    Decision: Unsuccessful
    Your reaction: This was the least competitive of all my choices, although it still is.

    I'm still waiting for replies from Warwick and Durham.
    Do I have any chance of being accepted somewhere ?
    Did I choose unis that were too competitive ?
    Most importantly, is there something wrong with me ?

    The hardest is not to get any explanation, just a single word, 'unsuccessful'.
