    Yeah. I must say, I have less of the jitters and more -- increasing -- impatience. But hey, only 2 days.

    Do you guys have lawyery stuff to read before you go?
    2 days?! It's 5 for us and I'm jittery as hell, along with excited though.

    Yeah, we got some Roman and Constitutional Law related stuff to read, basically just to make sure we aren't thrown into the deep end.

    You?

    Norton Antivirus is 19.99 at Argos, if that is of any help.

    Five? dayum.

    My college wasn't told to read anything, actually, in stark contrast to some others that were actually told to write essays before getting there. I bought consti, civil and tort introduction books to read before I went anyway, though.

    The civil and tort books are pretty much untouched still

    At least you've done some preparatory work though, should stand you in good stead. Good luck anyway, although I'm sure you'll be fine anyway.

    Nice to see you too :p:

    How are things? I'm assuming you've been presented with an equally horrid reading list?
    I've been good. Haven't packed despite the fact that I'm leaving in TWO DAYS, but I'm not panicking...yet!

    Yup, I've got an 8 book reading list that I haven't touched! Yourself?

    Excuse me, but what the hell are you doing here?
    Gracing these poor, uneducated yobbos with my presence. I'm merely letting them see what they should aspire to be like.

    I haven't done anything other than reading, my mum keeps bugging me to get things, but she's well aware that ASDA is open 24hours, and contains everything I'll need.

    Damn! An 8 book reading list?! And I like your style, going in blind, firing wildly in all directions. We were given two books to read, with a third as a suggestion.

    At least these "poor uneducated yobbos" can spell "these"... just sayin'.

    :p:


    EDIT: Also, don't panic! You'll be fine!

    Nobody will bother to check for that, I wouldn't go out of your way to rush if I were you.

    Ooh, so I'd still be able to connect to the network and stuff? I was just worried as 2nd years on the freshers pages said that without antivirus I wouldn't be able to get on to the internet/the university network, and I don't really fancy having to spend time sorting it out in freshers when there are a lot more fun things i'd like to be doing...

    Dewsbury, I had to commute there for a week, so I'm assuming you weren't blown away by the place on your visit :p:
    We don't mention it when we're counting places in Yorkshire.

    Hmm, if they allowed college collectives it could be done, might even forge new alliances, rather than just the rivalries that exist currently.

    I wouldn't be too impressed, I just think it means that lots of people wanted to get onto the team but they didn't, so they made a second team.
    So I assume practically everybody here discussing rugby intends to play for their college Union team at the very least?

    I stopped playing when I started A2 and I'm missing it to the point that I'm having rugby relating dreams.
    I'm clearly very desperate to start playing again...

    Put 'Oxford Lecture Lists' into Google then click on the first link that comes up. Should have the lecture list for your subject on there

    I haven't seen anything about it on the SF website. I'm starting to wonder if it's connected to whether you take out the maintenance loan, since I'm only getting the grant (income has still been assessed though, which I thought was the important thing). But I guess it'll sort itself out eventually.
    I may well be wrong but my sister mentioned something about having to get the loan to be eligible for the OOB, as we were considering saving some debt and not taking the loan maybe next year, but then we'd lose our OOB or something so decided against that route.

    Sorry if that's wrong or confusing!

    Well, I'm unsure, if it came down to it, I'd rather row/ play football I think. It's difficult to commit to anything without knowing our workloads and timetables.

    Dreaming about playing?! Damn, sounds like you have withdrawal symptoms.

    The qualifications don't mention that though, they just say if your household income is under a certain threshold as evidenced by SFE, then you'll get the OOB.

    I suppose I might if there's no league on the go.

    I know what you mean! I keep finding myself trawling youtube for various 'NRL's biggest hits' type videos
