    fresh repping? I'm guessing you're talking about being a rep during Freshers Week?

    Yeah, wandering around getting the freshers' socialising in a bright pink t-shirt, it's a sweet deal. Get to go on the Monday halls bar crawl too.

    don't you have to work as a promoter for Rockstar to do that? and sell tickets and crap? because I would do that but I don't want to do any of that past Freshers Week

    Don't think so, can't imagine Rockstar need anywhere near the number of promoters as there are fresh reps. Normally one of the sabbs sets up an fb group and you email them asking for the app. Last year's was this: http://www.facebook.com/ULSUfreshrep

    You can't drink til certain points in the evening, but after that you can get as smashed as you like.

    Hi guys!!

    been a while since I was on here, update: I applied for accommodation with no problems I have a conditional offer though so it may be a while before I hear anything back! my choices were all self catered with a mixer of premium/premium plus en-suite rooms. In GMS,John Fosters and The grange. I too am overly stressing about my grades, I need 30 credits at distinction to accept my offer fully and I only have 6 so far....so as you can Imagen my Easter break is ALL about work work work lol. Everything has gone so smoothly and in my favour that it would totally suck bum cheeks to fail at the last hurdle. I have until June to pull it out the bag so fingers crossed, because honestly as many of you I totally fell in love with Leicester and as a result kind of put all my eggs in one basket!! and my alternative (DMU) is really not singing to me the way UoL has from day one (although this could in part be due to the fact I haven't yet seen it)

    Hope everyone's enjoying their time off, recharge your batteries and lets hope we all see each other in October!!! best of luck!
