    Hi,

    Last time I posted here was a few months ago, when I had an offer from Cambridge and wasn't sure whether to take it. After reading everyone else's replies and balancing up factors with the other places, I figured I'd go for it - and I'm in!

    Name (preferably real): Lee
    Subject: NatSci
    College: Churchill
    Grades achieved: AAA
    Good enough to get in? Yep
    Future plans: I'll, er, decide as I go along. ^^

    Nah, it's there, somewhere out on the hill. Not a bad place by all accounts.
