    Hi everyone!

    How long after registering in Studielink did you get your personal uva-net id? I got it today after more than 3 weeks since registering in Studielink. Is that normal? Is my entire application going to be put to the back of the line and some more waiting even tho it was sent mid January?

    Thanks guys!

    I got mine a few weeks after too. I had to wait 3 months for a reply about my application but it was because of some glitches in the system.

    Last week they asked for my highschool graduation exams diploma and for summary of my final thesis (which we do not have on bachelor's sociology course) and since then silence. I'm a bit worried since I dont't have any final thesis written. Did you guys have to write those at the end of your courses?

    Hmm interesting... no we don't have thesis's in our department. I submitted a 12 page paper for my writing sample. I haven't heard anything yet and I am going to have to start making other decisions if I don't hear from them soon. I can't wait until May to tell other universities I've been accepted to if I'm attending or not, I also graduate May 13th and need a concrete plan due to moving expenses etc etc so I'm hoping we hear something soon.... but I don't think I'm going to hold my breath. On another site, 'grad cafe' is where people submit their acceptances/rejections. It's mainly for U.S. universities, but UvA is on there, but no Americans have heard anything only international students it says so its not looking too good for me hah:/ I hope you hear something soon though!!

    I understand the problem and pressure this situation is causing you. From all I've read I'm starting to think they might be a bit sloppy and slow tho. Don't lose your hopes just yet give it just a bit more time. Did you hear from them after you submitted your application? Did they ask for any extra documents (that means they're at least reading and considering it)? Let me in if you get any reply and I hope I'll see you there!

    I don't think they actually contact letter recommenders unless there's need for some confirmation or additional information so don't worry about that. You've applied for Sociology master's right? Not research master's like me?

    I sent my application for BA Political Science in late November and haven't heard anything yet! It is the only programme I have applied so far and this is so frustrating. I emailed them in early February and they said I should be hear something soon but no... Has anyone else got an offer from Political Science?

    Received an offer for BA Literary Studies. I've already received an offer from UCL, so I probably won't choose Amsterdam. But the courses in Amsterdam seem really interesting...
    Anyone has decided to go to Amsterdam this September?

    Same here. Status shown "admission decision" since end Jan. Do your recommenders receive notification emails to complete your recommendation letter? Also, which course did you apply for? Mine is psychology master.

    I applied for my masters in Poli Sci - IR. Has anyone heard back yet? I live in the US and submitted my application in mid-January. Now other
    schools have gotten back to me and are demanding a decision by mid - April.
