Oh, you dont have to be embarassed man. This nation was all immigrants decades ago. You just came a little later. Big deal? Well then looks like you got a lot of work to do to stay in hall for all 4 years then.

Personally, I feel that it will still possible to stay in hostel and take DDP, but prolly only for the first year. Second year onwards you gotta fight for places, and thats gonna be quite hard given that you have to study a lot more than others, and you have to participate in a lot of activities (both CCA and hall ones) to "earn points". It will prolly depend on how well you manage your time and whether you can endure such a vigorous life. Good luck!

i will say it's probably going to be rather difficult ): there's bound to be a lot more applicants than places available, so those who didnt get in will be put on the waiting list. And seniors will try their best to pull those who've attended their camp & who're going for their rag in first. in other words you'll most likely be very far down on the list. unless you're very outstanding in, say, a particular sport that the hall is strong in, then there's a chance. But you may want to enquire about this properly first before you reject your place.
