I sent off my ucas application in early November, the university emailed me a few days later asking for some additional information to decide which fee status to give me, and after two weeks they had decided. But I still haven't received an offer.. are they just slow?

I had an unconditional offer in January for LLB Hons so they must be giving out some offers.

I sent my application off in the middle of November and just received an offer, so I'd say they are slow but apparently faster than Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt and Dundee...

Sent my application off the 1st of November and also still waiting. Aberdeen should allegedly be quicker at answering than my other choices though (St Andrews and Edinburgh - haven´t heard from them either). In any case, Aberdeen definitely has started sending out offers, so hopefully we´ll hear back soon

How come Glasgow is able to respond in a week and Aberdeen or St Andrews take ages to get back to you :/

Well, St A is quite competitive, but I´m not sure about Aberdeen.

When I applied to Aberdeen, I didn't hear anything from them until the end of April/beginning of June. It was such a nervous time for me since all my friends had offers and knew what they were doing around this time and I was left in the dark until I was getting ready to leave school. They will have been inundated with applications so it can take a 'while' to respond - which I know is no help for the nerves! But you will hear back, don't worry. Best of luck; I hope you get what you applied for!

Applied with the masses few days before the deadline of 15th of Jan and I am still waiting. Hoping for the best and wishing the best to anyone else who's still waiting too.

Aberdeen are notoriously slow and are likely to be even slower this year due to the issues they had with accepting too many students last year. Don't worry guys, no news is good news! It means that they are seriously considering your application rather than they've decided they definitely don't want you .

Coincidentally three years since this thread was created, and I'm in the same situation. Applied in December and still not heard back for my application to Aberdeen to study Economics & Politics.
