Hey, so I've applied to Kings College London, UCL, Sussex, Bristol and Cambridge. I've only got offers from Sussex and Kings so far and rejected from Cam.
My issue is that I am stuck between taking a gap year and reapplying to different unis or going to one of the ones i've applied to. I feel like I made the wrong choices with unis and would prefer to be sure of my choice then go half heartedly. I made a lot of assumptions about unis and now regret them. My issue regardless, however, comes down to whether to live in a city or campus/in london. I have grown up in London and so i'm drawn to the busy lifestyle as opposed to more quiet small places, and so automatically thought i could not handle that. However, I have now looked at Durham and similar places and really seem to like them - ofc I would need to visit to make sure. But I just wondered if anyone else from London/big cities has been able to enjoy a calmer lifestyle, and not have the constant buzz of London - not even in the clubbing way, but rather in the diversity and simple hussle and bussle (lol) of London? I'm scared i'd go crazy in a small place like Durham, yet the culture and history intrigue me?
I'm also considering going through adjustment.
OH! and i want to study english but would most likely want to go into film/screenwriting after uni, so a gap year could work for getting experience in that but then going to uni for an english degree (as i love both subjects equally!)
