I know there are a lot of threads like this but I just thought I'd ask. Basically the offers I've recieved so far for law (in order of preference) are:
Nottingham AAB
Warwick AAAD or AAA and c at AS
Birmingham AAB
East Anglia ABB
Oxford Brookes BBB

My problem is that I really want to go to Nottingham but Warwick is higher than it in the league table. I wouldn't mind going to Warwick but I'm put off by the grades and its location. Does the fact that Nottingham is 10 in the Times league table whilst Warwick is 8 matter?

Definitely go for notts! Dont go by the league tables- Nottingham has a far better reputation for law than Warwick from what ive heard. I recommend you have a look at how top law firms rate different faculties

If you like Nottingham better? Go there, enjoying where you actually go potentially means that you'll have the want to perform better. They're very similar reputation wise, Warwick may be a little more prestigious as a whole but I assure you it's not worth missing out on a place you'll enjoy more. 3/4 years is a long time, remember that.

I said on the whole, Nottingham may be for Law specifically... but employers love Warwick.

Not when they're that close. According to the Guardian tables, Nottingham was joint with Bristol, both being only one place behind Warwick for law last year.

By the time you finish your course, Nottingham may be ranked higher than Warwick for law. When I applied to psychology, Cambridge was top in the country but I couldn't apply there because I only did one science at A-level. Now Nottingham is top.

nottingham has a much better reputation for law, i never really heard of law at warwick, someone on here a while ago posted stats of where top law firms prefer and notts was 4th or 5th i think

Yeh.. it's a mental decision. But it does depend on what other offers those two places give me. Like BBB would be difficult to reject no? Hehe... Plus, I do want to see their accomodation forms.. ARGH!
