    has anybody received offers for Law yet?
    I've applied for Law with French at Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield... and Oxford. I know somebody who received an offer from Liverpool for law within few days of sending his offer yet i haven't even received an acknowledgement email and sent it in before him. I was surprised a law department handed out offers so quickly, his PS must have been really good.
    Regardless of which course you've applied for, has anybody heard back or got a generic email from any of these unis yet? Nervous
    I'm not applying for law (i'm applying for biological sciences) but i got an acknowledgement email from Bristol roughly 2 days after my application was sent and then a surprisingly low offer the same day (BBB). I'm applying to different uni's though compared to your other 4 so i'm no help there sorry

    Thank God, mines more like a 98%/2% split, it's so hard having enough space when you're talking about more than one subject
    At all the Oxbridge talks I've gone to I think they aren't really fussed as long as it's not more than 20% devoted to other things. My friend spoke to an admissions tutor at Edinburgh and apparently they said they literally don't care about any extra things, just enough so they can see you have a life

    Applied for German with International Politics at Liverpool last Tuesday, got an acknowledgement email on Thursday followed up by an offer a few hours later. My other choices are Lancaster, Exeter, Birmingham and Durham. Got immediate acknowledgements from Lancaster and Exeter, acknowledgement from Birmingham yesterday but nothing from Durham yet so it just depends on the uni I think.

    They will be waiting for LNAT scores and/or in-house essay marking to happen. Don't expect to hear anything for the next couple of weeks, then there should be a steady flow of offers coming through.

    Neither will heaps of other people so don't panic!

    Aim at getting it done over half-term, final tweaks (and rethinking Unis/courses) over the following few weeks, then submitting it before Christmas. That's a) normal and b) totally okay.

    Hopefully I'll be sending mine off on Wednesday :woo:

    I would send it off earlier, but my head of sixth form needs to give it the OK, and I'm on work experience Monday and Tuesday so I have to wait...

    Tbh my personal statement is 100% academic only focusing on the course (although I do talk about future careers etc but that's still related to the course). My referee talked about my extracurricular activities in my reference so that I didn't have to waste precious characters in my ps
    Really suggest that if you can influence easily your tutor, I got to read mine and give feedback on it, which was really nice.

    For ppl who haven't yet done their ps or are half way through it, just write one complete draft and don't worry too much about the language at that point, once you have a base it's so much easier to go and edit that to make it perfect. This tip honestly helped me so much and hope it helps others

    Good luck to everybody
