    I'm hoping to send off my application to Law by next Friday, I am applying to a couple of universities, but I may be more ambitious of I get an offer from either Liverpool or Birmingham. So I was wondering if I apply to these two unis by next friday, does anyone have a rough guess as to when i'll hear back from them?


    Birmingham will usually reply within 15 working days as they state in their acknowledgement mail.
    I got my Birmingham offer on the 14th working day (Sat and Sun not counted) after I received their acknowledgement mail (which came 3 days after I sent off my UCAS) so I think this is fairly accurate.

    Adding up the days... 3 days between UCAS sent off and acknowledgement received + 18 days (including Sat and Sun) wait between acknowledgement received and offer received, that is a total of 3 weeks time for Birmingham for me. I think it will be a similar case for you although we are applying for different degrees.
