    I've heard back from all five of my choices now, and although I do have 4 offers, I have a gut feeling (based on visiting the unis and research on the courses and towns... long story but I went for very safe choices) that I don't want to accept them. I got an alternative course offer from the only place I would have been truly happy with, and since I really want to go to uni this September as i'm 19 now, i'm thinking about applying through Extra. I know it's not open yet, but if I rang up some unis tomorrow (i've been researching potential courses), do you think they'd be able to give me any indication of whether there will be places available for my course through Extra when it opens and what my chances are? The wait is killing me, and I don't want to make any rash decisions and decline my offers without some kind of idea. Thanks!

    What harm can it do besides a larger than otherwise phone bill?
