I'm grateful to have received offers from all of these schools for med, but I'm not sure which one to firm - could anyone help/give advice?
Wow. Congratulations indeed on those amazing offers. Well done.
I have no insight on the med schools particularly so will leave that to others to comment on. There are some course style differences I think.
But I would say that there is a very very different student life in Cambridge to London based unis. CAmbridge is not cheap though, but nor is London but the vibe of the town is very student forward and the town is equal or slightly lower in prominence. London is big and all consuming and you would be a student in London which as a city is far more city centered than student centered if you see what I mean.
I havent been a student in London but have been in Cambridge. Also worked at Addenbrookes and local hospitals which were all great places to be. Locationa and lifestyle wise it would be an easy choice for me.
Placements likely to be more spread out though than London unis I suspect.
Go to open days, or if you cant, spend some time googling street views etc. As well as digging into the course.
