Why did you choose to study at St Andrews?

Oh this is embarrassing! Well I found out about St Andrews during the time of the Royal Wedding! So I applied as a joke and didn’t think I would get in. Yet, when I got in there was this voice in the back of my head that said you need to consider this! So I came to visit and absolutely fell in love with St Andrews. I had visited Scotland about five years before and absolutely loved it, so be careful about what you joke about as it might come true!
