Has anybody tried to find out why you didn't get in to a certain uni?
I emailed York to ask and they haven't replied. Would it be worth phoning them?
I am just curious really as their rejection was very quick - I need reassurance that there isn't something dramatically wrong with my application.
So what are your experiences with this?
the first reply i got was a rejection from Bristol, and that freaked me a bit.
i had the same feelings as you, but, tbh, rationally, you'd have known if there was something seriously wrong with your application.
I'd just be interested as I know that there are some applicants who are pretty much the same as me who are still waiting for a decision.
I guess I have nothing to lose by phoning them - it will only calm my curiosity!
i got rejected by LSE....no point phoning up and asking why...they will just say that there is an increased amount of applicants this year.....etc.....
so don't expect to get a valid reason...u will only be dissapointed if u don't....
my teacher told me at school that i got rejected by oxford because 1. i have no dedication to studying law 2. i did completly **** on the written test and they felt i might have been intelligent but just blew it on the day.
Well I think I'm going to ring them next week...
do I just ring the admissions secretary for my subject?
If i didnt get in i dont really care why, its too late to change anything now
I was considering emailing Notts to find out why I didn't get in but I think it would only knock my confidence if they sent me a long list of things that were wrong with me. And if there was something wrong with my personal statment then I'd only end up kicking myself for it. If they just said "It was very competitive this year" then it would be a waste of time anyway. I guess the only think that would make me feel a bit better is if they had to make some stupid selection policy (eg rejecting those without A*A* in GCSE science or something) because the course was so competitive which I hadn't met.
