    I heard Dawson is far from lectures at the open day, about a 40 min walk. What time does lectures start for first years?
    He told me that Pooley house is the best albeit expensive, but I'm wondering if there are any medics at Pooley house or is it mainly QM students, don't want to miss out on the whole Barts student experience.
    My advice does not change, take Dawson.

    Dawson is a 35 minute walk, lectures start at 9am on monday, 11am on tuesday, wednesday and friday, thursday varies depending if you have MedSoc or not. Also half the year has PBL at 9am on tuesday and friday, whilst the others have it at 3pm.

    Mile End is rubbish, full of quimmers. Have a mate at Mile End and he's constantly hanging out here at Dawson for the banter etc.

    Dawson's the best, and 35mins is not far to get to lectures

    I called barts up to find out whether I would be able to get accommodation as I live within the M25, but they said it would be highly unlikely.
    I was wondering if any current students who are in student accommodation live within the M25?

    Yeah, one of my neighbours lives within the M25.

    Just don't count on getting accommodation :erm:

    Is it worth applying for the intercollegiate halls just in case I don't get accommodation at barts? Although I live within the M25, it takes around 1.5 hours to reach whitechapel, so I would prefer to live in London.

    Thanks

    Thanks and PRSOM, I don't really mind the 35min walk/tube as long as there are people to do it with and I'm not alone.

    Have you found that social life varies from Floyer house to Dawson? I am probably going to apply for one of these and just wanted to know if there are many major differences of student life/type of people at one hall compared to the other in your opinion apart from the quality of the building itself?

    How would I know?

    Noone lives at both so can't compare (well no freshers live at both)
    Dawson social life is great, can't complain. Love my flatmates and people on other floors too.

    Don't really know what goes on at Floyer.. so it can't be as good since there are no epic stories about it

    Dawson and Floyer both have clinical students and a few postgrads as well. Difference is that in Dawson, the clinical students (finalists) are in a separate wing.

    Still doesn't stop a few knobs having a freakin' house party at 5AM the week before finals

    In terms of freshers, Floyer seems to be incredibly close knit. They all go out things together as an entire group of freshers, rather than many groups ala Dawson. Which is nice I suppose.

    On the other hand, I would always pick Dawson. Amazing group of people and by far the best area of any medical school halls that I've heard of.

    The green outside is amazing to have in central London! I have never regretted picking Dawson. When I was a pre-fresher I was really confused, as they don't show you Dawson at the open days and I was very close to picking Mile End, but as PSQ says, so many people regret not picking Dawson.

    Have fun!

    That is one of the very important factors! Shopping bag hands and aching shoulders is not fun. But in london there should always be one fairly near?? (i hope...)
