    Overrated?! I've never heard that been said about UCL before! In what way would you say it is overrated, if I may ask?
    Oh that's good to hear then.
    It has a big reputation because of research and some specialities such as neuroscience. Other courses are likely better taught at other universities but the name UCL' just attracts people. I don't regret studying here but I drfinitely wouldn't try to sell it to anyone.

    Mine would be the lack of active societies. (Aberdeen Uni)

    Edit: someone mentioned that we should say our university names so feel free to add that in

    Oh I'm at Aberdeen too. What year are you and what are you studying?

    I'd add library lifts breaking all the time and the library during exam periods.

    The bit I bolded about your flatmate having a dark side? I was intrigued.
    Ooh sorry I can't see the bold font on the mobile app!
    Essentially, I thought she was the sweetest girl in the world when I first moved in. Helped me with my things, gave me a hug and made me feel so welcome. I saw that she was incredibly nice to everyone else too, including my other flatmate.

    Next thing you know she gossips and back chats about people she claimed to "like". I worry she may also be doing that behind my back too! Was quite a shocker.

    The whole self-promotion/PR crap. The number of times I see top 1% in the world, Russell Group, rated what-the-****-ever for research excellence, etc. I wish they'd spent less money on marketting stuff and more on fixing the damned microwave.

    That said, really like the degree and several lecturers have gone out of their alway to help me, so on balance it's a minor complaint.

    The rooms I have my lecture's in are really really warm they either have the sun shining on them all day so it gets warm and I fall a sleep or they have lots of pc's running all day which warms up the room and again makes me fall asleep apart from that I love it.

    She was just incredibly mysterious and had very strong (but irrational) opinions about everything, had a very judgemental stare. It was my gossipy flatmate that plotted the idea into my head though, that she's creepy and could "murder us".
