Hey,

I'm starting to worry a lot about making the wrong decisions for uni in September but I think I still have time to change if I act now. At first I applied for Law at Brunel and got in, but I'm not sure if I made the right choice. I'm looking at Hertfordshire but according to the league tables it's not very good for law. I wanted to know what universities are good for Law which are near London or at least within simple train journeys from London. I took the international Baccalaureate at got 31 points. I was looking at UEA too, but noticed it's about 3 hours away

I'm so confused!

Other uni's i've considered:
Reading
QMUL
Surrey
Kent
Essex
UEA


Cheers guys,
Jordan

Excuse me Herts is a damn good uni....ha ha i wouldn't pay any attention to league tables either they dont mean much there just stuck up...if you want a good time go herts :P

on a more serious note its prob to late to change most places will be filled up and it would cause alot of fuss

Thanks guys,
I realise few places will be available now but ultimately I have changed from Brunel to Hertfordshire and wanted to know if the change wasn't a mistake...

UEA looks like a very nice uni, quite modern too by the looks of the photos on their website Only thing is, it's quite a way from London

If you are hoping to pursue a career as a barrister or as a solicitor in a big City firm, you are going to struggle. It won't be completely impossible, but you're going to have to work very, very hard to even get a look in.

I realise this the annoying thing is according to UCAS I have enough points to get into any university I want (3 As and a C), would be nice to have Oxbridge, UCL, Kings or LSE on my CV but unfortunately universities don't understand the IB that well.

I suggest you think carefully about this. Unless there's a pressing need to be close to home (sick family member etc) then you risk damaging your future employment prospects by going to a less well-regarded university for the wrong reasons.
