Heey, I just read your post from a while back about London Met, and I am in pretty much the same position! I'm going there to study Architecture in September, though I got AAAD last year for AS (bloody D, ruined everything haha) and I did have my concerns about the reputation of the uni, and what kinds of people there'd be, but I've just decided, fuck it! The course is good, I want to live in east London, I'm getting a degree at the end of it, it's cool! For creative subjects, it's not so bad :)
At the beginning I was really dreading it but since then I’ve only heard good things about the art and design department. I’m just going to go in with an open mind and get as much as I can from it :)
Architecture is moving into the Central House campus so you’ll be on the floor below me, see you there haha :)
Are you staying in halls?
