UNIVERSITY 2013


Pretty much what it says up there!

How's everyone doing in their application, and does anyone know where they're going? (Subject to results...)

Was also kinda wondering if I might end up bumping into some mooks when I finally go!!

So I got all my offers and I've replied... Firm choice is UEA and insurance is York St John, to do English Lit. with Creative writing :)

I have all my offers, but am so stuck in deciding where to go. I think my insurance will have to be Nottingham Trent, as it's the only one I've applied to which has a lower offer, but the more I think about it the more I don't want to go there, so I'm not sure what to do for that.

And for my firm I think I'm stuck between Manchester and Newcastle uni, although I have an open day at Liverpool uni in the next few weeks which I haven't properly considered so far, as I've never been to Liverpool, but if I like it enough then that could also become a contender.

Basically all I've decided is that I'm not going to the university of York, despite how nice the ducks were.

EDIT: Oh, and I forget to mention I'll be studying biology.

Come to Liverpool,we have lots of beaches-unlike Manchester! Seriously,anything you want to know about the city before you arrive,give us a shout and I'll try and find out.

I'm looking to do some sort of postgrad course this year. It will most likely be a certificate in foundation level counselling skills, which is a part-time course. That means I can work and study. That course is only around 1,000 euro, and I would like to pay all of it back to my parents because they'll be paying for it initially.

I keep seeing really attractive taught masters courses, but they're either too far away or too expensive. The latest one I got an email about was an M.Sc in regenerative medicine, but it's in NUIG which is across the country from me. Plus it costs almost 7,000 euro. My parents wouldn't be able to afford that (initially- I would pay them back of course), and I really don't know about taking out loans and stuff before I've ever had a job :/ I would also be worried about living away from home- that would be more expenses.

I've been thinking about masters too- in environmental management. The only reason I'd want to do the course though is to get a job, and the percentage of graduates getting related jobs isn't great in the departments I've looked at so far. /;

I'm waiting to hear back from Barts and the London and Southampton for grad entry medicine. It could be any day now. EVERYONE CROSS THEIR FINGERS.

Oooooh well done! That's absolutely brilliant!

Today was meant to be the latest I should have heard back from the med school. Someone called them up and apparently it could be "next week or the week after"- are they purposefully fucking with me?

^^ Apparently a lot of unis are doing that; I have a friend who had her interview a month ago and still hasn't had a response.

As for me, accepted my offer from Roehampton for Literature, and just have to do my student finance and accommodation application next month!

^^^ it's not uncommon at all, it's just that Barts made a very big deal at the interview saying it WILL be by this date and we pride ourselves in prompt responses and we don't want to keep you hanging etc. etc. which is what has annoyed me.

And congrats on your place. I think Vic does that course?

^^^^Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay Roehampton! Have you got an idea of which accommodation to apply for? I would recommend not living in one of the Froebel college residences. Not because they are bad buildings, but because Digby Stuart is the best college and we have won Frigby every year for the last 6 years.

Charlie, it is probably worth phoning or emailing them to find out when to hear back. I have all my appendages crossed for you.

EDIT: Yes, I do Lit at Roey, combined with Language & Linguistics. It's the best.

^^ I'm currently loving Lee House in Digby Stuart. I don't think I could share a toilet; I have issues sharing with my mum and sister at home!

^^^Lee house is the newest residence on campus, a lot of my friends lived their last year and really liked it. Because the living room/kitchen is so big it's great to go/host pre-drinks for nights out because you can fit more people in. If you are looking for en-suite bathrooms, one of the blocks of Shaw house has them too, and that was renovated last year so everything is still pretty nice and new. At all costs, avoid living in Bede house if you can - the rooms are tiny, the bathrooms are communal and it's the loudest house on campus.

Well, it's official, I've been rejected from all of my choices for grad med. I thought I'd be a bit more upset, but it's not my fault- I got an email from Barts saying my application was excellent and they'd love to give me a place but there isn't one, and so if anyone rejects a place it will go to me. Most people don't get into grad med first time, I was just really hoping I was an exception.

^^^ It's not really a case of there being something else I'd like to do. I already have a degree. It's just keeping positive and trying again next year. :)

^ I'm sorry to hear that, Charlie. My grad entry medicine dance obviously didn't work as well as it ought to but at least they told you that you're fucking brilliant. Plenty of people people have absolutely no chance of getting a place - you got really fucking close and it was only the first try. I think it's not exactly a question of whether you'll get in, it's just a question of when. I'm glad you're not too upset, like you said, it's not your fault! Besides, someone might reject their place, you never know. :) xxx
