    Hi guys.

    I've finally worked out why I never get any e-mails from Sheffield (or UCAS for that matter)...

    BECAUSE UCAS PUT MY E-MAIL DOWN WRONG!!!

    I went on Sheffield's accommodation contract site thingy and it showed me a wrong e-mail lol. Anyway, at least I know I now have accommodation... I just have to wait for the letter to tell me where!

    EDIT: Just been on the contracts site, put my details in... I got my first choice accommodation (Ranmoor)... WOOHOO!!!

    I'm in ranmoor... decided to check the contracts site anyway and it says i'm in ranmoor, but i'll still need to ring up to find out whether i'll be getting a letter or another e-mail...

    EDIT: Tried both accommodation helplines and nobody's answering... argh...

    Seems like a strange coincidence that the three people I know going to Sheffield this year are all in Earnshaw!!! Doesn't bother me though (got my 1st choice - Ranmoor - WOOHOO!) it's only down the road and it's not hard to make friends in a hall of 800 people!!!
