    I've applied to Oxford and Bristol too and not got an offer yet. However, I have got an offer from Birmingham... I sent my application off on the 9th of October and only got my Birmingham offer last Friday. Also I have a friend applying for Economics at Nottingham and he's not heard anything back yet (he had a similar application date to me)
    was your bham offer unconditional?

    What a day!

    Got an invitation to the UCL open day thing, and I got an AAB offer from Warwick! (I have an A* in maths already)

    So excited

    Today was supposed to be the deadline for the 5 weeks email from LSE, but instead I've got two others! Just LSE and Cambridge to go now!
    Did you get the Warwick offer for straight economics?

    Amazing good luck I don't know how bham can discriminate you based on whether you put it as your firm or insurance, it seems unfair to me. I would have loved to put it as insurance. UCAS shouldn't allow this ahaha

    Do you know when the other open days are and when the invitations for them will be handed out?
    There's 200 places for Economics at UCL though guessing they'll give 300+ offers or more due to some taking other universities.
    I would personally take UCL over Oxford, wish there was a way of hinting this to the Econ tutors haha.

    Out of interest why would you take UCL over Oxford, is London swinging it for you, i don't know anyone who would do that

    Congrats! ^^

    Looking at the transport though, it's going to take 3 hours+ and cost me £70.00 to get there so it looks like I'll have to get there on Sunday and stay the night. :/

    It's some sort of scheme to persuade people to pick them over other A*AA universities I guess...

    Thanks!



    Yea, pure economics. My interview date is on the 9th December so I don't think it's the same for everyone.

    By the way, I also just got an offer from Warwick! :P This is a good day!
    Kings does pure economics?!

    I think you misunderstood Epic Flawless. He was referring to King's College, Cambridge rather than the University in London.

    struggling to decide which to firm over UCL or Bath ( assuming UCL give me an offer ). Bath appeals to me much more, the campus university idea is fantastic, great location, placement year at a top financial firm etc. But... UCL has a much better ratio of males:females. only 33% female at Bath, and 41% female at UCL studying Economics

    A lot of people would tell you to firm UCL due to the higher prestige but at the end of the day, there's no point going somewhere you may not even enjoy just because of prestige.
    Go where you think you'll be happier, thats all the advice I can give you.

    To be honest though, UCL is a lot more prestigious than Bath, is in a decent location where you can get work experience. But truly if you feel like you'd be better at Bath then pick Bath.
