Hi all!
I am a year 13 student applying for medicine. I currently hold offers from KCL, Sheffield and Nottingham, and am waiting to hear back from Bristol.

I have ruled out KCL since I am not keen on living in London and did not like the feel when I went to their interview. Although I initially liked Sheffield, and haven't ruled it out, nothing in particular about it stands out to me.

I loved the feel of Nottingham on their open day, and the accommodation is amazing. However I also really liked the city of Bristol and somebody very close to me is going there. This leaves me torn between the two universities and I cannot choose which to have as my firm.

I have an offer holder day booked for both Nottingham and Sheffield but cannot do anything at Bristol since I do not yet have an offer.

I am wondering if anybody has any experience of these universities or courses that could help me to make my decision?

I would ideally like to make my decision as soon as possible since accommodation opens for Nottingham on Friday and I do not want to miss out on an en-suite room.

Many thanks

No accommodation is confirmed until results day. Don't be rushed into making a decision. And the more expensive accommodation is often the most available...

Nottingham is so cheap that I feel people will go for the more expensive ones, but I could be entirely wrong. I just know I wouldn't survive with a shared bathroom !!

But I know I shouldn't rush and decide entirely on that.
