    We wear our gowns, just so we stand out from the applicants... I just find wearing it annoying tbh, it keeps slipping down, etc.
    That's really bizarre. I can't even imagine Queens' trying this: all the student helpers were just identified at the beginning of each morning/afternoon session by the fellow giving the little introductory talk, and generally some joke made about the fact that we're invariably the scruffiest people in the room.

    I think wearing a gown sort of adds an extra barrier and might make some applicants more uncomfortable :s: What happened to name tags?

    I despise name tags! I agree that gowns might be a barrier, but that aside I think they're a good idea. It makes them stand out, which could be useful - and they could easily wear scruffy jeans underneath.
    Oh - ukebert. Our student invigilators wear gowns, I discovered today. And some of them are undergrads because college were short.

    I'm going to go for Hobbes, Sieyes, Weber, Tocqueville, Schmitt and Schumpeter I think. I really enjoy those authors anyway.
    I liked Schumpeter and Tocqueville :five: I quickly gave up on the latter, though, after I tried to read him :banghead: Big mistake :sadnod: And I loved Kant, so that was easy. Marx I chose for efficiency.

    I guess the gown thing for me is a little odd, seeing as I've only worn a gown once. To me, gowns bring up images of proctors and exams.

    I suppose so. I can see that for some people it would be a barrier. For others it would just make it more exciting (:o:)

    I've been reading in the library. They've changed the opening times Library closes 5, and law library at 10. Still.. got a bit done, and then an hour at the gym. And now I have to spend two hours argueing with my hair lest I scare the interviewees further tomorrow :dry:

    I also invigilated an exam today - for MML as well, which was a weird sense of deja vu...

    Unfortunately the room was really hot, & I almost fell asleep :/

    Travesty I haven't done any work today, but I will start tomorrow

    I will be coming back to Cambridge on Thursday I'm escorting my sister back from her interview by train, as everybody else is busy. She's starting to panic, poor thing. Still, it means that I get to stroll around Cambridge for a bit and visit my grandmother.

    And I'm going to visit my grandparents this weekend, where I will doubtless talk about Morris for 3 days solid
