    Is there anyone here who's applied for Engineering courses? Particularly girls as it seems to be a male dominated course. If so have you had offers straight away, or have most places invited you for an interview/open day before they make you an offer?

    ive applied for engineering, and so far it seems that im getting replies quicker than people whove applied for the humanities or other sciences. edinburgh and durham have given straight offers, cambridge bristol warwick and lancaster have interviews and/or open days that they want me to attend.

    where have you applied and for what courses?

    hello there, i do engineering at exeter university (1st year).

    I think there must be about 100 people in my year, i think about 10 girls. The girls seem just as good as the blokes at most of the course (my friend is very good!)

    Exeter offered me bbb for meng and ccc for beng, if they ask for an interview tell them that you came to an openday and you have exams coming up, they will let you off.

    i was in the toilet in warehouse and she said "your katy who does maths" and im like "ok, who are you and how do you know me???"

    and she goes "i live in phebe (a girl who does maths) flat, i was on a bus with you in week 3" which really freaks me out...she knows more than me but my movement that long ago. then tall blonde jenny (who is alos in the toilet) says "yeah katy shes also called jenny and does engineering too" and it freaks me out even more.

    btw, short blonde jenny is the girl who wears fishnet tights and an extreamly short denim skirt to lectures....now you must have seen her!!
