    Yep! Did you stay there for interviews? If so, what's it like? I only saw it briefly when I was there to be interviewed (I was staying at a different college)
    Yeah, I had 4 nights there. Loved it. The room was quite basic but I had a really nice view over Trinity and Balliol, the JCR was cool and the quad is so nice.

    Which college did you apply to?

    Yes, its me! Of course I remember you Fiona, did you get into Oxford? I spotted that girl, Shirley Ly on here earlier.
    Haha, thought I might have embarrassed myself there :p: I realised last week that we weren't friends on Facebook because for the past 6 months I've thought some girl called Jess Lee was you! Yeah, I did, Law at Christ Church! I remember Shirley! So pleased you got a place

    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




    Oh my god, that sounds so awesome great-grandparents? haha


    Anyone for Computer Science or Keble?

    Were you? I'm quite torn between wondering whether you're lucky in that it wasn't your destiny or that, en fait, it actually is your destiny. In other words, give credit when it is due -you were not lucky, you were brilliant.

    Ahh sweet, we are the biggest college after all! Economics and Management here by the way.

    I was interviewed over Skype (being an international applicant) and so I have never seen Keble or even the city of Oxford for that matter. Thank god for Google Images and the college website, though I would love to see the place for real.

    I too had a heated towel rack
    You know the quad area with the Christmas trees? Mine was there (so out of the window I could see the xmas trees and the lunch hall)

    I think I spent more time telling my family about how great my room was than I did talking about the interviews
