    Should I even bother?

    I know I want to stay fairly close to home, and in the uni's I've looked at I've found exactly six courses I like the look of.

    Two at Northampton, one at Newman, one at UCE, one at Gloucestershire, and one at De Montfort.

    I would have to go there for my interviews anyway, so is there really any point spending dosh getting there and back when I'm offered the chance during interviewing too?

    Any ideas would be good.
    Thanks

    Keep an open mind. I'd visit more places than I'd apply to. Open Days are experiences and can be exciting. You don't have much to lose except a few quid. You might be able to get a few days off school as well!

    Yeah, and plus you might visit them and find you hate some of them (like me and Nottingham!)

    There is a lot of travelling involved. I only visited three of the six universities I'd applied for but even that cost me a fair amount by train and plane. At the very least visit the Uni's you want to make your firm and insurance, otherwise you may end up regretting it later (though hopefully this is rare!).
