    Good luck with that! I applied for New College last year but didn't get in (greatful too since I prefer my apartment...) For the very least, hope they do get back to you

    Thanks for that. Do they notify you even if a person is unsuccessful in getting a place?

    Nope... I had to call them up to ask whether I got in or not as I was overseas at the time... It's easier however to get a place mid-year than at the beginning of the year as people always come and go at colleges.

    Come to Basser guys! Best college at New South. We aren't dry or hippy like New, gay like Warrane, soft and kosher like Shalom, small and studious like Goldstein, not pig headed pingers like Baxter, or gay like Creston either. Plus we have the best layout, courtyards, everyone is tight with each other....we have a great time!

    Re: Answers to Accommodation/Colleges questions at UNSW

    Hi everyone! I'm an international student who got a place for UNSW next yr and i applied for de kensington colleges.. are there interviews for international students? cos i only received an email stating that they will let me know the outcome in january.. but that's a little problematic for me if i don't get a place cos i have a million things to settle back home and i'll only be there one week before term starts!

    and i would wanna apply to new college but the letters of recommendation part drives me nuts! cos i cant get my prinicipal to fill in that letter they have on their website cos i've alr graduated from high school for quite some time now, and i'm quite sure mr principal didnt really know who i was then HAHA. help anyone?

    If you're in Sydney now you could just call up and try to arrange an interview in order to explain why you think you belong in [specified college]

    Not a bad description.

    The New description, however, astounds me, after living there and all...

    Re: Answers to Accommodation/Colleges questions at UNSW

    that depends on your of opinion of sane people.

    I'd like to say competitive not pig headed though.

    Anyway they're all good in their own way, depends what you want out of it.

    Re: Answers to Accommodation/Colleges questions at UNSW

    Do you think it would be a good idea to ring them to check if i have been accepted or just wait for the email?

    Re: Answers to Accommodation/Colleges questions at UNSW

    Frig that sucks....they wont tell me if i've been accepted or declined for this session. Hm i always thought they'd reserve places for successful rural scholarship applicants in the colleges but they apparently don't.

    "As part of the Engineering Rural Scholarships Program several on-campus student residential colleges have agreed to set aside some of their first year places for successful Engineering Rural Scholarship applicants"

    And yes...this post is meant to let off some steam.

    Re: Answers to Accommodation/Colleges questions at UNSW

    I rang up Basser, and the head person said that there is an acute shortage of rooms at the moment. After my interview (by another person since the head of Basser was on leave) I was recommended a place, except they just have not got any.

    I'm 'very high on the waiting list' atm on both TKC and NC but ... well, nothing. By the sounds of it I missed out on NC by ... one room -_-

    Re: Answers to Accommodation/Colleges questions at UNSW

    Hey guys

    Yeah sorry to be the bearer of bad news but its not very unlikely at this stage. TKC gets like 7 applicants for each spot so if you got an interview you'd be considered very lucky. Anyway hope to see you guys at Basser next year, if you had an interview with Lauren or Geoff your chances are probably pretty good, but now that UAC has been sorted out for everyone they might not have any places left. Although in my fresher year at Basser there were two people who got accepted the day O-week started. Fingers crossed.
