Don't worry about not being able to go out LD. I came up for an open day a couple of years ago, and was too young to go out with the majority that did. But I still had a really great time and that open day ended up swaying my decision
Same; I didn't go out but still had a really good time.
HMK, I think you're getting a bit notorious among the 2008 applicants... Could get a little awkward at any meetups next year!
