    Hello!

    I thought I'd make a thread for us all to discuss where we've applied (and hopefully get offers from)!

    I have applied to: Oxford, UCL, Durham, Manchester and Kings!

    Yeah, I'm applying to Oxford... which college are you? And also Bristol, Nottingham, KCL and another one somewhere somehow...

    Is that a joke or genuine tip? I'm applying for universities next year and want to study Classics, I'm thinking of applying to St. Anne's, it's not a tactical thing, I genuinely want to go there. It's a smaller college and I like the atmosphere and the current Classics tutors. Should I be applying for the more over subscribed colleges?

    No that's a joke, (I assume!) apply to the one you would like to spend three years in. You're just as likely to get in anywhere!

    That's a relief! In that case, your joke was pretty funny.

    I hope it all goes well for you and that you get into Brasenose college and have a great time studying Classics. The world needs more funny Classicists.

    That was a joke, actually it just means I have more chances of being redirected to another college if getting interviews than less subscribed colleges would. In the end it doesn't make any difference, people who should get interviews/places get their interviews/places ^^

    Has anyone got any offers yet? I've got one from Nottingham 🙂. Starting to get a bit on edge about the others though (I know it's unreasonable at this early stage, but still!)😬

    I've seen Kings offers for Humanities and STEM, no classics as of yet I think.

    Hello! I've applied to Oxford (New College), Durham, St. Andrews, Edinburgh, and Nottingham. I got an offer from Nottingham just over a week ago but none from the others so far! My friend who applied to the same as me except Exeter instead of Nottingham got an offer from Edinburgh, but she's an international student (outside EU) and I think they give offers to international students first
