Got a letter today saying something along the lines of
"Thank you for turning up....blah blah blah....as you know, UCAS takes ages to update (cos it's crap)...so you won't know anything officially til then...blah blah blah...
BUT, unofficially, I'm happy to tell you we've recommended that the University offer you a place on the SS course...blah blah blah...though we can't guarantee this 100% until you get it on UCAS due to spaces on the course...blah blah blah"
Paraphrased slightly as I don't have the letter and am at work...but anyways.
Weight off my shoulders condsidering I thought the interview wasn't that great (letter even said 'We were impressed by your interview...etc', which although is the generic letter, is still nice!)
Anyone else heard anything yet?

Danke, I'm still waiting for it to come through on track and be official! And still haven't heard from Edinburgh, so what I'm gonna do is still v. much up in the air...

Wow, congratulations Meg_Lili!! That was fast! Must feel good. Did you talk to them about the chance of doing some Finnish during your interview?
... I didn't get any post today
I did, and yeah, pretty much what Hylean said. My interviewer also said they were trying to pull the Scand Studies dept and the Finnish Guy (I'm assuming that she meant Dr. TH) closer together so they can collaborate more etc. Does make keeping up my Italian a bit more difficult, but I'm sure I'd be able to find a way.
The interviewer lady seemed quite excited when I mentioned seeing Åbo Akademi on the YA universities list on the website and we talked about it quite a bit. Apparantly there's only 1 person out there this year, and she hasn't heard from them, but assumes they're enjoying it, and said that normally there isn't much competition for the YA unis, and she can only remember once - when a virtually a whole class decided they wanted to go to Uppsala - when someone didn't get what they wanted. Though she said if 5 people all decided they wanted to go to Åbo, there might be some problems!
Meh, tis the Royal Mail for you, since when have they delivered stuff when expected?! I'm sure you'll have a similar letter dropping through your letterbox soon! (Also, my letter was from (though signed by someone else) my interviewer, so different interviewers might take longer I guess, who did your interview?)
