    Well done to everyone who now has offers! :woo: it's the best feeling ever
    But I'm still waiting on 4 out of 5!

    And try and relax everybody, we've got a few months left yet (for most of us) I'm sorry to say!

    In case anyone is interested, I know someone who has an offer at Nottingham for Politics (combined with French I think?), there is an offer at Keele for Politics and IR and an offer at Keele for maths and psychology, then there are some Sheffields I think, a Manchester and I've got a Brum

    Woke up this morning with a horrible feeling I'd get a rejection today. Just then I nearly had a heart attack when I found I'd got an email from UEA but it was a request for a creative writing sample. :eek3: I still haven't calmed down!

    And I have only 2-3 weeks to send it off. I feel as if I'm asking for a rejection by sending this mediocre story I wrote last month but I don't have the time to come up with anything better...

    I always knew the first rejection would come from the place I really wanted to go to.

    Ah well at least there's someone in the same boat as me then lol. How much extra reading are you doing btw?
    Erm, not enough is the short answer to that! The odd thing for fun when I get time, rather than power reading through lots of texts for Oxford (that can be done in the week before interview, if I get one ). And I haven't started teaching myself Russian yet either, which is probably even more of a concern :p:
    How about you? Oh, and did you see the thread in the Oxford forum about the record number of applicants? :mad:

    Well done on your offer :woo: Especially from Sheffield, I'm jealous! At least I know they like us retakers now xD

    At the moment though, waiting for my referee to send my application off at all is driving me crazy, nevermind waiting for actual replies...
