That's great that you're both excited about Bristol, and you should be! Obviously I can't speak for the vet school but the city itself is awesome, I love living here. The balloon Fiesta is like a famous thing, but there's a few things like that in summer. The best thing about Bristol is it can be exactly what you want it to be - if you want it to be really chilled out and relaxed then it is, equally, it has good nightlife and stuff as well. It's such a good mix of the two.

I feel I should perhaps warn you though that the only bad thing about Bristol is bus fares. For some reason it's more expensive here than anywhere else I've been. But luckily, you can walk pretty much everyone between town and the centre that you need to really easily.

Also, I've read a few posts saying people are gonna bring cats/dogs to uni in 2nd year, is this true? Who lets you do it, because that's brilliant if so!
I am defo hopin to get a dog for 2nd year if i go to notts. I think it wd be possible in other unis to but probalbly better having a cat in the city but at notts its countryside Also you can book your dog into the uni at notts for the day when you want! Quite a few notts students do it!

well i do actually think what was said on the dog matter was something along the lines of you cant book them in for more than 3 days in a row and you have to book in advance cause they get full up.

We have an old amplefordians news things for my college - and even though i've been gone several years i'm going to put a piece in the news section about my offers and stick that up their *?&%* for all their negative comments and the fact they never thought i could do it - first time around they gave me a 1 line reference :mad: 'Saph usually achieves something eventually when she puts her mind to it' that was it ! :rolleyes: Grrrr! This time i have lovley reference which i'm sure helped me a lot...
That's shameful! What is wrong with people? I don't understand why some are so keen to put others down all the time, especially teachers. They're meant to be encouraging students to go for what they want to in life, not telling people they aren't good enough and making them doubt themselves. I'm really sick of hearing how common it is. They need to realise that no-one achieves anything when they don't believe in themselves and they aren't helping by being so negative. They could be destroying someones future with their stupid, idiotic comments. Anyone can do anything when they put their mind to it and all that is needed is a bit of encouragement! More people respond to that than stupid put downs by arrogant abnoxious, sat on their high horse teachers. Grrrrr!

So well done Nellied and anyone else who's proven these type of people wrong! SHAME ON THEM!!!!!

Hey, thanks! It's great to hear about the city from an actual Bristolian. Shame about the buses =(

You can bring them if you find a place where the landlord allows pets, and apparently lots of 2nd/3rd years bring their pets along with them. Also, if you're going to be living with vets I don't think any of them would mind it.

My cat's a bit too house-trained ;( Haha, I don't think they would ever drink vodka even if you presented it to them lol. Arthur hates minty smells, so if I'm chewing gum he scrunches up his face and tries to get further away lol.

Yeah...my first reference from school was pretty crap....there was a sentence..'una rarely criticises others'...erm doesnt that imply that sometimes i do?! i dont even know where she got that from anyway...cranky. anyway you're entitled to see the reference before it is sent and voice any issues you have with it. It's always good to double check EVERYTHING the school SHOULD have checked...ie putting the wrong grades in the reference etc. grrr teachers

for my school reference you have to be interviewed by two seperate teachers at seperate times. its a pain booking time slots and you have to pick atleast one head. they don't put anything bad in it. they only comment on the good, but your not allowed to read it, if u ask u get a huge lecture on trust.
it must have been good as i got interviews.

If I ever brought my cats along, they would be into everything. They're just a bunch of mischief-makers really.
Take this one. Looks like an "angel" doesn't he?

http://i42.tinypic.com/2vdpc76.jpg

He steals socks (somehow) from other people's houses and sneaks into their garages, so he comes back covered in muck. Love him though.
Does anyone know if Edinburgh people can take their pets with them btw?

I would love to bring my westie to uni later on after a few years, but she's too attatched to my mum. You know like with that template thing where the first thing a duck sees it literally follows and won't let out of its sight, well my dog has that with my mum. If I took her anywhere she'd just cry and cry lols

You wouldn't be allowed in any of the halls. If you could find a shared house where the landlord and none of your housemates mind I suppose you could though. Might be easier in the second year though once you've made some friends, I would say that'd be easier!
