Thank you for all that info
Now I'll think carefully about my choice of room if I ever get a first, which I'm pretty sure I wont, but still - a girl can dream can't she? :P I love old buildings but I don't think I could actually live in old rooms with beams and such.
I saved the map that the Porters gave me the night before my interview - it had my room number written on it. I just went to find it, and it says "Room 4.3" So yes, as you correctly said, I was on staircase 4
The rooms were very warm and I wasn't expecting it to be like that at all! Lots of desk space though (probably for lots of studying) And yes, it's miles away! But the rooms are nice
If it makes you feel any better, your directional skills can't be worse than mine - it took my parents and I combined about 25 minutes to find my room :P I went to the Z staircase initially and couldn't find where 4 was. Ugh it was so frustrating, because it was freezing and it was quite late. When I say it was freezing, I mean it was freezing for my standards - right now I live in the middle east, so the contrast in temperature was huge :P
Oh okay, 1 GB a day is very good
My download limit at home is 20 GB a month and it never runs out, even though we are a family of 3. Saying that, I don't know if this 20GB includes general browsing or not.
Do you guys generally enjoy your time at Christ's? Or is there anything in particular that bugs you about the college?
I can't wait for next year!
