    No I'm sure there will be people around after Easter, I'm just wondering how much of the forms they have processed so far because they've done 5 days of intervies so it's a lot of candidats, but who knows

    They're insane I have two offers already but am waiting on Leicester as it's my first choice... Does anyone think this is a bad idea? It's either Newcastle or Leicester for me and I heard that Newcastle's accommodation is really hard to get so I'm afraid to be left with a place that's not ideal. Argh! Leicester! :confused:
    You'll get into Newcastle accommodation, don't worry. If you "firm" it you are guarenteed a place. And even the places considered the worst halls are really good. The ones like Victoria Halls or Castle Leazes (which are usually everyones first place) are not great in reality!

    Wow thanks for your advice since I can't take a look at the accommodation I've to base it on the pictures at the site then, but will take into consideration what you've said. Thanks!

    To those who've got offers: Did you receive a letter through the post from Leicester after receiving your offer? Thanks.

    Yeah I think once the easter weekend is over, Leicester will be able to send out their offers.

    Have you got any other offers mate?

    Nope, all in on Leicester; I'll be firming it in a heartbeat if I get an offer. It's not too bad because Leicester seems like a great uni and the teaching style appeals to me the most out of all the universities I applied to. It's scary knowing this my last shot though

    Thanks.

    I dislike the idea of a year out of education, but I might have to. I'll have to see how it goes. I've tried pretty hard through this entire process so hopefully my efforts will be rewarded :|.

    hi guys,
    was hoping for some advice from everyone,
    i've decided which uni im firming (notts) and i need to apply for accomodation there asap since most people already have.. but i cant apply until i've firmed it, and i cant firm until i've heard from leicester. i'm thinking maybe i should withdraw my application from leicester? but then the interview and everything would have been a waste and i'll have that "you'll never know" feeling.. so should i just wait it out in the hope that they're going to reply within the next day or two or withdraw now?
    thanks

    I'm fairly sure you can firm any time you want. If you've decided you want to go to Notts, go ahead and firm it.

    Edit: I withdraw that statement. It appears you can't do this without cancelling the other o.0
