I'm just 10 months into my PhD and ive been asked by a conference (which i submitted a paper to as well) to review a couple of papers. I wrote back to say i was just a student, as i had the impression only graduates a.k.a 'DRs' could do that. They wrote back and said it was ok i could do it. Hmm, this happens very often?

thanks chrisrolinski, i am sooo very relieved now! i am a UK citizen, so that means i can go along with my flat hunting. I lived on a 3,800 studentship for my MSc, so this should be more than enough.

I got an offer at Staffordshire starting August 7th, with a very generous studentship of 12,000 - so i've been so happy. We only ever corresponded via email, but i got a written confirmation through the post today. In it it says the 12,000 will cover both my tuition and living expenses. I'm guessing a phd tuition fee will be about 10,000 a year or there abouts - so i might need a job to eat and pay the rent? What does the EPSRC cover exactly?

Hehe - union jack shorts - let's hope the guy has a sense of humour.

I just got a conditional offer from Exeter - on recieving my 2nd reference letter. The person writing it is busy though, so i might have to ask someone else to chip in last minute (deadline next week).

Got my suit too - so preparing for my interview next week. Hopefully it'll go well - and then i'd have to decide where. Exeter or Staffordshire.

Thanks for the replies guys - i didn't realise there was another thread on this already!

@ ann - yeah, the general consensus seem to be suit. guess im gonna have to buy my first one. My MSc studentship was so easy - just an email with my CV and a 5 minutes phone interview and offer, so i've never been to an academic interview in my life.

@ stu: hmmm - now that you mention it, one condition though - can i have your title when you're done?

I have an interview next week and i have no idea what i'm expected to show up in. A suit, business casual or all the way student casual a.k.a torn jeans and smelly nike trainers? [joke]

I know i have to look and feel both smart and comfortable - and probably not come across as 'desperate'. Or is desperate a good thing? Hints? Anyone?
