word of warning, the kwong lee dow thing is bullshit, pretty much an excuse for UoM to have the adresses of the states top acheiving students so they in their environmental wisdom can send out UoM propaganda.

agreed

but it's still a free UoM pass, it doesnt cost us, might as well take advantage of it whilst we can

i might be going, but now it's 50/50 since the letter gave clear indication that they are expecting some absenses and it'll be covered and i wouldnt miss anything of value (if there is value at all)
i'm supposed to be on camp, so i'll probably have fun rather than be a victim of ads, oh well lol

By the sounds of it, tours of faculties, guest speakers, that kind of thing.

its actually not a free pass dude. yes, you get $2500 to travel o/s and automatic offer, BUT

monash already has funding programs fr exchange as did melbourne. you're actually staying in uni longer at melb and therfore are accruing a higher hecs debt.... your choice...

but u get a masters when u finish, which will equate to 6 yrs of HECS debt, so in fact it's saving you money

but that comes with its own disadvantages

^ that point makes absolutely no sense whatsoever...

you get a masters yes, but on what you have been taught there is no difference.

eg. melb JD still requires the same 16 (i think) essential units to be studied as in LLB for one to be admitted to practice law in victoria...

go figure...

I'll probably be going.

I also hope to do Med next year, so Melbourne Uni isn't my first preference.

Also, just wondering...

If Melbourne Uni are trying to minimise disruption to year 12 students why are they having orientation on a Friday?

So what did people think? I thought it was ok. More for the social aspect though. I would have liked it if we had seen more of the faculties and the uni in general (suppose thats for open day). Still, free food, drink bottle and pen, cant complain! Lol.
