Yes, to everyone...
Oxford has ice cream parlours!!! They're amazing to start with. I say this being allergic to ice cream- I reckon it's worth it despite the allergy.
Oxford is great just for wandering around. You'll just find a cool little hippy shop, or a book shop, or a cathedral, or a huge dorothy perkis, or a massive old college, or a shop selling amazing bagel toasties, or... I don't know, but the point is there's something for everyone and a bit more. And just the atmosphere is really cool... OH, I can't wait!
To calm you down angelene: I know there are a lot of people applying to Oxford, and it seems daunting. Don't think that because there are lots of applicants, there are lots who are necessarily better than you. How daunted you are actually has no bearing on how good you are as a candidate. So, other people you meet there might be more gobby, or might be able to recite the whole of the american constitution, or draw stupid graphs with their calculators, but none of this makes them any better candidates than you. You know yourself how well you can think, and how passionate you are. Think about it. Have some self-trust (some self-awareness!). We're not expected to be perfect at 17/ 18, but if you've applied it probably means that you have some confidence in your abilities. "Let your little light shine"- don't hide it away coz of self-doubt which you know, really, is misplaced. :-) It is, honest. Aren't you amazing?
Interview at Oxford eh?!.... Get you! :-)
