    Ok, so am I right in thinking your rating on pizza is:

    Papa John's > Domino > Pizza Hut/pizza express??

    Thats quite different from mine, that is;

    Pizza Express >>>> Pizza Hut > Domino / Papa John

    Nah, it's not unusual for the other place to struggle to string enough words together to sustain a decent TSR thread.

    We even get them joining Cambridge threads because they are more interesting (cf. BioOx in the 2017 Applicants Thread)

    Yes, you're right: the allusion to crop rotation would be applicable to a more agricultural institution...

    The dearth of posts on t'other freshers' thread is annoying. I was hoping to have some guidance as to how parents of freshers should behave. For example, should one be aiming to make some impact when dropping one's child off at college for the first time? Would hiring a stretched Hummer be deemed appropriate?

    Very sensible suggestion; some of those streets look very narrow.

    I hope there's someone who's not afraid of spiders in my corridor. I just saw a huge one in my bathroom and now I refuse to pee
    Give me a call and I'll be right there in 10 mins, a cookie per spider

    Student life is a hell of a transition from school, to but it the easy way. But it is amazing, finally studying only what I love. However, reading in the Cam thread, about you all receiving your results and all, got me a wee bit jealous. You're all going to have so much fun! Had a quick look at the international exchange programs and figured that my uni has one with Cam, so you might just see me creeping in your backyards in a few months :creep:

    Wow, you must be a seriously good rower already then. Been rowing at school then?
    Must tell me your real name if you get in as I want to support you when you're in the boar race.

    Good luck with the trial!






    (But even if you don't get in, I'm 30000000% sure you'll enjoy college rowing and Bumps= best boat race in the world. Period.)
    Haha well I'm alright - I've been rowing for the last two years but my coach got me in contact with them and I am of a good enough standard to contend I think.

    Will do and thanks

    I'm trialling for CUBC and should be with them for the two weeks training before term actually starts. (Also got pooled to Christ's so no FaT )
    Amazing! GOOD LUCK for the CUBC trial.

    And I think Christ's could do with some good rowers too
