    Has anyone out there applied for Economics at Cambridge?? :rolleyes: I've got an interview at Homerton College on 8th December for Economics. It's realistically satrting to get a bit scary now, especially since I've done no work for it + i'm in a gap yr so college can't help. Was Homerton a dumb choice of college? i have a feeling it might be - but I thought I might have more chance of getting in there. Anyway.....to the point - ......can anyone give me any idea about these evil, :mad: demon-like questions that they might ask me? :confused:

    Homerton is not a dumb choice of college. I am at Christ's myself and they have some silly rules, which is pretty bad. As far as I am aware Homerton is quite friendly. I know a couple of people there and they say that the accommodation is marvellous (most is en-suite). It doesnt really bother them being miles from the centre of Cambridge because they either cycle or catch a bus in to town, either way it doesnt take long!

    I am sure that WHEN you get in you will really enjoy it, it is the Cambridge experience that matters, not the college (although it is quite important).
