    Congrats everyone with offers! TSR seems to be having a bumper year this year! Are people going to be firming Notts?

    This thread did not seem that way on Fri and Sat!

    Not certain, will go look around on 2nd. Certainly a strong choice.

    Trying to decide, love Swansea but also love Notts. I ended up going to my Warwick interview and have an offer from there too as the boyfriend is waiting to hear about a job in Birmingham. Have managed to rule out St George's but need a road trip to revisit the three I think.

    Very odd position to be in.

    I got an offer! By post. Nothing on track yet...

    my track hasn't updated does this mean it's not real?

    But of course it does!

    I'm TOO SCARED TO CHECK TRACK

    I'm in the same boat - Exeter had an open day but it was the same as the interview day so I wasn't interested, I need to go to the Notts taster day to really see what's going on. Of course, hopefully SGUL will just admit how much they love me...

    In an odd position. I just got an offer through but it says I need to finish my Masters degree by 1st August apparently, but I think I have my Thesis Viva on the 11th of august.

    Is anyone else in the same position? What should I do?

    Id really appreciate it if you guys turned down your Nottingham offers, thanks in advance

    I've still not heard anything via track, and I live in France so no idea what the post situation is at home!

    I think if they give me an offer depending on what they offer me, I'll decide. If it's an offer, I'll just finish up my masters later and speak to my uni, if it's a 'only with this masters' (it's my 2nd postgrad) offer, then I'll have to defer...

    Baby steps!

    Wondering if the MSc condition is automatic for everyone. I graduated with an MSc in 2013,yet they have my offer conditional on obtaining it by 08/2015... Do they think I'm currently studying...?

    I have the same conditions and finished mine in 2012. Glad it's not just me.

    I'm definitely looking forward to the Notts taster day. Glad it's a weekend too.

    SGUL is the only one I'm sure I'm going to turn down - but it looks like on track I can't decline offers which is annoying because I want to decline that now so the place can be offered to the waiting list. Argh!

    Yeah, it's very poor form - I've seen at least 5 people who have declined or deferred their place for this year, and I'm on the waiting list with a 69/70, but I've not heard anything, so I assume they're still waiting on things back from people.

    Ah good.

    So we're in more or less the same boat. I'll probably get down to making a spreadsheet of pros and cons for Swansea and Notts

    I remember visiting Warwick and leaving thinking I'd only go there if no one else gave me an offer. What was it that swayed you so much?

    Just wanted to let you know. I went to Swansea for my BSc and absolutely loved it. It is a really nice city and you're never more than a 5 minute walk away from the beach. I'd pick Swansea if I could!

    Does it specify your MSc as a requirement or isn't it just you meet the minimum requirement (a 2:2) by August?

    Nope specifically mentions the MSc. I gave them the degree certificate at the interview though so not sure what they're cracking on about.

    I'm going to be firming as I'm currently on the waiting list at BSMS but that's undergrad. See some of you in September!
