    Not sure if this or the applicants' thread is the chat thread but seeing as I'm sure an Oxford rejection is winging its way towards me as we speak, I am delighted to be almost definitely 99.5% sure that I'm firming Imperial. OMGOSH I'M GOING TO IMPERIAL IN 10 MONTHS (grades permitting) :woo:

    Well there's a slight bit of chat (and some pedo-sharks! ) interwoven with the actual "I GOTTA OFFER MAAAA!" posts, so I think you're alright. :P

    Creepy or what? Exactly what's going through my mind, I'm pretty sure Oxford are gonna turn me down too. xD

    What (s)he said....ish. xD

    Besides, their rooms are pretty draughty. Re-quote from a previous post:

    To prove my point: Room I stayed in Oriel was pretty draughty (even though it was one of the more expensive, "better-graded" ones") - to the point that I had to shift the room's "plush chair" (okay, more like cushiony-padded-chair) near the radiator, grab the duvet from the bed and sleep in the chair. :P

    I -did- see Imperial's accomodation, so yes, I can talk!
    AND YOU GET TO WORK. The Oxonians I know can't work during term-time, and during the hols they're busy STUDYING/REVISING 24/7. WTH. xD

    Thanks love,

    A* in both Maths and F. Maths
    A in Physics
    A in AS Biology

    But at least no step they must recognise that I do not need to be tested at such a level.
    But clearly they realise the fact that your skills aren't upto scratch at A-level and this is evidenced by them asking for an 'a' grade at AS, how can they test you on STEP if your A-level skills aren't upto scratch? Furthermore Warwick certainly think you need to be tested at STEP and ROFL at that.

    Never Ever dare get confident and cocky.

    Everywhere I go, these haterz follow me. As collie buddz says.. ' Im blind to you haterz'.

    You are one right penis, you haven't even got an offer so shut up and go play with your tiny SAUSAGEEEEEEEE
    Sausage? I'm sorry but I am not accustomed to these derogitary terms. And me not having any offers? You are just a HATER that just fluked an offer from Imperial. They probably gave you an offer expecting you not to meet it :lol:

    Yup all are self catered which is bad because I cant cook. Have to get some guy to do it for me Most of them are ensuite as well (which is good and they don't seem ridiculously priced either)
    I was looking at accommodation yesterday actually :ninja: In fact I'm so sad that I made a spreadsheet with all different accommodation types I preferred, sorted them according to closeness to the campus and price and etc etc :nothing: I'm hopin for a twin ensuite actually. They seem cheap (extra money for me :woo: ) and it will be fun sharing a room

    Hahaha and I thought I was keen I can't really cook either but I hope to be able to do enough to feed myself by the time I go. I was originally going to go for the cheapest option i.e. shared bathrooms, but I had an en-suite at Oxford and it was so nice being able to take as much time as I wanted without inconveniencing other people so I dunno anymore And I'm not sure about sharing a room... Yeah, it's cheaper (and I'm a massive cheapskate) but I worry about never being able to have my personal space... Also I need complete, dead silence before I can sleep

    Did I mention that I'm also a FDCE (Female Domestic Chemical Engineer) - I MEAN, somewhat-alright cook (!) - as well? Shopping's not my only vice. :P

    That aside, perhaps a Sam Stern cookbook might be in order as a going-away gift...they're absolutely fabby Or if all else fails, cheap takeout every night if you can find it! XD

    You're right, their ensuites are pretty decently priced considering it's a) London and b) South Kensington, to be exact! In fact, being at IC might be the only time that I can afford to live in South Kensington (ha-dee-ha)...unless I start earning mucho bucks.

    In fact I'm so sad that I made a spreadsheet with all different accommodation types I preferred, sorted them according to closeness to the campus and price and etc etc :nothing:
    Ah, the makings of a somewhat-geek...? XD (I jest.) Remember there's the whole spectrum of geek-dom at IC...and there are people who do what you did to their music library, too. xD

    Hahaha, I'm a bit of a cheapskate as well. Besides, I don't see the point in spending a lot of money to rent a room when I'm not going to be spending a lot of my time in it anyway :confused: Ahh, silence before you sleep, I don't mind snorers actually. I'm not one myself (I think) but I don't care for music. Besides, whoever wants to live with me better get used to some sound... I love my music too much. :love:

    Positive Rating!
    Well, I love geekdom and tbh, I'm doing computing for a reason Imperial is the mother of all geekdoms so I better get used to it. Besides, geek chic is where it's at.
