    I applied for Engineering too, I was an early applicant and the only word I've had was an email sent about 2 weeks ago saying that they're waiting until the Janurary deadline to give all applicants a fair chance. So I wouldn't worry if you haven't heard anything
    Thank you for replying!

    I meant English when I said Eng though :^_^: I'm just a lazy typer!

    I am waiting for a reply for Law too... do you know if many law offers have been given out for Durham? What college have you applied to?
    They'll wait until after January probably. I've seen a few given out but barely any. Applied for Law on 18th September, still haven't heard anything.

    College allocation happens in February whether you've accepted the offer or not. I'm waiting until then before I decide anything :P

    As far as I know if the do college allocation before you get your offer, you'll just get your allocation at the same time as the offer. I think the vast majority of offers go out before they allocate colleges, though.

    I applied to Trevs - I'm a violinist and used to playing in three different orchestras, so a good music scene is essential for me

    Same, I wouldn't want to share... there are no colleges which are all shared though, and all but St Chad's are less than half shared, so you should be ok From what I understand the majority of people get their first choice of college, anyway.

    Actually, on that topic, I found these stats on college admissions, but I'm not convinced I'm reading them right...

    For example, for Collingwood in 2014, it shows 278 applicants expressing a preference, against 400 total places. Would you think that meant:

    278 applicants who were given offers (by their department) put the college as their preference
    or
    of the 400 admitted to the college, 278 had expressed that as their preference, but others may have preferred it and got squeezed out because of subject quotas?

    I'm leaning toward the former since that makes the numbers add up to the "total places confirmed" at the bottom... or am I missing something?

    Do you basically say that the majority of the offers are made before the beginning of February?

    I have no evidence for that, it was just an assumption - I imagine they'd want to get most offers sent before college allocation so that it's as fair as possible.

    I thought college allocation was done in batches, so if you get an offer before feb then you're allocated in the first batch, if you get if afterwards you're allocated in a later batch, so not all offers will be made before feb i think :/
