    Hey thanks - you too! I take it you're an American? I lived in the US for 7 years, returned here almost three years back.
    Was it the fact that I started my post with "Awesome!" that gave me away? I'll have to work on that. Where did you live in the US? I'm really excited to be coming to the UK. I've only been there once.

    YEAH! Were any of these people at St. Chad's? I really really hope it isn't over-subscribed for music :confused:
    Hmm, I don't know. I've don't think I've seen a lot of St. Chad's people wandering around, but then again, I don't even think I've seen any other music people!:confused:

    hahaha well you might've wanted to be close to them - to have home cooked meals or something? I know people that are like "I have family in Bristol.. ok, I think I'll apply to Bristol" whereas family really doesn't factor in at all for me - I know I won't see them lol.

    Yea I'm not too excited about St Andrews.. I'll consider it though if I get an offer.

    Ah ok cool we have Geog in common, I find it quite amusing that you felt the need to justify it.
    I do English Higher, Biology Higher, Geography Higher, Maths Standard (its the middle of three options) Italian B Standard and Art Standard.

    lol.. I always have a really hard time trying to explain Anthropology. In its broadest sense its the study of humanity and this can basically be through culture/society and biology. One distinction I've read between Anthropology and the other types of human sciences is that anthropologists immerse themselves within a culture to gain a better understanding rather than pure observation -- though I don't really know to what extent thats true at an undergraduate level. Anyways, what I like is how it seems to overlap with so many of the things I'm interested in, Biology, Geography, Linguistics, the Arts (literature, history of art.. etc in terms of culture), Psychology, Sociology.. it lets me be a bit indecisive and greedy, which I love!

    I'm sorry, I'm sure you told me before, what have you applied for again?
    Im applying for Economics.. Did u send an open application or did u choose a college?
    It can get annoying also if you are too close to family!
    Here most ppl think that Geography is about map marking.. and those kind of pointless things even though its actually not.

    Ah.. that sounds really interesting..especially how its a combination of other subjects, so you have a range of things to pick and choose from.

    Does anyone know if the accommodation's nice (especially about chances of getting a single room!) and what the food's like? (Obviously the most important thing )

    Same thing happened to me. I'm still getting used to it. I heard the food is the best on campus and the rooms have been refurbished so they're nice. There does seem to be a lot of room sharing though, which is worrying me. I'm going to the open day though. I will probably love it when I've seen it.

    At least that's good about the food then!
    Yeah, I'm sure I'll love it when I see it - I was just really hoping to get a bailey college.
    But I'm not too keen on the idea of room sharing so that might be a problem...

    No guarantees but generally a good sign. Means your department want to offer you a place. They are still deciding on your college. Good luck!

    I think it means you've been accepted Of course there is the disclaimer at the bottom, that it may be an administrative error but at this stage in the process I don't think that really matters.

    Also, nice to see another NI person applying to Durham (even if you are from Methody) What college did you apply to?
