Endscott, who is concentrating in Classics combined with English, said yesterday the interviews was less gruelling than he had expected. "The questions were not hard at all They were about things I was doing for the most part, and about my career."

At Oxford, Endicott said, he intends to work towards a masters degree in classics or comparative philology and eventually attend a Canadian law school

Nevin, who graduated from the College of Western Ontario in 1979, could not be reached for comment yesterday.
