Last year I missed out on my university place by one grade and I was absolutely gutted because I was looking forward to going there so much. I took a gap year this year and applied to that university again but for a different course, improved my A-levels, have gained a lot of necessary work experience but I don't have an offer from this university.
I haven't been rejected from them, but most other people I know have heard from this uni and I haven't. I can't apply again because this gap year has been HELL as all of my friends have gone to uni , the fees will be going up next year and lets face it I'm not going to get any younger and I have been left behind and doing anything I can to get this university place.
I applied to 3 other top 10 universities and they have all given me offers, but this one hasn't. I don't want to go to any of the other universities, I desperately want to go to this one and I always have. I have the grades (I have ABC, and the uni wants ABB-BBC) and I keep re-reading my personal statement and it is good! But what if the uni rejects me? I'll be so lost as its all that's kept me going recently.
If they reject me, can I appeal? I mean they probably don't know I want to firm them I suppose and have I mucked up my chances to get in again by failing the first time to meet the grades and also changing course?
Please help. I am so nervous and lost!
I'll die if I don't get an offer Watch

You have offers while many other applicants get all rejections. Be grateful and stop whining.

I respect you for taking a gap year, all the best!!! I'm not too sure about this but could you study a similar course in another uni, then apply for transfer in your 2nd year?

Dont build minor things like this up into life or death crisies.
It's out of your hands now so don't worry about it - there's nothing you can do apart from pointlessly make your self ill by worrying.
