    65%. Problem is the 10% deposit..and I still haven't heard from Cambridge, UCL or Imperial

    What can I do about this, besides email the other uni's and ask about my application..?

    When is the deadline to reply and to pay?

    just wait for three more weeks. If you still haven't heard from the other unis, contact them and ask for an extension + contact the other unis and ask how it's going. I do think though that you will have heard by then, at least from UCL, they tend to be fairly fast.

    One month? and we have also Christmas holidays which are close.

    Do you think that you have chances to have a place at Imperial/Cambridge?

    Yeah. The only worry is Christmas holidays etc. won't admissions offices shut or slow down for the holiday period?

    Don't really like the course at Imperial that much (but I do think I have a chance). I do feel I have a decent chance for ucl/cambridge..my grades this year are even higher than this year (so far) but I can't show the uni's that yet unfortunately.

    I understand .. it is very difficult to decide .. make a decision based on the modules , fees, location , name.. if you feel that you have a lot of chances to have a place in other universities then reject its offer!!

    what did you apply at imperial?

    Worst case..I'll pay the deposit, get a better offer and lose my deposit I guess..

    Transport with Business Management. It's an area I like, but perhaps a little too narrow for me, right now.

    Congrats, Akkuz!

    When I needed a decision ASAP, UCL responded with an offer within a day; it really impressed me, to be honest.

    I wouldn't know about Cambridge and Imperial, but I think it's worth calling/e-mailing them explaining that you've got a deadline on another offer - be sure to put in the 'but I'd rather come to your institution' . Brown nosing gets you far in the world, I've found! Haha.

    What does IPS stand for? Is King's your firm choice? AND, do you have to pay this stupid 10% deposit?
