Do they expect you to choose first year options before you go or do you choose when you're already there?

we'll just have a disappointing new year, but not Christmas thanks to the laziness of Cambridge. Imagine you applied to Oxford and get rejected on 24th. :eek:
that's what happened to my friend

Equal proportions of environment, economics and law. My headmaster told me to apply for it last year as I would 'DEFINATELY' get an offer But the lack of respect for it and high law content put me off! So I followed my heart

Good for you ! My friend was advised exactly the same thing but in the end chose Philosophy because she wasn't really interested in LE - she received an offer today

Did you have to go all the way to Cambridge for the interview? I thought they sent interviewing panels out to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
Nah.. I went to Cambridge. Their interviewing panels weren't even representatives of the college, just a general panel and some of them weren't even in the law department. I mean, some of my friends applying for law had history teachers interviewing them. Somehow, I wanted to see the place as well as get to meet the actual people. Why would I want to go to a place that I have never had contact with? That would be so weird. Anywae.. still waiting for replies. BUmmer.

You have a meeting in the first few days of term with your directors of studies - you don't need to formally make a decision until then. But it's a good idea to think about it.

The entry stats aren't enormously high - about 30-40% but I think it gets less of the top class applicants that natsci/med/law etc get, so if you yourself are top class you have a much better chance of getting in.

It's a bit like the other good unis that get more apps/place than Oxbridge, the standard of applicants isn't quite so high.

But don't get me wrong, it's still an achievement to get an offer and oxbridge don't do crap degrees

However a Cambridge graduate I know always said, 'In my experience people doing LE were 'there for the rugby' and those doing History of Art were 'there for the rowing' ' Sorry but that's just the reputation it's got!
