What are you going to do on the first day? Hopefully meet some cool people and head for the bar!
Why did you choose Loughborough as your firm? For starters it was the only place that does the course I wanted, and was therefore the only place I applied! But I originally had Lufbra as my insurance choice first time round, so I knew I loved the place anyway.
Is anyone you know also going to Loughborough or are you all on your lonesome? Lonesome Though I know my mum's god-daughter who's been at Lufbra for the past 3 years is staying on to do a PGCE so I kinda will know someone.
