    I didn't get an email at all for the UCL Open Day thingy. Maybe it's because I'm an international applicant (from Asia)? Ahhhh the wait is killing me!

    Considering I haven't received a UCL open day invitation yet for Economics, what should I be thinking right now?

    I'm pretty sure there's multiple open days. UCL state that around 100 people attend them to collect their offers. There are a lot more than 100 offers though.

    Do you know when the other open days are and when the invitations for them will be handed out?
    There's 200 places for Economics at UCL though guessing they'll give 300+ offers or more due to some taking other universities.
    I would personally take UCL over Oxford, wish there was a way of hinting this to the Econ tutors haha.

    There are many applicants, they need time to consider each application and many people still haven't applied so they can't give too many offers now.
    I presonally wouldn't get worried, I applied on 8th October, got no other email from UCL apart from the acknowledgement one.

    Considering Cambridge give 200-ish places and LSE give 250-ish places. If they have 200 places then I'm predicting around 400-500 offers since there are other great Uni's out there (eg. Warwick, Oxford etc.)

    Got an invitation to the UCL open day thing, and I got an AAB offer from Warwick! (I have an A* in maths already)

    So excited

    Today was supposed to be the deadline for the 5 weeks email from LSE, but instead I've got two others! Just LSE and Cambridge to go now!

    Pretty sure they give out more offers than that. I'd say ~500 offers.

    that should make everyone very happy (including you) as our chances of getting an offer is higher then, I heard that for UCL econ there is around 12 applicants for each place so having a one in four chance of getting an offer isnt quite bad you know, and its even more likely if your grades are above the average of the applicants.

    haha yeah it's definitely made me more optimistic for sure, but im still nervous i mean it is UCL afterall, these guys are pretty much on the same level of Warwick/LSE. yeah i guess so, im hoping my personal statement + EPQ swings it for me because im "only" predicted A*AA while i bet a lot of applicants will have A*A*A predictions or more... ive got the A* prediction in Maths which definitely helps ( + AS Further ) but who knows!

    These statistics definitely making me more optimistic aswell ! And same as yourself for me, hope personal statement and economics related EPQ (with quite a personal topic) differentiates me from other applicants to some extent, I'm predicted A*A*A* which hopefully will help aswell.
