    Just out of curiosity Tek, why do you want to go to Peterhouse?

    Plus, I happen to know some pretty damn clever people at New Hall including my girlfriend.
    Yeah, you tell 'em! (She is very clever isn't she? )

    Because his school has dodgy links with the place. Being Peterhouse, I dread to think what that means!

    Tek, you don't even have an offer yet, so I'd stop acting quite so superior if I were you. Peterhouse's rep isn't all that great, even if I quite like the people there

    At the moment.

    My offer holder only got 5 hours sleep and we got very very drunk. I made her drink lots of water before she went to sleep though! I think I dragged Jenny and four others around with us on the Wednesday morning. She bought a book from David's and saw me get annoyed with another English person (from my year) LOL.

    what do u mean u haven't heard anything? frm ucas? or about offer holder days? cos i think they're just for the all girl colleges- as someone pointed out before, they really need to encourage the ppl who have been accepted to go to them. kings wouldnt really need to persuade anyone

    Hi
    I was there!
    New Hall, that is.
    It was sooo much fun, was staying with Jenny King. Am doing Engineering. Went to Cafe Afrika on Tue evening, then to some girl's party in college. Lots of fun.

    And for all those ppl ****ging off New Hall, I really wasn't sure I'd want to go to an all female college and applied to Downing, but its such a friendly place and I just really like Cambridge as a place and just want to be there, whichever college I'm at. And I'd decided this before going to the Open Day, but it really helped calm any fears/answer any questions I had about uni in general.

    I just can't wait til September/October.

    I suppose you could go to the open day again...

    I think it would be a good idea if all colleges did it, everyone here had a great time
