    so i sent off my ucas and heard back from two but sheffield just sent a letter acknowledging that they received my app

    two months after sending off my ucas, i ring up sheffield and they said that all the people who were rejected have been notified but 2 months is much too long to consider my application. so they will call me back tomorrow to update me.

    im literally in tears because now i feel like im going to get rejected and i really want to go to sheffield

    has this ever happened to anyone? where an application gets overlooked?


    im absolutely terrified and idk wat to do

    Calm down, they've only just started considering it (for whatever reason), so you have just as much chance of acceptance as everyone else assuming you got your application in before Jan 15th deadline. No need to worry about it before it happens. Best of luck

    i know you didnt ask but if anyone is looking at this thread:
    I got invited to interview following that phone call and was notified via email. The reason they gave for taking so long was that they needed more time to consider my application. My interview occurred in mid-May and an offer e-mail was sent the very next day!

    I have just moved into my accommodation and am starting my degree at the university of Sheffield! thanks for all your help x
