    Hi,

    I just received a letter in the post saying that they are delaying their response to my application until they receive more offers. I applied back in October.

    Has anyone got an offer for geo at Bristol? Has anyone else received this letter? I have a feeling I must be a borderline candidate if they're putting me on hold.
    Everyone else at my school who applied to Bristol (albeit different courses) applied after me and have their replies

    This seems to be fairly normal for the Bristol Geography department. Some will get a yes or no straightaway but the majority have to wait until after the January deadline. Even then they quite often sit on decisions until March. Be patient and good luck.

    I got that letter too. I was wondering what everyone else's AS grades were. I got AAAB (predicted A*AA - A* in geography) and I'm still waiting for a reply. Bristol (if I got an offer) would be my first choice so I'm hoping to hear from them very soon. Good luck everyone!
