    friends and I applied castle, sadly they aren't going because they got other unis ie cambridge :3
    ooh nice! I was wondering if I needed to form it now so I get allocated a college now. still deciding where to go omg because each uni has its pros and cons and this is really hard. durham has been my top choice for a while but my family is in the south and would rather i go to a uni closer to them. I guess I'll wait til feb

    Aww, don't worry I'm sure you'll make loads of new friends if you go to Durham and Durham is still an amazing university! I know, deciding were to go is really difficult! Where else have you applied to?

    I have Edinburgh and Bristol too although the Durham course does look better, waiting for Exeter although I probably won't go. I also do love Durham although I've only been once 4/5 years ago. Biggest issue now is I'm having second thoughts about my subject!! Hahaha..................

    Oh hey Sapphire, I remember you from last application cycle. ������ If you don't mind me asking, what are you up to this year?

    I'll be at Chad's for chemistry this October - hopefully see some of you there!
    Oh hi again knope, what have you been up to recently? I've still not been that well so that's why I decided to apply again for 2015 entry. I'm better than I was now though so hopefully I can actually go this time! I think Durham will probably be my firm (I finally decided between Durham and St Andrews haha). Are you going to the post application open day this year?

    I've seen cook books for uni students so I think I may need to investigate! They really do, everything gets put on hold for six months-a year. Durham's a good place for drama and singing

    Haha me too! Yeah it sounds like it should be really good from what I heard at the open day. The colleges all seem to have choirs and put on plays/musicals every year. Do you think Durham will be your firm?

    So sorry to hear that, hope you make a speedy recovery! I work in a primary school full time - endless chaos, basically.

    I'm not going to the post-app open day, though I did enjoy it last year. I'm happy letting this whole uni business be in the semi-distant future right now; the whole point, for me, of sorting it out last year was forgetting about it this year. Are you planning on going?

    In any case, all the best & hopefully see you in October, yeah? (:

    I think I have finally decided that it will be, for me my choice was between Exeter and Durham but I think Exeter will be my insurance (although I'm not sure I'm comfortable with such high insurance grades) you?

    Applied for Engineering at Mary's no offer yet, but the more I've been waiting the more I've begun to think to myself my college doesn't matter nearly as much as it did when I first applied, a place at any college would make me happy :P Mary's is lovely though

    Don't be! All the Durham colleges are nice and they have more similarities than differences. I'm sure you'll be happy in whichever college you get allocated to!

    Thank you, hopefully! Oh right, good luck then! I'm sure it'll be useful work experience haha. Fair enough, yeah it must be good to have it all sorted out. Yes, I'll be going - it was so fun last year that I definitely wanted to go again! Yes, hopefully!
