Good luck Sarah! PPE is certainly an extremely popular course. I hope you get an interview. The waiting is so hard.

Hey Isabelle! Which college did you apply to? PPL sounds like an extremely interesting course. Have you studied linguistics formally yet (either in high school or through a college course?)

No, but I took an online basics course and have been practising with puzzles and language structure. I actually considered English as well, as that was one of my Subject tests and I love to read!

That's so interesting. I'd love to learn some linguistics too - perhaps I'll look into an online option. Would you recommend the course you took?

I think it was called Miracles of Language by the University of Leiden. It was a free online MOOC, and pretty fun/interesting to do
