    hmm.. my useful links says: - John snow college
    - colleges

    Does that mean I got into John snow?
    Yes, that means it is VERY VERY VERY likely you got put in John Snow! (which is on Queen's Campus btw!) Have a look at their website by clicking the link!

    Yeah 22nd/ 23rd! I really can't wait to see what's going on and what it's like as I've heard little about it really!
    Yea I haven't heard much about it either and there isn't much online so I'm intrigued to find out for myself. My only worry is that it might be a bit far out of town

    Hey guys. I received an offer for Law on 2nd March and on the letter on Track it said I would be contacted shortly by the college I have been allocated to. I still haven't received any further information and am worried since the open days are next week! I checked on AES and under the college link it said St. Aidans- does this mean I have been allocated there?

    Does anyone know exactly who I can contact to gain information on when my open day is and which college I've been put in etc?
    Thanks.
    That probably means you've been allocated there. There's a document on their website which gives details of the open days for all the colleges.

    http://www.dur.ac.uk/study/visit/undergraduate/postapp/

    The letter is probably in the post but I'd ring the college direct and ask what you should do. Hope you manage to get there.

    Mine took about 2 weeks for the letter to come (for Physics), but appeared on AES under useful links first after about 9 days. Where did you apply to anyway? (college- wise)
    I applied for Univ. On the useful links section it says University College but I highly doubt they'd accept me D: because I applied quite late into the game. How do you know the useful links section is accurate? thanks for the info though!!

    I don't know it is accurate, they do have their disclaimers etc. but from general opinion most peoples colleges do appear under there only when they have an offer and have been allocated! Congrats!

    I'm St Aidan's - I applied for Castle, but have since decided that I couldn't be dealing with wearing gowns twice a week anyway!

    It looks quite nice in the prospectus/ website, so I think I will like it Ah well I'm doing Science, so it is literally 5 mins from the Physics Dept, and from experience literally anywhere in Durham will take under 20 mins to get to!

    For you does it also say something along the lines of "your college allocation will appear on your ucas track blah blah"? Fingers-crossed! Does the college send you an email personally?? Sorry for bombarding you with silly questions, I'm just all excited now

    I'm a little hyper right now

    No - it doesn't usually change on UCAS track ever as far as I'm aware... it just said check UCAS for details of your offer. You are checking the AES aren't you?
    Well most colleges send letters in the post rather than emails, which is of course rather frustrating in some respects!
    No problem- I would be!

    Does anyone know when you can start applying for accommodation. The website says to use AES, but when I log-on, there's nothing on accommodation?

    As far as I know, you only get forms for accommodation after results day in August, so they know exactly who's coming. Hope that helps

    I arrive at 14:50 for the Monday/Tuesday but in Collingwood!
    Do you know how to get from the train station to the Uni? Hoping it's pretty close and in walking distance - or even better some kind of bus arrangements. I'm bound to get lost on foot.
    I'm arriving at 15:50 for the Monday/Tuesday at Collingwood!! I'm hoping there's a bus...even if I have to pay, because there's no way I'll be able to find my way!!
