    And some people need to have a bath. If only to remove all the crap and spam that resides in their mouths.

    I went to the exeter one last year... came back with enough pens to last my a year, enough brochures to break many backs, enough to note pad to last a long time, two disposible cameras, one foam hand, one bag and a bank account complete with cheque book... Oh and several CD-Roms, and I got a lot of post after that one as well....

    hehe - i have an unconditional offer there and that is currently my back up choice - i do not want to go to SOAS if i dont get into UCL - i need an A in french for UCL - otherwise Essex is my second choice because it is an excellent university overall and especially good at law - up and coming as they say - i am still waiting for King's to reply though - they would then naturally become 2nd choice because it is in London

    I went to a higher education fair a couple of weeks ago and was quite surprised by the number of unis there, including most of the top ones (oxbridge, imperial, warwick, ucl, lse, bristol...etc). Most of the unis were quite helpful although I regretted picking up too many prspestuses as they were very heavy to carry home! One of the unis (Bournemouth I think) were giving out sweets but they were really icky and said something like 'Bournemouth 2002' on them...

    Yeah I hadn't thought about how much they'd all weigh!! I only saw one stand with sweets on though
