    Hey!
    I'm really freaking out at this point. I've sent my UCAS application on October 10th ( Cambridge, Warwick, St. Andrews, UCL and Warwick) and haven't received any offers yet. I applied for economics and I really thought I had a good chance of getting in ( SAT 2180, SAT Physics 800, SAT Math level 2 760 and an average of 10/10 in school). I also have many EC activities and work experience. Could my PS really have been that bad? Do you think I still have any chance of getting offers?

    St Andrews says that they will get back to international applicants on the 3rd week of November at the latest if we apply early so I wouldn't worry too much about them yet. For Cambridge, of course you won't have offers yet and they are only starting to give out interview offers. I don't have an offer from UCL too lool (slightly worried about them but I am chalking it up to being international applicants so they can't give us offers as a condition for attending their open day.) - I assume you are an international applicant because of the SATs? and Warwick from what I heard is pretty competitive. I would have faith and wait

    Yes, I'm an international applicant. I'm worried mainly because many of my classmates already got offers from Warwick

    If it helps my friend who has a 2200+ SAT, 55554 in APs and 2 800s in SAT 2s does not have an offer from Warwick yet as well so you have nothing to worry about.

    British universities take waaaaaaay longer than American colleges. You could be waiting for many months. I've heard of people not hearing back from UCL till March. Don't think that if they really really want you they'll give you an offer quickly.

    You could be waiting any time up to around March, you can't really do anything to speed it up. There's no need to panic or be worried in the mean time. Some universities give out offers right away, some wait until all applications have been received, others give offers out by course and such, there's really no knowing, just relax in the mean time
