Tell me what you look like, when you're going, and where you'll be, so I can shout things and run away, giggling!
This thread was intended to be read only by the youth of DiS, not the aged.
and I was asked to tag along... even though I won't need to apply anywhere for ages. And there's no chance I'll be going to Leeds. Not sure if I'll bother.
It's quite nice though...
Shut it, SADDO.
Do people actually go with their parents?
That would be hell on Earth, wandering round a University with my mummy at my side.
I once went when I was about 14, and sat in this garden looking at all the students and wishing I was one. It was snowing, and I fell in love with Headingley.
Oh Headingley. How you burden my mind.
that it holds your dreams captive...
definitely in my top 3 most embarassing things ever: "you can't come here - its full of poofs"
I really should go home now because I can.
i really should be going.
We can be gig-buddies!
Although chances are I'll be moving away from Leeds...
i thought I had narrowed it down to edinburgh and london, but then i crossed off london cos I think it wouldnt be "studenty" enough.
Though it feels like im wasting an opportunity to be adventurous by just going to edinburgh, though it makes sense cos i could start of doing 3 subjects, as I havnt really decided yet and have become disillusioned with the idea of studying physics.
because I have another year before I have to start applying, but I'd love to live in Edinburgh or London. And they both do transfers with The University of Utah! <3
it's ace. The only downside, apparently, is what she calls 'rahs' - there's ever such a lot of loud mean posh girls at Leeds.
and not entirely a headingley problem unfortunately...
I also say the 'o's in words like 'sword' and 'porn' wrong. I get made fun of all the time.
I don't understand where you've got this idea from.
you actually can't escape them if you head to any redbrick.
it's a fucking good thing that you're not going to Durham, Edinburgh, York, Exeter, Bath or for the less academically gifted rah...Oxford (Brookes).
Clifton reprazent or something.
I should know, I'm at Bath.
to see if you were wearing any Jack Wills.
But, you weren't so you win!!!
edinburgh is quite bad, i've known people that went to oxbridge to comment on how 'noticeable' the affluent upper-classes are at edinburgh
more English than the English!
always been better at being english than the english :D
its not so much that at edinburgh though, apparently there are more old etonians here than at any other university in britain, given how many english students there are here its pretty rare to meet anyone who went to a state school...
Yup, and the hideous stories of parents who BUY houses for their child's second and third year. Not that it's bad if you can afford it, but that is serious wealth...
and one year my mate was doing campus tours for prospective students. one person asked her 'can one keep one's horse on campus?' !!!!!!!!!!!
there are quite a few rahs here really, they are all agrics or rowers.
