Ok i applied for pharmacy and got 6/6 offers never thought i'd been in this postition. The unis are as follows:

LSOP-BBB
UEA-ABB
Aston-BBB
Nottingham-ABB
Demontford-280pts
Brighton-300pts

I ruled out demontford because lets face it the others are better. Nottingham is ruled out as it would be too expensive for accomodation. Aston, i didn't like the uni much and the atmosphere.

Ok its between UEA, LSOP and Brighton. UEA has only been teaching pharmacy since 2003 so has not got full accreditation so that puts me off slightly. But staff seem really really friendly and helpful and was a very good atmosphere, but would have to live there which is not a problem, also gave very good work experience throughout the course. Brighton was quite good but i feel it didn't have such friendly staff and the overall uni layout i didn't like much, probably use it as insurance. LSOP, obviously has a really good reputation and all pharmacists i spoke to around where i live (essex) say they all went LSOP, one pharmacist i spoke to didn't really like the teaching style they gave for when they went to work in hospital didn't really prepare them well enough. I think LSOP would give better job oppourtunities, as i could get a job in london a bit easier. But not as good work experience as UEA, also don't think i would meet as many people at LSOP as i wouldn't live there and would have to commute everyday but would be a lot cheaper.

So where do people reckon is better from what i said?

if you could afford going to LSOP and living in central London (zone 1), then why wouldn't you be able to live in Nottingham:confused:

Because i would be commuting there everyday from essex and i'd still be living at home. Therefore wouldn't need to pay accomodation

I have choosen UEA as my firm. I really liked it there and although they are not fully accredited yet, every school of pharmacy had to start somewhere at one point.
you should choose where you liked and felt most comfortable as it 4 years of your life!
