    Okay, so I received two emails so far stating "We are considering your application" what does this mean ?

    Does this mean I have no offers or they're just processing it so far ?

    If I do get offers will I receive the in my email or only through track ?

    I'm worried sick ! I only sent my form off last week ! I'm on the verge of tears because the university that sent me that email was the one I really wanted to go to !

    ARRRGGHHHHH SOMEONE HELP MMEEEEEE

    It's an acknowledgement. It means they got your application and are CONSIDERING it.

    Considering means that they're still looking through.
    If anything happens an email will come through, and your track will be updated.

    Don't worry.

    If you can't understand a simple sentence like that, are you sure you should be applying to university?

    HAHA! I don't know what a 'year 13' is as I live in an exotic and foreign country (Scotland). But bring 'em on

    "We are considering your application"
    We = This refers to the people who sent the letter, as a group, the University.
    Are = Suggests that whatever they are refering to is being done in the present, contemporaneously, at the moment.
    Considering = Giving thought to, analysing, thinking about.
    Your = Refers to the application belonging to you.
    Application = All the forms you filled out, the Personal Statement, the references etc, this all goes to make up your application.

    You application is being considered.
    Consideration is being given to your application.
    The thing currently being considered is your application.
    The application that is currently under consideration is the one which belongs to you.


    Hope this helps.

    Except of course it is totally untrue. They are not considering the OP's application. They are leaving in a pile unread and at some indeterminate point in the future, they will read it and consider it.
