This is the exact same situation I'm in. Except I'm looking at Arts at both UoM and at ANU.
I've accepted both offers and now I'm confused on which to take. I'm leaning mnore to ANU now, but I'm worried about getting accommodation. I'm still under consideration for my first preference though. :S

I've enrolled in melbourne and have already chosen my subjects. I guess it would have to be UoM after all. UoM's a great uni, but i can't help thinking that im missing something by not going to ANU, even though its pretty much impossible at this stage, given the scarcity and cost of accommodation.

If you do choose UoM, Rietie, look me up. Surname's Bong(no joke), the only such Bong in the state.

Yea i had to choose between ANU and UoM aswell, and after attending UoM academic advice day this is how i wayed it up. (I live in melb)
Breadth - can make things more flexible/interesting
dont have to worry about accomodation/flights
High school freinds
Nice buildings, close to city

You would probably get more out of uni in a social sense when living on campus
High risk -if you hate the course/atmosphere theirs not much you can do aside from dropping out alltogether (while at UoM you could just attend the compulsory classes then spend your time with outside freinds)
Going to study in Canberra still has that nerdy/boring stigma

I picked UoM in the end btw
