    Ah..cool!! Must be fun travellling and stuff!! hehe
    Ive applied for Economics at Warwick Bristol LSE(rejected) Oxford (rejected)

    Where have u applied ? for??
    ooh yea! I loved Warwick when I visited but they didn't do Anthropology

    I've applied to Durham (obviously, being on this thread. offer but no college yet), St Andrews, Exeter, Oxford(rejected), and Sussex(offer).

    I've also applied to McGill and will apply to UBC in Canada but really thats a little bit for ****s and giggles. They ask for much lower points in the IB and so I figured I'd go for it and see what happened.
    The UK is far more likely though as I wouldn't be an International student.

    How come I've seen threads here relating to something like that?
    I hope not, I don't want that to happen ever.

    And congrats!
    I think there's some confusion between what people see on AES (which seems to have gone a bit mad yesterday) and an official UCAS offer. They can change your AES status as much as they like, but once a UCAS offer is made, they can't reverse it unless they found out something to change their opinion - like you lied on your application about something important.

    I just applied to Durham! I had a space on my UCAS and since its the deadline I figured, why not?

    I applied for Natural Sciences at St Johns. (: Don't suppose anyone knows how religious it it? I'm not really of any faith but the religious spect doesn't seem to be the main thing.

    My one changed to 'has been received by a college' (for Mphys) and i sent it off on 2nd november, also another kid at our school (Mphys) who sent it off for oxbridge deadline got an offer early jan, make of it what you will
    Yeah I know... lots of offers have gone out but I've also seen a fair few rejections. The fact they haven't rejected me yet gives me some hope I get to be part of the lucky 125

    Oh no don't worry.. there's a mixture of religions there and even atheists! The whole christian thing is how the college historically was.. St. Johns just has this 'caring' atmosphere which they say is left over from the christian ethos.

    I got a letter from Hatfield yesterday confirming that I have an offer from them to study history

    however I don't think I'm going to firm it, due to (seriously unexpected) Oxford application success, and also, Durham is tooooo close to home. Although it really is lovely. and Hatfield was so pretty!
    I also got a letter from Hatfield for History! Do you think you'll even go on the open day thing? (I probably will, although Cambridge is without doubt going to be my firm... but then again, Durham have asked for lower grades, so if I completely adore it there too, I might even end up putting it as a stupidly high insurance. D: )

    They sent me an email saying I might be moved to St Cuths cos I'm 'mature'.

    haha, I don't think I'm going to go on the open day thing..it seems a bit of a waste of £30 + travel expenses, and also missing 2 days of school (I think?) when I know that there's no way that I will firm it, and that it would be pointless to insure it...although your situation is different seeing as Cambridge are asking for A*AA and Durham AAA, whereas with me Oxford is also asking for AAA...

    Had a friend's brother study at John Snow, he seemed to have a great time. From what he told me of some of the activities and such, didn't seem overly Christian at all, haha.

    I've chosen Van Mildert as my preference. Just waiting to hear from them.

    That's great. I didn't have an awful lot of time to research stuff and suddenly thought 'What if I get there and no one likes me because I drink or something like that?!' (:

    Not St. Mary's, but having been pooled and then rejected by Cambridge (same as you I think), I will be firming Durham and very happy about it too
