Oh, right. I was up for interview on the 9th I think, it was a Tuesday. All I remember was hordes of Medics in the JCR. I absolutely loved the college, though.

They gave me AAA - what about you? Do they give most people AAA or AAB?

They said the standard offer for law was AAB but they gave me a AAA offer as well. I'd have loved a AAB offer as a buffer zone....but i'm happy all the same!

I'd have loved an EE offer .... as a buffer zone, obviously But I'm happy with anything, after those weeks of waiting I'd have happy with AAAAAA.

Where did you stay during your interview? I stayed with a friend, so I didn't get to see what Harvery Court looks like. Also, why did you apply to Caius?

I travelled up there in the morning....had to wake up at 5:15am!!!!!!!

I just don't like spending the night in a place i'm not used to....i find i never get to sleep until the second night...which isn't very helpful!

I didn't see harvery court....just the main courts in trinity street.

I applied to Caius cos its got a great location, its larger than most colleges but its not overly large...and cos the stats said there was a below average applicationffers ratio for law last year!! lol!

What about you??

Well the location was amazing, and most seemes to view it as a very traditional college which I liked. It's strong for economics historically, and has good fellows although only four of them. Evryone I talked to, almost without exception, said the food is rubbish! Every single person points this out, although when I went up it wasn't too bad at all.

Also, it looks amazing, and its reputation is fairly good. I know what U've said applies to more than one college, but I thought that Caius had the edge in many areas. Some colleges were just too big, especially St. John's I thought.

Yeh...i didn't want a college that was too big....but not too small either cos then there are less people there..and i'd assume its harder to get into.

Harvey Court is architecturally minging. I live near it and I wish I didn't. But apparently the facilities are quite nice.

An undergraduate I know said they all have stay in Harvey Court (so that would fit in with what Chegos said).

do people at gonville & caius ever see stephen hawking travelling around the college or is he way above that kind of thing? (job description wise)

Apparently yes. Quite a few students told me they have seen him around a fair bit. His office is just inside the main court I think. A student also told me someone once tried to 'penny' Stephen Hawking at formal hall, although that sounds like a myth...

I once considered Caius in my short list, but didn't choose it at last coz I heard that it's quite expensive. dunno whether that's some kinda rumour?
