Yo how unlikely is it that I will get second round offer for Halls - clayton urban community  :-\

Missed out on first round and I have heard things like very few people get second round offer (overwhelming majority of places are filled up by those who received first round offers)

I do have back up plans in case I don't get into halls but just want to know what my chances are like  :P


Unsure of when second round offers are made but you do have a chance. There's a number of people who don't end up accepting their offer for whatever reason. Depends whereabouts your name is on the list given it's a first in best dressed sort of thing afaik.

It does not matter what uni you go to do your MTeach, as long as you meet their entry requirements (which are usually on par with the guidelines linked), you should be good.

Absolutely! It was just in the weird case that if you do want to be qualified in Psychology, Monash's MTeach specifically doesn't allow one to take Psychology method units. I've tried asking around why but for some reason to people I got in contact with either couldn't or wouldn't tell me why.

I recently accepted an offer for law/engineering at Monash, I got an atar of 97. However I have changed my mind and want to do engineering/ commerce at Monash which requires 93. I moved it to my number 1 preference. My questions is do I have a good chance of getting engineering/ commerce offer? Did Monash give all their places in December, or are there still places to be offered in Jan? Would I have higher preference due to my higher ATAR? As I heard lots of people get second round offers with scores between 90-93 last year. Thanks

Both courses participated in the december offer round so technically January becomes the "2nd round" for this application cycle. Changing your preferences and putting something else at number 1 will open your options and the university will consider you for a different offer (for the preferences that are higher than the one you received an offer for). Whilst it is likely that you get an 2nd round offer (imo) It is possibly not 100% certain. That is because it is possible everyone accpeted the december offers and/or the number of 2nd round offers is not enough for your to get a place e.g. the offers goes to 97+ ATARs.

Do you recommend doing a workshop and practical back to back? I have to do a practical and workshop either back to back from 10am to 3pm or have a giant 3 hour gap in between the two. I'm wondering if anyone would be able to give some tips as to which option would be better? Personally, the 3 hour gap is more appealing to me because there is a break (and it's just during lunch time), but I also don't know what to do at uni for 3 hours apart from studying

(In reality, how much time do you get between classes if you have them back to back?)

Thanks!

Personally i would also go with the 3 hour break. Although this this depends on the person. I didnt really mind staying at uni for long hours but some people like just getting in and out in the shortest period of time.

The 3 hour break has some pros such as time to socialise, time to review/study for your second workshop, time to eat/rest

Whilst having no break reduces time spent at uni, earlier time to go home

If you have classes back to back your time inbetweeb would range between 0 and maybe an hour because 3 hour pracs/workshops can finish early.

Depends on you.

In terms of what you can do during the 3 hr break:
- meet up with group members for group projects and friends, socialise
- go do activities with a club/ society
- check out the services on campus
- get your daily exercise in
- eat lunch (pretty much a given), but you could also buy and eat lunch from the campus restaurants (which takes about 5x longer due to queues at 12-1:30pm) 
- chill and relax at one of the recreational libraries (if youíre on Clayton campus, the Manga Library and SURLY are pretty laidback)
- if you find a job/ volunteer on campus, work/ volunteer

These are all things I used to do or recommended to others. Sometimes something as simple as finding a seat to have lunch at was a 10-15 min event in itself, so 3 hrs might actually fly by pretty quickly.

Note: I only had a short commute to/from uni, which meant staying was a lot more viable as an option. So, do factor your commute into your decision. Some people also just donít like staying on campus for long, so depends on how you feel.

I personally hated long gaps in between days - was a pretty consistent feeling across both my degrees at both unis. To me, it seems extremely unnecessary if you can avoid it. The gap will be consistent each week whereas if you don't have the gap, you can then use that extra time after to go to the library/get lunch etc. on a needs basis.

I am someone who likes to keep busy so that probably justifies it. The reasons outlined by Sine above are also quite valid, depends on the person and their circumstances (e.g. if you are keen to socialise/get involved with the uni outside coursework then it may be justified).
