    Hello, I have applied this year (already sent my UCAS form off) to Cambridge (St Catz), SOAS, Durham, Bristol (who I already have an offer from), and UCL to study Anthropology, however, I'm getting major cold feet on my application to UCL. It is highly unlikely that I will go there, as I don't really like the idea of living in London as a student very much (I am aware SOAS is a London-based uni, however it doesn't matter much to me since I love their course so much), and I am thinking that maybe I should swap it for Exeter. This particular application would be a BSc. I prefer the campus based lifestyle of Exeter, and although the course isn't as good, I feel I would have a better uni experience, plus this course would enable me to get involved with forensic anthropology, as well as engaging with the classic theories. Does anyone have any advice they could give to me regarding these unis, and which option I should take?? Would be much appreciated! As a grade reference, I am predicted A*A*A*, and only have until Wednesday 18th to swap. Thanks!

    If you already dislike the idea of studying in London (bar SOAS, as you said) then it seems like you can't really lose by switching to Exeter, and they both sound like your 5th choices so...
