    Just got rejected from Oxford, but that's not my dillemma. A part of me wants to just put Manchester as my firm and Cardiff as my insurance and be done with it. But maybe I should wait for Edinburgh. I mean, atm I like Cardiff more than Edinburgh, but I should maybe wait until I go to open days? Maybe I should be looking at alternative unis (even if it's just for the craic): my original method of finding courses (looking through UCAS site) nearly meant I missed my Manchester course, so you never know!
    I would say wait.
    You got an offer for Spanish at Cardiff...I envy you. We've both applied for language courses at Edinburgh and Cardiff...can I ask why you like Cardiff more at the moment? Seems like a waste not to wait until open days...

    Edit: What a *****, forgot to say - sorry to hear about Oxford

    I know how you feel I would love an offer from lampeter as a birthday/ christmas present.

    Uhm... I'm really sorry for asking (maybe it doesn't sound as stupid when you know I'm not from the UK), but where's Lampeter :o: I hope you get an offer soon though and have a happy birthday!

    If they don't reply by, let's say, January 7th, I'll ring them. Until then, happy holidays to everyone :p: (except to Queen's, of course - they can have happy holidays when they give me an offer )
    Yeah, you shouldn't be too impatient, it's probably an inconvenient time of the year to email them :yep:

    Nah, never worry about it.

    I don't know, maybe it's because Cardiff've actually got back to me lol. It took me around 20 days to get an offer from Cardiff, so don't worry they get back pretty sharpish! I hear so many stories at school about Edinburgh rejecting non-Scottish people for really silly reasons, and I've been very charmed by Cardiff. Still, you're right, should maybe wait until open days (or to see whether I get an offer from Ed. at all! How presumptuous of me!).

    Might still have a look around other unis though: can just replace my Queen's offer with somewhere else, and if not it's between Edinburgh and Cardiff for insurance!

    It's my birthday...no offers. Damn. Although in the UK there's still some hours of my birthday to go :rolleyes:

    You have a birthday soon too?
    Yes on the 28th and Happy Birthday. I think it's just wishful thinking. No more offers till January.

    Thanks I wouldn't worry Lampeter's in wales and most Uk students have never heard of it either. It's only got 1000 student's so quite small. but if they offer me an unconditional it will be my first choice.

    Well if I don't hear from Cardiff or Sheffield in a couple of weeks (both of whom seem to be pretty quick), I'm going to start worrying that my application isn't very strong.

    I've heard talk about this Edinburgh/non-Scottish thing; to be honest it sounds like ridiculous rumour to me and nothing more. What have you heard from others, specifically?

    Regardless - do try and wait. We're human, which means sometimes what we think is good for us and what is actually good for us are miles apart :yes:

    I don't know if it's true, but my French teacher told me that hardly anyone from my school gets into Edinburgh, and that about three years ago one girl got rejected because they thought her email address was stupid! Not like my teacher to tell lies, but it seems a bit unlikely. Still, just remembered I can take up Russian in first year at Ed., so I might begin to lean towards that again!

    True, I must try to be patient!
