    Horrible isn't it

    Hmmm... I wonder if there's any extra credit activities I can do to lower the offer...

    Will be a while. My college got a bit irritated with me and some others I think contacting them about accomodation. I asked because of some medical requirements I have, but I got no response and the Offer Holder's Page on the website was changed to some message about how "even those with unconditions [cough me] cannot enquire on accomodation until around September". So for the majority of colleges no time soon.

    Ha, when i contacted corpus christi college they gave like detailed pricing on everything from food to heating costs. They even emailed table of 'estimated costs' of everything and a total. Clearly the college have more time on their hands/nicer.

    M sister got everything on the day of the August results and found out her room late August/September. There is probably some info on prices etc on the college website. It probably depends on the college.

    (PS: I'm so glad I'm not going to study medicine my sister is completely snowed under with work and she has been told 2nd year is even worse!!)

    You have to remember that Corpus is one of the smallest colleges though, so they can probably get information out more easily.

    I think it just depends on your college - some do it after results day, some before.

    Dont worry, I'm also the only person from my group of friends who has an offer from Cambridge, so it feels like it's going to be lonely, but I'm sure we will meet plenty of people there and it won't bother us one bit

    This is totally true. Each college has their own procedure. You won't find out your room allocation until August regardless though, so you're not missing out on anything!

    I was the only person from my school at Cambridge and it wasn't even one bit lonely. I met 80% of my closest friends on the first day I arrived, and two of them literally within five minutes of arriving when they helped me carry all my stuff up three flights of stairs. You have to remember that it's pretty rare for people from the same school to be at the same college anyway, so everyone is new, most people won't know anyone and EVERYONE is desperate to meet people and make friends.

    Yeah definitely no doubt that I'm going to meet some awesome people over there. It's always a little scary though to think about leaving home because I'm from Trinidad in the Caribbean. Most of my friends will be back home while I'm at cambridge! No worries though! C'est la Vie! Thanks for the pep talk tho
