    Here's a *waiting for news is driving me crazy!* special.

    I just got an email saying that my track had changed, but UCAS is down. WHY! With no offers thus far, you can imagine how stressed I am...

    I'm still waiting on my first choice (St Andrews). I've heard back from everywhere else but I reeeeeeeally want an offer from St Andrews; they've been my first choice since day one, it's so frustrating! :P

    Rejected by Warwick. Four rejections, no offers. What the hell was the point in wasting my time getting four As? Or straight A*s and A's at GCSE? What a colossal waste of time. :banghead:

    Meh, maybe. I'd rather reapply, provided I meet my expectations this summer.

    Well make sure you get good feedback on why you weren't successful. It doesn't look like it's academics letting you down?

    Well, there'd be no harm in trying UCAS Extra even if you get an offer (and even if you firm it!) doesnt mean you have to go there

    Well when I went it barely seemed like an open day at all, there was noone around to help and when you had no idea where anything was this was a bit of a pain. I was interested in history and when I eventually found the lecture on it the man could possibly have been the most boring person to give the talk ever - he did not sell the course to me at all, or for that matter even seem to be prepared to give a talk as he was constantly mhmmming and errring, and I kinda felt like if the head of the history department can't sell me it - who can?
    However I think I may be being slightly bias after having a really good experience at Aberdeen which totally sold me on going there! Perhaps I was too het up the way they treated the applicants compared to Edinburgh I dunno. But if they did make me an offer I think I would go to another open day just to find out if it just wasn't one bad day because last year Edinburgh was where I really wanted to go :confused:
    I see... Now I'm confused too, seeing that I got into a rather fun college in Durham... Acks! Thanks anyway!

    I thought you could only use extra if you got no offers or declined them all? :confused:

    I'm waiting for Bath and it's driving me absolutely crazy. It's the only university I've ever really considered going to and yet they're the only one who hasn't got back to me, despite getting offers from everywhere else I applied to! It's really worrying me that they're taking so long. Is anyone else in a similar situation?

    I'm in exactly the same situation except that I'm waiting on St Andrews. They've been my favourite right from the word go (I think I even preferred them to Oxford!) and a few of my friends have got offers from them which is not helping haha. I'm going a bit loopy too, checking Track an obscene amount and all that. What I find most scary is that I might have to wait until the end of March for a reply because they're well within heir timeframe for replying to offers. Aaaah! I'll have broken the refresh button on my computer by then! :P
