    Hey I'm applying to Clare to read Classics. I chose it because it seemed like an unpretentious place and had lots going on in the social scene!
    Only a poor person would say something like that.

    I posted my SAQ last week- got my interview dates sent to me on Friday. That's medicine though and it might not even take place if I score lower than a certain mark in the BMAT So I could get a phone call cancelling it !! NOOOoooooo. I am dreading the date when the results come.

    You have to get a certain score? ouch! Makes economics look like a walk in the park, I exaggerate obviously. Thats so jokes tho- they ring and cancel it.

    I was thinking maybe just unplug my phone for a while until the interview day, then turn up for the interview anyway (lol MAKE them interview me) and pretend I never knew :p:

    Yep, i got one yesterday inviting me for two interviews on the 5th. I'll hopefully be staying over on the 4th. Just a quick question to the Clare students already there, the letter mentioned current students being there for the interviews for coffee/reassuring talks etc but don't you all leave at the end of November?

    Not really, some of us (i.e. me...) now live here due to work over the holidays etc etc. Other people are invited to stay by the UCS, the college student union. Hence there are people around!

    Ah ok, i'd like to apologise in advance then for the quantity of pointless and irritating questions that i am likely to ask about History at Clare while padding the time out before my interview.

    Yay, someone else with an interview on the 4th!! Do you know if she's staying over on the sunday night, the 3rd?? That also seems rather nervewracking!!

    Nope, not at all. They gather them up in the Tutorial Office all in one go, anyway, so it doesn't matter. I know for a fact that my SAQ arrived on the day of the deadline or late the previous day, I'd had to Special Deliver it.

    In other news, I was in the applications office the otehr day sorting out some stuff and they had big piles of CAFs and were inputting them into the computers... it was rather tempting to take a look. I didn't, though.

    I've got my interviews on the 5th! Does anyone else have the same for English? It'd be nice to meet up.

    It's the day after I come back from holiday in Rome... I'm going to be so tired! I might end up speaking to the tutor in Italian or something!
