No i wasn't bored at the open day... some people were complaining though about being tired. I just found it quite amusing that the tour guide actually sounded like she was complaining when she told me and my friend that we were always grinning and smiling. Apparently compared to the rest of the group who looked tired we stood out.
Actually I can see why i'd be tiring. If you went all around Waterloo, Maughan, the SU and the Strand campus then I guess it must've been pretty shattering.

Did you get to see any of the accommodation? Did it put you off!!

It wasn't too tiring... I'm still puzzled why our tour managed to arrive back at Waterloo half an hour before the 3 other groups arrived. Did we miss something?

No we weren't allowed to see the accommodation, even though the accommodation was what everyone wanted to see. So there really wasn't much to put us off!

The mini-lecture was what most people had come to see, but that was good!

What was your lecture on?? Who ran the lecture?

By the way, if you want any info on the accommodation at Kings from first hand experience, I'd be more than happy to PM you

Thank you, any info on accommodation would be great! As you know, the prospectus doesn't go into great detail about accommodation!

Oh, i can't remember off hand what his name was... he taught us about European Law and he's the admissions tutor for Law with German.

He's my personal tutor, and my tutor for European Law. Very harsh guy. Likes to make an example of people who haven't done their reading.

I like him

I did enjoy whatever he was teaching though, so that was a definite positive!

The tour was the thing i found most amusing about the day though...

nope... ah that was something we weren't shown... although the dancing in the video may have been enough.

maybe that was why our group ended up back at Waterloo half an hour before everyone else.

Btw... kingslaw, i'm taking you up on your offer about info on Kings accommodation. i've sent you a PM, hope thats okay! Thanks

How do I **find** the Stamford St lecture room tomorrow...

*Looks petrified*

I have a map showing the "Waterloo Campus" and "Stamford St" but no indication of where the lecture room is.

If I wander around Stamford St will I find it?

Ground floor - easy to find. The entrance doors are in the main foyer bit. Theres a reception there if you really can't find it.

Yes you'll find it if you go to the Waterloo Campus... if you just ask at reception they'll point you in the right direction. My friend and I made the mistake of going into the Franklin Wilkins building (which is across the street from Stamford Street Lecture Theatre) and were pointed the right way. So even if you do get the wrong building... you wouldn't have been the first person!

Well on last week's tour we had to walk quite a bit more than 20 minutes... my group walked for about probably about one and a half hours, although the three other groups were touring for about 2 hours.

Oh and yes... last week the mini-lecture thing didn't start until about 5:30pm because the tours lasted various times, therefore your afternoon timetable might not run 100% to time. (Just a warning as some people last week were worrying about train times!)
