    I emailed them 4 hours ago asking them what time frame they're working on, and they've sent me an "offer letter" saying that they intend to make me an offer and the conditions should appear on Track soon! YAY!

    Just got an offer letter from Bristol, now waiting for track to update to see what the offer actually is.
    Unfortunately I can't go to the open day on account of prior plans made by my college.

    Nope, not heard anything yet May I ask what you put in the email?

    This is the main body of the email:

    "Thank you for keeping me updated on the progression of my application to study Mathematics at the University of Bristol. It's great to know that you are considering each one of us candidates carefully throughout the different stages of the decision-making process.

    I understand that these aren't easy decisions to make, and that you must be under great pressure from students and superiors alike. However, it would be very helpful to know if it will take a few more weeks, or if a decision about my application is imminent. Bristol has been my top choice from the beginning, and I would appreciate if you could let me know more about the time frame you are working on."


    To be honest, I think they'd already made a decision about me and were just waiting to be done with everyone else's, so they could put it on Track. Or it was me saying 'you are my top choice' that did the trick! At least what I said was true

    I'm sure you'll hear from them soon, let me know xx

    Aha thank you, I did spend quite a lot of time making sure it didn't sound too rude/needy, but that it still conveyed my concern and interest about their decision.

    No - Claire Lowe. I've gotten my emails from her address, even though the one about how they had permission to make more offers was 'signed' by Richard Walters. I don't think it really makes a difference, she's the coordinator and he's the main manager, but they work in the same room!

    By the way, I see you haven't applied for Bristol, why are you interested? I don't mean to be rude at all - just curious

    Oh, and A*A*A*1 from Cambridge - congratulations, but ouch!!!
