    Hi! I'm hoping to apply for Maths and Philosophy (although History and Archaeology is probably really interesting too!)
    Did you go to an open day?

    Hi! I'd love to go to one, but sadly I live in Northern Ireland so it's not easy for me BUT my parent is hunting at us going to take a look around in November
    Have you been to one?
    (Philosophy sounds interesting; not sure about maths though!)

    Haha I get a lot of comments from people who don't like maths
    I went to the open day on the 2nd of July and I really liked it! If you've got any questions about it go ahead.
    In general I was surprised by the campus because it's pretty green and a nice size. They're building a huge extension which is really impressive but a bit out of the way from the main campus, no idea if it's more quiet during term-time. I have no idea about History/Archaeology but the staff we spoke to were really helpful too.
    They have plenty of different roo ms and basically they're classed by age of the building (newer=more expensive). If you want I can look at my notes and tell you which ones were nicer.

    Haha, I'm applying for physics!! A lot of people don't get it either, I suspect like for a math course, but I get you I'm from California, USA, and I am considering applying to York as one of my choices for 2015. Why have you guys decided to apply to York, because I need to make a decision. I like the city of York, but we didn't get a chance to visit the uni so I know basically nothing except that it has a good reputation and I'll have to interview if I get an offer.

    If anyone has any other guidance too, just in case, I have 3 universities that I will apply to (Leeds, Southampton, and Sheffield), and I am trying to decide between applying to York, Lancaster, Liverpool, or Northumbria for my other 2 choices. (Northumbria only as a backup, which I don't even know is necessary because you guys have this thing called Clearing which sounds amazing, even though I don't fully understand it haha)

    I am applying to some US schools, but if I had the choice I would go to the UK. This is for several reasons, like I already know what I want to study, and if I went to a US university (with the exception of Brown, which is highly selective) then my first two years would be general education classes that don't pertain to my major at all. Also, in US universities the class sizes are huge, up to 700 students, and we don't have anything like tutorials that you guys do. The sometimes-exception are small, private liberal arts colleges, but those generally don't have a science focus (I'm studying physics).
    And because it's so easy to travel in the UK! Not just around the UK itself, but you guys are also really close to the rest of Europe, so it would be amazing to go to France or Germany or the Netherlands on breaks. In the US, getting around is expensive and time-consuming. You can drive for 5 hours and still be in the same state that you started in, haha. It's annoying.

    Yeah the move will be worse for you but York is a wonderful place that's why I've chose to go there. As for the accent you will get used to that
