    Hey,

    I'm an American who just sent his application for english literature to Oxford, UCL, Kings, Edinburgh, and Queen Mary. I was just curious as to when I can expect to hear anything and if being an international has any affect?

    Thanks

    Shouldn't have any effect unless they find it hard to interperet your grades (assuming they are not A-Levels), although I don't think this is likely. Lots of difference in waiting time between unis, but most should let you know before christmans. You'll do a test and maybe interview before you get anything offer wise from Oxford ...

    Also, I think most universities send an acknowledgement email when they get your application

    Don't be surprised if you're waiting till March for UCL.

    You'll hear from Oxford probably in November.
