Its now mid March and I'm still waiting for an offer from St Andrews (International Relations and French WIYA). Is anyone else waiting for offers here? Is it worth emailing admissions to find out? Whats the address?

I also have an interview at Cardiff for a place on the Cardiff-Bordeaux French Politics degree which I'm really excited about. Got rejected from Edinburgh, but four other offers! Can't handle the suspense of waiting for Cardiff and St Andrews.

Cheers
Carl

got my offer from st. andrews 4 international relations about a week ago, so they do seem to be taking ages. one of my other friends is still waiting. Really over-subscribed this year BUT it might be worth calling because St. Andy's int/rel dept. has a bit of a rep for "loosing" applications. happened to this guy i knew last yr.

I'm still waiting for a reply about medieval History, and I phoned the admissions office today, who said that UCAS have told St Andrews to get all their replies out by the end of March. So I'd say don't panick yet, but if it goes beyond March, then chase up your application.

Hehehe my current first choice is Cardiff French/Politics, who want BBC. However all that could change, depends on this interview at Cardiff and my St-And offer. We'll just wait and see.....

Gd luck mate- in some ways I'd actually rather go to St.A's but because it's so isolated I wouldnt be able to keep with auditions for theatre in london. Guess there will always be something you're not happy abt.

The department is internationally reknowned, with a centre for Terrorism Studies (!) as their focus for research. I went to their open day last summer and the day after the lecturer who spoke to us was on BBC breakfast news discussing the Israel problem after a suicide bombing.
