    Of the two, I prefered the Warwick campus, but the York course. Have you visited?
    Nah. But I figured, york is a better university, the grade requirements for PPE are higher, it's a brand new course, all looks very exciting.

    I thought it was brand new at Warwick, not York? And the typical grade requirements were AAB for both, I thought. Or do you mean your offers? I'm not sure if either would be considered significantly better for PPE.
    Sorry I meant Warwick. The grade requirements are slightly higher, Warwick's are AAB whereas York's are AAB/ABB.

    The guy at York told me only a few people get the ABB offer... I got an AAB offer, so kind of regarded them as the same.

    I found visiting helped a lot, especially with a subject like PPE where you're studying in more than one department. It makes it that bit harder to decide, as there are three departments to be considered. I found it helpful to visit and talk to people from all areas. At York, though, it is just the one department, which could be seen as a pro or a con, i guess.
    I think as a uni though, Warwick has a lot more kudos. Also, York course is fairly rigid, Warwick's is much more malleable.

    I'm going for history, not PPE, but I'd say pick the one you think you'd feel most comfortable at. I chose York over Warwick ( the offers were the same), as it was somewhere I could see myself being happy at. Don't pick one for kudos, remember you have to spend 3 years of your life there!

    I think then, if I were you, I'd go for Warwick. I did find the Warwick accomodation/campus to be far nicer, and the guy from the Politics department was great.

    Are you applying for 2005 entry, or making your final decision?
    Nah I'm making my final decision now and I only have just over a day.

    Is this for your firm or insurance?
    Lol I'm not sure about even that.

    Unfortunately, I don't believe Warwick and York have equal Kudos at all; if they did, I'd find this decision far harder. I believe York is the most overshadowed of the top 10 unis.

    Here's how I figure it:

    Reputation: Warwick wins
    Environment: Warwick wins
    Course: Warwick wins

    I see no reason to choose York over Warwick, i think...
