SPOT ON! (sorry to cause offense.. but i couln't have put it better myself!)
I only decided to do architecture bout april last year having realised how boring engineering would be (a trip to loughboro on a two day taster)+ how i hate physics but about how much i would miss being creative and experimentative, and from the beginning of the interviews i was honest with them... and basically spoke the whole truth bout everything... i can't help it but i even ended up saying that my essay writting skills weren't great (ie only A at Gcse in essay subjects) ) and all the uni's still accepted me..I suppose it was my passion for life and creativity that came through! or at least a passion for something!. so just a bit of proof to back up your point!
errrrrr .... cool ... what the hell do you think I did, went there and talked crap ? No. I was just asking a simple question and we get to this.

hey, am so chuffed my thread is doing so well.... havent been online for ages tho. so, i've accepted notts, altho now i need to get AAB. did anyone try for manchester? dun think anyone did cos it's not one of the bast n it seems as tho ppl who come to this site r really accomplished n clever n wouldnt look at manch... Foster went there! OK, am thinkning bout starting a site about architecture as a topic, not about the uni application process... like, whats happening with it at the mo, who's big, whats being built... cos i'm losing touch with it all. so, everyone visit my new post. i'll call it "Architecture for Dummies - Hardcores Only"

Hello everyone, its nice to find a thread where there are other people who want to be architects!
I've got an offer for ABC at Manchester. I chose Man because I thought there would be less public school boys (nothing personal!) then I went for an interview and I swear I was the only one without a double-barrelled name or wasn't a chinese girl! Still the student population is huge, city is amazing: like London except with more rain, is cheaper and less foreigners.

Every time I went to an open day I was amazed by the amount of girls and the quality of them! I felt like a kid in a sweet shop

I'm taking a year out first and going to the A A summer school, anyone else?

Congratulations on your offer.
Im not going to the AA summer school for now, though I am 99.9999% likely to accept my offer into the AA .. they accepted me into foundation, from where I can advance into the first year. . so its an extra year for me but Im still 17 and ... its the best education @ the AA so its worth it !

She said its too traditional therefore rubbish? lol .. what did you have ? ... and then she said that its outstanding ? what ?

The AA is the same price for all students, regardless where they are from but no, im not really filthy rich lol .. Its something like £11 500 per year ... Im applying for a scholarship though.

lol..i know it does sound confusin...wot she meant was that the school has a very traditional way of teaching......and she doesnt approve of that....my work was rubbish because of that.....but the actual work dat i had done (output) was of a high standard....n she was shocked to see it coming from smone who came from a comprehensive school!

....dont worry i was equally confused ..... so were my teachers wen i reported bak to them (actually they went mad!!)....but anywayz alhamdulillah...i got in - dats more important ..(actually im not so sure if i hav got in yet....i havent got written confirmation..i simply phoned her and asked her, so i'll wait for the paper to come by post!)

...damn £11,500 a year......for 7 bludy years!!!..u must b havin a laugh!....how much is the scholarship gonna cover?

What'a happened to all the (future) architects??

Where are you all? No one's posted for 4 weeks!

Anyway, I've got an offer from Cambridge to study architecture in 2004 :cool: (at Selwyn College).

Sorry I'm so late, I only found out about this site just now!
