    Law (M100), and am highly considering firming. Bristol seems like a great university, and a great city

    In terms of accommodation, i'm leaning towards Hiatt Baker at the moment. I'm not particularly bothered about the quality of the hall as long as it's liveable, I just want to be somewhere with a good atmosphere and a bit of fun :P

    p.s. Has anyone considered making a Facebook group to run alongside the thread? It seemed to be done last year with universities from what I saw.

    Nice! Yeah Hiatt Baker seems great, and plus seeing as it is the largest hall, it might also be the most lively, but I prefer being closer to the uni itself

    yh bristol is next after lse if pure social policy is your thing i am much more interested in it with econ although even doing straight sp has sh1t loads of flexibility which is the best thing about them dont know if bristol would be as flexible or as transferrable as just the name lse lets you do what you want within reason.

    and its alot more easier to gain entry if you do it str8 the stats make for interesting reading

    I seriously considered being in the Clifton area but when it comes down to it, if most of the people are at Stoke Bishop then i'd much rather be there (where the party is B) ). Not to mention the walk from SB to the university will help burn off all the **** i'll most likely be eating as a poverty-stricken student :P

    Well I mean I applied for SP + Politics for Bristol as well, but they offered me straight SP, which I don't mind tbh. If that happens for LSE, again I don't mind too much lol When I look at the course itself (for Bristol), you can do a lot of optional modules, but whether this stretches out to other departments is yet to be known lol I guess I'll have to wait until the visit day to find out

    I'm probably firming for Physics Thinking about Durdham hall as it is new, Wills seemed a bit too formal on the open day, and Hiatt Baker looked a bit rundown. Was thinking about the Clifton residences, but I know most undergraduates are based in Stoke Bishop, so although Clifton is closer, I don't want to be away from the action!

    haha I don't know tbh, but I can say that my friend is at Manor Hall and I actually stayed over a couple of months ago, and it was quite good - a bit cold because there is no carpet, but the general environment was quite good - free pool, table tennis, cheap drinks at the bar etc etc and every time we saw one of the wardens, he would always make those jokes you would normally see on the back of Penguin bars, which was quite a nice, unintentional, touch lol

    yh thats a minor establish your self hand in some good pieces of work which have been well researched on and you will kinda make a name for your self and that will let you transfer around universities are alot more flexible then they may appear to be from the outside.

    I've heard Durdham has a reputation for being the 'quiet' hall, though I could be mistaken. Obviously a social life is what you make of it, but I don't think I could handle being somewhere dull :P

    Like Warwick in what way? I'm guessing that's a bad thing?

    Just in the sense that it has a very campus-like feel to it - a bit ironic considering I applied to Warwick lol No, but in all honesty, I do like Warwick, they have great societies (e.g. skydiving) and generally very good facilities and so on, but I feel that it is a little isolated, and a student-only environment is not something I would condemn, but if I had a choice I would prefer a city hall of residence
