    Let's just say nothing's fully set in stone but I'm quietly optimistic! *crosses fingers*

    Oh dear god, please :p:
    I knew what I was letting myself in for in applying to SB halls, and I am prepared for the walk, but it'd just be so nice to have the ..well, the option..

    Yeah, I'm inclined to agree with that. Traffic in Bristol's pretty bad-does the bus actually work out that much faster than walking?

    Brolly and rain coat. I have yet to fail too badly with that combination and find it quite refreshing! ... Although my friend once forgot his brolly and swore he was melting a little.

    This can definitely be done on a bus...

    Theres a difference between having a 30min walk with your mates in the open air and a 5 minute smelly/noisy bus ride. I know which I would prefer, although at the end of the day its of little importance.

    The bus isn't 5 mins in the traffic. I faced a 30 min journey sometimes last year....

    i'm not saying i'd use the bus all the time, but on the days where i really cant be arsed to get up early for a 9am lecture, i'd like to have the option of getting a bus that isn't ridiculously expensive

    just out of curiosity...is 9am the EARLIEST we would possibly have our lectures?

    @ stepheh: you know that means getting up at 8.45 for me (+ leisurely stroll)

    Normally, but there are exceptions. For instance, I have a friend who has just finished his second year of Dentistry and he has had some 8am lectures this year!

    wowza. Let's see how the Union react if they get a peek at this. The SB bus has been a pretty contested point over the last year with most if not all candidates running for UBU positions making it a fairly high priority. I'm sure they'll love hearing pre-freshers saying they wish they didn't bother.

    Oh, and before you ask. Bristol Univ does seem to have eyes and ears on this forum. I found out the hard way...
