    Hi, wondering for Emmanuel what the process is for applying for accommodation in your first year? Can I apply for south court and if so what are my chances of getting into south court? Thanks

    You can request accommodation in either south or north court, but you aren't guaranteed your choice. Who knows how they choose who gets priority. As far as I know, though, you *are* guaranteed a room in one of those two buildings.

    You also get to choose your preference of room grade, which is a scale determining the price of the room per week, and it's based on things like its size, state, etc. But again, you can't be sure of getting your preference.

    Is there anywhere to socialise in day time apart from your rooms? eg a room to go in an socialise, and when is the bar open?
    Thanks!

    I don't have first-hand experience as I go up for my first time on friday so I'll leave that to someone who has a clue what they're talking about

    No, I follow you around, but not in a creepy way. Will you be my godmother? :puppyeyes:

    Well, it is partly that (cos you usually have interesting stuff to say!), but mostly that I posted here once and now I'm subscribed to it. I feel sorry for TSR newbies who are freshers - they've successfully found the "right place" for their query (i.e. a college thread), but they don't realise that it's been dead for months because nobody from their college is on TSR. I tend to post generic advice where I can. :yes: The latest trend has been: "Can I wear ___ for matriculation?"
    Is this thread dead?

    I was also wondering if there was anything specific for the tie colour for matriculation for Emma?

    No! :lol: Emma's thread is probably the most popular on TSR! :p:

    I don't think any college has specific requirements for the tie, but I'd wear something conservative, the kind of thing you'd wear to a job interview. Anything plain or with stripes will be OK, but not cartoon characters - other people may well wear such ties, but bear in mind that this is when you become a member of the University for life, so when you look back on this photo in thirty years' time, you don't want to give yourself any reason to facepalm. You can wear the college tie if you want, but you run the risk of looking like the son of a porter!

    EDIT: This kind of thing would be ideal - just steer clear of "wide stripes" in stuff like blue and red since it might look like a society tie.

    Yes


    No


    Also, I'd probably avoid skinny fashion ties - you'll have plenty of chance to wear them at formal!

    Hope this helps.

    Considering how fast your response was, I don't doubt that this thread isn't dead!

    Yes that is a lot of help, thanks for taking your time to go into so much detail

    It's funny to think that, with a strict dress code for the suit, they would let you were cartoon characters on your tie!

    Well, being female, thankfully I didn't have to worry about suit colour or anything (just black trousers and a white blouse!). However, I've seen a wide variety of erm..."designs" on the gents' ties, including someone with two-inch violins.

    Is Emmanuel more difficult than average to get into for Maths? I know it's 2nd in the Tompkins Table and my headmaster tried to discourage me from applying because he thought it would be very difficult, and mentioned a girl who applied there for English and ended up at UCL having been rejected by Emma. I've seen the statistics on the website although I'm not 100% sure I understand them right, they're a bit complicated :P

    Also, is there a very studious atmosphere there (again bearing in mind how well it seems to do academically) or are people a bit more relaxed?

    Statistics are irrelevent because of the Pooling system, do not use them as a criteria in choosing your college.
    And don't worry about being academical, we get drunk as much as anyone...

    Yes, we are *a bit* more relaxed...

    Seriously, if you like the look of it, apply. Don't get bogged down in statistics.

    Quite excited about (but also secretly dreading) my interview. Looking at pictures... helps; they're kind of mathematical... they have dimensions.

    Best rooms in college - I have a living room, bathroom and bedroom, so it's essentially a little flat all to myself

    Nah, there are only about 17 of them I think and they always go to to finalists. There's some more third year accommodation where you get a bedroom and living room, but not on the same scale as the New Court rooms For interview you're likely to be in North Court or South Court, which are first year accommodation (well, North Court has people from various years but it's about half first years...).
