    Blackberry's great if you write a lot on your phone.... so if you write a ton of emails, or like to send lengthy messages, get a blackberry.

    Iphone's more user-friendly though... and apps are more readily available.

    I used to use a blackberry because I would write short essays and things like that the minute before they were due. Then I could simply email myself a version, correct the spellings, then submit them through a computer.

    If you don't plan on doing that, however, I would suggest an iPhone.

    So you seriously started packing? WOAH!
    Yeah, I guess maybe I don't see the negative side of going so late, but I'll probably have to go earlier, it makes more sense.

    I'll probably do just that. I'm hoping that all the places I need to access frequently are within walking distance. I think that's really my greatest wish (:

    When do most people go to universities? As in, a few days before it starts? A week in advance? A month in advance?

    I honestly don't know when I should fly there!

    I think being in london accessibility should be generally fine. Things like atm, newstand, cooked food, bakery are available in my uni, which most probably would be available in yours too.

    My accomodation contract will start on 1st sept, school in the week of 10-14 sept. most probably i will leave sg on 31st august. If i am not wrong the flight should be 17hours. U would need to calculate your time well as u might need a train or bus to campus. My friend got the time wrong and arrived at 4am.

    If your uni provides shuttle service, then u would have to see what time will your shuttle bus arrive. Some of my friends' uni have it 1 week before sch, some just the weekend before.
