    I am (: I only found out today! Which open day are you going to?
    I'm not sure if I'll get to an open day as I don't really have the money for the plane, trains etc as I'm from NI! Are you thinking of firming Durham?

    Hi Sorry to invade your convo but saw you're applying for law and from NI, me too :P if you're looking for some pros and cons to QUB and Durham in comparison I can help as I've applied to both too so had to make a similar list recently x
    Haha it's no bother! If I'm honest I need all the help I can get! Everyday my family/friends are asking "so have you decided where you're going yet?" and I'm like "no! leave me alone! :P"

    Are you firming Durham over QUB then? x

    Hi all, I'm new to this thread.

    I recently got rejected by and retracted from my UCAS application for the first round. I originally applied to Oxford for Human Sciences and my four other choices were for medicine. The latter of which was pretty much due to the fact that I have an extremely asian mother and she was so insistent on me applying to med school, haha she claimed she'd disown me.

    I just looked through extra and was happy to find Natural Sciences being offered at Durham because that was actually my second choice after Oxford. I was wondering if anybody could tell me a little bit about Durham and the extra application process itself. Also, what colleges do you recommend? Questions are a tad vague but anything will do for now.

    Thanks a bunch

    Hey, firstly, if like me you want self-catered then at Durham it narrows your options majorly! I went for Josephine Butler and I think there was only one other to chose from for undergrad.
    I you don't then another consideration is whether you're open to sharing a room, I think (I might be wrong) that most of the rooms in the Castle are shared.
    I'd advise a good nosey round the ones you're interested in, on an open day we stayed in Grey and it was okay - the food was good, I was put off because it was really dark in there. It suprised me how far some of the accomodation is from the subject blocks and library etc - I'd have definately needed a bike if I went there!
    Appologies for a bit of a vague answer to your vague question!

    yeah, but at least it means there is still a shot. I would rather wait a bit longer than feel like I have been tossed straight into the reject pile

    Just rejected by Durham for PPE

    Thought that i'd give others that are waiting a warning. Not sure whether all the rejections come together, maybe if you don't get one soon then you will be okay?

    Unlucky. Where else are you applying for?

    I have an offer from Lancaster which I wouldn't be too upset to go to, should get the ABB fairly comfortably as well.

    Still waiting on York. Doesn't look good though because of the rejection from Durham and Manchester.

    Also have an offer from Sheffield for Econ&Phil but not going to be going there.

    Sorry mate.
    I'm soon to join you I feel. Do you have any other PPE offers? Do you mind if I ask what college?
    I applied for mathematics to St. John's.

    Do you think if I get my results next week and haven't heard from Durham by then (next Thursday) telling them could possibly make them give me an offer?
