Still waiting on my info, I'll wait till tomorrow and then ring them again. third times a charm
I got accommodation in Nash Grove but I had an unconditional offer so replied and got confirmation in June I think.
From what I've read I think alot of Nash Grove rooms go to people with unconditional offers,b4 the exams, because gap year students are more likely to what self-catering accommodation
ah congrats, nash is really nice.
as for the unconditional vs conditional offers thing, they say that for pretty much every halls. those with unconditional offers naturally go for the best accomodation: holland, nash, penny c, so yer you do get a lot of them in there, but they don't reserve the rooms for them, its just a matter of how and when people send their forms in, and how they decide to allocate the rooms.
- there does seem to be a proportionately large amount of people who took a gap year at ex though, so competition is a bit tougher - though probably not so much this year cos of the new birks. x
have a feeling i just wrote a lot about not very much, meh
yer accessible rooms are on the first floor, im not sure how many of them there are in pennyc, i think there might just be the one.. but you get so much space cos of the single bed, its good for entertaining people in, and the bathroom is massive! if having a single bed is depressing you so much lol then you can put in an application to move rooms and there's normaly a fair few that are left empty...
and as for penny c, its brand new, everything is modern, get nice kitchens, and you're part of lopes, which is old and has loads of character, so you get all the halls traditions and stuff. the formals are normally a great laugh, and in the summer they do bbqs where they serve pimms and everyone just chills out. love it
im at northernhay house, any one else?
Phew. What a relief to see so many non-drinkers. I am a very occasional drinker and certainly do not drink to get drunk. On that basis, I was slightly - but not overly - concerned that I may have trouble fitting in. Like frankiew13, I was, and still am, expecting raging alcoholics!
I'm not a raging drinker either... i'll have a couple socially but i stop at my limit of three (usually - there have been the odd exceptions)
I shouldnt imagine that peopel will get that drunk not knowing anyone, for fear of the whole theyll look like prats to peopel with whom they should try to make friends >_>
ha you'd be surprised.
i ended up getting very drunk one night with this guy, cos we randomly ended up going out just us and didn't know each other and didn't know anyone else. he is one of my best friends now, but ha was a funny night.
i wish i had your self control to stop after 3 drinks ha ha unfortunately i do not possess such a skill!
Exeter just called me and said they hadn't received conformation of my accommodation! Ah! Which I have definitly sent, and they definitly have. I know this as we sent the buffet form with it (in seperate envelope inside) and have a reply from them. I've been trying to call them, but they close at 5! This is very annoying!
