    I would still keep enquiring though as there are some late drop outs for various reasons and don't forget if you keep in the mind of the heads you would be able to get in 2nd session

    Re: Answers to Accommodation/Colleges questions at UNSW

    Does anyone know what the chances are of getting a position at a residential college for session 2 would be, assuming one started the applications now? Am coming up from Melbourne and would prefer this than something non‐catered for, like an apartment.

    is it true that goldstein is a more studious college than the other kensington ones?

    What are your interests?
    Name something interesting/worthwhile that you've done or had recently?
    Why do you want to go to New College?


    I did the interview 3 years ago (and failed) so I've forgotten most of it but I doubt its changed that much.

    You get preference though if you're a smart, rural kid on a scholarship. Otherwise New College is fairly competitive to get into so if you don't have the right circumstances or a high ATAR/extra-curriculars, look elsewhere.

    Isn't Creston that tiny-ass little christian girls college that has 10pm curfews and like 20-30 residents at most?

    Yeah but you dont have to be christian and the 10pm curfew is only for weekdays, weekends are about 1pm i think.. I just really liked the feel of it and if i get into med im not gonna want to be partying/going out late anyway...

    Trust me.

    When you reach university, the last thing you'll want is a curfew.

    University is about freedom to study what you like and do what you like. Its not that you say you wont be going out late at night that is such a bad thing but its more the fact you're ok with being in an insulated institution with retarded weekday curfews.

    You say this now but just wait next year when the friends you make in med (and yes, if you do get in, med kids tend to get to know each other very well) want to go out at night and you tell them you have a curfew that is not from your parents but a university college?

    Just think about it.

    Re: Answers to Accommodation/Colleges questions at UNSW

    The interview was really casual actually, just asked a few questions about school/family/predicted ATAR/ course prefences etc and then he went on to talk about what to expect and questions about whether you can cope/adapt to uni...was more like a conversation really...i thonght he was a pretty nice bloke

    Re: Answers to Accommodation/Colleges questions at UNSW

    Sorry to ask it in here, but the link to the when to apply thread wasn't working for me, for some reason. Would now be too late to apply to the Kensington Colleges? Because I've been having trouble getting hold of a school based reference. EDIT: also, I live quite a fair distance away from Sydney (say, a day's worth of driving) and probably wouldn't have an alternative re accommodation - do they give priority to people in my situation? Sorry if it seems like a silly question, haha.

    Yeah they give priority to people who live far away. And no, it's not too late. I applied a couple of weeks ago and they're still giving out offers. Their application is nasty though, I had to write out the entire application which was painful. Add to that my bad handwriting and I doubt if anyone would be able to read it. Anyway yes, apply now! They give out a lot of their offers in January, so anytime between now and then gives you a fair chance of a place.

    Re: Answers to Accommodation/Colleges questions at UNSW

    I applied for UNSWvillage and got a spot BUT I wasnt aware we would have to pay a $600 deposit fee 2 weeks from getting an offer.
    I think thats pretty slack that they do that, especially to students who may be applying to a far few Uni's and so a fair few places for accommodation.

    I agree. That and they ask us to sign a year's lease. That's like paying for about 4-5 months when you won't be using it.
