    Nope.
    Isn't looking good for me.
    But I don't really mind. If it isn't here by next wednesday I'm going to withdraw my application from there, firm Anglia and backup Orthoptics.

    Aww.
    I'm also applying for accomm. at Liverpool, they let you apply even if you haven't firmed. Can't do it until I get a letter from them, though. :/

    Good luck to you too!

    The person from the accommodation office said that the form would be out at the end of April, exciting

    Oh you stay not that far from me then, probs 25 mins in the car. I think an 8 bed is probably better x
    Do you know anyone who has applied to optom or Cali ? I don't know anybody who has applied to either, makes it seem quite scary

    I know !, I suppose at least we know each other x
    If I meet my conditions we should try and meet up before the start date so that we know somebody at the start of freshers, that would make it just a teeny bit less scary

    Has anyone heard any stories through the grapevine of people missing their offers and still being let onto City's Optometry course? And if so how low do you think they'd be willing to go? I ask this because I know some schools that give their applicants a bit of leeway. People have gotten into Bradford with grades like BBC and some have gotten into Aston with BBB after being given the standard conditional offer. How strict do you think City are?

    I applied, in this order;
    Anastasia
    Peter Taylor
    Swinhoe
    CB1 en-suite
    Collier Road medium
    Collier Road large
    Sedley court/something else I can't quite remember for 7 and 8.

    I got an accommodation offer for SEDLEY EFFING COURT.
    I mean, it's not bad in and of itself, but seriously? Eighth choice? Like, why do they even try and sort it out now? Everything on the list was showing as full and it wasn't exactly my fault I couldn't apply- since they warn you on the website you need to wait until you've accepted- I was waiting until Glasgow gave me an offer before accepting anything. So of course everything was full.

    Argh, never mind. Sedley court'll have to do.
