    Got my two offers from Bath today.
    I screamed as loud as I did when I dinged 60 in WoW 3 years ago. n.n

    4,4,4 in Physics B, Calculus, and English Lit for both BEng and MEng. The difference is GPA. 3.3 for BEng, 3.8 for MEng.

    Woot. ^^

    Congrats
    I love that we get our decisions in a few weeks whereas in the US we generally won't find out for months.
    Does anyone know where they're for sure going?

    I honestly don't really know. The financial aid in Britain, especially for International students is really almost non-existent. I mean I'm sure there is some out there if you want to look, but mainly, we're just there to give them money. I think I read somewhere that our best bet is to see if we can get scholarships in the U.S. There ARE scholarships I think for U.S. students for some schools, but I think it'd probably be really hard to get.

    There's a thread in this forum about this called "Students from America, Finance " it hasn't been edited in a few weeks so you have to look for it but it contains a lot of good answers:yep:

    Congrats! Did you have to interview for Manchester, and if you did, what was it like? I'm curious because I almost did, but then withdrew

    This might be really silly, and I'm new to this whole forum (applying from New York), but... does UCAS inform you if you've been rejected? I heard that unlike US schools, UK unis only send word if you've been made some sort of offer...

    They do, yes. Er, as in, Track does tell you if you've been rejected.

    Thank you Nope, no interview (thankfully). I guess they just don't interview for my course or something? I don't think I will end up attending anyways unfortunately.

    What does UCL do in lieu of interviews for internationals? Some applicants have said they received a questionnaire of sorts, but they were domestic students.

    They do phone interviews. I had that same questionnaire, too--they sent me an email inviting me to a phone interview with the questionnaire attached. I filled it out and sent it back through email, and they touched on it a bit during the interview.
