    Just realised i asked you this question in the SSEES thread. oops. :rolleyes:

    I had an acknowledgement from them, but in the email it basically said "we have lots of well qualified applicants, so it may take some time before you hear from us" They didn't specify when i would hear from them. Did you get an acknowledgement first and then a second email telling you you wouldn't hear from them until january 15th? This is funny, as on the website it says interview day is the 12th January. confused. much.
    I had an acknowledgement to begin with, and then this:

    (Original post by UCL)
    Due to the overwhelming demand for this programme, we are operating a long-list system whereby candidates will be considered as one overall cohort once all the applications have been received on 15th January. I am pleased to be able to inform you that you have made it past the first phase of this process and your application will go through for consideration by the Admissions Tutor.

    I anticipate that you will have a decision on your application by the end of January and we will let you know via UCAS and by email.
    Perhaps they don't want to interview me / they may interview my cohort in February.
    When did you apply? I hope the quote was useful

    I sent mine on the 18th of September and all I have is an acknowledgement. Though, like someone said a few posts back, the modern languages department does seem to be going slower.

    Got this email this morning:

    "Thank you for your application for a place on one of UCL’s Undergraduate Philosophy Programmes.



    Since you have struck our Admissions Tutor as a promising applicant, we would like to invite you to a Philosophy Open Day on Wednesday 15 December. The Open Day is part of our selection process, but it is also a chance to meet us, to ask us questions, to face an intellectual challenge, and to enjoy the buzz of a philosophical encounter.



    The day starts at 1.45 pm with registration in the Philosophy Department. At 2.00 pm we go to a lecture theatre. There a member of staff will describe the BA philosophy courses and answer your queries. This will be followed by a philosophical talk with a brief discussion period, followed by a short written test on the subject of the talk. "

    Anybody else? Is this standard or a sort of interview? aaargh!!

    Congratulations!

    I got this e-mail, too! It has thrown me into a bit of a stress, as it is less than a week after my Camb interviews.

    So we shan't have individual interviews, right? It's just a written test and a discussion?

    I think so...do you know if it's true that most people invited to the open day get offers? I hope so!

    :afraid: I hate this whole process. This is the first response I've had from any uni...I'm dreading that the first thing on track will be a rejection because I don't have an insurance (already got my grades) so all the unis I've applied to are similarly competitive

    I haven't a clue, sorry. I do think rather a few are rejected pre-interview though, so I'd say 50% of the battle is won.

    I hope to have a decision for you shortly.'

    Ah right. I wonder if they'll send everyone that email. Did you receive an acknowledgement email from them a while back? I thought you get the acknowledgement when they get your application.. but that's saying they've only just received it. Odd

    :eek: What can I say...? Perhaps they're processing the applications in batches, which explains why some people got the questionnaire and some didn't?

    Yeah, I got that too. I think it's pretty standard as the admissions procedure is described in exactly those terms on the website.

    Does anyone know what time they usually start making decisions for law? I did the LNAT about a week ago if that makes a difference. Do they give out invites to open days/ interviews? Has anyone heard anything at all?

    I don't understand - you got 3 A*'s and and A but you didn't get into your universities last year? Even though you met at least 4 of your offers (5 if you did well on STEP).

    Did you not get in, or did you choose not to go to the others and reapply this year again for Cambridge because you missed a score on STEP?
    WELL I got a C in one of my further maths modules so i missed my imperial offer, did really bad in step so i missed my cambridge offer!

    (Original post by Connhk)
    What went wrong? Did you fail STEP?
    see above
