    Magdalen seemed too big and scary when I visited... so I resorted to applying to Worcester, big and not so scary Exeter is really nice though (was my second choice) - hope I get assigned there (if I get offered an interview) as has a good past history of not too high application : place ratios which is always good!

    Hi,

    I am from Singapore.

    Are you going for the interview in Dec 2003?

    How did you get the information about applicants to available places for year 2004 entry? The prospectus tells me about the past.

    To me every College seems the same - architecture, course of study....So how would you differentiate between one from the other?

    i was rejected from there
    is jonty still pres of the jcr? i met him during the interview and he seemed like a fool
    im applying to exeter college this year and hopefully will get in
    wow, we must have been at interviews at the same time!

    Jonty is still JCR pres, but there will be a new one next term (they've just started campaiging and I think we vote on thursday) I didn't meet him at interviews; someone else was pres then, and I only really had contact with subject reps. He seemed like a fool? Well, I don't really know him, but he seems cool enough.

    good luck this time round!

    lol! We'd probably just end up arguing the whole time about the intellectual differences between males and females

    misty, you're right about the BMAT results, we should be hearing pretty soon (given that they finished marking the papers only a few days after we took it) - anyway, good luck with your application, exeter is really cute and diddly

    i dont know where the figure are but I was talking to a guy yesterday who submitted an open application and was allocated magdalen...and its known around the colleges that magdalen have a very low no. of people applying this year for law. merton has a very high number, over 44 for 7 places.
    Don't suppose you know anything about the PPE stats for this year?

    I 'finished' them in the sense that I shaded random circles to the questions I couldn't do but I obviously had to leave out some of the ones where they left squares to fill in answers As for question 3... *nervous laugh*... I'll be extremely embarassed if I have to discuss what I wrote in my essay, I don't know what was going on in my warped mind, whatever it was, it wasn't good

    I applied for Classics at Merton. I think that there are probably as many people on this forum applying to Oxford as Cambridge....

    Ah, one of my friends has applied for Classics at Merton! I agree that there are about the same number of people on the forum going for each of the unis, majority of medics seem to like Oxford though

    I'm getting a bit worried about the competition then now -- that's the second person I know of who is. If I tried to extrapolate a statistic from that it'd make around seventy of us, so I'd better not. (Unless you're talking about the same person as I am...a guy at Ampleforth?)

    Nope, different person Don't worry about the competition, you'll just get yourself worried into a frenzy which can't be good - how many places are there anyway?

    There are five places.... I think with Classics there's a fairly good chance in the pool as some colleges get less than one applicant per place

    All of it was pretty hard compared to the practice paper on the website! Do we get the results next week? How did you find out - I do remember hearing somewhere that we get the results around the 24th but I'm still not sure as my teachers had the impression that we would only get our results at our interviews?! Don't know what to believe!
