    Screw them. No preconceptions in uni, you do and act however you like.

    You'll never see them. One of my best friends went to the same uni as me and I never saw her, apart from when I arranged to see her. And that was a fairly small uni!!

    It'll be a bit overwhelming in the beginning, from what you've described. But with time (and it won't be long) you'll make your own set of friends and buddies, and they'll just be part of history as far as you're concerned

    So don't sweat it or think about it too much--it's only going to make it worse, harder--and over nothing

    You'll have a blast a uni (not literally, wouldn't want people thinking I'm encouraging terrorist activities :p:) but yea

    Best of luck!

    Like what everyone else is saying, if you're not doing the same course, then I doubt youll see them. I go to a small uni, and rarely see my friends when im on campus. Maybe at night you'll see them if you go to the student union but to be honest, even if you do, you'll be with your own lot of friends and so you won't really have anything to do with them.

    other replies were right, you're unlikely to be hangin out with people you don't like... I was in the same course with an ex-classmate who I didn't like and a girl who lives just above my room, and I just ignored them, apart from being polite..
    you'll meet tons of new people who will be just perfect for you, don't worry..
    anyway if you want to be sure you're not getting in the same group of these people, just try keeping far from them in the first days, and try meeting much new people as you can...it will be much more natural then, you'll simply have different friends and won't hang out together

    **** em. If you don't want to be with them, don't. You'll make your own friends, and at uni, people will accept you for who you are.

    What about if someone you don't get along with ends up in your group of 20 (sometimes 10) at uni! I'm stuck with them every day of the week as it's a clinical course. It's just happened to me- very annoyed!

    yeah that can happen but apart from seeing them at uni you don't have to get out with them at night as well, do you?

    Quite odd for me, I am going to Birmingham and the other people in my school who are going are people who I never really spoke to until the last couple of weeks of term, and I regretted that as we seemed to get on really well. You knows, if you do happen to meet them at uni, they could turn out to be good friends?
