Officially they do law, economics and environment!!!
But from what i've seen adn heard from a few Downing land economists i met at my interview they do more sport and drinking than in any other subject coz they ahve the highest amount of free time apparently!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
Lol I'll see the truth when i get there but what i cna promise is that i applied for the subject and not for the amount of free time and drinking!!! Lol even though i think i wont mind having less work and more fun then others!

i would be very suprised if there wasnt a meetup, since we were the pioneers of such UKL meetups....and they are mostly fun (if a little daunting and suprising in some cases!)
I wanna join the meetup! - meh I'm not at Cambridge though - just to meet everyone... :rolleyes:

Meeting people online is sorta scary! cus you don't know what to expect! Cus it's like you know the person but you don't know the face - so your mind tells you you don't know this person but really you do! :confused: Although it settles after the first time I think in my case it was simply cus I'd never seen a pic before meeting up :rolleyes: I kept saying "This is soo strange!" - don't think he was impressed... :rolleyes: But meeting him was well cool

Good Evening. I am not a woman. Many people here seem to think I am.
My birth date is May 1987

I am called Avalon. Or, my friends call me Matt, Maff, Maffy, Maffew, Gothylocks, Buuuuuuurst, Hack, Witch, "Old Hag" and I have recently acquired the name of Pat. :confused:
OKi there are a few things i dont get ... lol the last smiley in what i quoted from ur message is called "confused" but now I'm the one confused! You wrote ur born in May 1987 but on your profile your born January 5th 1987! :confused: :confused: :confused:

Hi all! I was just wondering, has anyone on this board received offers from Pembroke, with a view to starting in 2005? I've been offered a place (AAA) to read History. I'd love to hear back from anyone who hopes to go to Pembroke this October/other historically-minded folks! :-)

Charlotte

P.S
Message for Beatrice: If you are reading this Beatrice, let me know how you got on (RE 9/12/04) - have you been offered a place for Eng Lit? Hope so!
Yeah I got one for Med, see you in Pem at 2005 then.

As a science student i'm sure I wont' get as much free time as you!
Actually i promise that the free time is only bonus! I'm in love with the subject thatt only Cambridge proposes! lol when i was 5 i wanted to be an oceanographer coz i've always lived by the sea and i was obsessed with dolfins, killer wales, sea turttle and i wanted to save them! :rolleyes: lol i was five ... then at 12 i decided that i was too social to work alone and research all day so that i wanted to be a lawyer becoz i loved talking and defending poeple! lol i also think that at some point i saw legally blond and that just influenced me a bit! then at 15 i realised that i didnt want to learn by heart all the penal code ... and that i'd be bored to write essays on it ... and when i started Economics i discovered that i loved the subject and that it was easy to understand for me so i went for Economics at uni or mostly Interrnational or development economics... And then i found Land Economy which regrouped a bit all my interests! This subject was made for me ! lol no really I love what i've read abotu the program plus i know a lot about it coz i do the IB diploma and for that u got to write a 4000 words essay on the topic of ur choice and i chose sustainable development which covers law, economics and environment! That's what got me in Cambridge (or at least a low offer!)

But the free time will definately stay a + and if i juge by the amount of time scientific students like Camford (It's the 2nd time i refer to him... i know... but I promise I'm not obsessed, it's just the easiest name to remember) spend on this forum, I'd say u'll get free time aswell!

I was born in 1987, thats all U need to know i don't like putting my real details on the internet...

Actually, films have influenced a llot of things I do... for example after seeing I,Robot I wanted to be a detective in New York... or a robot scientist... maybe I can still become one if I pick the maths up at Cam! Now that would be cool...

Oooh ooh I used to do the IB... what HLs and SLs are u doing? What's ur extended essay on?
