    If you want to meet girls you should join your uni Nightline - we are always after more male volunteers!

    I do pharmacy, and don't go clubbing or drinking. I've met some very good friends around uni and at lectures, and get on with most I've met. I've got friends with the people in my footie team too.

    Its not the meeting girls bit - if youve got some decent mates who are interested in things other than general relativity then its fine..

    i've serioulsy considered doing a degree in computer science or physics in the past.

    One of the reasons i chose to go for something else (law) was the horrendus social life either of those degrees might entail. Admitadly alot of the potential law students i have seen at open days have been either nerds or success driven ********s but atleast there will be some girls
    i would disagree. lawyers (over here anyway) are the ones who spend their whole nights in the library writing essays, while the scientists have their evenings free.

    but is this actually a common occurance?!?
    Definitely. I think most people make friends primarily with the people in their accomodation. I frequently leave my door open, whether I'm in my room or somewhere else in the block, and I'm renting a house next year with 2 girls on my corridor.
    So:
    1) On my corridor
    2) On my course
    3) Societies, etc.

    You're coming to York, aren't you? I haven't met many people who are really annoying. There are people with definite quirks (sword collecting, unicycling... :rolleyes: ), but not in a bad way.

    cool, i might have seen u at the open day then. I remember i met one guy who was going to do maths and computer science, he was fairly sound and they wanted AAA from him for it :eek:

    Collingwood college is definitely the dogs *******s. It doesn't have the prestige and oldness of Castle or Hatfield, but then again its not packed full of posh pricks who would drive you insane.

    What college are you in again? If I got stuck on an all male floor at York I would actually cry - that would easily be my worst nightmare.

    with law u do ur work to your own timetable. That means some will work all evening, i intend not to.

    what i meant is scientists have a reputation for being male and nerds. Then again some really cool people do science subjects. For example me - i do maths and physics at a level

    i only need BBB. collingwood is the best, people just seem more chilled out there. prestige is not much of a factor, when it comes down to it the calibre of people is the most important factor. i dont want to spend time hanging around with posh ***** going on about how daddy bought them a bentley all day.

    yeah that would be properly ****. I think on a physics course you'll be fine as long as u get accomodation with some tidy birds .

    If i were you and got put in all male accomodation i would move out.

    Here it's definately science students who do all the work. I do Law and I can advise that for meeting girls as well, for the guys stuck in pretty much all-male subjects. In my seminar group there is only one guy to seven girls and females are very much the majority.

    Goodricke. Luckily not C block (Cell Block). I don't think you would get stuck, my floor is almost totally girls. We're on the top floor of the block. The bottom floor is almost, if not totally male - I heard that they tend to put guys on the lower floors for security reasons, but I'm not sure how definite a rule that is.

    Edit: It would be funny if you got my room...

    Yeh they do, hahaha, something about potential rapists etc being able to break into the windows on the ground floor or something. I thought it was being a tad over protective personally...is goodricke any good? How many floors are there in your goodricke block? I was thinking of applying to like the **** colleges...(Goodricke Vanbrugh and that other one) as theyre bigger arent they?

    Umm... okay my typing wasn't following my thought processes there! How about advising them to hang around near the Law Library?
