pre3mhjt, I agree with the best place in Hamilton! lol. Furnace is the place to be if you want to be with every other CTC'er in Hamilton. How about the chlamydia triangle?

This is starting to get very interesting! I'm assuming the Bank and the Furnace are bars/clubs? Am I right in thinking there's a large student population in Hamilton (not CTC Cadets)?

How about the chlamydia triangle?
DJ
This triangle sounds rather appealing!!!!
I think something's been lost in translation there Dave!

Although from what I've heard Hamilton has a large proportion of STDs flying around, is this just someone taking the michael or is there any truth in it?? Apparently at least 3 of you have first hand experience of this anyway

Well I don't know if it's still the case, but when I was there Hamilton was "affectionately" known as "The Chlamyditron"...

EZY.... MORE STEAMMMM!

R.E Student population, from talking to some locals it seems that the Outback is the closest thing to a student union, for you that don't know the outback, its an interesting place, forms one point of the triangle.

geez you lot are a funny bunch - STD wise you have got no more chance of getting one in Hamilton than you have in your present locations -wether here of their never heard of the phrase use a condom, and if Firecats is your 'favorite' place would stipulate the opposite of any chance of getting an STD at all.

and this master piece from your social thread
...
Someone at CTC (one of the cadets doing there IR in Bournemouth) said a lot of the locals were inbred hillbillies, oh dear . Obviously take this with a pinch of salt, I certainly hope it's not true!
would stipulate that that guy had absolutely no chance at all of worrying about an STD at all - either that or he was housed in Hamilton east were their are more that an a few loonies running around.

From my recent loan application:

Total Replayable = 96,000
For this money I'm going to get excited about as much a possible!

As far as I'm aware the bond for the course has been 60k for a fair while now, I wonder if it will remain like this in the future or will it possibly rise?
Bear in mind the interest is variable, so if interest rates rise the total repayable will increase. Technically it could get much more expensive!

After the final stage, yes they do. Just like any reputable company you join does.

Not impressed with the salary i must say......and the price of the foundation course is now $17400....was bound to happen eventually given price of fuel going up.

It's true that the first year basic isn't great, but if the allowances pan out as predicted then you can expect to add around 20,000 a year to it. The incremental salary increases actually make the final pay scale as competitive as any of the other partners for a cadet entry.
