by.

    And why is it only your insurance if it's so great???

    really? If you really got how philosophical study works then I doubt you'd be so cocksure about it mate, to be honest, the more you learn the less you understand.
    Maybe you've done the A-Level, and you've read the wikipedia page for Twilight of the Idols. You've heard the name Soren Kierkegaard but you're not entirely sure, and you can articulate about half of what Sartre has to say.
    I know your kind so well. I'm sure you're great at regurgitating what other people say, absolutely perfect at it, but what was the last original idea you really had and haven't stolen?
    nah mate, I've never heard of Twilight of the Idols; Kierkegaard and Sartre dont really interest me (Im more into analytic philosophy); and I haven't done the a-level. Have a look at yourself before you say i'm '****-sure'.

    Was simply saying that I almost definitely have better grades and a better application in general than someone who didnt get in! The logic does follow really.

    Doesn't necessarily make you a nice person though.

    It was hard for me pick between Imperial and Bristol but I preferred the course at Imperial. If Bristol did Imperial's course structure then Bristol would be a definite firm. Still I may always end up in Bristol if my exams don't go okay.

    sorry to intrude but..

    "better grades"... no, not necessarily. There are typical requirements for a reason; providing you meet the entry requirements, the rest is pretty much dependent on your personal statement.
    Now, yes you may well have had a stronger personal statement than someone who was rejected. Or, you may have had a statement that showed your interests were well suited to what Bristol offers. It does not follow that your application was 'almost definitely logically better'; it just means that you would enjoy/benefit from their course more than someone who showed greater interest in say philosophy of religion, as Bristol do not really focus on that.
    So you should probably stop trying to make such claims about yourself and wipe the brown off your nose.

    I see you've picked Bristol then :nothing: Do you know what, I'm sure you'll do well wherever you go I know how hard the decision is between Imperial and Bristol so pick the one where your heart tells you to go. Bristol, you prefer then Bristol it is.
    As for me, I don't think I want to fudge my exams up but I'll give it a good go

    hahaha good joke, so once you pass the minimum requirements you think grades are irrelevant?

    Obviously nonsense seeing as the only requirement is a C at maths GCSE.

    Also, who exactly am i brown nosing? im surely doing the opposite?

    Think before you speak.
