I'm applying to uni in the 2015 cycle, and I applied to biochemistry at Imperial and Natural Sciences in Cambridge. I've got my Imperial offer and I got invited for interview at Cambridge, and I know my place at Cambridge is by no means secured, but I was thinking forward that even if I do get an offer from Cambridge, I'm not sure if I would choose it over Imperial? I really can't decide between the two... Which one do you think is 'better' for life sciences courses and what do you think are the pros and cons of each?

Life sciences is quite a difficult choice between the two. One on hand cambrdudge has an abundance of wildlife and nature and good social/night life, loads of local college clubs, but it's also a popular tourist attraction and I'm assuming you don't live there, train tickets are expensive considering the amount of times oh would need to travel back and forth from home to uni.
Imperial is in London, more convienient and cheaper for transport, less academically pressuring, an abundance of activites and clubs in London.

Cambridge is good for most sciences but I find that it's better for physical natsci than biological natsci. Imperial too, is more based on tech than bio so the choice is a pretty tough one to make :/
