    EDIT: it's all good everyone, ended up getting an offer to UWC Pearson and i CAN'T WAIT AHHH

    hi! i applied to uwc through the gb committee for 2018 entry and just found out i got waitlisted. does anyone know how many people on the waitlist get offered places (at least in the past few years)?? and if they tend to be at atlantic college (bc ofc the gb committee has more places there), or abroad??also, roughly how long does it takes to hear back?? like around march, april, or much later?? and do you only hear back if you dO get offered a place, or if you don't as well?? thanks

    hi I feel like we’re constantly on the same student room threads haha. What do you mean by waitlisted? Does everyone get the opportunity to be put on the waiting list or only some?

    oh hi @izzywoodcock ,, in my outcome email it said “although we cant offer you a place at a uwc college at this time, if you would like to be waitlisted please email........etc” (or something along those lines) so i did. i dont know if everyone who doesnt get an offer gets that option. it basically means that if someone else doesnt accept their offer at one of my specified uwc’s, i might get offered it instead. was that in your email too?? or not?? or did you get an offer straight away????

    yeah I got the same email with the bit in bold saying I could email if I wanted to be put on the wait list. The only thing is I think a lot of people aren’t accepting their places because the fees are too expensive so idk if I’d be able to accept that place either. Were we at the same assessment day, I recognise your name?

    I feel so sorry for everyone who’s been offered places they can’t afford I almost think it’s worse for them than us. Yeah I was on the 15th I think we were in the same group for the bigger group activities like the games. Sounds a bit creepy but I remember thinkin you would definitely get in.

    Thank you! It’s to Atlantic College and what I mean is that the email was unclear at whether I was being offered a place or being considered for a place

    That's odd. Was it a recent e-mail? ie did you initially get an e-mail saying you hadn't got a place?

    Thank-you for that. When did you get confirmation about the summer course last year? Not knowing is having an effect on the rest of the family and what they do over the summer
