    LEAVE LADY MOUNTFORD ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    lol, I applied really late for accomodation and didnt get into the halls I wanted (R&G, Dale) I ended up in lady mountford and I am so glad I did, the way its organised into blocks, makes it alot more easier to talk to ppl, you end up getting to know evryone in your block which is about 30 ppl, I think that would be almost impossible in any other halls expect morton which have the same layout. Also you get a large middle floor kitchen which ,is a nice communal space to share, as it has table and chairs. After the summer there will be three showers on every floor. Plus i had a massive room.

    Anyway think i have babbled enough, CARNATIC all the way, better bar! better events.

    lol...I live in Greenbank and I'm not stuck up! My family come from a poor background and I know a few working class people at Greenbank. But I'd agree that MOST of the people at R n G (not D n R) are stuck up.
    Rubbish. Did you live in D&R? Living at R&G I have met a few 'stuck up' people. The vast majority however are not. Honestly, it's a very unfair attack, and I bet D&R has a few characters as well, partially given that the costs of living there are the same.

    I'm glad you're happy benieam, I've never actually been there, but I'm just going on what other people have told me about Lady Mountford. There are nice people in any halls you go to . No, KPeh, I did not live at D & R, I lived at R & G, so I think that I'd know what people are like there and I don't think that was unfair. I agree that you could get stuck up people in any halls, but IMO this academic year there was a concentration of stuck up people in R & G. I'm not saying everyone is, but that's the general feeling I got from living there myself.

    Heh, it was at the back of my mind that you were from R&G, but the reality to me has been very different! I guess it just depends who you socialised with. Certainly none of the groups I bounded about were at all stuck up. Then again, there are, what, 300 people at R&G?

    mixer type showers? In Dale you share a shower with one other person. The other Carnatic halls is like one shower to 4 people
