    You're too humble.

    KCL, UCL and LSE will definitely all feature on my UCAS form.

    I would derive much pride and pleasure from studying at any one of the aforesaid institutions - along with the technical college in South Kensington, these places truly are the jewel in the crown of UofL.

    It goes almost without saying, that you will be under the tutorage of world-class scholars, who make a sizeable contribution to cutting-edge thinking.

    Not sarcasm - I just think you should be more affirming of your talents.

    I live in Birmingham.

    I really want to go to a London university in 2005 though.

    what does that mean

    i've lived in cities all my life. i don't think i could stand not living in one.

    BTW kingslaw, I have lots of law books in excellent condition (never used in some cases) - many are still the same edition as in the shops.

    Fancy buying any? I could sell all of them to you for one price, or on an individual basis. I can e-mail a list if you're interested.

    I also have a few essays - but I'd give those for free.

    Definitely, Warwick is in the doldrums as far as location is concerned. Nobody would shed any tears were Coventry to be deleted from the national consciousness. I know for a fact that most Warwick students would not be bothered to go to Birmingham in order to fulfill their social/retail desires - it is not a simple journey whatsoever. Probably about £50+ in a black cab and by no means a straightforward train journey.

    London is the hub.

    Apparently York is planning a massive expansion to its campus and student population within this decade, which will include the creation of a law faculty.

    Bath are another guilty party - as they pupport to be more of a technical/sciences institution (in the mould of say, Imperial) and yet do not offer Medicine and other notable disciplines.

    It's not the universites fault they don't offer a subject.

    No - it's the candidates fault for falling in love with a place before they actually research where they offer their subject or not.

    True. To be honest though, I would have thought that York should offer a law course - not that I have 'fallen in love with the place', infact quite opposite. For what is a popular subject, offered at several top-flight institutions - it just stuck me as bizarre that York did not offer the course. There is an expectation that every top institution should offer law, unless its specialisms clearly lie elsewhere (e.g. Imperial and Bath).

    For something like dentistry (which is only offered at about 10 places, I think) then obviously it would be a lot more problematic to make assumptions about which institutions offer the course.
