    I got this in my email today

    Thank you for your application to study BA (Honours)/BSc (Honours) L100 Economics at the University of Nottingham.

    As you may be aware this programme is very popular, attracting large numbers of applications from highly qualified candidates. In accordance with UCAS guidelines we must give equal consideration to all applications that we receive up until the 15 January deadline, and therefore we are required to put your application on hold for a short time.

    We realise that you will want to be notified of our decision as soon as possible, and we will not hold your application unnecessarily. We aim to process your form as soon as we can and you should expect to hear from us by the end of February 2011 at the latest. Details will be communicated to you through the UCAS system in the usual manner.

    We appreciate your patience and thank you for your interest in the University of Nottingham.

    I can't stand waiting this loong
    I doubt we'll have to wait too long, they just want to cover themselves

    For some strange reason, when I had an e-mail off them this morning about LNAT, I genuinely thought I'd been rejected.

    You want to go Broadgate

    :ninja:

    I mean what?

    YEAH I thought it was absolutely awful there. I'm willing to pay that tiny bit extra for someone to cook my food. Also, it looked very anti-social, I can't imagine why people would want to live there.

    Are we talking about Broadgate being anti-social and catered not? Tis the other way around in general.

    I'm living in Broadgate (specifically Albion House, longer walk to Campus, bigger kitchens and nice little community) and it seems to be far more socialble than not. I mean there's 2200+ of us so you're going to meet someone, the Kitchens in Broadgate are apprently a bit small (ours are bigger) never seen one, only ever seen Studios in Broadgate to be honest (which are the antisocial ones) but all in all they are more social apparently. We have a kitchen we can hang around in, talk to your flat mates and such and the rooms don't seem that bad (again just judging by Albion House and limited seeing as BGP rooms).

    I much prefer living self-catered but then I prefer the control I have over what I eat rather than it getting cooked for me. I wouldn't mind half-catered, half-self-catered to be honest as sometimes I cba to cook as I love having an oven which you don't get in catered (obviously). So if you want to cook something you have to hope they do or you go buy it already made by someone.

    There's also a couple of things that they'll not tell you when taking into account catered halls; your fire alarms will get set off at some point at stupid times (everyone does it to everyone apprently) and you have to move all of your stuff out of the rooms during holidays (you have a 33 week contract). The contract is the main bit that put me off, combined with my enjoyment of cooking, but the fire alarms is just something to warn you about.

    Of couse BGP has its flaws. It's off campus (only slightly but still) so for some that's a bit offputting as, depending on what course you do, you can have a longer walk than some catered halls for lectures and things. The amount of people is good but it could get noisy sometimes, not heard anything about this but there's always the chance. Also you obviously have to buy and cook your own food and if you live in main BGP and not Albion that's a 10 min walk there to shop in Beeston (Albion House is just across from it although we do have an extra 10 mins to walk to campus).

    Pros and cons really for both but from my own experience and talking to peeps in catered then I am glad that I chose catered and doubly glad of living in Albion House as it has a nice community feel to it.

    I would advise everyone to look at both options to be honest and I would personally say go for self-catered but whatever suits you best.

    Yup, definitely catered. I'm lazy, CBA to cook and I liked how homely the halls were - it might just be me and how I think what uni should be like (product of too much American TV!) Also, I don't mind moving out every two months because I live two hours away.

    Ohhh thank you! How intensive is the language learning? I haven't done Latin before but I really want to get up to a very high standard by the end of the course and hopefully gain a decent knowlege of Greek as well.

    If you are taking it from beginner's level, I can't tell you unfortunately as I took both languages to A level, what I am told is that it is very manageable as a work load, but that you learn a lot in the actual lessons. I know someone who has done Greek for six weeks and is already starting to translate small passages so that may give you some idea of how intensive it is. If you took the languages to A level, you continue to study other texts as well as build your own confidence in the grammar. This term we are doing Virgil's Eclogues and Sophocle's Trachiniae, which are really fun texts. You will also take Greek world in the first term which gives you an introduction to the various aspects of the Greek world and is very useful when studying the actual languages. You can also take, in some situations, subsidiary modules from other departments or from the classics department allowing you to expand your learning into other areas which interest you.

    I actually live at home and go to Nottingham University. It is actually better than you think. You can still socialise etc and don't have the living costs so have a lot more money in your pocket for socialising. Congrats on the offer as well.
