    I haven't yet - still waiting on an insurance medical choice. Got rejected by Dundee & Edinburgh over the weekend, so it'll be St Andrew's as my insurance or nothing, which would be a little scary as I'm not totally confident about meeting my Cam offer!
    Tehe, looks like I spoke too soon on this one as I just got an unconditional from St Andrew's. So yep, that'll be my insurance, it was my second choice as well so I'm v. pleased!

    Now I have to go and celebrate with a stupid piano lesson I haven't practiced for...

    on the subject of birthdays i have six birthdays within ten days in august (well one is mine but nevertheless!) and most of those r 18ths this year, woo hoo. four of my friends r eighteen this week as well, i think birthdays just all come at the once to conspire against us frankly.

    Yes, as you applied and were successful. Out of interest, why are you not accepting?

    Yeah, am also still waiting for one medicine choice, as I might have Cardiff as my insurance if I get an offer. I wish they'd hurry up so I can it all replied and neat and sorted - and throw away all the CRB forms and other bumf I won't need from places.

    Yes, I forgot my mum's birthday. So did my dad and little sister. Yes, I'm a terrible person.
    We all over-compensated like anything today though

    I applied at Churchill for Computer Science.

    It was a tough choice refusing, but I weighed up the pros and cons and I thought York gave the better option.

    At Cambridge, I'd only spend 50% of the first year doing CS. 25% would be in Physics or Geology. I thought that was a little odd.
    Cambridge also don't offer a sandwich year which I am very keen on.
    I also wasn't too keen on the atmosphere of Churchill when I visited, I think campus appealed more.

    So I figured I'd turn down the great industry contacts, the amazing facilities in a beautiful, world class academic city in favour for York; equally high rated course, campus, much nice accomodation buildings, sandwich year etc.

    I am sad I won't be going to Cambridge, the atmosphere and style of the town really appealled, but at the end of the day, the whole package (not to mention the killer offer :p:) didn't seem right. Let's hope I made the right decision!
