I have currently applied to 3 universities (one of them being oxford) and now i have 2 more spaces to choose.
I was considering applying to imperial as well, but decided that it was too risky and that i should stick with safer options.

I recently found out that oxford give offers/rejections around the 10th or 11th of January ( a few days before the ucas deadline).
Im now contemplating whether i should use my last 2 choices and apply now to the safer unis, or if I should wait until Oxford reply, as a rejection/offer will change which unis i apply to.

If anyone could give any advice it would be much appreciated as I am slightly worried that applying to the 2 unis a couple days before the deadline may lower my chances slightly.
