I have applied to Hallam to do social work in Sept 2012.
My boyfriend goes to Hallam currently and he lives in The Marples. It's a great location (he can see the o2 academy from his kitchen window!) Its not the nicest place i have ever stayed (however this is mostly due to untidiness!) but there are alot of rooms and most people there get along and go on to each others floors. Its close to the Uni library and shops etc. The rooms are quite big and its very cheap!
I wouldn't worry pal, lots of my mates last year were in the same situation, where everyone had offers early and they didnt, but they still got there offers. I guess they do nothing over Christmas aswell so thats 3 weeks..
I have applied for Criminology and Sociology which is taught at the Collegiate campus and accepted it as my firm I have applied for the Forge as my first choice of accomodation and the Anvil as my 2nd xx
