    Heh, don't worry - he just said 'around two weeks' to me, so it kind of fits! And I haven't got anything either, I wish they'd just hurry up and tell me (along with Kings) so that I can get this out of the way <_<

    Lol, I did email them yesterday telling them about further work experience I'd gained. Could have delayed the selection process :cool: but I doubt it.

    Also got an offer - I'm Labour, looks like I'm outnumbered on this course! (I'm alright really!) Anyone else Labour/left wing?

    Also, Harrison, I'm sure you've got one. Can't wait to meet all you guys - we'll be spending the next 3-4 years together D:

    I'm politically neutral (although slightly more liberal than conservative)

    I doubted it for a little while due to other unis I have offers from being better than Leeds but I think I'd be stupid to turn it down. The contacts we'll make!

    Whos thinking of doing what for 3rd year?
    I want to do half and half US and London

    Half and half US and London will be overwhelmingly the most popular one :P only 5 places to do that, and it's based on grades - so we're all competing against each other :cool:

    Anybody want to swap facebooks considering we'll all be meeting in a few months anyway (and hopefully get to know each other before then!)

    Also, yes - people without this work experience will really struggle.

    Thing is, Tim said that people do the work experience, tend to be excellent students (which is why they got onto the course), so make a lot of contacts in Parliament and end up getting an awesome job from one of those contacts straight out of uni.

    What with the years work being right before the final, vital, year, students build up a great work ethic, mixed with an enthusiasm for politics and good natural intelligence that got them onto the course, and a huge amount get first class degrees.

    In fact, he told me that more people get 1sts on from the 15 doing PPS than the other 100 doing politics alone.

    A first class degree from a Russell group university (which most other candidates for jobs won't have), and two sets of work experience (more than almost any other candidates would have, and of better standard too) - people end up with an assured job right out of Uni, and nearly all go on to do really interesting things.

    Definitely firming!
