    Funnily enough you may find that that isn't always a good thing.

    Congrats, that offer's pretty great.
    When did you send your UCAS off? I've been waiting for nearly 3 weeks for Neuroscience and have yet to hear back from any of the unis, let alone Notts - gaah, torture. Most likely have to wait till after the Christmas holidays now. :rolleyes:

    It's only two.

    But why don't you think that isn't a good thing? Obviously people will meet new people and form new friendship groups but it's nice to catch up with friends whom you've known well for a long time right?

    It all depends to be honest. It sometimes comes that people who know people from back home tend to gravitate towards hanging out with them. For others, people who don't know anyone, it can be somewhat intimidating to try and get to know you.

    That's not to put you off of course. It can work out but what I would say is try to hang out with those people as little as possible in the first week in the sense of if you see them of course say hi but don't go out your way to meet up with them. There's 3 people from my sixth form at Notts with me in the first year; though to be honest I'm not close with any of them but the point still stands.

    I sound all negative, but what I just mean is that it's best not to hang out with people you know in freshers. Afterwards it's all gravy but in freshers most know no one and it's the best time to make friends, so just get out there and make new friends

    Thanks for the advice, and no problem. I wasn't intending on stalking my friends anyway lol; I'd look forward to Fresher's mainly because of the new people you meet. =]

    I sent mine on November 18th and got an offer on December 9th. I wouldn't worry though, they're always really busy this time of year My friend sent her app off about a month ago, she has better grades than me and she hasn't heard anything either. You'll hear fairly soon though

    Yeah, you're right. If they're going in date order I should expect to hear soon or after the xmas holidays. Mine was sent on the 23rd of November so I suppose I can breathe bit of a sigh of relief, kinda.

    Ahhh whereabouts are you coming from? I already live in notts so I can just catch a bus down :P Might see you there anyway, was planning on visiting in Feb myself :-)

    Can I just ask btw, did you get a letter through the post at all? (I didn't but was a bit concerned because most unis send one )

    I'm coming from just outside of Birmingham, so over an hour on the train, but its not too bad But then i'll just have to find out what bus goes to the uni and it should be fine

    No i didn't get anything from the uni... all their info is on their portal though isn't it? I guess when you sign up for an open day thats when you get stuff through the post (maybe?)

    Oh I need to be revising so I ought to concentrate on that but I looked on the Notts site last night and they're closed until the 4th now.

    Manchester, Leeds, Southampton and East Anglia. I have offers from the last two.
