    Hi, guys! I'm currently facing a dilemma regarding my university choice. I will apply in a week to 5 universities here, in uk, and I'm not quite sure which to choose.
    I can not decide between Lancaster and Birmingham for my first choice. I have to mention that I'm going for business and management studies.
    If you could give me some solutions it will be great.

    If you put Birmingham as your insurance and want accommodation in halls the first year, watch out! You will get the impression all year that all is fine, then probably not get offered anything, or (almost worse) get offered something two weeks before term begins. This is what happened to my daughter this year and it was only after calling them and screaming my head off that they came up with a room in an expensive private hall two miles from campus. She is really happy there thank goodness but they seriously could not have cared less about finding something for her. It was just our tough luck because we 'weren't part of their guarantee scheme'.
