    nottingham gave me a BBC offer for computer science within a week and after further research and analysis i had my heart set out to it

    i had an interview at manchester today which i didn't attend. it was costing me £150 to get there and back to london and i was feeling way too lazy to prepare for an interview and get my ass on a train at 6 in the morning (the £150 would not get refunded either).

    so, will I be disappointed that I just rejected a top uni? i've got offers from loughborough and surrey too (still waiting for kings). how's the student life in nott and how does it compare with manchester in terms of reputation? from what i know, they're kinda on the same level, but i may be illformed.

    Visit Nottingham and you won't regret a thing.
    I rejected Manchester last year but still these things are rather subjective.

    Nottingham is a great uni, both in terms of reputation and student life, plus you have the amazing campus.

    I missed my grades for warwick and notts was my insurance, and i am so glad now that i ended up at notts. Its an amazing city to live in, there is so much going on, yet the uni is just far enough out of the city to be made up of acres and acres of beautiful parkland.

    Seriously, you won't regret it!

    Any other questions let me know!

    £150 from Manchester to London? o.O By train it's little less than £40 for me. Anyway I had offers last year from Manchester and Nottingham and they were the two which gave me the most trouble deciding over. It's all relative. I won't be able to tell you if you missed an opportunity because I never knew what Nottingham was like. (Why am I posting here then....?)

    Reading this post is making me consider Nottingham. I still wanna check out the campus in feb and that. I just applied to nottingham because it sounded quite prestigious i didnt actually think i stood a chance of getting an offer which I did Lol. So my friend and I are going in Feb to see what the campus is like. It sounds really fun and I wanna get out of London for a bit too and go somewhere different and really have the time of my life

    And it is true everyone that has applied has gotten an Offer LOL seems like they are being well generous this year
