    So I wanted to do medicine but after applying to 4 medical unis and getting rejected from all of them I decided that I'm not wasting any more time on it and so I will be taking another route. Thing is Bristol rejected me for medicine but made a counter offer for molecular medicine (I only need 32 IB points for it) and my 5th choice also made me an offer - biology course at York (38 points).

    Thing is I'm not sure where to go. I don't care about medicine that much and I want to get a good pay working after I finish uni (possibly for private sector or the government), which degree would have more options? Also a factor I'm concerned with is how good the campuses are, I know for a fact that York's campus looks post-soviet with very plain concrete buildings and the city is around 20-30 minutes away on a bus which is extremely inconvenient, however I did not have a chance to visit Bristol.

    I'm really not sure which uni to go for, York does have a reputation for having the best bio course in the country and I suppose 38 pts entry requirement feel more "serious"? Bristol on the other hand looks a lot more "fun" and convenient for student life, and the campus looks a lot nicer from the pictures, not sure about the accommodation though.

    Help please.

    The CMM course at Bristol has a major plus - you do a common first year and then specialise. This gives you maximum flexibility as your interests develop during the first year, and means you end up with an in-depth degree not something general. You can also do a Year in Industry which gives a big boost to your CV and 'experience' when you go for your first jobs : http://www.bristol.ac.uk/cellmolmed/...undergraduate/

    And Bristol is an amazing city to be a student in : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khM7tjui86Q
