    Hey people,
    I am actually not US but I I have taken the SAT I (CR 590,WR 700,M700) and I would like to ask you if you are sending official reports or just inform universities through e-mails?The problem was that by the time I was sending my application, I didn`t know my score so I didn`t put it on uCAS..I just indicated that I am taking the Nov test.

    How long did it take you guys to receive a UCAS welcome letter? I intend to change one of my choices, but it's been a week and I haven't gotten my welcome letter, and thus cannot switch choices yet.

    Oh yes, Rushey Meade area, it's north of the city.

    I'm the other way, I'm from a village out past Oadby, so just south (well south east) of Leicester.

    I have applied, and been accepted (conditional offer) at Leicester, so I have a lot of thinking to do. I've also been accepted at Bristol, which is one of the best universities in the UK, but my heart keeps tugging me to put Leicester down as my firm offer. As Zouth advised me earlier on in this thread, you have to be happy where you study, and if I'm going to be happiest at Leicester then that's what I should go for. As I said, I'm going to visit each place again when I'm back home for Christmas, and maybe it'll become a bit clearer then.

    Where are you applying to?

    Its true you should be happy where you are.. hopefully your visit home will bring clarity!
    I have applied to nottingham manchester royal holloway ucl and sheffield
    i have an offer from both manchester and nottingham... i am in england this christmas as well so i have tours set up so hopefully that will help me make my decision...

    All very good universities. I really wanted to apply to Sheffield, but they didn't have a year in industry option for the subject I'm applying for, which was disappointing.

    I didn't realise that the tours were still run that late, so thanks to your heads up, I have now booked myself on tours at Bristol, Leeds and Birmingham. I don't need to see Brunel again, as in all honesty that was more a safety choice, and I obviously don't need to see Leicester again.

    It was my first choice. Right now, I'm sort of stuck in between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Glasgow has the major that I like, but Edinburgh has the prestige. I'm hoping when I visit sometime in the next few months I'll be able to know for sure which one I'd rather go to.

    I don't know where you're applying, but I found that CollegeBoard tends not to have many choices of where to send score reports to in the UK, so that may not be possible in the first place. I'd email them, tell them the scores, and offer to provide documentation if they want it.

    I sent my SAT abd AP scores without being asked, so they have them already. They also asked me to fill out a form to assess whether I was overseas status or not (probably because I have dual nationality). No school profile request yet though.

    WHen I take the ACT tomorrow, I'm having the score sent to St ANdrews ang my other unis so they have everything

    Yup, I think snail mail is the only way you can, there's no online thingy.
