    This is a bit early, but I thought as some people already have Edinburgh offers, it might be a good idea to have a proper place to chat about the legendary **** vet instead of it all getting lost in the main one! And also if Randomshoes is going to make a facebook page then this might be a good place for people to find it.

    Just quoting you two so I'm not alone!

    It is in construction, but I am working away as I type this!

    The group still doesn't seem quite right, but it is the only way I can find to make a group! I think it might be what groups are supposed to look like on fb now but if anyone knows how to make one better, let me know!

    Whee this is awfully exciting, it feels like we're actually going to be vets now!! Are you guys firming edinburgh as first choice? It's gonna be my insurance (if I get another offer!). Defo unimpressed about their chat with accomodation for insurance choices but; I'll be finding my own flat if they try to give me a shared room! Aha, I get into vet school and I'm still complaining

    Hiya, well done on your offer! Whereabouts in the U.S. are you from?

    Also, I'm going up to Edinburgh for a night out after Jan exams at the end of this month, so if anyone knows any good (cheap!) pubs or general studenty bars /clubs then let me know! :P (Also, booked a cheap hostel near Haymarket train station, so anywhere around there would be good too! Can tell I'm gonna get lost already)

    Hope you all had a fine new years, I managed to soak my phone in vodka which wasn't a great start but oh well, bring on 2011.

    Heya, off topic with this thread but I might be able to help you with places to go in Edinburgh (did 2 years at uni there). What day are you going on? Getting from Haymarket to George St (behind the main st - princes st) is easy and there's plenty places along there (lulus, opal and why not are the main clubs and there's bars too -candy's v.good!) and there's city (now named shark I think over waverly bridge).

    If you have any questions (don't make them too difficult!) let me know.

    Hey

    I like Edinburgh because I prefer the city slightly to Glasgow. Edinburgh vet school is very, very slightly above Glasgow in most league tables (if you're interested in those). They are both brilliant vet schools with not much to choose between them, but Edinburgh have just had two new buildings put up on their Easter Bush site.

    One of them is owned by the Roslin Institute which you might well have heard of (they were responsible for Dolly the sheep, amoung other things). The building of the new research building on the same site will mean closer bonds between the vet school and research centre, which is a bonus point for Edinburgh.

    The other one, I think, is just owned by the vet school. They both look amazing when I saw them the other day

    The **** vet is the vet I use for my animals. I have a share horse, budgies, rabbits and a cat so I get to see the workings of the **** vet as a client in a few of the different sections. The vets are all brilliant, especially the exotics vets, some of those are geniuses!

    Its a more shallow reason potentially for me, but I just prefer the atmosphere of Edinburgh vet school to Glasgow vs. Maybe I will be proved wrong but at the moment I just don't like the... ethos... of Glasgow. I have no reason for it, it is just instinct.

    It has always been my dream to go to Ed so I guess all the new developments and such are just bonuses for me, it is also handy as I live here and don't want to move away. It just seems perfect :love:

    Good luck deciding, all the vet schools are great

    The atmosphere at Edinburgh is nicer I have to say (and I know I'm biased, but I felt this way when I applied and it's one of the main reasons I chose Ed!). The people, in my experience, seem a lot warmer, friendlier, and more understanding here. I felt like I was being interrogated at my Glasgow interview, whereas at Edinburgh I felt like the interviewers were genuinely more interested in what I had to say.

    And the exotics vets are geniuses! If you like your exotics, this is definetly the place to be for many reasons! One of which is the amazing new exotics handling unit out at Bush, set up specifically for vet students to practice handling with rabbits/rats/guineas/chinchillas/hamsters/reptiles etc.

    Edinburgh also has good links with the SAC, another impressive organisation. I did work experience at one of their vet services and it was amazing (so I'm a little biased about them as well).

    On a saturday at the end of the month (29th I think)? Thanks so much for the advice. I'm so excited now haha. I think there's a fair group of us going. I quite want to come up to Ed for the fringe in the summer, but will have to see if I can afford it.
