    It was a tough decision. On the one hand, Southampton was an amazing place, and I'd rather stay there than London and it was tons cheaper so the financial side of things would be more manageable. The course also looked good. Plenty to do as well and large shopping centres, the accommodation was also miles better for the price, although that's a minor point.

    The course at Imperial was good as well and being London, there's also plenty to do, although a bit crowded for my liking. Honestly though... I chose Imperial because I thought the clinical experience would be better, given the number of tertiary care centres in London and all that, and for the compulsory intercalated year. I might change my mind, but I've always wanted to intercalate and doing it at Southampton... well, you don't have much choice, even if you get a MSc and when you're done, you're in a different year group trying to break into already tight-knit friendship circles.

    It probably could have gone either way and now, it seems some people are saying that clinical experience in large hospitals isn't as good as it's made to be because it's far too busy and there isn't much teaching time :p:

    I loved it when I visited. The campus and accommodation were gorgeous, the students were really helpful and Prof. Lote was so nice and chatty!
