    They've e-mailed me a bunch of times saying they won't give out offers until after the 15th Jan. I was just wondering if everyone else received this e-mail as well? Or if anyone has an rejections?

    It's my top choice and I'm really nervous!

    They emailed today to reject me from the Streatham campus and offer me a place at the Cornwall campus instead. One of the main reasons I applied to Exeter was because the Streatham campus is so nice, so I'm a little torn now : /

    The EXACT same thing has happened to me. I'm really torn too. I really wanted to actually be in Exeter, but the Cornwall campus is next to Falmouth which is apparently really small and sort of dull. I don't think I'll accept it as my course is much, much better at Streatham.

    Aye, it's very much in the middle of nowhere. I'll probably pick it as my backup - at the moment it's either Exeter-Cornwall or Swansea, and seeing as Exeter is ranked number 8 for English to Swansea's 86th...

    I haven't heard from any of my other choices yet, so when I do I'll start looking around campuses and such. Probably will accept Exeter though, it's my favourite out of my 5

    I'm not really sure where Ex stand. I've already visited and I did like the feel of the place (aside from all the ugly building work going on, but that's meant to be finished before Sept '11 so at least it'll be gone if I end up going), but since then Leeds have given me an offer and their course just looks fantastic AND there's the added bonus of being able to do an extra year in a different country (which I don't think Ex offer?). I'm visiting Leeds on Friday though, so hopefully I'll have more of an idea when I get back - if I don't like it then yeah, Ex will probably be my firm, mostly 'cause (by the look of things) Warwick have already given out their interview invites and I didn't get one, so I don't think they want me; Durham were a longshot who will never want me (else the world has gone insane) and I don't know enough about York (mostly 'cause I don't think they'll want me ) Though if one of those three goes and throws a spanner in the works/I like Leeds then I have NO IDEA!

    Annnnd, February 16th! What about you, where've you applied/thinking of firming?

    Ah, I haven't visited anywhere yet, I wanted to see if I got any offers first and then have a look around! I didn't want to get my hopes up about a particular place and then get a rejection :L I think Exeter offer it, but only if you've specifically applied for the course with a year in North America, which I didn't do.
    I haven't heard from Warwick either, but that's okay, because I wasn't really expecting to, Warwick was always going to be a bit of a long shot for me!
    I've applied to Warwick, Exeter, Leeds, Chester and Birmingham and so far have only heard from Exeter. Though I'm seriously considering firming Exeter regardless as its probably the best option, I'll just see if I love it in March when I visit!

    Sounds like a reasonable idea to me, waiting to get offers before visits..I'm doing the same Although, what I will say, is you need to be more confident in yourself girl! In that comment you so put yourself down counting Warwick as a long shot, nothing is a long-shot and I am sure you are more than capable of getting in. Esp. if you have an Exeter offer, they don't accept just anyone! Good luck with all your other offers.

    My friend goes to the Cornwall campus, and I've got an offer from there too. Bit gutting - especially when my friend with AAB got into Streatham! Anyway, I'm not bitter *cough*

    It is a bit cramped, and you wouldn't have the uni life you would in say, Cardiff or Bristol, but I guess that's obvious. They seem to make their own fun, albeit mostly with cannabis. But that's possibly just what my friend would do whatever uni she went to :lol:
