    Hope so!


    Should have made Parkwood your first choice, we could have had a TSR party!
    Ignore me... I'm just jealous I didn't pick Tyler lol

    Is your username from the Sondheim musical or the Mozart piece?

    Edit: Oh why don't other universities have such amazing year abroad options? I don't know what I'm going to do if I get rejected from the two universities I'm waiting for (which are incidentally my first choices!). I actually have a feeling if I get rejected from those two, I'll firm Kent. The course looks *that* amazing! Oh I don't know... I just want all my damn decisions so I can decide already! Is anyone else doing crazy from not knowing?
    Parkwood was my first choice! :rolleyes: Then followed by Tyler, I'll be happy with either!

    Received an offer for History of Art (just two B's!) on Friday but have just seen it due to the 'planned maintenance' of UCAS Track this weekend..

    I think Kent's going down as my firm; I can't think of any major disadvantages of studying there.. Or minor ones, really! Every other prospective university seems to have a whole load of umms and ahhs and pros and cons about them :rolleyes:

    A TSR party would be great! Maybe I won't get my first choice and will get Parkwood? Let's all have a party anyway!

    It's after the Mozart piece, I didn't think anyone would catch on.

    One of the reasons I picked Kent was for it's year abroad options, I'm really looking forward to that if I go.

    Still waiting on their decision, I applied for English and French Law (M121) around the 26th of November.
    It will probably be my 2nd/3rd choice behind QMUL and Exeter though. But I intend to have Kent as my back-up

    Aren't they on campus and self-catering? But I think they aren't en-suite like the off campus self-catering. Apparently they're not bad though!

    That's all I can seem to find out about them! I'd love to see some photos of the inside.. or even the outside, for that matter :rolleyes:

    Have you already applied for your accommodation? If so, which did you choose? Sorry, I can't quite face going back through this now long-winded thread to find your posts ah

    Yeah, I haven't seen pictures either. Unless you visit I suppose it's a bit of a punt! But being such a beautiful campus, fingers crossed it wont be too disasterous in any case! Yh, I applied for Parkwood flats, then tyler court and then Darwin. They don't allow you to apply all en-suite so you have to mix & match a bit. Seeing as it's pretty early, you'll probably get your first though

    I'm going to have to sit my parents down after Christmas to go through all the accommodation options with them.. Honestly, if my Mum could go down to Kent and inspect every room for dust with a cotton swab; she would!

    Anyway, here's hoping that I'll still get my first choice accommodation in January. I met a girl a little while back who's in her second year at Kent - she said that she missed the accom. deadline and ended up without a place to stay last year! Apparently she just walked into the Office the first day and said that she was homeless, and they sorted her out a room in a house owned by the university! Don't think I'd ever have the guts to do that aha

    Aha, that sounds a lot like my mum! It'll probably be hard for her to see you leave home then, many tears forecasted for next September! lol. Oh dear, I don't think I'd have the guts either but doesn't sound like she had any other options - that's nice of the Uni to sort her out though, makes you feel a lot safer knowing that.
    Would you have to travel far for Kent, where are you from? Whereas with me, being from Essex, it's like next door anyway!
