    EDIT: lol woops, just saw above that its for History, right?
    Haha, that's everyone's reaction..."I'm predicted A*A*A*A at A level and got AAAA at As, but I have crappy GCSE's"

    "With those grades, you stand a great chance, what subject are you applying for?"

    "History"

    "Oh....lol!"

    so i got accepted to study ppe at university college. cheers and mazeltovs all round. here's my question for anyone who's been, though: is it a longboard (skateboard) friendly place? for commuting. i'm american so i can't exactly bring a bike or a car over.
    It's hilly and the town centre has a lot of cobbles. You could probably skateboard around the campus though. Depends where your college/department is. Also, Durham isn't very big. You can walk most places.

    Durham doesn't have a campus

    But you can walk everywhere, absolutely no need for cars/bikes/skateboards. Also, walking is much more sociable as you can talk to people on your way to lectures/into town, which is really important in freshers!

    Yeah as far as I saw when in Durham, most students walk. Also, the hills make it a bit tiring for biking I would think...:rolleyes:

    Hello fellow worrier .. its good to know I'm not alone ... Apparently Warwaick in particular takes ages.. so irratating, as I'm one of those people who can't even wait a week for an exam mark- so this is just plain torture!:eek: (although I did get a nice xmas email from Warwick, saying my application is still under consideration

    Have you heard from anyone else? When did you send your application?... mine has been there since October!... but still, my motto right now is No news is freaking good news!!!

    Good luck with your application!!!
    Hello, I sent my application at the beginning of December. I have had offers from Staffordshire University, Lancaster and Birmingham but I am really hoping to go to Warwick or Durham, that's if I get an offer from either of them. You will have to let me know if you recieve an offer! I have been told by many people that no news is good news, but it doesn't stop you getting worried, does it?

    lol, no, thats not what i meant at all! I just asked what subject and then realised it was listed above so that question was useless.

    Sorry, I know it doesn't, I meant it in a broader sense of "university buildings in an area together" in much the same way as the university website refers to "campus tours".

    Haha, great Eager to meet new people.
    Well I applied early October and got my offer through this Friday (Jan 21st) I've heard Durham's notoriously late with law.

    Hopefully, as Steffanie said, my college reply will be here in a few days and fingers crossed it's JB. What made you guys choose it? xx

    Stockton seems really nice but I know what you mean, a bit on the small side.

    I suppose it's what you make it. Looking forward to getting to Stockton a couple days early and starting on the festivities. I'm sure they'll be some like minded individuals getting involved.

    Hopefully!! That would be very cool indeed I'll keep my fingers crossed for you

    I've gotten offers from Durham and Sussex so far and I'm waiting to hear from St Andrews and Exeter (lol still a possibility we'd go to the same uni). I also got rejected from Oxford but I'm not all that bothered. Was your's post-interview? Which college were you at? How strange would it be if we were at the same one. hah.
    Thanks... haha.. this is just weird, I was serously considering applying to Sussex but chose Surrey instead because of the international programme

    Rejected pre interview.. it was more hurt ego than anything else especially as one of my good friends got an offer from Cambridge .. but I know it was a long shot and I'm really not that upset. Applied for New College in the end, was considering Merton, but I prefered New College and you?

    Hi, to those who may like to know, it can take a while for a reply! I applied early Nov, got an offer mid-December and the college accepted me last week. I applied for Archaeology at Cuth's. I chose it because it's the only college with a semi-catered option, but now I'm not sure whether I should go for fully-catered. Anyone know what the food's like there?

    Congrats... 3 out of 5!, Thats really good. I know, Warwick and Durham seem pretty notorious for keeping you waiting, and despite the whole no news is good news thing, it is still a very irratating saying!

    Don't worry, I'll let you know... same to you. Good luck!

    Ah yea, that's a shame. though to be fair, law is craazy competitive whereas most of the people for my course were interviewed. My course (human sciences) was very small and was only at 8 colleges. i went to Wadham but I really wasn't a fan when I was there and I didnt really get on with the tutors so that's alright.
    My godsister went to new college, it seemed really cool.

    haha thats funny about sussex I'd originally been planning to apply there for human sciences as one of the few universities to do it but they cancelled the course this year so i just decided to apply for anthropology there as i liked the course too.

    Any Chemistry Natsci's got offers yet???
    Still only 'received by department' on aes
    Hiya I'm a Chem Nat Sci and I got my offer just about two weeks back, got rejected from castle but Trevelyan gave me an offer last week - rather disappointed it's not a Bailey college but at least it's Durham.

    Don't worry there's still more than a month to go and the departments still making offers. My friend whose amazingly brilliant hasn't heard back yet for maths. Youre still just as likely to get an offer though maybe not your first choice college :/. What college are you applying for? Good luck! Hopefully I might see you there in October!
