    A: Go to your prefered and better uni (better ranking,facilities, social life and nice building) AND do the course you dont mind doing but not the one your really passionate in doing.

    OR

    B: Go a slightly lower uni (<ranking,facilities,worser social life sad looking building) AND do the course your passionate about.

    It depends on how different the courses are. If it's just a case of different modules but the same over all subject I would go to the preferred and better uni as module choices can always change half way through courses and such. Where as, if their completely different subjects I would go for the subject that is more likely to get you into the job where you want to be at the end of your degree.

    Instantly, I'd say option A but more information would be needed because that could change things

    Well it would have to be option B in that case. Ultimately, you're going to uni to get a degree, putting all social aspects aside. If you're not passionate about your course, then what's the point? You could coast through, put the minimum amount of effort in and just about pass. Or the even more likely scenario, you'll get bored of the course and drop out after a while. Trust me, ive been there and done that. The course is the most important decision. Of course where you study is important too, and whether you'll feel comfortable living there. But getting the course right is the top priority; being able to pick and choose where you go is often a bit of a luxury. It sounds to me like you haven't really got that balance right, is there nowhere else you could still try and apply to that offers the same course and where you'd think you'd be a bit happier?

    Option B.

    The ranking is irrelevant and, ultimately, you should be there to learn. I also couldn't care less what the buildings look like.

    Definately pick the course you're passionate about. Especially in engineering as thats the branch of it you'll be stuck with for life if you choose to do the one you don't like, and for what? A few more clubs and a pretty view?
