Babygoose: Are you planning on accepting your offer from Shalom? What do you know about the college? I have heard that it is quieter then New or the Kensington Colleges, but beyond that (and the kosher food aspect) I am sort of clueless.
A week? Damn that sucks. Although I'm not really fussed where I go. Looks like I'm not gonna end up at shalom, I called them this afternoon, they basically told me to piss off coz I had them as second preference. LOL. I feel like an idiot. New is way more affordable to me though, so nothing lost I guess.babygoose! said:a week.....no where near long enough to decide..
I'll be straight with you, if Baxter is privately run and you're attractive wear as little as possible - that is if Baxter is like nearly every other private college on nearly every campus in Australia.catgirl said:i hv an interview for the Baxter College in the late Novemeber.Do you all know wt types of clothes should i dress and also wt type of questions they will probably ask?Thanks for your help!!
Hah, Baxter is one of the three University owned colleges... But that will still work i'm sure.neo_o said:I'll be straight with you, if Baxter is privately run and you're attractive wear as little as possible - that is if Baxter is like nearly every other private college on nearly every campus in Australia.
Shalom is probably the nicest looking college on campus, havent been inside though. It would definately be one of the academic colleges, as i know people from pretty much every college but there. Definately not for the sporting type either as they struggle to field a team in most intercollege sports.americanabroad said:Yes, I think I will be living in Shalom. I prefer a more academic environment so Shalom should be a good for fit (and hopefully the college is not totally dead)
I'm surprised you feel that way about the colleges... I'm biased as i lived at basser this year but although its not nice and new like warrane, basser does have a nice, open feel about it (plus the rooms have sinks ). The kenso colleges are getting renovations over the summer, but I'm not sure whats being done to basser.spindivision said:i've just had tours / interviews at Shalom, Basser, and Warrane, and I can say that Warrane was by far the nicest looking. Rooms were bright, college as a whole was very clean, just the overall feel of everything was excellent. Basser was quite the opposite, I found it dirty looking and overall didn't look like somewhere I would enjoy staying. Shalom was okay I guess, still nothing to compare with Warrane. I dunno if it was just me, but shalom had a kinda stale smell about it :S I got an offer for Warrane via email the very next day and they said they'll send me out all the papers and info in the mail. Will definitely be going to Warrane if I decide UNSW is for me.
hope that helps, just my personal experiences with the colleges.
Thats odd... from what i heard warrane struggles to fill up its places. A guy I know applied maybe a month and a half to a month before uni started and still got a place.Dumsum said:Warrane put me on a waiting list, I dunno if that means I got denied or not.
hm my college isn't owned by the uni - and that wouldn't go for ours... although it is run by the catholic church - so that probably has something to do with itneo_o said:I'll be straight with you, if Baxter is privately run and you're attractive wear as little as possible - that is if Baxter is like nearly every other private college on nearly every campus in Australia.
