    Pretty scary hearing how far people are getting with their applications when I haven't sent mine in yet! Am going to next week though, eep.

    One question; as a mature student who finished her degree through the Open University and didn't meet her tutors much, I still ask one of them for a reference, yeah? Do I need another one/would it be helpful or does it make no difference?

    Good luck to everyone, keep trying if you've had rejections!

    I only know that some universities only accept the one reference, there wouldn't be any point in taking a second one. It may be different with undergraduate. Maybe contact your choices and see what they say?

    Ah fair enough, I'm glad you got a good feel from the uni I haven't managed to make it to my main uni open day but I'm hoping it won't make too much of a difference

    Don't worry about not visiting the uni - I never went to an open day for my uni and only visited it properly after I accepted the offer, but I absolutely love it here! You could always ask to speak to a current student to get a better inside view?

    I haven't received acknowledge from any of my choices, but I still have an interview so I wouldn't worry too much about it

    No you don't get an acknowledgement email but if they short list you (takes around 2 weeks) you get an email with a questionnaire - good luck

    We don't tend to have lectures on Wednesday afternoons so won't be spying on you lol.

    Good luck to everyone - really good to see some news start filtering through for SLT applicants.
