My boyfriend received a letter from admissions officer at university saying that, although as a mature student he lacks qualifications, they would like to give him a chance, and so he needs to complete a reading and writing task (read a chapter of the book and write a 1000 essay) to prove his ability to study at undergraduate level. He has been given a time limit of a week to do that, but has sent it off yesterday evening (so basically after two days of receiving it)...The applications cycle, as far as I know, is coming to an end now and I was just wondering what do you all think in terms of the lenght of time it might take the admissions officer to get back to him with the decision?
Should he chase them or leave it until next week (if he doesnt hear from them by friday)?
I was just thinking how much of a bugger that would be if they would just turn around and say that the essay wasnt good enough and refuse to let him in...He spent hours on it, doing the research (it was history related) and is really hoping for a good outcome...
Has anyone been in such a situation? Even if not, any advice would be appreciated...

They might be very busy, so it might take longer than you would like. At least you are getting an answer either way, so until you hear there is no way of knowing. Its just a matter of waiting im afraid. I wish him luck with his application! Hope it works out well for you both.
