    Oooooooooh, no I haven't actually decided yet but I'm going to write one for english and one for biomed so when I eventually decide (no later than mid-November) I will already have a personal statement done. :yep:
    This is very, very wise. :congrats:

    Maths, probably at Glasgow, Strathclyde, St Andrews and maybe Edinburgh. Might apply for Maths + French at Glasgow as well. Unfortunatley St Andrew's don't seem to offer it any more.

    Glad to see you're enjoying your start to uni by the way, Rosie.
    Sounds good Thanks, yeah it's been awesome...had a geology practical today which was rather sciencey so will have to make sure I stick in with that one :p:

    This Personal Reflective is the most maddeningly frustrating essay I have ever tried to write. My desire to impress my new English teacher is overwhelming my ability to think straight, so it reads so cold and awful. I'll have to pull out all the stops next time because this isn't worthy of me. :sigh: I envy Ape and his confidence. :sad:

    The university that everyone at my school is desperate to get into is Aberdeen :yep: for medicine, languages etc. They all say it's beautiful and has a great nightlife, but I haven't visited in years so I wouldn't know So, prepare for an influx of people from my school next year :awesome:
    Haha awesome. It's a pretty wee university, different than what I expected. Has a lot of international students which was also suprising (it's been humorous seeing them in their wooly hats and jackets while the locals still walk around in t-shirts :p:) Nightlife is really good, pretty hectic though but there's a good range of clubs/societies too.

    It was very good. I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy inside :p:
    How was yours?
    Haha, did something in particular happen or was it just generally positive? My day was deadly dull and slightly frustrating, but I also received a reassuring email (I do not in fact owe the £7,500 I was billed :rofl: - which is probably a good thing, because it wasn't going to be paid).

    Because of the circuitous method of updating my details with SAAS (wait for letter from Queens', then sent letter to SAAS, wait for letter from SAAS, send letter to Queens'), Queens' hadn't received proof of my funding status for the next year so I was billed the full whack. £3,225 for tuition fees which should be paid by loan, £4,350 for college fees which you're exempt from entirely as a home student. I was fairly certain I knew what was happening, but it was still nice to have the official email!

    So it's not actually as extortionate as people make out? :woo:

    Jeez. It must have been rather worrying though. At least its sorted.
