    You seem far too hung-up on what other people and the league tables say about the place you want to go to. If you like it GO THERE, if you don't then go somewhere else that you do like!!!

    bristol has always been traditionally high in terms of reputation and prestige..amongst older pple mostly neway, even tho i think it gets more credit than it desreves...i dunno just my opnion. i dont think bristol reputation will change much for quite a while, as it is a v. good and established uni. i think what matters tho is how u feel about the uni itself u sound like uve already made ur mind up tho...

    i would think that you look for the business table, as acc and fin is under business department

    I'm in a similar situation, just with Durham, not Bristol....and I felt really relieved when people said I should just go for Durham, if that's where I was leaning towards anyway....It's silly to be so easily swayed by strangers on a message board, but sometimes it helps when people just confirm what you really wanted to hear anyway. So I'm just going to say the same to you - if your gut feeling says "go to Bristol", and you do really like the place, and the course and so on, then go for it.
    I've only ever heard good things about Bristol myself, and actually, I'm a bit sceptical about league tables anyway. I think they're a bit subjective really. I think once your looking at the "top ten" unis, or even top twenty, you can't really go wrong - I think once a uni has reached the level of "very good", that's good enough, and there really isn't very much to distinguish between them after that (- I think the vast difference people make out there is between them, is a bit artificial and contrived). The rest is, ultimately, up to you, and what you make of your course, and what use you put your time there to. If you work hard you'll end up doing well, and if you don't you won't, regardless of where you go - so, in the end, I don't think it much matters where we go, because I think we'd probably all have a good time anywhere.
