    I'm assuming that means you've just got offers from UCL. When did you apply?

    Since it clashes you can always email the UCL department so they arrange yours for a different day, they host several of these throughout the year. Although the next one is in February, so not sure if you'd want to wait that long?

    I just emailed, hopefully they'll reschedule me, or just send the offer straight through (unlikely). Feb is a long time to wait with only the promise of an offer and not solid confirmation though! Maybe they'll even withdraw their intent of an offer because of the Oxford interview clash, who knows.

    They won't withdraw :P. You're basically guaranteed an offer as long as you turn up. You don't even have to stay for the event, you could just go there, sign your name on the register and leave.

    Yeah but what I'm saying is that I may not be able to turn up! Oxford interviews are the exact same time as the open day, and so if I am invited to Oxford, I can't go to the UCL open day. That's why I think they may withdraw!

    Like I said, just ask to change the day of the invite. Although you'd most likely have to wait till Feb.

    I've just emailed them and asked for a different date, ah I guess I'll have to wait till February!:erm: I don't really want to miss the trip since it's an economics conference which might be useful for my camb interview on the 12th and I'm pretty sure the trip is compulsory

    Yeh same for me guys, just got a UCL open day offer which is on the same day as my potential Oxford interview.
    You would have though they would have checked seeing as many of their applicants would apply to Oxford as well! I guess I'm going to have to rearrange mine.

    I always try and read as much as possible. Even if I'm not too interested I still want my £5's worth!

    How are you finding the Economist espresso app?

    Very true, I've only recently started paying £5 I had the 12 week subscription for £1 previously so I didn't quite feel the need. I have to say the USA section drives me insane it mostly seems to be politics so I just skip it unless there's anything mega interesting

    I haven't actually downloaded it, don't you only get a few free articles each day and have to pay or something, or is it worth downloading?

    Ahhh man I cannot say how passionately I agree with you on the USA thing, hardly a bit of economics there.

    I've had a sub for a while now and I only remember a hand full of good USA section articles.

    With the app, it is free to all economist subscribers and it isn't full articles it is a comment on the expected news that will occur during the day.
