    Wow congrats on ur offers and the interviews
    I heard that this year the applicants almost doubled from last year...!
    this is prob why they are taking a little longer to respond to some of the applicants.

    For my UCAS personal stament im thinking of mentioning "House by Tracy Kidder"
    i have not yet read it but i think ill use it as a transition into how ive develouped my communcation and managment skills
    that are important skills for any architect as emphasized in the book

    Should i be mentioning this book since i believe even though it does focus on archicture it does involve some fiction so im unusre if i should put it in my personal stament

    Definitely do not quote a book that you haven't read! Fiction in a book would not be a problem, but you will get tripped up if you purport to have read something you haven't.

    The personal statement is supposed to be about you. It doesn't have to be "clever" - almost certainly whoever is reading it (and the hundreds of other personal statements) will have "heard it all before" if you tell them about playing with lego or wanting to build your own monstrous Trump Tower etc. Just explain simply why you want to study architecture, where you have been or what you have seen that has inspired you (ideally avoiding the architecture applicant bingo, "Gaudi, Ghery, Frank Lloyd Wright, Foster, Hadid HOUSE!". If you have done work experience in an architect's office (or worked on a building site or whatever) then say when and where. If not, then explain how you intend to get work experience before you start. Work experience is not a prerequisite, studying architecture is a distinct thing from working in architecture, but why would anyone take a course without sampling the job they hope to do at the end of it?

    assume 2000 applied, yet there will be 500 interviewees, going for 100 places. If you're confident you'll get an interview, your chances are 1/5, not so bad right
