    I think I can conclude that if universities ran the NHS, we would definitely die with the waiting times they'd set

    Acknowledgements truly don't matter. The only university I didn't have an acknowledgement for was Glasgow, then the come out and offer me an unconditional! Proof if there ever was that acknowledgements are a load of bull.

    can I ask when you officially sent your application off to UCAS? it might give some indication as to how long certain departments at Durham take to make a decision.
    On 25th September. But it will apparently take long to amke an official decision.

    Got a letter from Lincoln saying they're going to process my application ASAP. As my firm and insurance choices ,this will not help with my obsessive checking of Track. =/
    How can Lincoln be your firm and insurance if both courses you're applying for both ask for 300 points?

    The simply tactic of not giving the universities a choice

    I think Zakky is basically saying 'give me a place or f'off'

    Lol! I know, it is highly contagious.

    Yeah, Queen's over here in the North of Ireland have a really bad reputation for replying back. I have friends that are at Queen's this year and attended my school last year, they didn't get offers till March :/ I will like literally die of impatience! Both my intended firm and insurance are with Queen's
    So annoying, especially seeing other people who have offers from unis im applying to for my course
    Yeah i live in NI as well my friends from last year said that you could get an offer in november but your far more likely to wait till feb i feel like visiting the law department and demanding a decision

    Does anybody know how long York take to offer you a place or not?
    I have applied to York and was just wondering if anybody knew roughly the time scale of when they offer places after application? I sent my application at the beginning of october.
    Thanks for the help

    Application got sent off on the 20th and nothing yet apart from an invite to Edinburgh Web-Portal :rolleyes:
    Ah well, I'm freaking out majorly already; the nightmare count is currently on 2! I just want word from somebody! I haven't even had a welcome letter yet, although I know it's early days the Track-checking is driving me insane!

    Applying for English at:
    Edinburgh
    Kent
    Leicester
    Nottingham
    Warwick (bit of a long shot but it had to be done)

    Predicted: AAA

    So nervous! :confused::eek:

    You'd think having one offer would make us less inclined to check track obsessively and continue to freak out... I was wrong. It makes you even more inclined to check track obsessively and makes you want more. I'm officially a track whore.

    Haha that's a nice way of putting it, I too am a track whore and any notifications I get off UCAS just make me more anxious. :P

    Depends on your subject. My boyfriend has applied for engineering and has an interview already, but last year my friend didn't hear back from York until January for Psychology. Just be patient.

I've only had two acknowledments aswell, well Brunel and Southampton acknowledged me but Brunel made me an offer so I know where they stand. You're lucky you've got acknowledgements, one step closer
