    Still waiting for the other decisions before I make any real plans ... apart from that, brush up on my Latin vocabulary, especially of the sort used in poetry (that's probably what killed me).

    Well then you have a good backup!
    I'm waiting too, but I don't think I'll go to the UK unless it's for Oxford..

    Indeed. Well, Oxford is great, but don't dismiss the rest without consideration.

    Did you deliberately set out to have the biggest possible contrast between your options, fablereader? You must win some sort of prize for applying to both UCL and Trinity St David!

    Not necessarily, no. :laugh: To be honest, I was really going for Oxford, and I added in TSD early on almost as a small confidence-booster, and didn't really think too much about other options until Oxford rejected me.

    Well, speaking as a Welshman, you won't find me disrespecting TSD. Plus, I see they have just posted a report of a Humanities "field trip" to the Ashmolean....!

    So I've heard. Going to read it sometime as a relaxant/Oxford nostalgia creator.

    Congrats for the offer! Did you get one of those annoying, ambiguously titled emails about the department beforehand as well?

    Thank you!! No, I've only gotten it through Track so I'm yet to hear from them directly. It feels so weird, I was sure I was going to be rejected. Not sure if I'll end up going though, free tutition in Sweden might be a better choice (especially with brexit..). However, it was surely a confidence boost to get accepted! And now I have a great opportunity at least but oh how difficult it will be to decide, ughhhh
