    Lol, Yale has an acceptance rate of 6%. You'd have to apply to at least 8-15 US unis to spread out the risk.

    I mostly wanted to apply just to see if I would get in, but considering the application fee for each university and the fact that I wanted to go to the UK anyway, I decided it would be pointless to apply.

    Ah I see thats pretty amazing!! What degree did you do?

    I am going to study English hope to anyway aha and Im looking forward to being independent, night life, meeting new people... long list haha x
    I have 15 days left on my Chemistry degree :yep:

    Independence is one of the greatest things about University, for definite! :awesome: . I look back on my first burnt pizza, my first load of shrunken clothes from washing/drying, forgetting to buy basic amenities like deodorant and shower gel... . Nothing quite like going home and having a stocked up fridge and SO MANY THINGS TO STEAL TO TAKE BACK! :woo:

    :lol: . I never got into the nightlife side of things, but society meets until 3am were certainly an experience I didn't have before Uni :lol:

    I do wish you the best of luck :yep:

    Do all molecules have an instantaneous diapole induced dipole bonds? My teacher said so but some of the OCR mark schemes are confusing me xx
