    Hello guys,

    I applied 2 weeks ago for MSc in Machine Learning and I have received an email confirming me that they received my references which are going to be forwarded, but there is still no update on the Applicants Portal (Portico).
    Should I be worried ? Or is it normal ?

    Thank you,
    Maybe you should e-mail them. But regarding time, 2 weeks isn't so long, in my opinion.

    Yep! Thanks Not 100% sure if I'll take it but about 95% leaning in that direction.

    Hi, congrats on the offer! Sorry to butt in like this, but would you mind me asking about your undergrad degree please? I'm looking to apply for next year for either MSc or MRes, you see. Just gathering info as I go ^_^
    Thank you!

    Sweet.
    Could I also ask what info they want from your personal statement and cv, and what did you include? Are they quite bothered by one's extracurricular activities?
    Questions, questions everywhere >_<
    But thanks for all the help!

    For what exactly? Are you applying to the MSc in Neuroscience or do you mean the four-year PhD? And usually they won't care about your extracurriculars, unless they are very relevant to your course, and often very little even then. It's mostly grades, research experience, references, personal statement.

    I'd like to apply to the four year PhD
    So any tips/advice would be extremely welcomed!

    You should contact the admission team, sure they can advice u on dat. Also, its better you call, bcos it myt take them almost a week to respond to ur e-mail.By the way, u shud inform ur professors about the urgency of the references.Goodluck

    Same course? Have you accepted your offer yet?
    I am particularly interested in how the treatment of food / eating in literature has changed in the nineteenth / twentieth century. How about you?

    Yep, same program. I'm interested in J.D. Salinger, particularly his short stories written during WWII.

    I haven't accepted the offer yet because I'm waiting to hear from Oxford (I probably won't get in, but ya never know...). Have you accepted it?

    Sounds interesting! I like reading short stories by authors that are not necessarily well known for their short stories; some interesting finds sometimes. Haven't read much American Literature at all though. Where did you do your undergrad?

    Haven't accepted yet either - waiting to hear from Cambridge. Probably won't get in either, but only about two weeks more of a wait, so will see Fingers crossed for Oxford nonetheless!

    Good luck! Keep in touch if you do accept the offer.

    ------

    Here's a stupid question for anyone to answer...I'm an American, and I know that UCL is an extremely good school...but how hard is it to actually get into a MA program there? How competitive is it, really? Like, should I feel really special or something? It's hard for me to gauge, being from overseas. Any info or personal opinions would be useful, since I'm just going off of whatever I read online...

    Hi guys,

    Just a quick question. I got accepted for one of my choices (they replied in two weeks!). However for my other choice they have told me they received many applications so the decision will take a bit longer (approx 6 weeks). I am seeing others here who also got offer within 2 weeks so am worried about the one that is taking longer... did anyone here get an offer after more than 6 weeks consideration?

    I received this e.mail:

    Due to the large number of high quality applications received by Political Science it has become necessary to consider applications in gathered fields. This means that you will not receive a decision immediately as the consideration period will be longer. However we hope to have a decision ready for you by April.
