Well I'm applying for Earth Sciences at Oxford where I'd get to do palaeontology so I'm really hoping I get in there! Everywhere else I'd just be doing geophysics unfortunately. Where are you applying?

UCL got back to me really quickly so I'm guessing they will be one of your first responses. Good luck!

*Jumps.* "I am! I am!"
I am planning to specialise in paleontology and become a researcher, highlight of my interest has to be the evolution of avian species (With troodons, deinonychus, oviraptoids), recently I've been interested in thermoregulation amongst the sauropod species. Which aspect do you find most interesting in the field?

I have applied for Earth Sciences Msci Manchester (interview), UCL (offer); Paleobiology Leicester (offer); Geology & Physical Geo. Edge Hill (offer), Royal Holloway (interview). By far I am think I am going to firm UCL/Manchester; and have Leicester as a backdrop. How about you?

Don't be- you're probably going to get an offer/offers within few days (I give it a week, two if server is busy). If I am not mistaken Leicester replied to me within five days- with a £1,000 scholarship! What are your predicted grades?

I'm considering applying to Berkley to study paleontology at undergraduate and I would like to specialise in paleoanthropology. I'm taking biology, maths, physics and ICT at a level
