I've just applied for DPhil Engineering and Science for January 2018 start, and received an email saying my application is ready for academic assessment. How long does it generally take to hear from them if I'm accepted or not? I'm a bit stressed cuz I'm an international student and it takes time to sort out the visa issues. Department requires min 3.5 for students from USA. I'm not US uni graduate and my GPA is 3.39 (my undergrad uni uses US System) and I got distinction from MSc at Manchester. So how likely they can reject me for poor GPA? Thanks.
