This thread's getting terribly boring and whiny. Guys, lighten up, enjoy uni, stop worrying about how many pieces of furniture will be in your room and whether you're going to offend developing nations with your college choice (I might add defending them against jokes in poor taste does far less good than actually helping them). Thousands of people go to uni every year and they don't all sit on an internet forum asking for tiny details of what to expect there. Nothing scary will happen. I did no research defore I applied, a small amount before I arrived and I still do very little research into changes in my course/exam reports etc.; life's fun when you actually live it instead of planning how it'll all go. Chill.
