    Have you visited the places? WHat did you think of them? Whereabouts in the country would you rather live?
    Even more importantly...What course style do you prefer: of those listed, some are PBL and some are more traditional courses. Do you want early clinical experience? Eg Cardiff, you get very little patient contact in the first 2 years, but HYMS you get a lot more.
    It's not a case of which we think are the best, it's got to be you who decides as you could be spending 5/6 years there so you have to be happy.

    at the moment i would just be researching the courses and trying to find out what would suit you (HYMS, Barts and Manchester are PBL - is that for you?).
    i wouldn't be deciding anything just yet. wait till you sit the ukcat as that will help you narrow down your choices, because Sheffield use it a lot (you needed 670+ for an interview this year, and 625+ for Manchester). Bart's have a cut off, and leicester and HYMS operate on a points system.

    As Isometrix has quite rightly pointed out you have applied to some very different courses.

    Could I be so bold as to ask you to explain what draws you to those places?
