Notts vs Bath

Hi I really need help deciding between going to Nottingham or Bath for Chemical Engineering. I really like both, though I'm slightly leaning towards Nottingham, but I'm not really sure about its reputation amongst employers especially in the finance industry.
Which the two would be seen as more prestigious to an employer
(in the finance)?
Can students from either university give their opinions on their experience? Or anyone else that can input, really need it!
Between these two, 'reputation' is like splitting hairs. Both are excellent Unis.

Both are target Unis by employers, and Bath's management/finance courses will always mean that they attract those from that area. Bath's placement system is probably the best in the UK, and this would immediately add enormously to your graduate CV, whatever careers area you eventually choose. Bath also has fantastic sports facilities and even if you are not a 'sports person' a whopping great swimming for a lazy Sunday afternoon swim is always a bonus.

Okay thanks! Do you go to Bath? If so, how's your experience there in general?
