    Yep! French, Russian & hopefully Spanish!!

    Have you heard anything yet?

    My application got 'moved to a College' this morning, the AES is so confusing so I won't get my hopes up!
    Ah I really want to do Russian too! I only put down German and Spanish on my app but I'm guessing they'll be some flexibility to add a third if I got in, considering Russian would be the only ab initio.
    Do you have an offer?/did you pick a particular college? (so many questions, but language people seem to be a rarity these days )

    yea that happened to me too. i had some conditions but now it's blank. i think i'm going to call up, just to check. but its probably just a UCAS mistake....
    Ooh, please tell me what they say if you do call! The exact same thing happened to me.

    Oh nice! I lived in Indiana for 8 years. Used to always wear purdue apparel until I switched over to being a michigan fan.

    Yup, the LLB it is! Very interested in EU anti-trust law. I feel like I'd get a better career start through a UK law school in that area of practice than I would if I started at a law school here in the US.

    Yes, very satisfied with my offer. I was getting nervous it would be something higher because when I emailed admissions over the summer they had suggested that the offer might be in the 3.5-3.75 range. Not that it would be unattainable, but still....

    LSE would be the other option (on the off chance I get an offer), but I think I like Durham a lot more. I think the career prospects are so menial between the two that going to LSE wouldn't justify being in a highly anti-social environment.

    I'm sure I've seen you post it, but which college did you apply for?
    As long as you weren't wearing dirty, disgusting IU stuff, I'm cool with Michigan!

    I applied to Hild and Bede, mostly because I wanted a bigger college, and they seem hardcore (well, even more hardcore than the rest of Durham) in sports. I feel like 500 or fewer people would be like a) a really big sorority, or b) a really small high school, both of which I've outgrown (she says while wearing leggings, a long sweatshirt, and knockoff Uggs. I wish I were joking :rolleyes:).

    Did I make this up in my head, or are you at UCLA? I know it says Atlanta on your thing, but I thought I read it somewhere...

    I am! Just got my unconditional today x
    May I be pesky and irritating and ask about your grades and blah blah blah? Since I got my first rejection I'm feeling a bit insecure about GCSEs/AS grades. Congrats by the way! You must be so happy.

    Ya! Fellow lawyer. Is Durham your number one?


    Awesome! Did you get the letter by post?
    Yup, then track updated a couple of days later. I got so excited, thought there might be another offer...but no, just durham updating the college confirmation.

    I never went to visit, no. I think I would have ended up going if I had seen it (and had the foresight to apply for accomodation). It was all very rushed and stressful after results day and I thought a gap year would be better so I could get my thoughts collected.

    I definitely recommend visiting them though. I'm entirely sure I'd go to any of my choices and be happy, and I think that's how it should be for everyone.

    I only visited RHUL and Exeter because I was debating between them as a firm choice. Plus, you know, the travel out of Cornwall was kind of awkward... you understand lol

    Almost! I've got my first draft of the essay, I need my teachers to complete their side of the application and I'm sitting the SAT on the 4th of December.

    o goodness when i lived in plymouth the only open day i ever went to was RHUL only because my friend lived in staines.
    im dunno why i have a bad feeling about kent, i cant think why though.

    how does one afford usa uni? is it expensive? i'd always thought (maybe incorrectly) that it was crazy expensive. if it wasnt i would so of applied to usa universities haha. northwesterns an awesome one though.

    Just go visit it, I'm sure your fears will be assuaged. One of my friend's girlfriend is actually a fresher this year for the English Lit course (she added me on FB incase I decided to go to Kent too), and she's really enjoying it.

    It IS crazily expensive - the two schools I'm applying to give a hefty aid package if you're admitted (Chicago cover 100% of the demonstrated need for living costs and tuition). It's a punt, but one which will pay off if they like me. If they decide that they won't give me any money, I'm not under any obligation to attend. I always have Leeds/Liverpool, afterall

    Got a conditional offer here and a letter in the post this morning from St. Cuth's to go to an open day!

    All this is for education studies & maths.. it's all looking so tempting because I had written Durham off as a 5th choice if I changed my mind on career path but it all looks so lovely.

    Ah wow congratulations on your offer I specified St. Chad's, but really I'd be happy anywhere in Durham. I just wish they'd hurry up now and decide as it's a contender for my first choice. Have you applied for the same language combination elsewhere?

    Wow, well done. You must be one of the first natural sciences offer on here. When did your status change to be sent to a college, because for me it has been over a month (sent on 13th October) and it is still at the department!
    Thanks!
    It was sent to college 2 weeks ago
    though my friend got an offer last week for natural sciences there!

    WOO, the songs are actually amazing tbf! Stuff for every mood!
    I have only mastered the one I am doing now, I tried number 1 book 1 but the fugue is really hard!
    ye, the debussy piece is nice and easy and apparently I play it well, though I make too many mistakes when playing, and apparently and I am expected to play flawlessly
    It is mainly the fugues that are horrific, for me! The preludes are relatively okay, but once I attempt a fugue I end up getting so frustrated and angry with Bach, who clearly had hundreds of fingers or something, haha! :mad:

    Also congrats on your offer!

    Where does Durham actually list the college confirmation on UCAS?
