    Oh nice. I'm from Georgia. I'm thinking that we'll hear within a week and a half at the latest.
    Nice =] I love the south, I've never been to Georgia though. Yeah I really hope they hurry up and let us know!

    Is this a good thing or a bad thing??

    I wouldn't treat it as a bad thing. They're probably making sure that you're going to make use of your time ; ) You could treat it as a good thing because they're interested in your application! Just do what they say : P

    Yea probably. What's your degree choice? Because it would be great if it links well with your subject!

    Waiting is the painful part! But at least they're probably considering your application if they want to know more! : )

    Oh yeah, I think that should be fine.

    Durham's small so easy to walk around. You won't have anything like transport costs.
    Very hilly though... but then again you'll save time for not needing to go the gym.

    Oh my word, you're way better than me...I got AABB at AS and I'm predicted AAA. (And GCSE's are 4 A*, 4 A and a B). If you get in I'll have to live vicariously through you! I applied to St. Johns as apparently they're really good for Theology, though I would love to live in a castle. I have an offer from Nottingham too - we may end up going to Uni together! lol, I applied to Oxford as well - though it is extremely ulikely I'll even get an interview with my grades, but if I do we may end up seeing each other on 6th December! (though I've applied to Keble). You're the only other PhilThe person I've met on TSR. What essays did you send off for Oxford? And what reading have you done for an interview?
    I only applied to University College because I heard it had an impressive drama union thing. I wanted to apply to drama schools like Rada and Central etc, but, due to my grades my parents were like "ahh you're gonna waste your like away trying to be an actress blah blah" so here I am applying to Durham! I'm praying I get into Oxford because the Oxford Review sounds so up my street...my brother is at Oxford atm reading english literature and he's sharing a student house (2nd year) with a girl who's head of the Oxford Review... If I get into Oxford I will be making friends with her sharpish lol
    Yeah, if you get an interview let me know! We could arrange some post-interview drinks hahaha.

    I sent off two essays, one was to do with the design argument (is it a convincing argument etc etc ) and the other was all about the problem of evil and suffering. I don't do theology so I had to send off some philosophy of religion essays. I'm not to happy with my essays but oh well, whatever will be will be. Yourself?

    And as for interview prep, I have just been reading the 8 books I said ive read on my statement.....eeek hope I read them in time. I wish I had put books i had already read lol. Yourself?

    Hi - nice to see another linguist! haha - not a stupid question at all, it took me ages to figur eout what to do. In the end, I noticed that it say to add te abbreviated forms of the languages in the Further details. So for you it would be Fr and Ge (assuming they are post A-level, if either is beginners, then put FrB/GeB.
    Hope that's helpful
    heyy thanks for the answer, soz i am rubbish at checking on here
    i see you're a french and germaner too, hopefully see you next year

    I got an unconditional offer for Modern Languages (french and german) at St Chad's!!!
    I'm so unbelievably happy!!!

    I applied last year and got an offer, but from a different college (Van Mildert), which I didn't like at all when i went to go visit it, so I ended up withdrawing my application.

    so now im CRAZY happy
