    Imperial has a really prestigous rep, and if you were to go there at the end of the day you would probably end up with a better job, just for the sheer fact that employers come to you when you go to Imperial.

    I've applied there for next year to study chemistry, and I've got an offer of BBB, (whch is quite low by Imperial standards). Even though it seems to be a really nice uni and I would love to go there as it is in a sense my 1st choice, I have to admitt I'm extremely hesistant about going there. Because:
    1. The costs of living in London (espcially South Ken) are Uber Large!
    2. There didn't seem to be many people like me, who I would get on with, because at the end of the day I'm a loud mouth Essex Gyal, not your stereo typical G-Imperial student.
    But apart from that I really want to go there but at the moment, its a hot contest between Imperial and Durham

    I don't know that much about Manchester, but from my visits to Imperial I personally find it a terrible place; I would hate to study there.

    I like to view Imperial as the sister of the LSE.
    Well, in a way they are sisters since their 'mother' is the University of London.

    LSE (female - full of splendour and grace)
    Imperial (actually probably a male)

    King's (male - obviously)
    UCL (female, but a fat one)

    Queen Mary (female - obviously, probably asian)
    SOAS (male drug addict)

    I thought royal holloway made up the 6 uni's of london not SOAS

    There are, of course, more than 6 colleges of the University of London, but I thought that those 6 were the main ones. I could be wrong.
    I am pretty sure lse, icl, kcl, ucl, qmul, rhul are the six uni's under the umbrella of university of london.

    btw i know there are more than 6 colleges in london! lol!

    None of the constituents of the University of London are really universities in their own right (hence the word "college" rather than "university" in their names), but they are pretty independent. Look at http://www.lon.ac.uk/Colleges_Institutes/ -- but if you were to take the six main ones then it would be RH rather than SOAS

    That's exactly what I did, chose Manchester over IC.

    I didn't really mind about where I did it, as a maths degree is a maths degree anywhere, I just wanted a good life at university. IC's boy-girl ratio and area put me off. Kensington doesn't appeal to me. Manchester is however away from London (meaning I can move out and away from the folks) and it seems a really fun city.

    ive been having to choose between imperial and durham, and im probably gonna end up having durham as my firm, and imperial as insurance. its way too costly there and also travelling on the tube everyday (after your 1st year, when you start living in flats) doesnt really appeal to me

    Well i took a look at IC when I went for the interview earlier this month and thought it was a nice place to study, even if the SU is a bit crap (but hey! that doesn't matter because you can use all the other Uni of London SU's), and I'm going to Warwick on wed for a Post-offer open day and later in march I'm going to the Durham open day but I can't decide if I want to sleep over or not....again.....decisions, decisions
