Hehe glad to see this thread has evolved as many things people are asking i would have not thought to ask, but its still very useful!! Thanku!
I have received a rejection from my other first choice uni so looks like i'm going to put Southampton as my firm !!! Woooop! At mo just considering it against Nottingham!
As for the accommodation issue, am i right to think i will receive my student number thingy when i accept their offer? Will i also get the accom booklet and application form or is it all cyber-based now?!
Also, on the form do you think it's worth me putting down somewhere as an added thought, i'd likem to be with clean / tidy people!! lol! I hate mess and it would drive me nuts if i was with messy people who didn't tidy up the kitchen after use! Hence the main reason i'm opting for en suite! Plus the fact im tiny and shower head height isn't really an issue for me! lol!
Oh after thought.... What is the uni like with having mates over from home and boyfriends etc to stay with you? Is there any rules regarding this or do you get to do what you want? Also, i'm not use to living at home, been living on my own (with b/f) for 2 n half years - just wondered if they put curfews on the halls or lock themn or anything to prevent you getting in/ out after a particular time. And what is the lock people have reffered to in previous posts apparently an alarm goes off if you open it??? I'm confused!!
EDIT: sorry for the long post!
