    Funny to see this post.
    I graduated from Nottingham in July. I can safely say I am extremely pleased with the decision! I had a great three years.
    In terms of opportunities, I will not lie, Nottingham did put me at a disadvantage compared to my friends at UCL/LSE, however I got very lucky and still got the job I wanted (IB at BAML).
    Any people who are in a similar conundrum, all I can say is if you are driven it will make no difference what university you go to, just ensure you have a good time!
    That sounds great- I've heard a lot of positive feedback about Nottingham! But also that nottingham is also known as "shottingham" because of an apparent hight crime rate.

    I'm applying to both nottingham and ucl, and warwick, birmingham and leicester as my other 3 but I have no idea which universities I'm going to firm and insure!
