    Law What about you? I've never been to Durham before so wanted to see it before making firm/insurance choices
    PPE but I kind of want to convert to Law in first year now (I'm not sure though). And yeah, same, I don't want to go and find I hate it or something

    it's ridiculous :/ it should be fun though because of the dinner/ staying over
    I heard people go out out after the dinner so I don't know whether to bring a top/ makeup or not!

    I literally have no clue, cos I don't want to be too dressed up or anything. They really don't give us enough information for it. It'll be great to meet everyone though!

    Honestly, I can't remember. My mum told me to go catered and there's a shop on campus- I think that was the extent of my logic. You?

    For anyone going to the offer holders' days, could you tell me about it? Since I live in Italy I can't really fly over and miss various days of school...

    If I didn't go catered I would starve haha and I liked the way it was a new enough building but had some of the formal dinners and things
    I didn't even know there was a shop!

    Basically my priorities in life are food... But yeah, I think that the formal dinners should be fun, if they live up to the hype. The only problem with Grey, really, is that they seem to suggest that some people have to share their room for a term

    I hate the idea of sharing even though I'm sure I'd like whoever it was
    It just would be really stressful trying to live with someone you don't know :/
    Do you know what sort of time we're meant to arrive at the college on open day?

    Same thing here, I'm still waiting to hear from Warwick and Edinburgh but I'm pretty sure to firm Durham.
    I just hope everything's gonna be fine with the entry requirements 🍀

    Yeah- they do say that they try to pair up similar people so I'm sure it'll work out in the end??
    And I think its between 2 and 4 but I could be wrong?? I'm probably going to arrive at around 3 anyway

    I think I'll end up arriving about 11 because I'm travelling so I might just walk about the town for a while to see it before the college opens
    I really want to see what the dinner will be like/ how they'll seat people?!
