    Basically I accepted a place at Salford university last August. Two days after results day I rang UCAS up and pulled my application out because I had decided against university.
    Now I'm thinking that I made a bad decision and that I could reapply for next year. But it would be at Salford again. Would I just be wasting my time?

    Don't apply there - it's hardly like you're missing out on a second app to cambridge or wherever is it.

    I decided to pull out of university because my dream is to fly airliners, and after speaking to a few of my pals who are flying for a living with airlines at Newcastle, I decided against it because none of them did. So I thought to myself why am I wasting 3 years when I could be persuring my dream now, but it isnt going so well, with the credit crunch and lack of jobs and things, plus I've just come back from visiting a friend at uni in Leeds so I may of got the bug slightly.

    So to answer your question River85, no I dont think I am, and thank you for making me realise that. Again lol *Slaps himself in face*

    You're missing the point. I was saying that Salford was not unique so there was no need to waste another application on it when close subsitutes are readily available.

    It was no a comment on the academic standards of Salford, although I could make one too.

    How do you know Salfrod isn't unique? Every uni has unique aspects. It can be a very unique to the OP.

    The OP clearly wants to go to Salford, accept it. If you can't provide advice or support just don't post anything at all.

    I did post advice - that applying for a uni you withdrew from last year is a bad idea. :shifty: Attempting to reapply is bad given the increased rejection risk stemming from this and the fact that close subsitutes are available...:rolleyes:

    No, your first post clearly suggested the OP shouldn't apply there as it wasn't very good (it's not Cambridge).

    Are you an expert in university applications? How do you know the admissions tutor will even recognise his name and know he has previously applied? Even if does, that wouldn't necessarily bias him.

    You'll be fine! I went to uni 3 years ago and then a month later just changed my mind. I'm now in my second year at the same uni!
