Glasgow rather than Strathclyde for me as well. Still not 100% of course.

Nope, I've preferred the idea of Glasgow since the visits. But anyway, I got conditions for both since I only did 3 highers this year so not really a decision I would make based on that.

I have unconditionals from both Glasgow and Strathclyde but I still prefer Glasgow. I wasn't too keen on Strathclyde when I visited in September.
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.

i have always prefered Strathclyde and you know i can't tell you why maybe its just because i spent 10 days there in June and got a true feeling for it

If i am not here i am somewhere else

I think I will put down Stirling as an insurance acceptance, assuming I get an unconditional.

I havent got any offers yet, afaik, cause i dont have my ucas thing yet.

Out of the 6 i put down there's only 3 i really want into:

* Law - strathclyde/glasgow. If i got into both i don't know which one i'd choose. I hear Glasgow's better, but i quite fancy strathclyde uni.
*Arts and social sciences- strathclyde. Just a xourse that looks really good because there's a wide range of choice in 1st year.

I wish i would get some bloomin' offers though!

Cambridge is my first choice (although all hope of that will probably be shattered on hogmany which is when they send out their offers and rejections)

After that it's Glasgow then Edinburgh and then as a last hope, Aberdeen

That's for medicine by the way.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

I don't currently have the grades for Edinburgh but I hope I can get in if I can get good grades this year. I'm planning some more visits including Stirling for Comp. Sci. on the 16th of February.

I haven't had any offers yet, but I want to go to Glasgow Uni. Because it looks like Hogwarts. And because the West End of Glasgow is pretty. And if I went to Strathclyde, I'd spend all my free time living in TopShop, which wouldn't be good for my Poor Student bank balance.

I think I want to go to Strathclyde uni over Glasgow just because I felt more impressed with the department at Strathclyde (Computing Science) than Glasgow's.

But I agree the old building at Glasgow Uni is nice. smile.gif

Bah, I don't know, to be honest I don't see much difference between Glasgow and Strathclyde, I'm also doing computer science in 2005 and I think Glasgow scores better in those newspaper "top uni" lists.

Well I didn't feel there was too much of a difference but I felt more at home at Strathclyde. I was more impressed with the organisation of their open day.

I dunno it's hard to know if you're making the right decisions isn' it!?

yeah i definetly wish i had inside advice from a lectorer that knows the happenings in both uni's.

but strthclyde seems more into engineering and science(technical stuff like computing) than Glasgow which is more into the classics and similar stuff

If i am not here i am somewhere else
