good to kno. can everyone take a side on the somerset vs. dorset feud or is it exclusive?
...and are there any open days for people that have had offers?
im sorry, i hadn't realised the extent of the horror. Is it possible to start your own county feuds?
nah, wish i had, was too busy panicking about my interviews- saw the library quite a bit though...
The libary door is a pain in the arse; I got stuck in there twice last term.
I resent the implication that i would stir up borough related trouble without real foundation (well i don't resent it that much).
I was v.impressed withthe library, did get stuck in the toilet for longer than is probably acceptable (for some reason i cudnt work out that the door was pull instead of push- can they revoke an offer on the basis of such stupidity?)
I dunno, I'll ask Doerrzapf about it! (you had your general interview with the legend that is yeah?) It took me a while to figure out the lighting system in the library toilets, with those little metal switches.
ahh no dont, he might take it away!yep i am familiar with him, that interview went quite well.
those toilets are an intellectual challenge!btw, i am sorry for sullying your thread with the mention of toilets.
Hey- been offered a place at St John's to read History next year, provided I get AAA. Paid off managing not to say **** for half an hour! I suppose. That and my seemingly endless struggle with library door which nearly made me significantly late for Dr Szreter.
Anyway, hurrah for us all. To be honest.
Hey, congrats on the offer! we could both b there next year...weird.i was worried id accidently swear in my interview, i probly wudnt hav realised.
p.s im glad other ppl had some door related trouble
When was your interview?
Indeed, thankfully I refrained from using expletives, particularly in reference to some sort of Russian breeding spree.
The library's pretty fit. I had to go there to write notes on the Adam Smith extract they gave me, so didn't get the chance for much of a browse- as it were- while trying to get my head around the text. Looks, erm, substantial though. And all that. Door was a bit of a bi tch- some sort rotating/swinging system going on there. Perplexing.
russian breeding sprees do have that effect...so i hear. my interview was one the 8th of December urz? door is crazy, i waited until sum1 else went in, is that cheating?
Yes, it is.
I had mine on the 6th. Or the 5th. Can't really remember, was such a non-event. NOT.
Noticed we were falling down a bit
What kind of value is put on the bursaries for books etc, and what type of bursaries and grants are avaliable from the college. The website is a bit vauge about it
There's a booklet you can find "orange booklet something or other" that tells you about grants and just about everything. Although if you can't be bothered looking, it says they pay for half of all the books you buy in the academic year for one of your specific reading lists up to a maximum value of £150. I think that applies to all undergraduates.
