    When I get some final feedback on my personal statement, make those changes and convince myself that my options are the best ones for me. So probably in the next few days. Can't put a date on it yet.

    I said to myself Wednesday is the day. I've made my choices, finished my statement, asked the reference tutor to read the personal statement for the last time, this time through UCAS. I will send it when I decide my last and fifth non medical choice. I might send it this Friday just in case I want to re-consider one of my choices, though I am feeling really confident What about you, how is your application process going?

    I know this is probably a silly question but do you get an advantage if you send it off earlier when compared to someone who sends it off the day before the deadline?

    I believe the official answer is "no". It has to be, to ensure that all applicants are given an equal chance.

    However, an eeensy weensy tiny bit of me hopes that when the very first applications arrive at institutions, someone in the office might look at the first couple along the lines of: "Ahh, the first forms are here, let's have a peek and see what the standard is like this year".

    Even more improbably, I'm hoping that they might see mine and think: "Hmm, that's an unusual applicant" and then remember later-on during the official papersifting and look favourably on my application.

    Of course I appreciate it's HIGHLY unlikely, but I'm still hopeful.....

    unfortunately my reference is out of the country until the 12... so that means I can't send it off until he writes his reference!!!
    At least I can keep reviewing my statement...
    Any and all help is much appreciated if you guys can read through it!!!

    I am happy to read it and give you feedback, as long as you understand that I am not in any way qualified to do so. I can certainly let you know if it reads well and any glaring hum-dingers....

    I sent it off to my school ages ago and my referee has added the reference but they're still not sending it off! :mad:
    I guess they're waiting for all the oxbridge and medicine applications to be done so they can send them all at the same time but I was organised and finished everything so I just wish they would send mine although it probably won't make a difference.

    Mine was sent off by my school yesterday, and by midnight, I had received confirmations from all 4 unis; quite a few seem to have their own portals which you get access to.

    Cambridge, St. Andrews, UCL and Edinburgh (like that one's gonna happen ). I think some unis might wait until the deadline before checking through applications (at least, I think I read that in a thread somewhere!) so don't worry about not getting any emails yet.
