Your blog/wordpress/whatever is absolutely amazing, so funny
And what sort of job are you in now? Allow for much outdoors work? I'm applying for geology/earth science foundation years, but that course actually looks pretty sick too.
Would you recommend that course?
Was there much mathematics in the course or a possibility to take maths based modules?
Saw your post in the graduate thread talking about jobs. What was your degree out of curiosity?
I'm gonna take a little break from TSR until exams are over, I hope everything goes well work wise and in terms of planning for uni! If you need to contact me, you can tweet me! x
Hey! So sorry I had to walk off mid-conversation yesterday - I didn't realise you were all going on a tour and I thought I'd have the opportunity to carry on. I hope you got lots out of the open day. It was really handy to me in terms of making my decision. I am quite jealous of the Gordon Museum (I think that's what it's called) with all the awesome pathological specimens, but I think I'm just not a London person, and coupled with the cost, and the idea of being in with 450 other med students per year (I'd rather be in a GEP-only group for Y1), it's going to be Newcastle. (Also jealous of KCL's apparent gender balance...)
Yeah, it's all a bit weird. As a dependent student, I wouldn't be eligible due to my dad's income. Their pre-2012 policy was in line with Student Finance England's in that if you were 25+ you were automatically independent (I'll be 25 in Feb 2014), but reading their post-2012 policy, this clause has disappeared.... SFE's advice was to 'wait and see'!
Hope the Megabus isn't too awful tomorrow. I'm getting the train, which will almost certainly be just as bad!
Yeah, doesn't look like I'll be eligible for the NHS bursary in years 2-4, even. :s
I have got a bit hooked on Girls (although had to power through the first about five episodes because I hated all of the characters at first!), also onto series 3 of Mad Men. I've got series 1 of Grey's Anatomy lined up on the recommendation of a friend. Oh, and 1&2 of How I Met Your Mother. I have a tendency to buy box sets and then never get round to watching them, can you tell?! Although evidently I have pretty awful taste...
I'm pretty settled on Newcastle - I've always been a bit intimidated by London and cost-wise it's going to make a huge difference since I'm not eligible for bursaries. I really loved the city when I went for interview, too, which I suppose is an especially good sign since it was snowing really heavily and freezing cold! Trying to hang fire on making a decision until I've visited once more, but I'm now prob. 90% decided. I'm really keen for it to be as little like Oxford as possible (I'd rather they were two distinct, but equally fun, experiences) and Newcastle should offer me that!
I've been back a week - largely watching box sets at the moment and trying to muster up enthusiasm for a wardrobe clear-out. I can't actually fit all the clothes I've brought back in, so that should spur me on... It's all glamour here.
Haha, well, long story short with KCL - I emailed them to check before I booked tickets and they told me it was 12-4. Booked tickets for me and my dad (he's interested to see what he will be paying for...) for £120. Then today got the schedule through and was . Thankfully they've been very nice and are letting me meet the course director for A102 before I have to leave at 3.30, so they've redeemed themselves there. This is not my week with medical schools!
Anyway, yes, I'm afraid I won't be able to grab lunch as it will be v.v. whistle stop, but I'll see you there.
You definitely had the right idea with Warwick! Considering withdrawing on UCAS just so I can accept Newcastle and decline the other two. So fed up of waiting for an offer I'm not really that fussed about...
