    I am waiting for my results to be released in Sept'04 before I can apply for Law in the UK Universities for enrolment in 2005. But I am at a dilema on what are the 6 Universities that I should pen down in my UCAS Form.

    I would certainly appreciate if you could rank the 8 universities according to your preference

    University of Bristol
    University of Manchester
    University of Leicester
    University of Exeter
    University of Sheffield
    University of Southampton
    University of Liverpool
    University of Birmingham

    Oh yes, one more thing, I am certainly not one of those girls who are into shopping or drinking, and I simply hate it when my Laptop gets stolen :P

    It's not really the case, it's just that I don't really wish to go into a school whereby the security is so bad that break-ins and theft is so rampant.

    Most would not agree but I preferred the Birmingham campus to the Bristol one.

    Manchester is not for you then, Manchester is pretty much 100% shopping and drinking. Though we have loads of museums and art galleries for you book werms, not forgeting the biggest public library in Europe, the biggest bus route in Europe, the best densly populated area in the world (in 1926), the biggest **** in europe, what was once the best club in the world etc.....

    Well there have been 3 murders in the last two days in southampton so strike that off, even though it's good for Law.
    If you like grey hi-rise buildings Birmingham is for you

    Never been to Leicester, but they make cool red cheese there
    Manchester...erm...no

    Sheffield, never been there either but they have a football team named after a day of the week rather than Rovers/United/City so they are probably more intellectual than sporty when they can't name a team properly

    Liverpool is a good place cuz you can go and be all cultural about the beatles and you can take a "FERRRY CROSS THE MERSEEYYY"

    Exeter is beautiful, cut off a bit but beautiful nonetheless

    Bristol would probably be your best bet, though I still think you should be in a place like London or Manchester..they have high crime rates which if your doing law is something vital to be a lawyer or barrister

    Bristolis incredibly hard to get into, and you aware of that? They have 1000 applicants for every place or something. grades isnt enough.

    Not sure about the others, remember to get one or 2 with lower grades just incase.

    Im at exeter now, and i love it

    for law...those are weird choices overall anyway but:

    University of Bristol
    University of Manchester

    laughing from a great height down at:

    University of Birmingham
    University of Sheffield
    University of Exeter

    with:

    University of Leicester
    University of Liverpool

    taking up the rear..hope this helps

    Well, I don't wish to go to a London School + Nottingham doesn't show too much enthusiasm in my 1st Year UOL's LLB + Durham have yet to reply me + Singapore only recognise 16 of the UK Universities for Law in their provisions...

    Hence less all the factors above, sadly, I am only left with all those choices :P

    nod.. nod... I understand that Bristol is kinda hard to get into. But well, they have kind of agreed to give due recognition to my 1st Year UOL's LLB if I managed to attain a certain grade.

    As for Exeter, after one of the Law lecturer emailed me and showed how friendly he was, coupled with all the good things I have heard about Exeter, I was quite looking forward to going there as well

    Oxbridge are in fact very recognised... but well, they are in London hence I decided not to give it a shot.

    As for Manchester and Liverpool, I did a check on the UK map, they are not in London.

    The main issue why I am not going to London is probably because of the High Cost of Living. Although I am not the one sponsering my own Education but I wouldn't want my parents to be spending too much I guess.

    No!!! They're not in London!! Cambridge is in East Anglia...nearer to Norwich..and Oxford is further inland....they're much cheaper than in London!!!!
