Murray Edwards College (Cambridge) Students and Applicants Watch
Any applicants to New Hall College? I was an open applicant and was allocated there.
Hey I'm at New Hall now (1st year philosophy) if you have any questions feel free to ask
Are the interviews dead scary then?!
Hello! I'm applying to New Hall for Law. What course are you applying for?
I applied for MML at Cambridge but Law at Edinburgh and Glasgow.
When's your interview?
Just remember that if you walk out thinking "oh ****" your thinking the same as everyone else. NO ONE has a perfect interview.
I also knew when I did mine, what I could do if I didn't get in, so it wasn't as much pressure as some people had. There are some sites on the internet which are really useful because they'll tell you what it was like for other people, then you have more of an idea what to expect.
I don't know what that means???
What's it like? Well, the art work is erm... unushual, the people are friendly and outgoing and the fact that there are no guys living here, doesn't make that much difference to me - I don't know how you'll find it.
If you want male friends then there are the guys in your subject and you can always join a few societies, they're a great way to meet people outside college... and you're allowed to visit other colleges and have people round, so it's really not so bad! This isn't a convent.
Any more questions, feel free to ask...
thought i'd chime in with glaucon also a 1st year new haller, i'm doing classics. i especially agree with the "this is not a convent" statement! don't worry about it too much!
i don't know when you should get your letter... generally it's the same for all colleges; the first few days of january, but i wouldn't know about NH particularly as i was pooled there.
good luck to you all!!
Right next to New Hall (literally) are Fitzwilliam and Churchill colleges...men. Lots of men. You'll be fine!
I'm at Selwyn, but I hang out at New Hall all the time. Great food in hall (well Dome) and lovely people.
The acceptance letter date is co-ordinated throughout Cambridge, I don't know what date it is, but you'l get a letter from them in the first few days of January I would think
The walls were concrete, literally! Even though the Dome is relatively new it seemed as if it had been there for like 3 million years!
The food was splendid, by the way.
I'm in New Block, where the walls are painted cream, but I'll definitely ask for an Old Block room next year. They have a much more 'studenty' feel; my room's comfortable but too much like hotel accommodation.
