Hi. I got my application form in in early October, but so far only two universities have responded, both making me offers.

The other 4 however, have neither offered me a place nor rejected me, so I was wondering whether anyone else is in a similar position, and whether this is good news or not!?

Cheers.

Just to add that the 4 I am awaiting a response from are Sheffield, Birningham, Southampton and Swansea.

Has anyone else heard from these universities?

Cheers.

mine went in around that time (more towards late oct actually). i've heard from 3 and haven't hear from the rest. one of the one's i'm waiting for is sheffield too, but my entry went in later cos i had to reapply there instead of leicester de montfort cos they'd cancelled my course at leicester. glad they did now, sheffield's way better!

Did you apply for a competitive course? If so, it may just take the unis quite a while to get through everyone's applications. Also I see your UCAS form was processed in early October - some unis take this as a sign that you have applied to oxbridge and wait until around mid-january to see if you withdraw your application or not (in the case that you earn a place). I would think of it as 'no new is good news' - I know quite a few students who submitted their forms around the same time but have only heard from one or two universities - the teachers say not to worry about it though, you'll hear soon enough Good luck with the rest of your application !

Do you know whether they reply immediately after they have made the decision?

i.e - I haven't been replied to because they haven't got to mine yet, or because they are waiting till the final deadline to tell everyone their decision?

It really depends on the uni - some will tell you almost straight after they've read your application/interviewed you but sometimes (normally for the more competitive courses) unis will wait until they've seen everyone's application/interviewed everyone before they make the final decisions (in order to make it as fair as possible).

LSE take absolute yonks! So I definitely wouldn't worry about not hearing from them around now - you've probably still got a while to hear back from them

I've applied for His/Pol, so it should be a farily competitively run thing. Hopefully I'll get the replies soon.

The waiting is nerve-wracking!

Ah that makes a lot of sense - quite a few of the students I know which haven't heard from quite a few unis are historians So don't worry, everyone is in the same boat - Best of luck anyway (hope there isn't too much waiting to go )!

i would go for either lse or warwick as my top choice, although id go to lse if i get an offer purely cos of the reputation, but im not that worried abt lse cos i know they take ages and im not hugely expecting to get in, im more worried abt warwick, in fact i read in an other thread that some1 had got an offer for my course from warwick the other day ... i still havent heard, does this mean its now unlikely ill get in ?

Not at all! It just depends on when they read your application I still haven't heard from two unis (UCL and Imperial) and I know plenty of people who have received offers for my course at those unis but I'm not in the slightest bit worried because I know they offer all the way up to March. Same could apply for Warwick so don't worry

cambridge - in pool
nottingham - offer
lse - not heard
warwick - not heard
essex - interview
bham - offer

You will probably find that after jan 15th when UCAS stop sending applications to the universities that most of the offers left to come will do so. This is a reason I have been told. A lot of departments are bound by the rule that they have to give all applications equal consideration up to this date and so in most cases only make a few if any offers.
