    Hi Everyone

    Which University has given you the nicest response to your UCAS application?

    University of Sheffield were very nice to me every time I've rung up / emailed!

    I'm just curious, who were nicest to you?

    It was probably LSE for me. I remember their acknowledgement email being nice and friendly. Sheffield have been nice as well. Oxford's correspondence is quite bland, but they made up for it by being nice at interview haha.

    Lots of little fancy ones with different meaty things and salady things in, and they had a vegetarian platter too which made me quite happy Best of all, they had more chocolate biscuits than boring plain ones...

    The admissions staff at UEA were very friendly. From sending off my application to getting my A-level results I received lots of emails from them, which was nice as it made me feel like they really wanted to find out what I thought about the admissions process: lots of surveys with the opportunity to win stuff, and they even added me to the faculty newsletter mailing list so I could see what was going on in the department. It was only ever my insurance and I got the grades for my firm in the end, but in a way I would have liked to go there because the course was good and everyone seemed so nice.
