    That's hilarious! So what course did you apply for at Trinity? I went for Geography & Economics. Did you apply anywhere else in Ireland?

    No, Trinity was the only one I applied to and I applied to Geography and Psychology and Geography and Philosophy. Hoping to get the first one though.
    Btw. Did you hear anything about ST. Andrew's?? Like when they normally give offers??

    I haven't heard anything yet not from them or Durham, (your so lucky to have a durham offer when did you hear from them?) I imagine we'll here end of feb beginning of March as the deadline has only just passed and they said you wouldn't hear until after the deadline. Where is your top choice to study?

    I got my Durham offer while I was over at Oxford for interview.... so about 8th Dec.
    atm Durham is my first choice because, for me, the course is almost perfect. Then my insurance will probably be Queen's because the St Andrew's offer is usually arounf AAB so doesn't really leave much room for any mistakes
    But we shall see. Wbu??

    I really don't know, either Durham or St Andrews but I need to visit both and get offers before I can decide that! I'm quite worried that I won't get offers from either as its quite late in the cycle now! But I might take a gap year if I don't get into either and reapply next year. There seem to be quite a few geog applicants who have already heard from Durham have you visited yet?

    Yeah. I visited back in September at their last Geography Open day. I was lovely. I stayed over and looked round the town. It was so beautiful and quaint and Romantc and just perfect. They've now invited me to a College/Uni open day in March and I might go because I applied to University College but was moved to St Cuthbert's Society. So I'd like to see it. Also, it's the day before the St Andrew's open day so I could go to St. Andrew's and the train it down to Durham stay over and go to both that's if St. A's give me an offer.
    I wouldn't worry too much about it, you could email them I guess and just say that you want to know what's happened your application coz loads of people have already heard.
