    Haha I am really happy, yes! .. And I'm sorry, but I'll stick to my choices until I have all my decisions - I am sure that they will pass on the offer for year abroad if I decline it! After all, they only have 20 places

    Firstly, to clarify, I haven't actually been through the whole process yet - I'm on a post-uni gap year so I didn't apply for graduate schemes in the final year as people usually do. At the moment, I don't regret not getting summer internships because I had a lot of fun during those summers instead. Maybe if I don't find a job by the end of the year then I might then regret it. However I still have quite a few active applications and will probably make a few more as well in the coming weeks. Regarding Bath - no I wouldn't put it above others just because it has the year-long internship, but that would no doubt be very useful when applying for jobs. Finally, I wouldn't know what is the most important thing right now. One of the main benefits of a second-year internship is that you could get an offer for the graduate scheme before your final year and so not have to bother with all this at the same time as revising for final exams.
    Thnx for the response, I would rep you but for some reason I can't.

    you have an unconditional for Oxford? why wouldn't you withdraw your application from all the other unis and just firm Oxford? Unless you'd rather go to UCL or LSE instead of Oxford??

    I agree with this guy. You have all the right to keep your applications in the places you have sent them to, but it would be better for others if you took your application out of places that you definitely aren't going to go to as it allows other people who might take that offer to get one.
    If I get an unconditional (I am post A2) from LSE/Cam then I will most likely be withdrawing my app from other places to give chances to those that might take the offer.

    Withdrawing the application will give no benefits to the offer holder at all. What if the applicant has yet to fully make up their minds about where they would like to study? While most people have a firm idea of where they want to go, surely it is better to have more options in the event that they wish to change choices.

    As the person above suggested, a simple cost-benefit analysis from his perspective would show that he has little or next to no benefit from withdrawing his application even if it does mean AN OVERALL WEIGHT WELFARE LOSS (for everyone else). Gosh, I love Economics...

    If he hasn't made up his mind then by all means he should keep his applications alive. However, I am pretty sure that he won't reject Oxford for anywhere else especially he said it was the main reason for applying to British uni's.
    If he withdraws it after getting an offer I guess that's fine as long as it gives the uni enough time to re-make that offer to other people.
    All I am saying is that If you have an uncon offer from oxbridge/lse then there is little point in keeping all your other applications in as it could be taking up someone else's space who might actually accept an offer from there.

    Although the social benefits would be greater while the private costs would be at a minimum But yea why should he do that, he is definetely going to Oxford I suppose (I know him ) but when I were in his position I would want to see what other choices send me offers/rejections. And one place really doesn't make much of a difference I suppose.

    I know where you're coming from in just trying to see it from his point of view

    Definitely don't withdraw from those universities, why would you! Enjoy seeing all the other offers roll in behind Oxford and enjoy the satisfaction of foregoing offers from the top 5 to accept the best

    Has anyone heard from UCL yet? I know they have started giving rejections and offers out to medics, but has anyone heard anything for Economics?

    There have been no UCL offers as far as we're aware.
