    Hey!

    There seems to be a difference between the notification dates of most UK and US universities.

    For those in the UK, it seems that many hand out offers whenever they reach a decision, whereas in the US, there is, for many, a set date in the year on which candidates receive their decision.

    I feel like each has its advantages and disadvantages.

    Personally, I dislike the way you could receive a rejection at any point for the Unis in the UK, because it keeps me constantly worried about receiving a rejection at a time I don't want to. I feel like for those in the USA, at least one can prepare oneself for the decisions date and not be kept in as much imminent suspense.

    What are your opinions?

    Not necessarily. UCAS universities have the deadline of May next year. Most USA ones do it in a couple of months afaik
