    I received this email from East Anglia on the 23rd of November saying:

    'Thank you for your application to study at the University of East Anglia. This is a prestigious and competitive programme with a limited number of spaces. As such, some applicants will be considered as part of a gathered field. This will ensure that your application will receive equal academic consideration, taking into account your personal statement and reference.'

    Just wondered if anyone else has had one and what it actually means, its been a while since they sent the email and nothing has changed yet?

    I didn't receive this email - but the again I applied for international development which isn't a competitive course. I think what they are saying is that, the course you applied for has a lot of other applicants from other candidates - thus the process time will be longer as they are taking their time, and considering all applicants! Good luck

    Yes, I too have this email. I think it means they're going to wait until all the applications are in until making any decisions...a kind of 'you'll do but we'll wait and see if anyone better comes along' type thing.
    Hopefully we're still in with a chance though

    I'm assuming this was what they sent you as an acknowledgement right? I submitted my UCAS two days ago and just yesterday they sent me their acknowledgment, but it read:

    Dear Philip

    I am pleased to inform you that we have received your application at the University of East Anglia.

    We are now considering your application. Due to the high volume of applications received it may take some time to process. We ask for your patience and will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

    I think LuckyBlackCat7 is right though-- they're just waiting for other applicants because yours may be a very competitive course this year.

    No they sent me this email a week or so after my acknowledgement email from them the one that you have received. They still haven't said anything yet so fingers crossed they'll reply soon.

    Congratulations to you then! I just received an offer for Bio Sci as well Although I'm still waiting for other universities to reply before making my final decision.
