    Just to reassure you slightly, I also applied on 14th Oct for Law but didn't do my LNAT until 13th Dec and heard that my app went to a college today, so you shouldn't be waiting too long to hear something! Good Luck

    I don't know if this goes here, but I got an offer from Durham. I'm still waiting on other schools, but I have a questionnn....

    If they reject you, do you get notification of that via email or a letter? Durham is pretty high as my top choice, but I want to at least see if I get in. I sent in my stuff around the beginning/middle of December and I'm international.

Sent my application on the 14 October and haven't heard a peep out of them except a letter they had recieved my application about 4 days later ... at least Warwick sent me a little xmas greeting saying that I was still under consideration ... c'mon durham!!! You're killing me here!

    No im not..

    IB Prediction was a 40.

    Ive only heard from my safety, Southampton (offer 34). I still have to hear from York, Warwick and Bristol.

    I really thought that Durham would offer me. Guess i didnt meet their standards..
    I applied to york as well.. but havn't heard from al 5 for economics.. ah well have to wait i guess.. when did you send your application off? btw well done southampton is still very good

    Was it the fact that I started my post with "Awesome!" that gave me away? I'll have to work on that. Where did you live in the US? I'm really excited to be coming to the UK. I've only been there once.
    Ah, if only it was...but, your "location" headline gives you away in even more obvious fashion! Funnily enough, I remember thinking, when I returned to the UK a few years back, that American style lingo was gaining ground here, probably due to the internet. Especially in London.

    I was in Texas most of the time(6 years), spent about 8 mo. in Washington DC as well. Which probably had a lot to do with starting this whole law business. I do miss certain things about the southern US: mainly, the outdoors culture.

    Ha. Right now, I'd say my chances of firming Durham are about 80%, even with a King's offer.

    The only other competition would be King's College London (about as different a place as you could find, but good for law, apparently), and they've been in touch with me, so they may well make me an offer.

    There would be many practical advantages to staying in London (financially and otherwise) for me, but I am ready for a change, and going to Durham would be more of an experience than King's, no doubt. It's a really nice place and certainly being interviewed at Oxford gave me a taste for the idea of studying in a more quiet, traditional place than London. The hustle and bustle of London can be distracting. Especially since I've already got friends here etc.

    Plus, I've got family ties to the north-east, and Durham is basically my home town.

    I hope not. Oh well... I'll try to make up for it by assimilating as efficiently as I possibly can when I move over there. Thanks to the likes of Top Gear and Doctor Who, I'm already saying "If I'm being honest" and "Brilliant!" without having to think about it. Still, it's easier to gain UK speech patterns than lose US ones; I still use words like "awesome" and "dude" all the time. I suppose it'll be a bit odd if I end up with a quality northern accent and still address people as "dude;" I'm going to have to work on that.
    That's so funny. It's interesting to think phrases like that (which I take for granted) sound distinctly "British". You'll have a field day (a good time...) over here with language; there are so many regional variations, not to mention differences caused by upbringing ("public school" accent, basically RP). The Americanisms are mainly taken on by the younger generation. Some of them say "awesome" all the time.

    By the way, the majority of students at Durham probably won't have a Northern accent. A lot of southerners go there. In addition, if you're privately educated, often that takes some of the regional accent out of you. In fact, I remember as a kid in Durham (I'm a northerner, originally...) noticing the different accents in Durham, among the students. And yes, you do get some interesting combinations.

    I applied early October and I got my offer just before Christmas - there was a fee status hoop I had to jump through which I think slowed down the application process.
    Have you heard about your actual offer yet and you're just waiting to hear from Hatfield or have you not heard about anything?
    I applied for Anthropology, what about you?

    Good luck on your offer/hatfield!
    ohh i see... well my AES status just changed to 'received by a college' but havent been given an offer yet from UCAS or anything about hatfield. But im just soo happy it got received by college! Except i dont actually know if that means im definitely guaranteed an offer? I applied for Politics and Sociology

    What college have u applied for?

    Quick question if a college has received your application does it mean you're successful? Or how likely is it?

    Very likely at this early stage . . . and it shouldn't be long before UCAS updates and makes it official for you. Congratulations

    I've got a letter in the post today saying I've received an offer. Haven't had confirmation from UCAS though. Did you guys apply for general engineering or did you specify? My personal statement was geared towards mechanical and my AES says "H300 Mechanical Engineering" although am I right in think you don't have to specialise until your 3rd year? All the best of luck with your exams too!!
