    Try to stay positive, you never know :hugs: What course did you apply for?
    Economics. My interview didn't go to plan so I'm pretty sure. Even if it went great I'd still think a rejection was on the way...

    I sent my application off on 13th december and received emails from 3 of the unis I applied to but nothing has changed on track since!!

    Been checking track like crazy even though I know no ones reading my application since it's the xmas holidays haha
    I'm the same although I applied the week before you.

    A lot of my friends have received offers, and it's driving me mad to look at my Track and just see blanks on all five courses!

    Haha, Same!

    Once I have one offer, I can relax a little, but I've heard nothing from my 5 uni's so far and I've just convinved myself that I'm going to get no offers! .

    Don't know what I'll do if my first reply is a rejection!

    I think that waiting for unis to get back to you is how we learn how to be patient in life... at least thats what I keep telling myself so I don't throw the computer out of the window. Why do they make us wait so, WHY?

    /rant
    This! I can't bear the wait! I went shopping in Westfields- WESTFIELDS! The most amazing shopping centre ever! And guess what I was doing in between shops? Checking track on my iPhone. :sigh: There's no hope for me! No hope! It's driving me mad seeing blanks from UEA and RHUL when they're the unis I want offers from the most. Gah. I don't like stupid Christmas and stupid bank holidays! I demand bank holiday Monday and general New Year's festivities be cancelled so someone will be sitting in the admissions office to read my application! Damn the admissions tutors actually having, like, lives and shiz! Don't they know we're slowly (or not so slowly in my case!) going mad? I have a feeling I'm going to regret wanting news so desperately from UEA when I actually get it... my pessimism is screaming that they're going to reject me. I JUST WANT TO FRIGGING KNOW!! :rant:

    And breathe... I swear these rants are weekly occurrences! Sorry guys! Feel free to rant even more than me! It's cathartic!

    Hellooo!

    The impatience has also brought me to this threat I've sent applications for medicine to Leeds, Edinburgh, Hull York, St. Georges and biochemistry for Dundee. Anybody received anything i.e. e-mails? Or anything on UCAS Track?

    Anybody got any ideas to when they would be replying?

    Thanks!

    Don't suppose anyone knows roughly when the admissions people will be returning from their holidays (and so it isn't completely pointless to check track)? I'm going mad here!

    I would assume after new years, so Tuesday 4th if you count the bank holiday?

    I know that York isn't re-opening till then as they sent an email out to all applicants.

    I checked out UEA last night and term starts on the 16th so I assume that's when the admissions people come back... seems a bit late though! all I know is they'd damn well better look at my application first then look at the people who applied on the deadline! I know it's equal consideration and all that but how can any uni give offers before the deadline if it's really the case? They have my portfolio already and they'd have to go through the rigmarole of syphoning through the applicants and asking the ones they shortlist for a portfolio and waiting for the applicants to send in their portfolios when they have mine, already waiting for an admissions officer to look at...
    /off topic
    I know UEA's term starts late Jan but I don't know about other unis!

    I only have confirmations :c The waiting's not that bad though, cause

    a) I only submitted a week before Christmas, so no one is there to look at my application anyway.

    b) All of my choices ask for portfolio innteviews, so I won't be getting offers anyway.

    ANYWAY. Doesn't make it any less stressful XD
