    well this question has been asked so many times in this thread and I am exactly in the same boat as you - applied on the14th of Ocrober and still have not heard from them any. Your decision may be published in early January or you might even have to wait until March or so. We do not know the exact dates for decision and please bear in mind that we are just speculating about them. i.e. no one here can actually give a definite answer to your original question.

    Should I be worried that I haven't received an offer for Social Anthropology (L601) yet? I've been classed as Home Status even though I have lived abroad my whole life, and my current/actual grades exceed the asking grades, and so do my predicted grades.

    I heard that they start making most offers after New Years...is this true? [I haven't read the past pages ... ]

    What makes it different is that some people have not recieved that email about consideration in Jan, so i guess those people will hear thier decisions today/early next week?

    Exactly. In the long run what matters is what offers you get and not when you get them. And it is hard enough predicting who will get what offers let alone when they will get them.

    But I would say that my guess is that the probability of getting an offer in the next few days is lower (not higher) if you applied earlier. i.e. with an early application they must have had a good look at it by now and if the application was so strong that they felt they had to make an offer straight away then there has been plenty of time for that offer to work it's self through the uni's internal beuracracy. Conversely with a later application more likely that the offer is imminent.

    Well there is a publisched deadline:
    31 March 2009 Universities and colleges should aim to have sent decisions on all applications received by 15 January.

    And I don't know about Law but with econ last year a number of unis (including LSE and Warwick) were making offers in mid and late March. So I think that the end of March is an accurate end point.
