        Yes I am. Just got the offer letter today. Need to go for my medical. Have you done yours yet? Just I don't wear glasses but i should cause i'm short sighted but not severely...should I go and get prescription glasses before i do the test? What do guys you think?

          Umm, general rule of thumb applies....if you can't see things very well, glasses have been shown to assist!

            I wear glasses for short sightedness and to be honest I probably wouldn't have passed the distance vision without them. If you feel you need them then get a pair

                  Haven't heard a thing yet. They said I need to hand my ENG1 in first then they will sort out the other details...college dates and stuff. Ordered my new glasses today, ?168!!!!! shocked.

                  ROV course would be interesting. When I was playing around with it, I almost crashed the little VideoRay at full speed into a wall. Apparently I stopped centimetres away. The guy who was watching proper panicked lol

                  Everyone else seemed alright with the ROVs though. The big 22 Tonne ones were really cool, something like TRANSFORMERS! lol

                  Keep me up-to-date. Cheers.

                    ?168 is not that bad. Wait until you get looking at prescription sunnies. Got a quote for some oakleys the other day and nearly fainted at the price

                      In general the price of Oakleys make me feel faint.

                            i've got some photos of the CS Sovereign from our class trip, didn't see any cabins though. It had a bar, small gym, nice looking dining area, fiendly captain.

                              Eyup, I have an offer on the table for a cadetship with GMS for the January 2012 intake...Just wondering what all you guys think about a potential cadetship with this company would be like...It wasn't my first choice, but they seem like a very good technical company, and the fact that they use Dynamic Positioning is abit of a perk i would say...
