I'm an American thinking of doing my postgrad studies in Glasgow (I'm applying to University of Glasgow). I've been reading all these articles calling Glasgow the most dangerous city in Europe and statistics that say that 75% of the residents believe it's not safe to go out after dark, etc, etc. Are things really that bad? Or is the violence mainly restricted to certain parts of town (like it is in many US cities)? My impression is that the East End is the bad side of town while the rest of the city is pretty safe- am I correct?
