    We seem to have a fair bit in common, I went to tech as well so I already knew my results. Liverpool seems amazing. I rejected Stranmillis to go to john moores. Stran just seemed so boring in comparison to liverpool!

    I know, we really do! Liverpool does look amazing, I've never been over there myself but know people who have went and they all said it's amazing! I had applied to Stran aswell and had an interview and everything but didn't get an offer in the end! I'm sort of glad though because I'm super excited for john Moores, just seems a lot more exciting

    Everything seems pretty good apart from having to travel so far to the campus. The accommodations pretty close to everything. When are you planning on leaving?

    I know, but I think Apollo court is really close to a bus/train station so hopefully getting to campus won't be too bad! Yeah, we are right beside the city centre so nothing should be too far away I'm not sure, I don't know when our course actually starts or anything lol. When are you heading over?

    I think it starts on the 8th of sept, well the start of freshers week anyway. Im planning on moving into apollo courts on the Saturday, think its the 6th. Im pretty sure it says on the ucas letter the 8th but ive heard nothing from the uni. We'll probably be sent loads of information when the a level results are out

    Yeah, I think we get our keys on the 6th so I will probably come over then! My ucas still hasn't updated yet, but I'm hoping once it does all the information will come through I'm so excited for freshers haha

    Yeah, I think I will probably move everything in on that Saturday! I think I'm just going to figure freshers out over there, just see what everyone is doing etc lol. I'm not sure if I want to get a job in first year, I have saved some money to get me through first year as well as student finance so I will probably look for a job in second year or something! Will have to see how it goes though lol
