    As I have pointed out before, universities are NOT required to send out acknowledgments at all. Aberdeen do but I seem to recall waiting for months before it arrived in the post (Aberdeen aren't big on email throughout the application process). When your UCAS welcome letter arrives it will list your choices. This is essentially proof that those choices have your application.
    They sent me SOOOOOOOOOO much spam it was unreal. Every time I got an email from them I got really excited, only to open it to find out it was about their sports village or library...

    During the application cycle I seem to recall all of the important stuff coming in the post or via track.

    Forgive me for thinking that applicants wouldn't like to hear about current student's domestic complaints about email

    Yeh, but for applicants emails are from SRAS, not the medical school in particular, if I remember correctly.

    Off topic, am I the only person slightly weirded out to see King's chapel/buildings on the front page of TSR every time I log in?

    They have taken out a TSR advert, nothing clever or sinister going on

    Not to be controversial - but I definitely recieved my interview by email though my offer was by letter. Included in the email was a map and a few other information things. And there is a regular general applicants newsletter and other random info which I got by email.

    Do you mind me asking when they sent the letter? I live in a really remote area of Scotland so i'm expecting letters to take 2-3 days longer to get to me ha

    Tbh I'd expect you to get it sooner than everyone else considering how much closer you must be to Aberdeen than the rest of the UK...

    great.

    now I know one other person has received something from aberdeen, I shall presume I have been rejected if I don't get mine tomorrow. Gotta love application paranoia.

    how many people do you know that have received something from aberdeen? Do you know of any interviews? If it makes you feel any better, I still have received absolutely nothing!

    IF AND WHEN YOU GET AN INTERVIEW, OFFER OR REJECTION YOU WILL BE TOLD.

    In due course you will get an acknowledgment, there is nothing to worry about at this stage. At this rate you lot will be having nervous breakdowns by Christmas.

    I got my letter yesterday (25/10/2011) it doesnt say much, just about the application process and once all relevent checks have been done etc.. it can go forward to academic selection.
    Not exciting in the least but still... lol

    I know, I know :P I just can't help panicking :L and actually my panicking/worrying has increased now that one of my other choices (st andrews) have given out interviews already :O and that is without the ukcat scores sent from pearson vue :O so just hearing absolutely anything from any university will help me not panic so much hence why i am desperate for an acknowledgement from aberdeen :P
