    I can only hope he'll forgive me. :puppyeyes:

    Has he decided on his Firm yet? If all goes well I should hopefully be at Imperial in his fourth year. :awesome:

    I can't deciiiide :sad:.

    I think its probably going to be Imperial though.

    ...but it could still change :bawling:.

    Completely understand your choice though, its Oxford after all :p:. Do you not do your clinical years in Oxford though?

    My decision was bloody hard, but at the end of the day I decided that it was really a personal thing to be at Oxford (what with only 5 other freshers for Medicine at my college), whereas it's easy in a bigger group to get lost, if that makes sense. :s: What college do you have an offer from for Durham?

    And I only have a ticket for my pre-clinical years at Oxford. After that I have to re-apply (Yay!) via the commons system for a clinical place at either Oxford, Cambridge or London. Everyone gets a place somewhere though, and right now I'm thinking either UCL, Barts or Imperial for me. It will probably change numerous times over the next few years though. :p:

    Hild Bede at Durham. I get what you mean about the more personal thing, its one of the major reasons I'm considering Durham :yep:.

    Never knew that about med school applications, so you get all the fun of applications all over again? (Although at least with no chance of overall rejection this time though :p:)

    *Scurries off to google college*

    :coma: Me like. Although does it have it's own section of the river and is the science area just a walk through the park away? :teeth: (I have no idea how I got an offer from this college, I wasn't even interviewed there :s:)

    You only have get to apply again if you're at Oxford or Cambridge. Everyone else is boring and just stays at one (Oxbridge is only really where it's feasible though, due to their rather unique course structure. Actually, St. Andrews do the same, but then you just get moved down to Manchester rather than re-applying). One of the best things in my eyes, in that I get to combine amazingly in-depth pre-clinical stuff from world leaders in Oxford, and then move down to busy old London to get into the heart of Clinicals - really sounds the best of both worlds. Plus I'd get to have two degree from two different places (potentially even the kudos of having a degree from both Oxford and Cambridge :teeth:).
