- Do people ever audit classes? Audit meaning just sit in to learn for the sake of learning and NOT to get a grade or go towards a degree - I don't know if that's a term used in the UK.
- At Oxford in particular, I know there are houses where students can live. However, can you also just live in a flat you've rented or bought yourself or are there rules about this?
- Do - or did - any of you know any members of the peerage at school? No folk, I'm really not looking at you on this one. Here's why: I'm interested in students who were the children of lesser members - sons or daughters or earls or viscounts, that sort of thing, where they're still members but about 276th or so in line to the throne. Shut up, I like my exaggerations. :P I'm curious as to how intrusive their status was - did you know? Were they treated differently by professors, other students, anyone? (now this could be very much due to their own personalities, I realize, so feel free to say 'yes, but that person expected it' or what have you) Did they have special arrangements, security, anything?
- Oxford vs Cambridge. How serious is it? Is it a joke or are people out for blood? What if you're going to one and your best friend goes to the other? Discuss.
Appropos to nothing, I cannot tell you how grateful I am to the internet sometimes. Oxford has websites devoted to the different programmes! Details upon details!! It does my little Hermione-heart good, I'm telling you, but some things I really need from you guys, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
So the Great Week of Stress has ended, and next week I will know... something.
Also, my vacation for my birthday has been approved, which means, in theory, I can in fact go to England
