Exams are still going on, I’ve just had my second interview and I just can’t wait for this weekend, where I shall celebrate the end of exams by going to the cinema, sleeping in late, and hopefully get the chance to go sledging before all the snow goes.
Waiting for the results from interviews brings me back to the nervous waiting stage after UCAS applications are submitted, and there is nothing to do but hope they really did like your personal statement. By this stage 3 years ago, I was lucky enough to have a couple of offers in, so the pressure was off a little, until the even harder task of making decisions about where to spend the next 3 years of your life.
Some of you may already have decided where you’d love to be, but for everyone else, the next few months will be a jaunt around the country seeing some of the places that have made you an offer, and see if you can see yourself there. When I was choosing, I worried so much about looking at the prospectuses, finding out all the statistics, but I found that at the end of the day, after visiting all the places that I was given an offer, that my heart really wanted me to go for Leicester. I loved the friendly atmosphere, small welcoming campus and the varied course that enabled me to experience lots of different areas of mathematics before specialising. So although I worried about my decision, one university stuck out over all the rest, and I’ve never regretted it since. How is everyone else going about choosing their universities, and has anyone already made that decision?
