To be fair to him the St Andrews social scene is genuinely **** / non-existent. I was just over the river at Dundee and we went over for an... Err... "night out" once. It's like two pubs and a co-op. It makes Dundee nightlife look vibrant. And that's really saying something... As Dundee is probably best described as five good bars, a hundred rough pubs, two or three dodgy nightclubs and the Uni Union.

Go to the library and study, that is what you are there for, its not a social club
Well a huge part of uni is supposed to be social. And, no I'm not talking about the partying aspect. But the whole point of university is learning with others and meeting, mixing with new people.

I should actually probably add... My first jaunt to Uni was Glasgow Uni and I didn't actually like it much . Sort of stuffy learning environment and a fairly pretentious social scene at Glasgow Uni itself. Though you obviously have a huge extended social scene to choose from.

Even I say this, and I'm almost done. "Uni life" is highly overrated. I barely do anything different to what I did at home, I just live alone and do my own thing. There's a huge stereotype for the typical "student" I think.

I was appalled to read this. Cheating your way through life? How would you feel if your boss thought up ways to cheat you out of your salary?

i am honestly considering applying to glasgow - the **** thing is they don't do transfers, so i'd need to start from year 1 with people two years younger than me. i just don't know if it's worth it, but i'm thinking of just applying anyway, and seeing how second year at st andrews goes
Didn't you check out St. Andrews before accepting? Also forgive me for saying it, but you seem far more interested in the social side of uni, rather than anything else.

Maybe, go to a nearby city to experience a better gay scene. Don't feel like you need to change university purely for that reason, it's not worth it. You should prioritise your education.
