    Ive applied for a month now and all of my friends have got offers or rejections when they applied later than me. I guess its good that i have not been rejected from anywhere.

    I applied to Warwick, Lse, Kings, Manchester and Birmingham to study business and management or management.

    Is it normal to not get anything till after January for those unis?

    I thought Manchester were really fast with giving offers/rejections..
    Anyway, as your course is so oversubscribed (as far as I'm aware), maybe they are waiting till Jan 15th for all the applications to come in ? Plus, you want an offer not a rejecton, don't you? So be patient

    Have you not even had emails acknowledging your application? Not that they have to do this, but I'd have thought at least one would have.

    Really? Better than a few rejections?


    A lot of places have started making offers, but then a lot haven't. It could just be that you've applied only to places that are a bit slow to respond. Don't worry about it.

    Many schools and colleges have deadlines around when you would have sent your application off, so you've probably sent your UCAS off at the same time as half of the country! Manchester took a month to reply to me (and I sent mine off before you) with no acknowledgment. Just sit back and wait

    Acknowledgements don't mean anything other than "we've received your application", they aren't an indicator of whether or not you will get an offer.
