    Yeah I have a RH offer too, but just couldn't face living in the middle of nowhere, even if it is a gorgeous campus! Goldsmiths is a place I want to BE, whereas UEA is just a place I want to study (not that I won't be working hard at Goldsmiths of course ) and the societys (Smiths/the huge dance society) just seem to slip in with my current lifestyle a lot better than they probably would at UEA where I would just end up drinking each and every night

    Very, very excited now! How odd that we'll all be at school together soon..
    Yeah I agree about the middle of nowhere thing, it's a bit of an issue! The societies are quite great at Goldsmiths, I will admit. I bet it must have been tough to turn down UEA, but to be fair it probably would be a lot of drinking and... yeah!

    Ahaha, yes.. uea's not got the best reputation regarding.. interpersonal relations among students

    I'm hoping the social life at Goldsmiths is good though - it doesn't seem like much has been said about it anywhere!

    Do you know what societies you'll be going for? I'm desperate to work on Smiths.

    Wow thats really early! i emailed them to ask what was taking them so long (thinking my offer didnt get to them or something), but they just said they were still in the offer making process and it could be until May! Maybe im just one of the candidates who they cant make a decision on yet!

    I'm sorry to hear that. It's so nerv-wracking to wait. When did you apply however?

    I firmed Goldsmiths a year ago for English, just been on my gap year so I am SO ready for uni. Anyone going into Loring Hall?
    My first choice will be Loring I think! I like the privacy of the ensuite but the whole 'party/social' halls aspect And I'll be studying English too!

    I've just firmed my Anthropology offer! Still need to apply for accomodation, though. I was thinking about Loring Hall, because I can't see myself sharing a bathroom with that many people, but my mum just thinks I'm stuck up if I say that

    Yeah I have been to my friends Unis where they have En Suites and it is sooooo much better than having to share a bathroom with loads of people. Loring is definately my first choice, I just like being in a place where something is always going on. What grades did you get/are predicted at A Level. Have you seen the reading list yet? I am a bit worried because I kind of do my own thing when it comes to reading :/

    I'm sure you'll get your reply very soon!
    I applied in the first week of March after a few rejections elsewhere, so I'll probably be the last one to have any news. Doing history of art by any chance?
