    hey everyone, i got the grades and i'll be doing economics this october! )

    I'm EU and wondering about international orientation.
    Are you coming? And is it worth it?

    It's always good to meet other students earlier and make friends already, but orientation is kinda pricy and some parts of it - pretty pointless for me.
    i wouldn't be able to get the airport pickup anyway (since wizzair doesnt fly to heathrow) and the oxford trip is simply hillarious - it's like the slap in the face to all oxbridge rejects settling for warwick. plus anyone could go on a coventry trip on their own. i've been to britain plenty of times so i don't really need the lectures about british culture.
    the talks about banks and stuff could be pretty usefull but you could probably find all the required info on the internet. the only real advantage of orientation is few more days to make friends and party before the term starts but is it worth the money?

    it seems to me that the orientation is more concentrated on international than EU students. so are any of you, EU students, coming?
    While it doesn't look like the most explosively fun orientation as far as the programming goes, it's probably worth the head start in terms of making new friends and getting settled in early. If you don't want to attend one of the lectures or trips, you could probably just get a drink with some new pals or something. I've signed up, and I'm pretty excited for it.

    I'm studying Psychology, and I'm from the area around Portland, Oregon. Best city in the US in my opinion.

    I hope accommodation will let me move in a couple of days before orientation begins. At least I got my spot confirmation today, so my presence there is assured.

    As for socs, I have my eye on student radio, wine and whisky society, chamber music, shisha society, new writing, gin and tonic society, and a number of others. There are almost too many good societies at Warwick; it'll be hard to decide which to join.

    Admittedly, Warwick is my insurance. But I've most likely missed my firm offer, and so here's to meeting you all in October
    I had you down as 100% certain of meeting your offer. What the hell happened?

    And never say never until the 19th. :yy:
