    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew why St Andrews is taking so long to accept/reject my application. I applied to the computer science and maths course back in December and haven't heard back since. I've seen that other people in TSR got offers, so I'm wondering whether this has something to do my application (maybe I've been rejected and they sent rejections letters later on?) or maybe the computing/maths deparment simply take reallyyy long to process the applications. Anyone help?

    Unis have until May to reply, and some applicants are waiting that long. It just means that they haven't decided on your application yet, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. If they were definitely sure that they were rejecting you then they would have sent that reply.

    Yeah, I guess that's true. Still the wait is terrible, especially since I've already been rejected from my first choice (Imperial). You're right though, thanks.
