    Hello

    I applied last October for two different uni's using an access course I completed 10 years ago this year. I know my Access course is old, but I was just trying my luck before I considered doing something else to get me into Uni.

    Anyway, I've been rejected for 4 of my 5 options so far (which I expected), but I haven't been given a decision on one option (my actual preference and close to the content of my access course) and the deadline is next Friday (05/05/16).

    I have phoned the Uni and they have told me that my application is still being considered, so my questions are:

    1) Could it be that they're waiting to see if they fill their places before they consider me?

    2) If the deadline is the 5th; will I definitely get a decision before then?

    Thanks,
    James.

    Did you hear back from your 5th choice?
