    Thankyou I like yours too (I mean the American Psycho bit, not the n00d girl, though she is fine) I LOVE The Office (US) but it's a shame it's gone downhill

    Well to be honest, I'm really happy here in Hull and there's so many reasons for me to stay, which kind of outweigh Sheffield (although I do love Sheffield and tbh, I'm worried I'll regret not going)

    Pssh, just get someone else to buy you one and pretend it's rum and coke or something manlier
    I rejected Manchester and Leeds (Not the mets) to go to Hull, because I wanted to stay closer to home!

    Don't worry about missing out on the experience, as long as you make an effort during freshers week to meet new people, you'll be fine...

    I'm a 2nd year BTW

    Thanks, don't worry I'll be making an effort, plus I have the advantage of living right round the corner from student accommodation so hopefully I can tag for a bit haha

    Yay, neat, I didn't expect someone actually reading my post this soon.
    I think accomodation works in a different way for us erasmus...ses -or however it might be spelled-, at least when applying for it, my accomodation form was marked with a big orange "EXCHANGE" in the top, anyway I think we are given student houses in most cases, I really hope that works out for me, I've never lived with strangers before, allways lived with my parents and the year I spent working I lived by myself...
    If you join a couple of societies you'll make lots of friends. I'm a member of the Rock Society (you mentioned you liked rock bands). My mate Siobhan is the president next year and she's really nice, and all the society members are friendly. If you wanna know more message me on here =)

    Think you've read that wrong love, it's conditional so it depends on my a level results which are oot next week so nope, not got them yet! And technically Hull isn't my firm (tried to get it changed but couldn't) but I am praying and hoping I miss the grades for my firm so I can stick around here and go to Hull uni
