    Was officially rejected from Bristol for history last Thursday. Then, out of the blue this morning I got an email from the admissions dept saying that a huge mistake had been made and that my application had been earmarked for an unconditional back in November but had been lost in transmission so upshot is...OFFER! Thrilled!...and rather shocked...now have to decide Bristol or UCL?...Bristol or UCL?...hmmm difficult
    You are living every reject's dream. Congratulations

    Well it's hardly as if you're going to end up at a second rate university, all your unis are highly regarded and Bristol Economics is ludicrously competitive, just check the stats on their website, so well done. The only 'better' unis you could have applied to for eco are probably oxford/cambridge and LSE. UCL and Bristol are up there anyway, so don't fret
    thank you for the reply. Now I feel more secure(?). In your opinion, how is Bristol regarding nightlife, people, surroundings, and so on. And, What made you think that UCL and Bristol are "up there" im not disagreeing with you, I am curious to know how people view Bristol.

    Thank you for your comment.

    I know. I am still having to pinch myself. It has been the most incredible day...although technically I don't like to think I was 'rejected' at all. It was apparently all to do with a faulty UCAS transmission so...if any history applicants out there have been rejected don't lose all hope! Although, I admit the chances of my case happening again are incredibly slim.

    Who is firming Bristol for history?

    Bristol is well known for its student life etc. and is very student friendly, so no worries there. When I went there for an open day, it seemed quite a pleasant place to be at and I'm fortunate enough to have Bristol down as my insurance choice. UCL and Bristol simply have reputations as very good universities and both are difficult to get into. You can look them up in the world league tables, bearing in mind their questionable reliability. The differences in standing between UCL, Bristol, LSE, and Oxbridge are slim. Don't worry!

    I lived in Bristol for a year or so a few years back and I can vouch for the fact that student life completely overwhelms the city. It's a fantastic atmosphere with genuinely really friendly people and yes, a great social scene...and range of ciders! I can't wait to go back!

    You're right. It's just there's something vaguely amusing about being rude to faceless people on the internet, without consequences.

    Got another email from Bristol (Maths) this morning saying they have been "given permission to make further offers" which is good news for us

    Still, looks like it will be about another week of waiting..


    Ooh, you can see everyone's email address who they sent the message too as well, so looks like there is about 80 people-ish on the shortlist :eek:

    MAke a fake Bristol email address on Hotmail or something and tell them all they've been rejected so they withdraw and leave the field clear for you
