Is anyone else heading over to Hertford College for the 2011-2012 year? I'll be doing the Spring two terms. Just wanted to meet some people ahead of time :]

I'm taking Irish History.  The tutor's already given me a background reading list and the syllabus.  And the background reading books are all really huge and expensive and I don't want to buy them, so I'm going to try to read one or two before I leave school on Sunday.  That will be fun though!  You'll have a couple days to explore London on your own.  Are you just finding out what hotel we're staying at ahead of time and going there early?

Yes you have the correct one, haha!  Does that mean we're in the same tutorial, as in taking it together, or we're both just taking it and we'll have separate tutes?  I wasn't sure.  I'm also currently trying to email my tutors to introduce myself and it's kind of awkward.  I am taking the group flight!  I think I actually arrive at JFK at like 1:30 though, so I'll have to find something to do.  Are you taking the group flight?  What's your other tutorial this term?

I did much the same with my app!  I applied like a year in advance. It was quite a process, but totally worth it.  The Oxford and IFSA people are SO NICE. You will have such a wonderful time. Hertford was my first choice, and I chose it because I did want that 'old world' feel. I actually don't remember if I wrote a supplemental essay, but it sounds like a good idea!  Don't be concerned, really just showcase what you love studying and why.  Hertford is known as the 'friendly' college, and people are really interested in getting to know you there and making sure you have a great time. I adjusted very well to the tutorial system. It is a lot more intimidating on paper than in real life. Do you know how it works? I don't want to bore you if you do already, so let me know.  My primary tutor was very kind and we built up a great relationship; I looked forward to talking about my work with him because I knew he would be critical but supportive. I also enjoyed my secondary, but since it was only four meetings, I did not get to know that tutor as well. However, both tutors were interested in having me thrive, so as long as you make it clear you're willing to work hard, you will do very well!  You sound like a dedicated student; don't worry about adapting.

I took Arthurian Legend and Shakespeare, and loved both tutorials. Do you have a subject area you really like in your English major?  I'm really interested in medieval lit, but of course you can really study anything. As for your application, don't stress too much, and also be prepared to wait kind of a while for them to get back to you. I know this does not sound at all fun, but the English definitely operate on a different time-table than us Americans!  This is kind of long, but what else would you like to know?

My email is if that's easier.
