I've just been told my allocated college is Mansfield!

Are there any Mansfield-ers out there, particularly for History?

THEY NEVER TOLD ME THAT
Yay! And you'll obviously be fine! Just from you posts on this forum it's easy to see your infatuation with all aspects of German literature and culture :rofl:

I have been allocated to Christ Church

It looks very old and nice and grassy. Maybe Oxford is nudging St. Andrews out of favourite uni spot...

Have been spending far too long newtabbing threads on Wordreference forums and filling in cover sheets and hunting up three paperclips.

I must confess, I have scarcely heard about it until today

But as soon as I visited the website, I loved it

I never knew that either! At least other essays are fine too though

Oxford say that written work should be no more than 2,000 words, do you think it'll matter if one of mine is 2,171 words?

I've got the TSA in a little over a week but rather than doing any sort of preparation, I carved a cyberpumpkin.
Time well spent.

I didn't know they made every medicine applicant come to Oxford for the interview! And all EU people too! I thought they'd oly make UK people come. Shows how much I know :P

10th of dec seems soon to get all that written work sent off though :-/ I suppose you have to allow for posting time and all that!
