Ditto! If I feel nostalgic I take a little look through the 2008 Applicants thread and sigh..... Looking at the posts of nervous desperation, waiting for decisions is rather poignant, especially now that work has started and I just realised today my philosophy essay is due next friday! Eeek!
Anyways, best of luck applicants! We know how you feel!
Hello there. I am applying for History!!! I love the look of St Andrew's so much.
Students who applied (and got in) last year, when did most people start getting offers?
Unfortunately St Andrews is known for keeping applicants waiting! I received my (unconditional ) offer at the start of February, but there are LOADS of people who were kept waiting until well into March! So, be prepared for a long wait....
Do they send acknowledgement emails? I mean, considering how desperate I want St Andrews it's a bit rude that they're the only uni that havent said anything. :P And do they wait till Jan before giving out places?
applying for philosophy - it's funny, because nearly two weeks after I sent my application off I suddenly decided to replace Edinburgh for St Andrews - not too sure if that was a bad choice though, because I think I would've been more likely to get an offer from Edinburgh. Oh well, St Andrews looks amazing still
