    I had to submit my writing for 7th of January and got a reply around the 11th of February, so over a month! It was so painful waiting at times! And sucks that I didn't get an offer/interview. But I still have the offer for plain Jane English!

    Hope that calms you a little! It is a bit horrible waiting :/

    I don't know any people going on the 24th! I'm a little nervous but very excited!
    Thanks, I guess there's some hope for me yet! I thought I had the whole waiting thing mastered after waiting months for KCL to get back to me but I've been obsessively checking my e-mail inbox for weeks :P

    Queens for English with Creative Writing looked for the sample writing in Dec and it had to be submitted sometime in early Jan wordjunkie, did you have an extension or did you just apply late through ucas?
    I got a conditional offer for it (ABB) and rang them and will have to interview for it in April apparently.
    Oh, and I'm going to the Open Day at the end of March

    I've heard of people getting loads of different deadlines but I think my school sent the UCAS application in the middle of December. When I was creeping through the stduentroom forums I saw people getting conditionals and then getting invited to an interview but straight after I got my conditional I emailed the woman (Carmel Beaney I think) who asked for my sample writing and she said that there wouldn't be any interview process this year. Now I'm just confused :/ I wish I could go to the open day and maybe ask someone in person but I'm in America! If it all falls through I guess I still have straight English as a back up lol

    Does anyone know if Queen's only work by grades? It says on my conditional offer that I need ABB to get into the course of my choice. Although, from my grades I received today from Jan were terrible, so it looks like I'll be coming out with AAD/ABC. Do they accept me if I have the equivalent of ABB in UCAS points? but not percisely ABB in grades?

    Who is all applying for Elms Village? I definitely have the intentions of applying as soon as they are open for applications for 2011-2012, although I've just discovered that you can't apply untill you have a £300 deposit sitting in the bank! Crazy... Don't know how I'm going to afford that.

    The most popular place for students to stay is in the holylands area beside the university, i'd look there if I were you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holyland_(Belfast)

    But the stranmillis area among others is popular too as it is very close to the university too.

    Hope this helps.
