    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone else has gotten their offers yet? I just got mine for Deaconess, which was my first choice! I couldn't be happier.

    When did you apply? I applied last night and I'm excited to hear back. I don't expect it for a few months though. I've got quite a few friends who are also going to Edinburgh and they've not heard back either (the applied quite a bit earlier than me!)

    Congratulations on receiving your offer and it being your first choice!!

    What is Edinburgh's reputation as far as getting your first choice offer for accommodation? Any idea?

    Recently filled out the housing application and am wonderful what chance I have at getting any of my top three choices.

    I know no one will know specifically but does anyone have friends/family w/ experience applying for housing at Univ of Edinburgh? I have a conditional offer so I don't expect to hear back for a while anyway but I'm wondering what my odds are of getting on of my first choices.

    I got an offer for Deaconess (my first choice) for a five person flat. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing, though (four new friends vs not getting along with four people for a year)... Any advice for living with new people, while being very far from home? (I'm an international student)

    Just remember that your new flatmates will be in the same situation! Well, the might not be international. But chances are they've moved to a new city and they're probably feeling uneasy too!

    Congrats on getting your first choice! I'm yet to hear back :/

    It seems that I've been made an offer of accommodation but I can't find it! Am I supposed to be able to see the offer before clicking on "accept contract" or what?

    It really depends on if you are unconditional and the accommodation offices process. I know people who were confirmed this week that got their offers this week. But they applied a while ago. If you are conditional you'll get it sometime after you get confirmed. If you are unconditional, you can expect it anytime between after you apply until the end of august.
