    College applied tot Catz
    Course: Medicine!
    Conditions:AAA
    Deferred entry? Nop, 2006 entry
    Nationality: British, but I'm actually Chinese ethnicity. Shandong and Hebei province, to be precise. That means I'm not a shorty.
    Where are you living right now: ... Cambridge.. yeah, I live about 10 minutes away from the college I got into. It's quite sad really..
    A few details about yourself: I'm really obsessive. Once I get interested in something, there's really no stopping me. My major obsessions have been: Gargoyles, Beetleborgs, Roswell Conspiracies, martial arts movies, Tamora Pierce books, Terry Goodkind books, Detective Conan anime, Anne Rice books, Pokemon!, X-Men!!!, Orlando Bloom, Mars manga (and TV series--specifically main character Chen Ling).... erm, I think those are the major ones covered. I've had some minor obsessions too--like with Cleopatra and Chinese history. I suppose watching tennis counts as a sorta-obsession too. My current obsessions are with reading romance novels and history--specifically the Georgians, Regency and Victorian.

    You may have deduced that I like reading from the above list. I also know lots of really random facts from the variety of obsessions that I've had. Like... the names of the patronesses of Almack's in 1812 or so. But then, any self-respecting regency romance reader would know those!

    Oh yeah, I'm also obsessed with FOOD. I love eating.

    eta: I also love cooking, but I experiment a bit too much!

    Great idea!

    College applied to: Sidney Sussex
    Course: Medicine
    Conditions: AA in AH Biology and Chemistry, B in AH Maths, A in Higher Physics
    Deferred entry?: No
    Nationality: British (Scottish, some Irish in there as well!)
    Where are you living right now?: Glasgow
    A few details about yourself: Well I'm Laura, I'm 18 and dying to get away and start uni! I'm pretty chatty, don't take myself too seriously and always up for a laugh/bit of banter and meeting new people. Bit of a medicine/biology geek (it rocks) and have an unhealthy addiction to medical tv shows (the good ones, none of this 999 with Michael Burke nonsense, although the reconstructions can be good for a laugh ) and caffeinated drinks. Argh I hate these open-ended questions! They always sound like a personal ad!
    How did you celebrate when you found out?: Burst into tears down the phone to the poor woman that told me I had an offer, and then got covered in champagne
    What will you do in the months before Cambridge?: Not sure yet, probably go on holiday with the rentals and probably with my friends as well ... spend a few sleepless nights worrying about my exam results!

    College applied to: Pembroke
    Course: Medicine
    Conditions: AAA(A that I already have and doesn't count)
    Deferred entry? No, 2006. Hopefully a Summer of Fun beforehand, but no gap year
    Nationality: British
    Where are you living right now: Oxford
    A few details about yourself: My name's Hannah - I'm 17, and loving it. I am very into sport, especially hockey (which I play up to 10 hours a week), running and triathlon (silly endurance sport much loved by Lycra fetishists.) I also like reading (Kate Atkinson, stuff that makes me cry), watching a bit of crappy TV (Lost), cooking (vegetarian), coaching under-16 hockey (badly but enthusiastically) and going out (underagedly.)

    I go to a slightly scary and competitive all-girls' school and am doing A-Levels in Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths and History. This weekend I am supposed to be doing the plan for my mock chemistry practical, and reading a Very Boring Book for my history coursework. I don't think either thing is going to happen.

    I've lived in Oxford all my life, and already know how to punt. :cool:

    Where are you living right now: Lake District
    A few details about yourself: Well, I'm 5'11", dark brown hair, hazel eyes ... - or are those the wrong kind of details? I'm quite into my maths, and maintain an interest in a few other areas - philosophy and various bits of science for the most part. I've been a readaholic all my life, but have occasionally been known to socialise when the mood takes me. Favourite beer - Schwarze Berliner Kindl. Favourite spirit - Glenmorangie Scotch Whisky. Favourite Wine - Zindanfel Rose.
