    after dropping out university this summer due to be being a lazy wasteman doing a course i dislike, i have got two routes i can take.

    a) Take a year out working whilst living at my dad/stepmums house, then re-apply and go back to uni doing international relations or politics ( a subject that I enjoy). Since I put no effort into A-Levels I'd have to go to a middle of the road uni like Coventry, UWE etc.

    b)My mum can get me a place at MGIMO, a university in Moscow which specializes in Politics and International Relations. Whilst it is a much better university than Cov,UWE etc I would struggle there initially. I can speak and write in Russian but not at a university essay standard so the effort I would have to put in would be unreal. Also I'd be surrounded by people smarter than me since I can only get a place there since my mum has links ennit blud. But a degree from here would mean a guaranteed good job in Russia. My whole family lives in Russia which is a plus but I'd have to sacrifice my mates and the sport I play.

    I need to decide asap but I'm so stumped. What would you do in my shoes.

    From what you've told us it would probably boil down to whether you can learn Russian quickly enough to a university standard. Obviously in a situation like this there are so many things that need to be taken into account which only you know, but if I were you, I'd go to the Russian Uni and work my ass of to learn Russian as quickly as possible.

    I imagine the type of networking you could do in Russia would be amazing.
