    Ok just wanting people's opinions...so...in your opinions, which is best to go to, Newcastle or Edinburgh? I'm still waiting on leeds but tbh i'm not arsed with them, the choice is between these two being my favourites.

    I'm leaning towards ed cos im from ncl and its another lush city etcetc but just wanted to know what people think?

    Thanks xx

    Well Edinburgh is a quite respected uni but thats not really important. Go there where you feel more welcome and comfortable. Visit both unis and think about which of the citys you like more.
    Making a pro and con list may help. But I personally think from the feeling you have when you are currently at the campus you can usually make a better decision than something like a list.

    Good Luck anyways..

    I'd also say Edinburgh. I have no first hand experience of either schools, but they'll be of similar quality. I do however have first hand experience of staying in both cities and I love Edinburgh. The rent isn't as cheap (though it's not expensive either; and a lot less than London) but the stunning views, friendly atmosphere and culture make up for it!

    For me it will be Edinburgh, but it depends on what kind of city you want, the course structure and the teaching methods.
    So which one do you like more in those aspects?

    For me Newcastle because it is cheaper for student housing and a tiny bit warmer.

    But like everyone said look at what is best for you for the next 5-6years.

    Well done on you offers

    Flip a coin and see your reaction to the outcome. If you're relieved then go for that, if you're sad go for the other..

    Isn't the course structure really different? Pick the course that suits your learning style better. Or consider factor X, e.g. location, that is important to you ;3

    Does Edinburgh give all medics an open bar on friday nights?

    Ha, I can't believe that this idea is getting around! I only said it as a half-seriously.

    No, but it's Scotland. The entire country is an open bar.

    No, yeah, you're right, it's a really widely used expression but anyone that happens to use it on TSR must have gotten it from you. Makes sense! :thumbsup:

    I think you don't quite "get" the internet. Someone gently mocking you for making an egotistical comment isn't necessarily in a frothing rage behind their computer. They could be, say, sipping on a smooth black coffee and playing with tabs on the new firefox before going to the gym. Not everyone takes TSR super serious

    anyway, re: the topic I'd go for newcastle personally, but I'm biased.

    Whoa, calm down. This passive aggressiveness is getting MAD OUT OF CONTROL.

    Whether you meant it or not it's still a good test. Basic and true..It identifies your gut feeling.
