    You are a ripe target for everyone as you have loads of money and little experience with it.

    Consider this. You are more likely to get divorced than change your bank account company. Now you can understand why the banks are after you

    I was thinking that the other day. I've had multiple letters from UCAS, from banks, from my Uni, my Uni department and the accommodation office.

    Every Thursday afternoon through the summer there is the Holy Miracle of the Paycheque as it falls gloriously through one's letterbox and onto the hallowed doormat

    UEA who were my second choice last year for uni sent me bits and bobs for ages afterwards, had to phone them up eventually and say I hadn't been and wasn't going there.

    Every time I see a letter with UCAS written on it I keep thinking "Oh no, more junk mail". At least they packaged my uni confirmation with today's batch!

    ^ yeah, most of what they send is ****. I like looking at my bank statements. im always rich at the beginning of the month and you can read at how your money just got pissed up the wall as the month went on. I got that letter today. It said 'send this to oxford' and then half way down the page it said 'only send this to oxford if you missed your offer', so i dont really know what to do.

    friday mail is always cool coz i get the coming week's economist

    I went through clearing last summer, got an average of three letters per day for two weeks following my results.

    Mine says that too. I reckon it's because they're supposed to enter an address for you to send the slip back to, but they don't need it so instead of an address they just type in instructions not to send it back. Weird way of doing things.

    Divorce is quite common these days. :p:

    Also, that's not the only reason banks chase you, they also know you're going to be owing a lot of money as a student.

    I'm starting to get slightly annoyed with all the university, SLC, etc mails. Not because I don't want information about uni, but because most of the mail requires me to fill in a bunch of sheets and send them back.

    Also, it seems each mail contains a new ID/code/etc that they suppose I'll remember. There's the UCAS ID, the application number, the university ID, the accommodation code, the university website login ID, SLC ART ID, Student Support Number and so forth.

    I didn't know what my Student Support Number was, so I emailed the university about it. They told me to call SLC. I called SLC and they said they didn't know of any "Student Support Numbers" and asked me to contact the university. :confused:

    It also seems each of them come with a password made up of random numbers and letters, all of which are impossible to remember.

    Natwest are sending me so much crap I'm not actually sure where I stand anymore. I've no idea whether my account is set up properly or not! I would like some accomodation information, though.
