    Thanks for the info on what people were wearing,

    Out of interest has anyone received like a confirmation letter with further details?
    I sent back my slip for the 7th March selection day a while ago now, and haven't heard anything since, do they send anything else or do you just turn up?

    Thanks
    When I sent my slip back I didn't hear anything else back from them, I just turned up and my name was on their list. And there was a massive mix in what people were wearing, everything from jeans and a T shirt to full on suits, best to go somewhere in the middle I guess, although people in suits didn't look out of place, but I don't think it was necessary.

    Hi, I'm new on TSR and am applying for Economics and Geography at UCL.

    Is anybody here attending the session on the 22nd of February? Also, I haven't heard back from them (either) since I sent back my confirmation via email. Is this normal?

    Finally, to everyone who has already attended a session - what did the 'group discussion' involve? Was it more of an interview or simply a discussion regarding a given resource? Was there any time for one-on-one questioning?

    Thank you.
    Group discussion for me was being asked a couple of questions about why I wanted to study geography/at UCL, and then was shown mapping software on a computer and asked questions on it which led to a sort of discussion, mostly it was speaking in turn though. But this was for straight geography not economics with geography, and it was called a mock tutorial rather than a group discussion.

    Off to UCL Geog Open Day tomorrow. Bit worried. :/ As I understand it, this is the last one they are running.... this can only be a bad thing as they've probably filled most of the places and the standard has been set - it will predictably be high. :/

    If anyone can give me any pointers as to what generally goes on/any helpful things, I'd be much apprieciative.

    It was almost exactly a month from my selection day to a decision i'm afraid, seems like a long wait but it goes pretty quickly. I got an offer but I don't know about other people who were on the day, if it was a selection day I think a fairly high percentage of people do get an offer, but if it was a formal interview I don't know.

    well i went to the selection day yesterday and they said to us they would reply within two weeks. So you should hear from them pretty soon if you went to the Selection day last week.

    Thanks guys!

    On a side note, i got an offer from LSE for Geography with Economics and now i'm really unsure of which uni to firm. I think UCL has a more all-rounded course both in terms of Geography and Economics (LSE is major-minor) but I'm really interested in Human Geography esp Development or Geopolitics. Help? I desperately need some second opinions >< Anyone in the same situation? I know there was this undergrad at UCL for Econ n Geo n he rejected LSE
