    Hey all,

    I have an offer from Leicester Medical School, and Dundee Medical school, thing is I have no idea which one to firm.

    I've been to Leicester, its a nice uni and nice city. I've only seen Dundee as the uni, I haven't actually visited the city so I don't know how it is. I've heard its always misty/foggy/wet there?

    However Dundee seems to have a better reputation as a medical school.

    Please provide constructive feedback. Thank you so much.

    Personally I'd go to Leicester because it seems to have a better nightlife and social scene but I haven't visited Dundee so I can't say that with any real conviction.

    As for which is the more reputable school, you'll learn very quickly that it doesn't really matter which one you attend as they're all validated by the GMC and lead to the same qualification.

    What you may want to take into account before making your choice are the following:

    - which course structure suits you better?
    -which city appeals to you more and where would you like to spend 5/6 years of your life?
    -which one offers the sports and socieities you're most interested in joining?
    -are you happy to travel around that university's region on various clinical attachments (rural Scotland in the winter seems to pose a few obstacles)?
    -is the cost of living important to you? where would it be cheaper to live?
    - is distance from home an issue?
    - where would you be happy?

    Leicester is a nice city with a lot of foreign in particular south asian people, and don't worry about medical school reputation as unless its oxbridge, most med schools are regarded with similar reputation . I've never been Dundee though.

    If it was me, I would choose Dundee mainly because I would rather live in Dundee than Leicester. And yes I have been to both Dundee and Leicester. I thought Leicester sounded good in the prospectus, but I didn't really like the city.
