    hi i'm an american student, and I applied through the direct application a few weeks ago. on the application portal, it says pending decision, but I can't seem to find anywhere that has an accurate decision time. Are we thinking before mid-November or later than that??
    thanks!

    Hi! Fellow St Andrews applicant here. I've heard decisions come out around mid-February time (so not any time around November!). I think it's due to the difference in the Scottish Education system (anyone can feel free to correct me, though)

    International applicants get an earlier decision time

    Scots/EU/rUK applications typically after January though as you said.

    hi! I'm an American applicant as well. I applied in late October and on the common app btw. On my tour, the admissions guy said if you applied in early November you would most likely hear back by Christmas. He said it usually takes between 6-12 weeks for Americans to hear back. it also depends on the course you applied for, some they hold back a wait for the general pool.
