    I just got my freshers pack, it's absolutely massive! :woo: It's made it all seem much more real.

    It's a mix of the awesome, the scary and the downright strange. I've found out I've got a room in the prettiest building I've ever seen, and got a letter from my college parents (one doing Med, the other doing English), which is very nice. Then I've got a reading list, which is actually just a letter from the tutors with one book on it. :p: Although it casually makes very scary remarks, like "you should be comfortable with the Nernst Equation in an electrical context" and "Conceptually, the most difficult area in your first year will be the Ionic Basis of Excitability". :s: I've never even heard of the Nernst Equation!

    There's also massive booklets on the college, what's happening at Fresher's Week, meals, a scary one about expectations (If you're not always at a 'good academic standing', they will kick you off - they even have a flowchart of punishments for chrissakes!), a CD, and a whole host of forms and whatnot to fill in (including a mildly humourous/worrying one where I have to sign a waiver saying I won't sue the college for any loss of life caused by going near the river).

    All in all, awesome stuff.
    I want my freshers pack :sad: Maybe I'll get it in the next few days :p:

    :rofl: What's the flowchart of punishments like? :p:

    Apparently we're assigned older medical students to be our parents, which I think means they just show you the ropes and are there for moral support and shizzle. Not entirely sure but a lot of them have perks, such as buying their children drinks :teeth:

    Good question.

    Unless their parents have already graduated, I wonder if that makes our parents orphans?

    Uni is going to be awesome UCL right? :nothing: eurgh, I'm going to have to start hating you now. :smug:.

    Student Finance is a right pain in the bum. Get it sorted quick. They want form after form after form after form. *******.

    Whatup with me? I have also acquired a life partner. She [notice the bold, proving all you doubters wrong, me no gay. ] is quite awesome. Just waiting for resit results which were rather marvelous, the resits. Now I'm kind off bricking myself. Never mind, I will survive I think. I'm quite desperate to get back to uni.

    Indeed! No idea how good it'll be (especially considering Reems' previous comment) but I guess it's something to do. Though I may just resort to sitting in the halls and attempting to build friendships with people, the majority of whom aren't medics and could, god forbid, be from kings.

    Don't do resits :o: By that I mean do a little bit of work over the year, saves you sooo much hassle. Not standard advice, but it's quite true.
