    hmmm... to be fair newcastle uni is not all that..... but nor is it lame..... its respected erm for law its a good law school..... your subjects in my view, so please dont go mad, are not the most traditional academic and the likes of newcastle do like the 'traditional' subjects. saying that your grades a perfect, along with a good personal statement and reccomendations you should have a FAIR chance of getting an offer.

    sometimes with certain applicatants or just the unis themselves, they like to take time. keep a balanced attitude towards the chances of getting accepted. and again time.... well time will tell.



    peace out

    You did amazingly well to get on UEA's Creative Writing Course. I also applied for Creative Writing. I was told that my sample of written work wasn't up to their standard, which I suppose is perfectly fair.

    Thank you for saying that; me and you both. Best of luck in the coming months; I hope that you meet your offer, which I have no doubt that you will. :five:
    You're so kind, thank you! Chuck me a message on my page when you get an offer! You will!

    I feel the same.

    But I've heard instances where the guys got an offer letter from the university days before thier UCAS track was updated, so you never know.
    I got letters from Hull and Lancaster before they were updated on track, if that helps.

    Hello,

    I am going to freak out. I applied for computer science and I haven't received any offers yet from the unversities..

    Only thing I got was application confirmation from 2 uni's and visit invitation. Thats all.

    All my friends have recieved unconditional offers/ interview from some universities and I have NONE...NOTHING at ALL.. All day I check email, and no... there is nothing there! NONE...

    I am going to freak out.. Or do I need to wait still??
    What uni's are you applying for?

    Right, ive applied to Coventry, Nottingham, Oxford Brookes and both B'ham Unis to do Adult Nursing course. I submitted my application at around 16th of December and ive had no feedback what so ever from these unis yet. and its been 6 weeks now some of my friends who sent their application some days later than mine already had replies and interviews sorted soon.

    My predicted grades are a grade higher than the grade requirement for the course i wanna do, and my personal statement is really good according to the teachers and other people that read it. soo yeah, was just wondering how long does it normally take to get an offer or an interview? does it differ in the unis? or the course your taking?

    I've got three offers so far, but all I want to hear from is Leeds! UEA are a bit strange, I applied for Lit and i've definetly had the least correspondance with them. Hull have been great, really quick to reply and amazingly helpful - wish I could say the same of Manchester and Sheffield though. Guess i'm just going to have to keep my fingers crossed and wait for Leeds and UEA to get back to me though

    mine was sent on sept 10th, so, not too long after yours still waiting for my top choice to get back to me too.
    i have a friend who applied in early dec and she's already heard back from all of her unis. not fair.

    i feel bad for the med applicants though, cos it seems as if they have the longest wait.

    I just received one so far, which was a rejection and I received it today. Just don't worry too much. Try to enjoy life until your first reply. That's what I did and I actually managed to enjoy life very well, just that it got me sad today with me first rejection. But think of it: No reply yet is still better than a rejection.

    yeah i suppose you all are right, but yeah. Im just kinda jealous seeing everyone around me getting replies and interviews and that so yeah.
    but to be honest, im only looking forward to one uni to get back to me, as thats like my one and only choice that i really want so yeah (brookes). once i get a reply from that im guessing it be pretty contented with whatever i get for the rest
