    will you? I don't really know where I will finally end up yet... and actually I am still not sure whether the email Maastricht sent me is an offer or not... I have emailed them and still no reply, it's driving me crazy...
    how did you get your offer? and what does your Application status in My UM portal say? also admissible?
    in addition, I got conditionally accepted by the Erasmus University Rotterdam to make it much easier for me, haha
    I got this 3 weeks ago:

    Based on the academic admission criteria and the information you have provided, we have decided that you are eligible to the programme BA International Business for the academic year 2012-13 on the condition that you meet all possible
    additional requirements before the start of your programme.
    Please note, this does not yet mean that you are registered for this programme. You will receive further information about registration from Student Services.

    and then a couple of hours ago I got this:

    Congratulations, we are already able to tell you that you belong to the top applicants of the International Business programme at SBE! This means that you will be offered a place in the International Business programme starting September 2012 on the condition that you fulfill all requirements for registration at DUO and the Maastricht University Student Services Centre. You will receive a message indicating your final ranking number around 15 June, and DUO will start sending out formal certificates of placement around 15 July. Please make sure that you have submitted your diploma and the other required documents before then.

    and yea on the UM portal it says admissible

    I got the same emails except mine said that my application is pending.
    May I ask if you already had your grades? and if you are applying from UK?

    Thanks

    37-39 is still pretty high.
    If you got predicted 41, why are you applying to Maastricht? why not like Oxford, Warwick, LSE etc?
    I'm not doing IB. I wish I had done IB.

    I missed the Oxford deadline, and got rejected by LSE 2 days ago. Maastricht is also a very good uni

    congratulations! :-)

    I only got the first email... so I wasn't sure what it really means so I emailed them back and ask

    and unfortunately they have told me that this is not and offer... I will have to wait till 15 June for my final ranking number (which I still do not know what is it good for :-D )
    but the waiting time is horrible!

    That's strange, I sent them an email asking specifically whether I will definitely be able to register for the programme if I fulfill all the requirements. The email I got back was:

    If you send us the required documents, like your a certified copy of your diploma etc, then you are eligible to enroll.

    Hopefully we have informed you sufficiently,


    Again they just HAD TO use the word "eligible" which is extremely unclear. I told them specifically that I wanted to begin looking for my accommodation and I need to know for sure whether I'm accepted or not (conditionally). I could email them again, but I have no idea how could I form my question any clearer. So I'll just keep on assuming that I'm admitted. :rolleyes:

    They told me that applicants who are processed for decentralised selection will get their ranking numbers by 15th June. After that, applicants will have to wait till 15 July. Admissions office will send answers for everyone by this date.

    By the way, they told me that I will get an email from admissions office about my chances of being admitted within next 3 weeks. I believe it's clear.

    After assessing your application to the International Business programme at SBE, we can inform you that your application is still pending. This means that we have not been able to come to a final decision yet. This does not mean that you will not get a place in the programme starting September 2012, but we will have to wait until 15 June after assessing all the applications before we can give you a definite answer on whether or not you will be offered a place in the programme. You will receive a message indicating your final ranking number around 15 June. In the meantime, please submit the documents that are required for placement at DUO and the Maastricht University Student Services Center, so that we can proceed quickly with your registration if you are accepted to the programme.

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/116816401678059/ - try this

    or go on the maastricht uni web site and they have a link somewhere under accommodation for a housing site

    I have recently visited the University and was really impressed! As there isn't a campus I was wondering how people sort out their accommodation? Is there any other students that have applied for the science programme in the same situation?
