    Would really love to get into Vet Physio and focus on horses as it is becoming a big thing as more owners and competitive riders are understanding how it can help horses. Though I am willing to do anything involving animals.

    5. to be honest i can see why someone would pick 1 (cheaper) and 5 (maximum chance of getting offer) but i really dont se why anything in between, Dont suppose anyone can tell me why someone would pick 2-4? Theyre the same price as 5, you're theoretically setting urself at a disadvantage when i think about it

    I applied to four: Oxford, York, Durham and Bath.
    Since I'm applying with grades, I should get unconditional offers, and I've got above the required grades for all but Oxford. I left the fifth choice blank because I couldn't choose a fifth option, and if it does go badly and I get no offers before the deadline then I can find a final safer choice with lower entry requirements.
    I thought it would be a better idea than applying somewhere I really don't want to go to and then completely ignoring their offer anyway.
