Ok, so i got a question or two.

Who here's applied/applying? hows it going? got your offers etc?

And also, anyone know anything about the Goldsmith's rules on halls of residence? Because i live in London, they don't guarantee me a place, and there is NO WAY im paying the fortune to commute there every day, besides i don't rekon i'll get there on time anyway. If i say that my residence is my house in Norfolk...say, my parents are relocating there now im at uni -Would they accept that even though my application has my London address?

Bleh!

Me, I got all my 6 offers and I've accepted my firm and insurance choice.

I applied back in October, and you?

Hmm, about your situation, do what everyone else does and live on campus.

Where'd you apply? and to do what?

edit: yes, thats the problem, i want to live there in halls on campus, but i dont get guaranteed a place, i have to wait til after the start of term in case a place frees up

I think if you talk to the student support/housing people at the uni and explain they should be cool with it- if they are anything like any other uni.
I didn't get a chance to find out since I declined their offer when I got my results a couple of years back

What? The campus accomodation's already taken? That's not right!
And there's always clearance for acommodation, you can try and get the last places.

well not taken per se, but they offer the places first to students outside London, cause they figure London residents could commute...

My brother started there this year, he got a place in halls a couple of weeks ago and he was a late applicant. I doubt you'll have much trouble getting into halls. Even if you don't get in it won't be long before you get a place.

And I don't have to apply until later this year. Seems a hell of a lot closer this side of January 1st. . .

Yeah there are flats, and i guess the chances of getting housed arent too slim, but i REALLY want to live in Halls, to meet all the people, live close, etc etc. Hell, i got a flat if i want it (I THINK), but i dont want to be a recluse.

you're teachers will push you to do it from like September, but they'll give you deadlines that aren't real- the actual deadline I THINK just went, but up till then they kept saying half term", end of Term....by christmas etc etc.

It's best to get it outta the way quick though. the hardest part is the personal ****ing statement -.-

Apply in the first few weeks in October, plan everything before.
That way you're guaranteed to get a place in a course, providing you're good enough for it.

My personal statement went through like 10 drafts, the teacher kept changing it and writing unreadable notes on it.

Hah I couldn't even be bothered to show it to my teacher. I got a C in english gcse (to prove my below average writing skills) and I sent my personal statement straight through and have got into 5/5 universities. I think I sent it through in november. The earlier the better.

My teacher said everything was fine, then when i corrected the fews things he said and showed it to him, there was another teacher there who said it was shit. basically my form tutor is a lying ****.

So then i was panicking, with courseworks etc, wrote my current personal statement in 45 minutes and sent it off the next day.

I've got the same kinda problem..

I got offers from Kings College, Southampton, Reading, Exeter and Royal Holloway, still haven't heard from LSE

Kings is my first choice, but seeing as I live in London, I don't get guaranteed accommodation. Having to live at home for the first year of uni would really suck So do I go to a place like Southampton where I get guaranteed accommodation, but has an ok course, or just go for Kings anyway because of the great course, even if that means I have to live at home?

Any help is appreciated
#23
Nottingham, Manchester, Southampton (are all the ones I am considering)
and Bristol, Bath (just random ones I chose) and finally my backup, Salford. That's sucha crap university I now decided I wouldn't go there even if I got rejected everywhere else.

First I wanted to do acoustical engineering but not many univerisites do that. Only Southampton and Salford, and as we know, Salford sucks.

I went to an interview at southampton and wasn't especially interested in the course.

Everywhere else I've applied to do aeronautical engineering so now my first choice is to do that at nottingham.

I'd say go for the place that you prefer the course at. Accommodation will get sorted eventually i guess, but no point going to study somewhere purely because you can live there.

And yes, it seems Londoners are the ones going to uni this year

Linguistics with English. Scary shit! What did you apply for in the end? This is my 2nd attempt after dropping out this time around... if you change your mind like in august you can go through clearing until the 2nd week of teaching and still get a place, halls and everything. Worth keeping in mind.

yeah i know, and i guess thats the back up plan. I'm applying for Creative writing at Winchester/Essex, (Got Winchester already, but don't want to go), English with Creative Writing at Goldsmiths, Plymouth, and UEA, and Creative Writing with Philosophy at Hertfordshire, which i applied for a laugh really, just to see if they'd accept me although i wrote nothing about philosophy in my statement

So far need to hear from Essex, UEA rejected me but offered me American Literature with Creative, which im not too keen about, but i've sent off a story anyway. Goldsmiths asked for some work, so i sent them my two favourite pieces and Winchester/Plymouth/Herts all accepted conditionally.

I've applied to 5 Unis and got accepted to do English (conditionally of course) by: Cardiff, Exeter, Sussex and Portsmouth. Am waiting on a response from Southampton.

I'll be glad when all of this is over. Writing the personal statement is one of the most embarrassing processes that you'll ever have to go through. "Pick me, pick me; I'm great. None of my personality can come through on one side of A4, but I did play football for my college team. I really like English, just like the thousands of other disposable applicants that will apply to your University. The End. P.S - PICK ME!"

Well Im in my first year at Sheffield Hallam doing Software Development. I applied in late October of 2005, but I was one of the first from my school to get the form in. Deadline is end of Dec/beginning of January. I sent off my accomodation form in January and didnt get my first choice for accomodation (although in hindsight I am far happier here than I could ever be anywhere else) but thats because it was the most popular.

I was accepted on all my courses but there is no need to wait till you get all responses to send off the accomodation stuff.

Just relax, there is no need to panic
