ok, im going to say this once because it needs to be said, not to any particular person, but just to all applicants because you all seem unnecessarily stressed:
CHILL THE **** OUT!!
just relax!! Your accomodation isn't going to be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so if you dont get the forms within 34 seconds of the date they said they'd come, or that someone else got them, just relax, they're going to come.
Im sure you guys have more important stuff to think about, i.e. the exams to actually get into the uni, so concentrate on important stuff, accomodation will sort itself out in no time...it's really not a huge deal where you end up, you're going to find friends and enjoy it no matter where you are!
