I've been trying to decide between Imperial and Warwick for about
a month now. My top two university choices were JMC at IC and
MMath at Warwick.
The annoying thing was that I never got to visit Warwick.
But according to their website and most of the discussion here,
the new maths department should be very nice. And it has a good rep.
But then again, same goes for the computing department at IC.
However, the tought of going to live somewhere like Coventry
after the first year didn't really appeal to me at all. All of my friends
who have studied in UK (I'm an international student btw),
say that I should definately go study in London. Should be an amazing
place to live. Of course this depends on your personality.
But I like living in a big city, so..
So far I've lived in Frankfurt and Helsinki.
And a plus thing is that i got around 8 of my friends studying in
London and only one in Warwick. But then again, I'd probably be
making lots of friends anyhow so doesn't really make difference.
But it's always fun to hang around with old friends from "back in tha days"
Anyhow, I made my decision yesterday.. Imperial it is.
I'll start JMC this Autumn at IC (given I get the grades naturally).
Should be good, can't wait!
Don't mind the workload,
that's why I'm going to university - to get drowned in work!
There'll alwas be time for some serious partying, and what would
be a better place for that than London (excellent but expensive)
