    It's like around £50 to go, but that includes everything including the coach to get there. Everybody goes so I'm sure we can all find the money from somewhere

    Love how this is turning into a bristol thread atm! Thanks, this is really helpful, exciting learning little things like this I like the way that there is variety in manor hall but will have to wait and see...

    Have they told you anything about AVS 2010 yet? I know it's in edinburgh, do you think it will be really expensive because it's a long way to travel?

    6 months!! :woo:
    It won't be cheap! Am scared of the hours travelling, going to london was superb, we arrived rather wasted and went straight into a club still on a high. I think by the time we get to Ed we might be paralytic, drowning in a pool of our own vomit. I would LOVE to fly there, my idea of a road trip is no longer than 2 hrs ;p Costumes are announced a few weeks prior to event, bristols are always the best ;D Last year we were oompa loompas, (thats right, sacrificing vanity for laughs high five?).

    Ah, quite outside the realm of my expertise, but if you have specific questions about any halls I'd be happy to ask vetties that go there. All I know is that Wills have formal fridays and they have to wear some kind of cape type thing. Quite a few vets at wills this year actually, and loads in manor as well. Also I hear the food is good, but you don't actually gain any weight because you're always walking

    Yep, they taught us the 'bristol rangers' song on the bus towards initiations, I was halfway down those HUUGE strongbow bottles. A lot of naked people that day!

    Theres a freshers bar crawl I think, its always dress up but I dont know what the theme is. If you have spare time in summer you could always prepare something original, the more commitment the better. You may even be my vet daughters LAL, me and my vet wife have to write a letter for you lot (should probably make a start with that actually )

    And just general uni tips: Bring ALL dress up/carnival type items with you, you have no idea how many chavs vs rahs, school uniform type events there are, and vets especially like dress up, in my year whenever 2/3 people have a bday in the same month they make a 'super' dress up barcrawl event.

    Hehe, no probs! You become very innovative as time goes by, don't worry

    Ahh very excited for you guys, first year is pretty awesome. Anatomy is pretty funny, at first you're like 'woah this is hard', and then you get to second term and you think 'nah first term was easy, this is definitely hard,' and apparently in 2nd year you're like 'wtf this is actually impossible'. 2nd year is supposed to be the worst out of the five A 5th year ranked the years 5, 3, 1, 4, 2, in order of increasing suckiness (or decreasing awesomeness if you're a glass half full kind of person )

    2nd year could be worse...
    I initially thought at the start of this year, what's all the fuss about, but then the info you have to learn quickly builds up! There's a lot more anatomy to learn, but if you like anatomy it's fine Physiology and parasitology are the ones to watch out for. Learning well over 100 parasites and their lifecycles, symptoms in the animals, treatment and control is difficult, and physiology is fine apart from the exam format. Animal health and husbandry is just as bad as animal management though, you even get to enjoy learning all about animal nutrition :P
    If it is the worst year, at least you get it out of the way quite early on in the course, lol.

    Gosh... you have 3 dissections a week don't you? I like anatomy, but it can become quite overbearing, and I cant study it for prolonged periods of time, it's too factsy as opposed to concept oriented. Parasitology sounds better than anatomy ! Are you thinking of intercalating ?

    Yep, 3 dissections a week, so anatomy takes up pretty much 1.5 days of every week. Don't worry, Glenn and Domingo make it bearable! To make it more fun, get one of Domingo's qus wrong, cos it's hilarious, he goes "no, how can you not know it, it's so simple!"
    I'm thinking possibly in veterinary pathology at the RVC, cos I'm thinking that might be an area I'd want to specialise in after I qualify.
    Intercalation's also a good idea if you want to do scholarships in America once you're qualified.
    What do you think about intercalating?

    Thats very exciting, though I think a year living on my own in London would require some balls! Hehe, I've heard Domingo has a name register and just picks on random people and learns all the boys' names because theres not many of them! All we've seen of him this year is random dissections where he comes over and asks 'are you winning, are you winning??'. I quite like biochemistry, so I think if I were to intercalate it would be in that sort of realm, but more related to the course. I'd like to just get through more of the syllabus and see what I'm good at/into though =)

    I'm sorry to tell you, but he does like picking on the post-grads and the international students, so you may be one of his faves! Along with the lads - are any of them called Josh in your year? He had a real problem trying to pronounce Josh, he kept saying it as an elongated George, lol.
    He says that in our dissections as well - that's almost all you see of him during most of the dissection, apart from the 1/3 class tutorials.
    You'll probably like pharmacology next year if you like biochem, cos it's a bit like applied biochem.
