    Hey!
    I'm really freaking out at this point. I've sent my UCAS application on October 10th ( Cambridge, Warwick, St. Andrews, UCL and Warwick) and haven't received any offers yet. I applied for economics and I really thought I had a good chance of getting in ( SAT 2180, SAT Physics 800, SAT Math level 2 760 and an average of 10/10 in school). I also have many EC activities and work experience. Could my PS really have been that bad? Do you think I still have any chance of getting offers?

    Don't worry, it will take a while.
    I think it would take longer for you due to being an international applicant without A levels etc.
    The offers will come eventually, don't worry, it didn't mean your PS is bad

    So Bristol sent me an email a few weeks ago saying that they are still considering my application. However there are people on here that already have offers for my course. Does that mean i am in the "if there are no other good candidates we will pick one from this" pile ??? :/

    I wouldn't think about it like that! Many universities take a gathered-field approach to dishing out offers. The people on here will be the exception. Don't worry :-)
