    Got rejected from Leeds - there explanation
    "Your personal statement does not demonstrate the full range of attributes required for this course"
    I was expecting it but I still feel annoyed that they never even gave me a shot at an interview. Hey ho, everything happens for a reason.

    Yeah that's true!
    To be honest, every course looks for something different and Manchester met answered so quickly I've obviously got what they want so while I'm a bit annoyed, it's not the end of the world.

    Yeah exactly! Every uni that met me offered me a place...yet I got three rejections purely from my application. So I'm just thinking that it's completely dependant on the individual who's reviewing applications in admissions! Good luck at Manc met!!

    I just got rejected from Leeds as well, I will send them an email to get an explanation too. I think the long wait gave it away a bit!

    Same! Never thought of it that way!!
    Thank you, I'm beginning to feel excited for going to Manchester met - at least I'd decided that was what I was going to do before I got the rejection, otherwise I would have been a sobbing mess haha

    Sorry about Leeds - but you can now move forward and firm your choices and start to plan!

    Its a weird trend I noticed last year that very few get accepted at both MMU and Leeds - looks like it may be continuing this year - its strange how they all seem to be looking at applications differently!

    Come to MMU where you are wanted lol and bugger Leeds

    Don't take Leeds too personal - its a hellish rollercoaster ride this applications business.

    You will have to tell me your real first name sometime - cant be going into lectures next year shouting Higlet!

    I think it's safe to assume that I am always the last to hear, so no, nothing. I'm not expecting anything until the end of March now.

    Thank you I really want my mmu offer! So as someone said before if people apply to mmu and Leeds, they get into one or the other. In that case I wouldn't mind a rejection from leeds haha!

    It was me that said about MMU/Leeds lol - it seemed that way to me last year but maybe I was looking for patterns that didn't exist! (Leeds did turn me down after all so maybe my views are tainted)

    Just hope you get some good news soon
