    I was so excited to apply to Leeds but my teachers are always saying negative things and that I could do better. I haven't been able to visit the University but I was wondering... is there any truth to what they're saying about the course being bad?

    You’d have to find out online about other people’s experience. Also I would recommend visiting the university. It’s the only way to get a true feel of the course.

    I know a few in MechEng and they all seem happy
    Bit rude to say 'you can do better', if it's where you want to go and where you think you'll be happiest then it will be best place for you

    When I went for the open day, everyone in the engineering department was so helpful and lovely. If anything, the whole place had a nice vibe about it so hence why I'm applying

    Besides that, the uni is ranked high for Mech Eng so I don't see how you could do "better" (unless you're applying for Oxbridge).

    Ah i'm glad you've said this - puts my mind at ease. Fingers crossed I get an offer, it would be so cool to get into to a top uni. Good luck for getting into the university of your choice
