Wadham College (Oxford) Students and ApplicantsWatch
OK, hmm... questions questions... well, one thing that struck me at interview was how immensely HUUGE my room was. It was on Staircase 18, I think- one of the new ones, anyway. Are all the rooms of comparable size and niceness? Or are there some really nasty ones that go out to First Years etc?
I can't think of much else that's of any value whatsoever now, so I will request some kind of amusing Wadham-related anecdote in lieu of more questions and then hit the post button.
In my opinion, although the rooms at the back of college are up to date and modern, they just don't have the character of the shared rooms on the front quad. If you do opt for shared, you'll get a suite either on the front quad ruled from staircase 7, or in the back quad party house that is staircase 9. Besides, you only have to share a living room, you get a separate bedroom as well!
Not the first time I've managed it on forums!
Just thought I'd say playing an instrument is fine for a shared room, a fair few do, and the person in my room last year was in a pretty heavy rock band.
I would agree with Charlotte that if you want a double room it is a bad idea to mention an interest in, say, death metal. Especially if you are female.
You're unlikely to get a shared room if you put on the accom survey that you play an instrument or if your musical tastes are, say, heavy metal (I know of two people - Dom and Pete can guess who at least one of them is - who didn't get shared rooms because of the music they said they liked).
I think it's more to do with matching people who are unlikely to violently murder one another
Metal fans are a minority and wadham should protect them
I meant it generally - if you tidy compulsively and get an uber-messy room mate, or if you like eight hours uninterupted sleep a night and have a room mate who needs music on while they pull an all-nighter, it could be pretty fraught. But people seem to get along pretty well.
wait... thats popa dom...
wait... im living with him next year...??
awwww Wadham people seem really cool :P
She whips now dom... hmm... next years gonna b fun...!
are you allowed to smoke in your rooms? (well, of course you are)
