    Hi everybody. Well, all of my admissions decisions came in for school and it looks like I'm going to the University of St. Andrews. I was just wondering if anybody ever lived in the area or had any words of wisdom on going to University in Scotland.

    I suspect uni at St Andrews is a very different experience from that to be had at any other scots uni.... its only a wee town, and vastly vastly posh.

    best way to prepare for it ? make sure yir parents are either members of the royal family, or at the very least, front bench MPs.

    either that, or rob a bank.

    St Andrews is a very nice little town, but with good links to Edinburgh and Glasgow. I imagine you will find it a bit of a focus for a while with Prince William just having graduated. I'm currently living in Glasgow so if you want to drop me a line when you're over here feel free.
    Be Well

    I went to St Andrews Uni - a while ago. :)

    Yes, there were quite a few 'posh folk' (known as the 'Okay Yahs') but most of us were just ordinary people from ordinary towns. The students outnumber the locals, which can sometimes cause a bit of town/gown bad feeling, but mostly everyone gets on. It's a lovely wee town, with lots of historic stuff, a nice beach, and some great pubs.

    Hope you have a as good a time there as I did.
