Ppl I am 100% certain that ALL the colleges post their replies tomorrow (30th) for all the subjects...I rang around asking at around 3/4 different colleges (Sad...I know!) and all said the same thing and said they'd all agreed to post together 1st class.

We should all get letters same time on Wednesday!!

Good luck!
Arf! Excellent, I live in London so it should arrive on Wednesday. I really want a response before the new year, just so I can choose how to plan out 2004 fresh given the symbolism of a pivotal decision just before the end of the year

Out of curiosity, what made you apply to a single sex college?
u know what when i was first gonna apply to cam....i thought girls colleges no way! it was only when i went to the open day and looked around i thought this is such a friendly place.....plus the fact that ur social life is unaffected was great...its like the best of both worlds....when i went for my interview i thought the atmosphere was great as well.

Coolies, how did your interview go? My first was really good and the 2nd with the admissions tutor was awful. Was prompted ALL the time!

It's good that you've seen that Newnham really isn't anything like its stereotype!

Is that with Education Studies?

Tina - fair enough. It wasn't because you thought that a single sex environment would benefit your education in, essentially, a University designed by men for men?

My friend went to Newnham. Food's not too bad. People might tend to stereotype you though.
ye i think thats one of the disadvantages....i hear from people whove been there that there are a lot of weird rumours and stigmas abt single sex colleges. even right now people who know me wonder y ive applied there when i have a lot of male friends....they dont understand ur whole life doesnt become completely female!

Funny thing is, the people who tend to emphasize these stereotypes aren't the ones who attend a single-sex college! haha.

yep u can put it that way too! i just realised the potential advantages once i actually saw the place and realised it wasnt like a girls boarding school which wouldnt suit me

my first was with the nat sci ppl, it went quite well , the interview with the head was a bit weird, could have gone better. my interview was on the 17th Dec, and there were only about 5 interviewees there. only 2 of us for nat sci

Hey ya! You know, I didn't even think about women's colleges when I applied but I've been a thinking, if I get pooled then, becasue they're so undersubscribed, I might get picked out by one of them. What's it like compared to the mixed sex colleges? I've been at an all girls school for the past 7 years so I'm a little unsure as to whether I can hack another 3 years of it, but someone from my school went to an all girls col at Cam and loved it, so maybe it won't be so bad... hmm...

Haha. Yeah! Like St. Hilda's get so much stick from the media- due to its single-sex status, I suspect

Sounds like it went well! Fingers crossed! Mine was on 11th, seems like an ages ago in some respects but in others it seems like just the other day, it's so weird!

Although, I heard that New Hall isn't a great place to be- if you were pooled Newnham would be a better place.
