Hey! What did you apply for? And did you get a second mail to confirm your details by uploading a passport copy?

not at all. Honestly, I'm giving it at least 8 weeks. I've applied to two UK universities too and the applications have crossed the 8-week mark and still in the first stage. COVID has been hard for colleges.

I sent in my application for the media studies programme in November, and got my response in early March. I sent in an application for the communication science programme at the same time, and got a response in December. The response time seems to vary a lot by faculty and depending on your application.

Hi everyone! I'm going through the same anxiety. I applied for the UvA social science research master's program in late January and, since my application has got stuck in the "admissions decision" stage for a while now - I'd say three weeks roughly- , I've started to lose hope. The thing is I need to respond to an offer from a different uni soonish and I'm not sure how I should handle it... (Same for Leiden and Utrecht... no responses yet). Do you think there's still hope for these three or is it more of a lost game already?

I think there's still hope honestly. Universities are just trying to cope with COVID. I have heard of a few people who got positive offers after 14 weeks of applying also (UK Universities). Don't worry.

I wouldn’t worry too much. Their system seems to be very random!
