    Oh curses - really?!

    I must have missed that memo!
    It's ok, just mind yourself in future. We can't have people going around suggesting there might be more to university than rankings.

    I rang them today and the woman over the phone was really nice, she explained that everyone should expect confirmation emails over the next couple of days. I was a little surprised to hear about the payment needed before we get our loans, but that was probably due to my poor research! Are yours in Fallowfield? (Well done!!) x
    Ah cool cool I just got my first official direct-from-UoM email about getting accepted earlier so I'm hoping everything else will follow pretty soon! Payment needed before loans? Enlighten me? :P I did barely any research and just went along with whatever :L My top two are City but the map looks like it's more in Victoria. My third option is in Fallowfield just I doubt I'll get that. My sister was in Fallowfield for her last year and even though I liked it, I feel like I'd prefer Vic/City for my first year at least wbu? (Also gratz! ) x

    I've been worrying about it so much actually! I don't know what halls i'm in yet, but I applied for Canterbury court first so I think I'll be in Victoria Park. I'm doing History

    I'm a bit confused about the wristbands actually- do you think if you don't buy one you'll just be left alone in your flat on a night while everyone else goes out? Some of it sounds okay but the huge clubs are just not my thing at all
    It's a possibility. There have to be other people who don't like clubs too, according to my friends who have been in a similar situation once one person lets the others know they're not going out just doing pre-drinks or whatever more often than not someone else will say they don't really want to go either. It just depends on the group I guess.

    The other thing is though there are so many different wristbands going round (I've seen at least three) that even if you buy now you might not be going to the same place as your flatmates anyway. I think some things you can buy on the door too if it's not full.

    I've looked on the official website thingy and it says there's two wristbands- black or red. You buy them according to which halls you're in and go to the different things on different days. I don't know- might just buy just in case & see when I get there!

    What course/halls are you studying & in? Soooo glad not everyone is up for all these DJ sets and clubs- pub nights are always so much better
    I have never had a pub night or a real club night but I'm rather chilled. Wack in some karaoke and I'm ready to go! Hehehe :3
    I'm gonna study European Studies and German and I will be staying at home... I hope I meet people worth meeting despite me not living in halls...what about you??
