I've just put down Bristol as my first choice to study German and Portuguese (ab initio), and I was wondering if someone could help me with some quite specific stuff about the halls.
My best mate and I are both going to Bristol together (to study different things) and we both want to put Wills Hall as the first choice, so I'm wondering if, on a purely practical basis, it's best to share a room, because it's £1,000 cheaper at the least, we would seem to have to go in the Old Quad if we did get a shared room there and I've heard it's easier to get a place there. So basically, three things:
Are the shared rooms at Wills nice, bigger than other rooms, and do you get a bearable amount of space to yourself?
Are we more likely to get in if we share a room?
Is there some way in the application form we can guarantee to share with eachother rather than some random person?
