Yeah me too.

I'm waiting on SAAS too. I called them several times today and the line was always engaged so I'll have a go tomorrow.
I'm glad my SAAS has all been sorted cause loads of my friends are always on the phone to them and they just get that message the whole time saying something like "your call is important to us, we'll put you through to one of our team shortly"

Question.
On the matriculation bit it asks you to check your advising details or whatever but it didn't say who my adviser was or anything and now it says 'PENDING' next to it and I can't get back into it. I'm guessing that i'll get an email from my adviser/the uni telling me who my adviser will be and when I have to meet them? Can someone confirm this? And if so, any idea when i'll receive this email and when advising will be for freshers?

Cheeers.

Advising will be in freshers week, yeah. You'll probably get some information about this in or just before freshers week. Another possibility would be that it outlines who your adviser is in your course handbook, which you should look for and read online.

There are general details on the "Current Students" section of the university website. There you'll find general information on advising dates. The details for matriculation are:

Matriculation and Advising for day-time students will take place from 12 noon on Monday 20 September 2010.
Non-graduating students (e.g. JYA, JSA, Erasmus, other exchanges and study abroad) will be advised on Monday 20 September in the Library.

Entrants will be advised on Tuesday 21 September. This will be in the Library for Arts and Divinity students and within Schools or Departments for Science students.

Second years and General Degree students will be advised on Wednesday 22 September. This will be in the Library for Arts and Divinity students and within Schools or Departments for Science students.

Honours students will be advised on Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 September in their Schools or Departments.
My advisor's name is on my student record card. Not sure if yours will be too but it's worth trying. Hope this helps

If you're unsure then there'll be someone to ask. If you're staying in a Hall of Residence then the advising times will be put up on the notice board there.

What's the best way to get back from a night out in Dundee? I noticed the last train back is pretty early.

Girls don't have to wear dresses for Raisin Weekend, let alone formal ones! Wear what's comfortable as it'll be cold, you'll be at least tipsy, and you will be going outside for at least one challenge e.g. a treasure hunt. Why did you think girls need dresses?

Man up and walk

Seriously though, I suppose that a taxi shared between a few people shouldn't come to more than £3-4 a head. In addition I read that Liquid (the nightclub) are putting on buses for St Andrews if support is strong enough and Fat Sams already do that.

£3-4 a head. Do you think? I thought it'd be way more than that.

We often did this in Newcastle - if you book a people carrier or two taxis they discount the rate (say for 10-12 people) and so you can get in for £4 each way or so.

Haaa... guess I got wrong info? D:

I just remember someone telling me to make sure I got a black dress for Raisin Weekend so I assumed the girls wore formal dresses or something... thanks for the reply though! That's more money I don't have to waste.

Yeah, taxi is probably the best option if a few people share it. It would be good if they put buses on though.
