    I have an open offer for psychology, it feels really strange doesn't it! Where did you interview? I was at Brasenose, I feel kind of sad that I probably won't go there as I've now lost all sense of familiarity, but also excited as it's like waiting for a big surprise!

    Yes! I have an open offer for Medicine. I applied to Brasenose which I just love, and also got interviewed at Exeter, but my open offer is from Queens! Weird right?!
    Congrats though!! I'm still in shock a month later

    Hahahaha I got interviewed at Queens, obviously getting another college now. :P
    How did you find out your open offer was from Queens? I was told I'd find out near August.

    What dates were you at Brasenose? I was there 14th - 16th and I think there may have been medics there, although I spent most of my time in my room so I probably didn't speak to you even if you were there :') still nice to hear from another Brasenose applicant though, there aren't many on here!

    Are you disappointed at all that your offer isn't from Queen's or were you not too fussy in the first place?

    Wasn't too fussed, had applied to Queen's because I had a friend in the year above, heard the food was good, and its centrally located.

    Ahh, so was it nice there? When I went for the open day the atmosphere at Queen's seemed really cold to me, I didn't like it at all :/ although the lawns were impeccably mown.

    It was really great there, can't speak for the open day but I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
    The seniors helping out were super nice and so were the other applicants, thought it was a really fun atmosphere. Maybe that is just interview time though.

    Aww I'm glad you had such a good time! It was probably just a one off at the open day, I think it was later on so people were tired and most visitors had left, plus the tutor I spoke to was a bit intimidating, which probably made it seem worse on reflection. There did seem to be a recurring theme of everyone thinking their college is the best, which is good

    Regent's Park - it gets quite a few reallocated students, so I think they're doing the open day as quite a few might not have seen the college or been there for interview

    Yeah I was there from the 13th to the 15th! I may have seen you around the JCR who knows I totally love Brasenose, I stayed there for a week on the UNIQ summer school too plus the people are lovely Of course I'm over the moon/ amazed I have an offer from any college in Oxford (I'm actually very thankful just to have an offer for Medicine )
    What did you apply for?

    I mean it's been underwritten by Queens - I have no idea how I ended up receiving it from Queens considering I didn't have an interview there, haha, but I'm still insanely happy of course and it's still an open offer - so I can end up anywhere! Exciting

    It's a strange thought! The people were definitely my favourite aspect of Brasenose - very friendly and down to earth where else have you had offers from? I applied for psychology and got an open offer and to answer what you said about how your offer could be underwritten by Queen's, I would imagine it's simply because they have the capacity... although that is just a guess, there may be another reason but that's probably the most likely.
