    Same!



    Yeah I kind of feel the same way, but since I'm definitely going to Edinburgh now, I'm teasing all my friends about it. They haven't gotten any replies yet, and still have worry about their grades :P Plus I wouldn't have wanted to slack off without knowing for sure if I had place. And now I can! :woo:
    Yes me too, I'm going to get a bad grade in my chemistry class most likely and I don't even care :woo:

    Does Edinburgh really not base it that much on your grades? I'm trying to figure out what will determine me getting an offer now haha

    anyone here taken AP Calculus??

    ..just curious how hard it was..
    i have to get a 5 on the AP exam for my offer to UCL...don't think i'll be able to pull it off..
    I took AB Calc. The test is quite difficult, but its not hard to get a 5. I studied a ridiculous amount but completely messed up one free response and still got a 5. Just make sure before you take the test that you actually KNOW how to do calculus. That sounds silly, but many people in my class got 2s and 3s because they had memorized all the rules (product rule, quotient rule, l'hopital's rule) but didn't actually know how to perform calculus because they had little practice at actually manipulating the concepts. If you know how to do calculus, you'll be fine.

    I just got an email from Balliol asking me, since I'm an international student, if I could attend an interview AT oxford if I was invited (Though they made very clear that it was not actually an invitation!)

    They're raising my hopes just to probably dash them! *goes insane* !

    Did anyone else get one of these?

    I heard back from Edinburgh in 20 days with an offer but I'm not sure if that's just me.

    I heard back from Edinburgh in a little over two weeks, I think they get back to American applicants relatively quickly. Hopefully you'll hear back soon (:

    I had an offer from Edinburgh in a week but I think that's fairly unusual. I haven't heard from Aberdeen or Manchester yet (it's been about 2 and a half weeks).

    Good luck to everyone

    Well they're more similar to American universities, seems pretty obvious to me. I read an article about it somewhere in the NY Times as well.

    I thought about it, until I learned about the extra year. No thanks. I don't have the money. : P
