    Veterinary medicine come on Bristol interview pretty please

    Me too! I've heard nothing from them since the acknowledgement .. Hopefully no news is good news so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Did you get the "on hold" email they seem to have been sending out today?

    I got an email this morning (not the general acknowledgement) that said they were holding my application in consideration. Which apparently is a good thing because it means I haven't been rejected...yet. It said that was their reason if they are silent over the coming 'days or weeks'. They'd better be damn quick.
    Hey, I've applied to Bristol for Politics too and seem to have received the same acknowledgment email as you. How are you sure that the email was not just the general acknowledgement? Your post got me nervous!

    How long after your UCAS went off did you receive the acknowledgement email? I sent mine off a few days ago, should I have it by now?

    Took them about a week or so to acknowledge me once my UCAS was processed.

    I got mine 9 days after my application was processed. I'm sure it will arrive soon - good luck!

    Because I already got (several) general acknowledgement emails ('thank you for choosing Bristol blah blah blah'). This one was one that they obviously send out the selected applicants - not written for me individually - saying that there might be a wait.

    Probably a piece of 'creative writing' I did for English Literature last year, thanks to taking Lit I should be OK in that area Its more the 'leadership experience' sections I'm worried about :/
    Oh cool, I'm alright with the leadership and teamwork business, the 'show how you are interested in the way things work' seems a bit ambiguous to me though.
    I think I'm going to hand in my physics coursework but I'm a bit wary because my teacher is refusing to tell me how good it is How long is yours?

    Someone told me today that Bristol generally throw out a slew of offers and rejections around mid-November? Although on here people are saying not until January so I don't know what to believe...
    anyway no one seems to have received anything for English Lit so I'll keep my hopes up

    Long is my piece of written work? 1500 words. I'm really struggling with the leadership and show interest questions :\

    Yeah I know it could be far worse but still depressing to not have been good enough to be in first batch of interviews and worrying that competition is so high this year.
    But can't believe they have already given out rejections to people I know that rejections have to be given out but so early on!!?!

    I applied to study Politics and they've sent my an email saying they're 'holding my application for further consideration'. Has anyone else received this email?

    I know that Bristol send you some decision within a month of receiving your acknowledgement so I guess it's a just a waiting game (2 more weeks for me :rolleyes: ) I think I received that acknowledgement too but then I thought that was the one everyone got

    I've not heard anything, but Bristol tend to hand out a slew of rejections for English in Novermber. No news is good news!

    okay, two things:

    1) holy ****! congratulations! unconditional offers must feel SO GOOD...
    2) What grades did you get and when did you send off your application? I'm applying to study physics, so maths and philosophy (which by the way sounds really cool) might be close enough to give me some idea of whether i'll get an offer and when that might be.
