    common opinion. On the thread "Do you feel special going to a prestigious uni?" not one Scottish Uni was mentioned as being prestigious.

    I laughed in disjust at this reply:

    Don't kid yourself. Aberdeen has about as much prestige as rabbit droppings. It's not even in the top 3 unis of that ****** place called Scotland!

    That's surprising! There's not that many up here that would be counted as prestigious though plus there are alot of lesser know unis up here that people outside Scotland aren't familiar with and wont take a second look at.

    St Andrews has got to be up there though, surely?

    I was literally about to say that. Absolutely hilarious comment. Aberdeen is a good uni, people in England don't really consider as a place to apply to as it is so far north.

    Can I ask, why the English choice?

    I've applied to the same Scottish institues as you along with Dundee . For Ecology and Conservation (hopefully @ St A's), Ecological Science, Marine/Freshwater Bio and Environmental Sustainability.

    I would have thought so too but if that thread is mostly English occupied then there might be some bias.

    I wanted to apply to one of the top unis and durham was the highest one that I would have a slight chance of getting in to...and it looks really nice but the funding is a major issue. Might have to change it to Dundee or Stirling for backup incase I get rejected from the other ones. :p:

    Have more confidence as if you have the grades you have a very good chance of getting an offer plus the likes of Aberdeen can be used as a safe bet, the amount of clearing spaces this year was saying something.

    Durham is a damn fine choice, especially for English! I would recommend at least having a visit if you are thinking of dropping it for other choices. I very nearly chose to go there.
