    Hey well.. i got the following offers for computer science..

    Imperial: AAAaa
    UCL: AAB+pass at AS subject
    KCL: ABB
    Warwick: AAB+b at AS
    York: AAAaa

    and well i chose UCL over imperial.. ive spent a couple of days at imperial in my friend's room and i didnt like the atmosphere.. the people there are too into their work and stuff.. and that doesnt suit me since im the party kind of guy and stuff... Plus, UCL has a better social aspect (im guessing) and has a good academic one as well.. so i hope i made the right choice.

    What do you guys think? feedback..

    Well, we can't really tell you if it's exactly the right choice for you, but I'd say that considering you based your decision on having actually visited the uni, then it's probably a fairly good choice.

    I think UCL looks great and you're right about a good academic aspect, so I think you should be happy with your decision.

    First of all, congratulations! I think that you've made a good choice, however obviously I would be a little biased. However, we do have an excellent social life and have a decent mix of work and play (perhaps a little too much playing! :p: ), plus we've got a wonderful mix of students - I guess the advantage of UCL over somewhere like Imperial is that it's a multi-dsiciplinary faculty, so you have people who do all sorts - it just adds to the flavour of the University. Anyhows, I'm sure you'll find this all out when you come here.

    Also, UCL have recently built a new Computer Science building which is very plush, and has excellent facilities, so hopefully you'll enjoy the department as well.

    Just a question? Why did you get 5 grade offers from Imperial, etc? Just seems a little odd to me. :confused:

    i didnt get offer for 5 A's at A level.. its 3 A's at A level and 2 A's at AS.. Plus.. i already completed an A level last year (my computing A level) in one year.. so i guess they thought id slack off this year if they gave me an offer for the 2 A levels im doing..

    Anyways.. i also liked UCL coz they sent me their offer 2 weeks after i completed my UCAS.. in early November.. which i think means that they liked something about my application.. and im sure its not the grades.. because my predicted grades arent great (im lazy at mid years and stuff hehe) or my references coz they suck! so maybe its something about my personal essay that they liked.

    By the way.. what are you studying at UCL?

    I'm currently a second year Maths student, but I have a little insight into the CS department as I'm doing a course in Financial Computing this term in that department.

    Yes, we have a lot of parties and stuff, so I'm sure that there are opportunities for you to DJ - perhaps the Union may hire you for some of their nights, but I don't know. Also, it's really cool that you're going to DJ at Paragon - good for you! :top:

    Um, it's difficult to sum people up in general as you do obviously get such a mix, but I'll try: UCL students are generally diverse, cosmopolitan, hip (we were voted the hippest Uni in the UK by Vogue!), interesting and intelligent.

    I have no idea why they said UCL London - perhaps that's a misquote on the site. Seems silly to me. Anyhows, I need to get back to being :cool:.
