    Hello all.

    I am torn between two colleges and was wondering if TSR could help me sort it out.

    --One college is forty minutes away from my house on the bus, but it has great facilities and lots of courses you can take part in for Higher education. It also has a computing course which is relevant since I want to study computer science at uni.

    --The other is only 10 minutes from my house, but it doesn't offer that many courses.
    and the place looks like a bigger version of my secondary school and also has loads of little kids.

    --both schools have similar A-level results and track record for sending students to good universities.

    --Do you think that going to a college further away will hinder my work, and affect my results? Will it be better to go to somewhere closer so that I don't spend so much time travelling?

    --Or do you think it will be better to opt for the college with better facilities and more courses but just have to work harder and maybe even while travelling?

    Any advice will be much appreciated. Maybe you could tell me about your college situation? and how you are doing?

    I think for an extra hour a day travelling it really doesn't make too much difference -- you'll just have to wake up a bit earlier. If you think the further-away college would be better for you, then I'd recommend you go there.
