    Hi, I applied to Universities and two of them asked me to go to their applicant day? I'm looking to do mmaths and i think its basically a tour of the department and the course but does it effect my chances if i don't go?

    One of my friends said if i go i will be guaranteed a place while if i don't go I'll have less chance of getting offered. On the emailed that sent to me it said 'We are very impressed with your application to Mathematical Sciences and are considering making you an offer.' But i bet they said that to everyone haha

    Also what is applicant day like? What do you do? Do you get asked questions etc etc I didn't get to go to any open days because i was on holiday...

    Thank you!

    Oh, because I got an identical email from them too for mathematical sciences! I did a little reading around and people have claimed that going doesn't affect your chances of getting an offer or not. The fact that you got the email in the first place and that they're impressed with your application means they want you to have a look around the University to encourage you to want to go there further. They want to see if you really would enjoy the course there!
    On the other hand, it still seems like a great opportunity! I'd still go (I mean I am going). My email says that there's going to be an informal interview, so it can't hurt for them to get to know you better

    Ah, I forgot to mention. Some other generous members posted their experiences in this thread here (I asked a lot of questions about it~)

    They went on different days due to different course areas. So helpful and immensely interesting!
