    Anyone going to the applicant day a week tomorrow?


    I'm now leaning towards firming my Edinburgh unconditional but HW has the last chance to impress me.

    I got a message from a guy how's working at HW and she told that the information I got about getting the replies tomorrow was wrong. According to him it might take them another 3 weeks to make up their mind. I have no idea why they're doing that -I'm sure there actually is a good reason- but by doing that they are honestly losing many students who rather accept their second chioce offers that hope that there's something good coming from HW. Dissapointed, reallt dissapointed.

    hello everybody! :] i'm from Bulgaria. i've sent my application on 28th october and still no answer.. i've talked with them on monday and was told that an answer in ucas track will be available after week or two.. so i do hope that by the end of the next week there'll be all decision made. i applied for MA Economics [ L 100 ]. As i'm reading some posts here i see many people will left heriot-watt because of the awful waiting and do their firm & insurance is that right ? a one more question - are there generally a huge number of applicants to hariot watt with Economics. thanks in advance and wish luck to everyone : ]

    The 31st was the first deadline which is given to universities, but they don't have to make up their mind by that time, UCAS allows them to change the application status until 10th of May or smth like that. So, as far as I know, the 31st is the suggested date when all of the applicants should have all of their offers and can start visiting the unis and making up their mind about where they want to go and study.

    Actually 31st march is the recommendatory term for respond. The real final term is on 10th may. but as i said in my previous post i believe that by the end of the next week we should have the decisions.

    Yes, they do have a good Economics department. They have a strong economics society either [ a lot of meetings with people from industry, workshops, famous lecturers from world top unis etc..] and very good links with firms and industry. The university at all is doing a lot of research with is definitely a good point too.

    Wow... unsuccessful. This was unexpected. I think Edinburgh brings absolutely no luck for me. The city's two universities are the only ones that rejected me.
