    Why, if it's your preferred choice?
    It was going to be my firm for the wrong reasons; it's fairly local and I thought the campus was pretty but apparently they're one of the last universities to give out offers. No point waiting if I have an Uncondtional from Uni of Birmingham (which was going to be my insurance anyway).

    Spanish with International Business. Was the first acknowledgement email I received out of my 5 choices.
    I sent my application on the 13th of October and have had no acknowledgement email from them but I just got an offer yesterday for English. What's you offer conditional to?

    Fair enough if you are happy with Birmingham (especially as its unconditional!) - but why not just sit back and see what happens? No rush to confirm your choices - I didn't push that button until around April time when I applied. I'd take your time - in case you have a change of heart - I have seen this happen.

    Good luck

    Hi, I'm an American, and I've received two answers so far.

    I've applied to:
    • Cambridge, King's College (nothing yet, but that's assumed lol)
    • University of Edinburgh (I interviewed with them about two weeks ago in Washington, D.C., but nothing yet)
    • King's College, London (a rejection, they thought my maths were too low...? :-( )
    • University College London (A conditional offer)

    Oops, sorry. I actually applied for different subjects at every university. They're all related, though. I also forgot to say I applied to St. Andrew's. Sorry again!

    KCL - plain Psychology
    Edinburgh - Cognitive Science
    UCL - Psychology and Language sciences
    Cambridge - Psychological and Behavioural sciences
    St. Andrew's - Psychology and Philosophy

    No problemo! It's just that here in the UK, different departments deal with applications - it's not a central decision as it is at many colleges in the US.

    Cognitive Science looks so cool btw! Did you go for the humanities one or the one based in the informatics department?

    Oh, huh! I had no idea. I assumed the admissions department was just one singular group of people. The more you know! Thanks for this helpful tidbit :-)
    And thank you! I love cognitive science. I actually just took a course in it at Johns Hopkins in July. It was fabulous. I went for the MA, btw. BSc for everyone else though, I believe.

    Hahah, thank you! I was surprised when KCL told me no and UCL told me yes, to say the least.

    Oh no, each subject department has a group of admissions tutors that look after the applications for that specifc set of courses. It's very rare that anyon outside of that group will see your application. No worries, there are a few differences between the two systems, and it can be quite confusing to say the least haha

    Oh wow! Johns Hopkins is really good, one of my cousins went there for med school - he absolutely loved it. Was the course part of a summer programme? Ah, right, that's the less cool one. (I'm a CompSci applicant, I apologise for any bias haha ).

    When did you apply? It was my fifth choice as I've applied for medicine, I was surprised cause their website stated that applicants with personal statements clearly directed at medicine/vet med/dentistry shouldn't expect to hear much for a bit. Let me know when you hear any good news!
