    Is this Jess Hills from N. Ireland? It's Fiona (from UNIQ) This will be embarrassing if you have no idea who I am!
    Yes, its me! Of course I remember you Fiona, did you get into Oxford? I spotted that girl, Shirley Ly on here earlier.

    Aw it's so nice to see all these people popping up. I haven't met any other PPEists at St Hugh's yet - anyone out there? I'm just so curious! As to what people have said before about meeting loads of nice applicants there, I agree, it's sad (and frustrating that I guess I won't know exactly who's there that I recognise till day 1) that you meet so many people at interview not knowing whether you're ever going to see them again!

    That or a I get a lecture about how I should have applied to Durham because its only half an hour from Durham to my front door, but thats just motherly nest keeping kicking in
    haha, that's weird, I almost got exactly the opposite from my parents...Durham is apparently too close! they wanted me to go to St Andrews I think, seeing as it's where they met...but oh well. Oxford >>>>> everywhere

    where about in Newcastle are you from, if you don't mind me asking?

    They said it will be updated around January, for all applicants. It's not like our offer will disappear because it's not on ucas, right?

    Yeah I know exactly how you feel. At the interviews we formed a group of 7, they were nice people. I only know of me and one other person to get an offer.

    I dont want other people to think Im complaining or anything, Im just saying Im gonna miss some of the other applicants.
    I feel the same. At the moment I haven't found anyone I've met in my college with an offer. (Or I haven't realised it's you if you're one of them! )

    One of the downsides to getting into a different college from the one I applied to is that even if everyone I was hanging out with get it, I probably still won't know anyone when I get there.

    In fact, the only guy I heard from did get in, but again to a different college

    Don't worry, people from Exeter will be in contact with you shortly. And you'll meet people very soon. We have college families, so you'll have a mum, dad, brothers, sisters, brothers in law, etc. Even great-grandparents if it is a 4 year degree! I'm currently a 1st year biochemist from Exeter college, ox.

    Also, UCAS will be updated in Jan/Feb. Just forget about UCAS until you get an E-mail saying your offer has been posted.

    And normally there are no forms to fill (except UCAS acceptance) until August.

    And if any Exeter or biochemists have questions, you can reply or PM with them!

    It's PPE at Wadham.

    I guess this thread is everything I should avoid right now: procrastination and the feeling I already got in...

    I never knew Oxford had its own online shop!

    http://www.oushop.com/index.html

    I'm tempted to get a jumper :p: Too soon?
    Love those jumpers but then I found these reeeeally pretty ones at Oxford, but they're not available at the online shop and they had college jumpers there as well
    I swore if I get an offer I would buy tones

    HAHA It is. I was so surprised when I knew my great-grandmother even before anyone told me that she was my great-grandmother. lol idk if keble has a similar system, but you'll be able to make friends with other first years, and the 2nd years of CS will help you out too.

    awesome yep Keble has a similar system, I found out about it the first day I got there for interviews, because some first year undergraduates were talking about getting married and I was looking at them weirdly

    LOL I was unsure about it the first time i heard about it, but then it got quite fun. My sister took it quite well and married one of my classmates. But for me, there is only one other person left, but she's in my degree, and you can't marry inside your degree, so i'm still single... mhhh... :P So get married early!!!
