    It's the furthest place (or one of them) in the UK (I believe) from my parents!
    :gasp:

    That's the reason why my choices are so far from London.

    Psychology some days ago :yep:
    I really hope I will like the city cause I've never been there, wouldn't be worth it to fly in from Texas just for an open day, way too expensive. But so it's gonna be even more exciting in September!

    Gonna go for the cheapest accomodation and I just hope that it's not too bad there.

    So, I will see you there! :woo:

    Psychology and cheapest accommodation. That will be Hillhead, won't it? I guess I'll definitely see you around then.

    Right so if Aberdeen is your insurance, do you need to apply for accomodation or not?

    Do you have a higher chance of getting into better halls like NCC if you apply earlier (in late April/May). I have accepted an offer to do Management Studies!

    Apparently not. First choice usually goes to the unconditional people.
    The as the conditional people meet there grades etc they begin to be allocated their room.
    However, i know someone who applied on time and everything yet ended up with accommodation that wasn't even in there 5 choices.

    Good question. And does the uni send us some brochures about halls after we receive an offer?

    I have been told once you have firmed/insured the offer you will be sent information about accommodation, either at the end of April or the beginning of May.

    Still not heard back from Aberdeen, applied for 3rd year entry to do Management...

    Should hear back by end of March according to UCAS website so should be something in the next week or so....

    Getting annoyed with the wait, also waiting on 3 other Unis!!!

    Dunno whether the delay in response is to do with applying for 3rd year entry.

    I got on just fine. I've never been redirected to megaclick? Maybe empty your cache/cookies? Bit of a longshot? My track used to redirect somewhere silly until I deleted my cookies and it was fine.
