    i'm sooo excited about yooooneee !

    Someone calm me down
    if i remember rightly, you're going to uni straight from fifth year?

    if so i'll calm you down. pretty much everyone will be a year older and everyone is going to think you are an immature child. everyone will be out drinking in pubs and clubs, having perhaps one of the greatest years of their lives whilst you cannot do anything of the sort as you are too young. you are booted out of all pubs after 9pm. You struggle to make any friends as all the socialising revolves around drinking, which you cannot be apart of. *

    I can help you locate a hunting rifle, if you wish. :p:

    Congratulations and good luck!
    Hmm... tempting.
    I'd better not, I need a clean disclosure to get into the course. I imagine murder would not go down too well with the disclosure scotland guys :p: Haha.
    Thank you

    It's good to be excited! Stirling is an interesting place...

    I'm a bit nervous tbh, I got my fresher's pack the other day and there doesn't seem to be anything at all on that doesn't involve clubbing - which I'm sure I'll enjoy but not 7 nights in a row with nothing during the day
    I'll briefly summarise with one thing each day how awesome my Freshers week is gonna be :p:

    Day 1 - Ceilidh dance
    Day 2 - Sandcastle competition
    Day 3 - Treasure hunt
    Day 4 - Pub Crawl with mermaids
    Day 5 - Debates!
    Day 6 - Surfing!
    Day 7 - Fondue party

    This is the only thing im worried about and you lived it out in all the bits that i hate

    oh well if I don't like it at least I should like my subjects, which is the point I guess haha
    And if I can get a job then I can do other things

    I'd rather just fantasise to be honest :p:

    Just kidding!

    All I know is that it's described as an "Informal meet and greet with the mermaid society"

    Aha! This is awesome :p:

    Thank you for all the kind comments earlier guys. The interview went really well and I got an unconditional on the basis that someone pulls out before Monday 24th. :o: I really hope someone does - the course is completely full up.

    Oh well, yet another week of stress. And that means I'll have to go to school this week, incase I don't get a place. Please please please let me get a place!

    Omg me too. I'm hoping someone doesn't go to hand in their results. I'm dreading Monday D:

    Luhlah, I hear college parties are the best than all the other parties because (no offense) people who tend to not be that bothered go to college and that in turn leads to fantastic parties

    well I'll probably be travelling to some of my friends unis for some parties
    Cos Stirling is easily accessed/close to most of scotland I guess there will be a fair bit of inter-uni parties!

    Good luck with debenhams, I have a couple of friends who work there and seem to think it's alright. And there are quite a few part-time vacancies going in the centre just now, so you should be ok

    Em well there's the supermarkets, but they're all quite difficult to get to without a car. Sainsbury's might have some vacancies in september, tesco's don't have anything just now AFAIK and I don't know about morrisons. There's other bigger shops around morrisons aswell (Springkerse retail park - B&Q, comet, PC world etc).
    You could try the union, and the macrobert arts centre on campus; alot of students get jobs there as ticket sellers/ushers etc., and if your sporty, there might be stuff at the gannochy.
