    Guys, don't even worry. TheStudentRoom is not a representation of the student population! 60-70% of my college haven't sent theirs off yet. The deadline is in just over a month, don't worry!

      The universities should treat your application exactly the same as everyone else applying for the course, regardless of when you send it in. As long as you're good enough to get on the course, you should get an offer.

      Send it to me if you want, I'll look over it and make the necessary corrections to the wording/grammar.

      I'm in a happy mood and want to be helpful

      Re: Ernst & Young degree: don't people have to pay to blatantly advertise on this site?

      There are pros and cons of specialising too much with a degree choice; E&Y will focus on the pros, but please consider the cons carefully before going for such a degree.

      In my case, I knew I wanted to be a brewer, I could have done a brewing degree, but did process engineering instead, ended up with job offers from pharma and beer companies...it may be better to keep a number of doors open.

      Good luck whatever your choices
