    OMG, with the theme cowboy party and 7 bales of hay?! We were laughing our asses off for days! We knew a girl who lived about it all and she was stuck with a load of boys she hated for ages because of all the fire damage.


    What I wanna know is how did they smuggle hay bales into the building?

    i chose 4 unis and 2 courses at portsmouth

    i dont know what attracted me to portsmouth - just it was the only prospectus i read that really 'did something for me'
    Same here! Initially I had no interest in going to Pompey other than as a back up in case I screwed up my A Levels. Then I read through the Prospectus and I liked it (in comparison to the crap that the Redbricks produce). The Open Day at Pompey was far better than any I went to at the other universities and although the Sunday Newspapers may have ranked my other choices above Portsmouth, I knew this was the place for me

    Go Pompey

    I got reciepts back from portsmouth showing that they have billed my credit card to the tune of £200 for the deposit, but nothing has left the card! The reciepts were dated the 3rd. :confused:

    Give it a couple more days, the bank might be a bit slow. If not, then maybe you've got discounted accomodation

    I rang Portsmouth and they said to give it till Friday and if I haven't got it by then to ring them back, they didn't tell me what halls I was in though. I still haven't got the letter.

    However, I did get an email today telling me what hall I was in. My first choice was Trust Block but it turns out I'm in James Watson with all of you lot! Don't know what block etc I'm in though.

    Wow. That's the first and most definately the last time I'll ever see "great" and "Southampton" in the same sentence ever again. Peter Crouch... what a joke...
