In summary, the individual has received conditional offers from the University of Manchester and Bath, both of which are of similar difficulty in terms of AP scores. They are considering dropping one of the offers for a safety option, but are unsure which one to choose. They have applied for an Aerospace Engineering MEng program with a year of industrial experience and are seeking advice. One person suggests Manchester based on the city and department, while another mentions the reputation of Bath as a "watering hole" for certain types of students. The individual is leaning towards Manchester due to the city and positive experiences from current students, but is still unsure and seeking more information.

I've got conditional offers from the University of Manchester and Bath, and they're about the same difficulty (5 on AP Calc.BC and AP Statistics, Bath accepts 5 for Chemistry)

I'm planning to drop one of them from my choice since I need a safety (which probably will be the university of Southampton)
But I still can't decide which one to drop.

I applied for the Aerospace Engineering MEng program with a year of industrial experience

Could someone give me advice?

I would say Manchester just because of the city. Depends what you are into but it is a big city and i am sure there is something for everyone.

In terms of the department i would say Manchester has the edge, it is 3 years since I made my choice and I was doing physics rather than engineering but Manchester looked really good and was my second choice. I have also heard good things about the engineering dept at soutampton so don't feel too bad if you don't get what you want.

I'm on Aerospace at Manchester. The city was the deciding factor for me over Bristol and Southampton, and having some of the best nightlife in the country on my doorstep, along with thousands of undergrads to share it with really has made a world of difference.
I've had nothing but good experiences of the course so far (1st year undergrad).
Hope that helps

Bath has a bit of a reputation as a watering hole for public school types. So does it expect high grades because the course is good or because it's where the well-trained 'in crowd' go? I know someone who did aerospace at manchester and went on to have a very high flying career. But, to be honest, I'm not sure which is best department. Dig some more!
