Personally, I would have to say it had got to do with the descriptions they gave under each title: fascinating enough to spark interest but with not enough details to milk information from. Also, there were several 'rules' that we had to stick to, such as the allocation of a certain number of credits for pre-seventeenth century modules so that we can have a broader historical reading. A good idea, actually, although it could mean giving up another module you might want more.
After much deliberation and a couple of emails later, my first and second choices were sent in. And I just got the timetable a few days ago.
I got my first choices, which I am happy about!

After deciding that I will do what I want instead of simply taking the 'safer, practical' path, I took the psychoanalysis module instead of the Publishing one. 19th-Century Writing was another module I would have liked to take, but timetable clashes disallowed that.
Apart from that, I'm pretty much contented.
