Just don't get your hopes up too much. Anyway there are plenty of other excellent places to study law; if you don't get into Leeds it isn;t the end of the day.
Yea, I know but out of the other places I have applied to -
Pros: Local credible Uni, Parents will be local (even though I would choose halls for the 1st year). I know the city and there isn't the whole hassle of having to up sticks and get to know somewhere new that I may not like. Has the 4th best graduate employment statistics in the country (this is a real, objective statistic). Also my father is friendly with most local solicitors through his job and getting work experience in the summer should be (hopefully) not too mch of a problem. Also they seem to favour local students and due to the location of the place it is not a hot spot that gets oversuscribed and in the worst case of me not getting the grades they are most likley out of all my choices to still take me.
Cons: Ranked lowest out of all places I have applied to (does this actually mean anything?) Do I really want to stay local?
Pros: Good course, er...Isolated Campus setup leads to student bonding, or something. Accomodation being above Lecture Theatres means that I can get our of bed at 08:55 for a 9:00 lecture.
Isolated campus could lead to insular "boarding school" mentality (I hated boarding school). The fact you are in a small City means lack of possible student employment. Not much in the town and thought it was like a crap version of York. Is Lancaster anything but a place between Preston and Scotland? THE ONLY REASON THIS PLACE IS A CITY IS BECAUSE OF THE CATHEDERAL hence the fact I have basically called it a town.
Good Uni, My Hometown and all in all a very decent place (although I only lived there for about three years). 4:1 ratio of women to men in the City and er...my dad went there, but not to do Law!
At night it is supposably a warzone, can't really think of anything else.
Good Uni, friends studied various subjects there and enjoyed the experience. I know the City and know the layout of "studentville". I also lived there for some time whilst working in Lancashire.
Did not enjoy living in Manchester (although this was probably more to do with my personal circumstances at the time). Perhaps I would see it differently from a student perspective. Also it always rains there.
