Ah yes, very manly. I have a friend who applied for it and went to an interview. There was one woman there and one woman only.
Oh right, i didn't get an interview :dontknow: but i've checked online and it's 82% Male, it's only 3yrs, my 2nd degree should have a lot more girls (assuming it matters) :laugh:

Only some unis interview, usually the very competitive ones. Leeds must be one of the ones that don't. My ratio is about 48% Male I think.

I applied through extra as well so maybe that's why they didn't bother
Which course are you doing? leeds uni has about 40:60 male female in general so no complaints

I'm going for Politics. I had an interview for a little extra bit on the side which allows me to do an internship in Parliament, the Canadian Parliament or the American Congress and the people I saw on the interview were nearly all male too.

Does anyone know if we can find out whether it's mixed or single sex flat? I really don't want to be in a single sex so I hope mine's mixed!! Is there a way of telling or do we just have to wait till move in day?
Yes, you can ask but we can't always guarantee it'll be like that - there are a lot more girls than guys at Leeds and some halls attract more girls. So it can happen (although rarely) that even though we've made a mixed sex flat, if we need more spaces of one gender, we may have to move people around because we try never to do a flat which has only one person of a particular gender in. Typically, a five person flat will have 2 guys, 3 girls and 6 person flats are either 3/3 or 2/4. But most poeple don't find single sex flats a problem even if that wasn't what they asked for - there's always flats of the other gender around and, as Gemini said, a lot of people you end up friends with will be on your course or from societies.

Yu can but you'll have to either ring up (0113 343 7777 - and if you can leave it until Tuesday, we'd be grateful) or PM me your real name and your flat number.

No, most Tannery flats are 5 - there is one or two sixes and one or two threes but the rest are 5.

I still don't know where I will be staying
I got the summary on email and all that, so shouldn't be anything wrong
A lot of other people know now, and I want to know toooo :mad:
I am unconditional (undergrad biology), and applied before the deadline.
Anyone else still waiting for answers? :confused:
Oh and btw I hope to get Charles Morris, Storm Jameson Court, even though it was oversubscribed....

On a completely different subject, as we don't have a car, I was thinking of going up to Leeds by train with my dad and buying everything I need up there a few days early (then going back home and bringing my clothes up when everyone else is moving in!) so we can then get the train home the same day.. the thing I was wondering about was whether ikea'd be able to deliver pots and pans etc to halls? Obviously if they parked outside I would take all my cooking bits in, I was just wondering if that's allowed or not? Thanks

It shouldn't be a problem getting things delivered to halls. I know quite a few people who get things delivered, be it the weekly shopping from Tesco or books from Amazon.
