    I sent mine at the beginning of January (7 weeks ago) and only just heard this week. I wouldn't worry! I phoned up last week and it was just that mine hasn't been seen by everyone yet. leave it a couple more weeks and if you still haven't heard, call them. good luck!

    I thought it went really well, We met right? Yours was just after mine? I think that maybe because you're on foundation and have already done your A-levels their decision may have been made much quicker...I hope i get in!!!! I hate the feeling of not knowing! what did they offer you?

    Ahhh I wondered if that was you! (wasn't sure haha, didn't want to ask) that's a good point, bet it won't be long though, they said 2-3 weeks to me when I asked I'm sure you will be fine if you think it went well. but I know what you mean, waiting is horrible!
    I just have to complete my foundation course, didn't get a grade specified or anything, so that takes the pressure off

    A bit weird to ask isn't it, "Hello, have we spoken briefly on an internet forum before?" haha, oh you'll be fine! Once you get your offer you'll wonder why you were even worried! Who interviewed you?
    I've applied for Marris House, Windsor Terrace and St Marys College as my top 3, then I can't remember which I've put as my second preference option, I'm hoping it won't come to my 4th/5th/6th choice haha. Though Marris House and Windsor Terrace tend to get filled up with unconditional, deferred and international offers, so I think St Marys is the most likely. How about you?

    Hahaha! I know! I was looking at Windsor terrace and castle court but because its quite late, I doubt I will get into either of them...hahaha. I definitely do not want to end up at leazes though. Haha. I think I'm gonna have to wait and see if I get an offer in order to not tempt fait! Haha!
