    I like to think that Peterhouse gowns have a certain elegant simplicity to them...

    When can you wear your gowns in Caius then?
    For formal every night, chapel every night, superhall twice a term, various other occasions which I can't remember

    But Caius formal doesn't require a suit, hence :nn:

    gowns > suit unless said suit = black tie, in which case gown = suit.

    And ducks are also good. According to wikipedia Emma have Wood Ducks, which I haven't seen before. I need to get round to having a look in their pond again. Last time I saw a pintail which was rather exciting.

    I can't decide between doing a Masters and taking my job offer I'm becoming less certain that I'd enjoy the Masters and more concerned about the massive difference it will make to my financial situation

    Ukebert, suit>gowns because if you just wear a gown you're basically streaking :p:

    Haha, indeed he will. It'll probably be "Apply to Oxbridge", tbh.
    The job's at the Financial Services Authority, decent pay, decent hours...

    Ok


    But on a serious note, I think suits look smarter than throwing a gown on over a t-shirt and jeans

    Are you getting any bursaries/financial grants for the masters? If not it's probably not going to be a good investment in terms of future earning, unless you want to do it for its intrinsic academic worth.

    Lol. That's because we have a different system. "Formal" is really second hall- because we have waiter service for our standard hall only a limited number of people can eat there at a time so we have two halls. For the second hall we have to wear gowns, have grace and candles but it is the same food as always. So it's not like formal at other colleges where you get special food. We get good food for superhall which happens twice a term. This is usually 4/5 courses, costs £7 and you have to wear suits and gowns and we get proper food.

    There's no point comparing our daily "formal" with anyone else's formal because it's just not the same kind of affair. Ours is just a normal hall but with gowns, and is the same price as our first hall (meaning we just give in a ticket).

    Compare our superhall with anyone else's then come back and tell me ours is rubbish

    It's uncertain. Either way, the career path following the Masters means the opportunity cost over 10 years is ~£250k. I originally thought I'd enjoy the masters and work in development economics more, but given how much maths has crept in of late I'm markedly less certain about it all. But at the same time I don't want to take a job offer out of a fear for financial security and then regret my decision 5 years later.

    Could do what a girl I met this week is doing, which is to give the FSA a few years of your life, and then let them pay for you to do a Masters full time (rather than part time, as Will is), thus not paying the epic opportunity costs we discussed last night :p:
    I could, but I don't think they'll pay for me to do a Development Economics Masters, which is what I want to do. And of course, should I decide to pursue a career in Development I'd have to pay them back the full cost of the course, so the OCs would reappear

    Imho take the job. Who knows what the employment situation wil be like in 1 or 2 years time when you finish the master's. Unless you really burningly want to study more.


    though I may be prejudiced by a certain disillusionment with my own master's atm! Plus the difficulty I've had in seeking even unpaid work, let alone paid.
