Ah that makes two then, nothing since then though :frown:
How long did it take for people to get acknowledgements? And do they give acknowledgements to everyone or is it just random/depending on the department?



And to EilidhM and Oxy: did you guys get the letter with your acknowledgment or afterwards?

Thankyou!!

I got an acknowledgement by email a day after I sent away my UCAS form. It might be specific to departments, though.

I got an acknowledgement from the Geography department a few days after my application. I think it will almost definitely vary within the uni.

Yup! To be honest, I'm crapping myself XD I know it's so competitive, especially for St. Andrews and Edinburgh :eek4: Guess all I can do is sit tight and wait.

It was part of the acknowledgment letter and it came with information about visiting the university and scholarships but I think that it just depends on the department:smile:

Depending on your 2 extra highers and the 2 advanced highers I think you will be OK. How is your PS?

Doing Higher Chemistry and Psychology, Advanced English and Biology.

I'd like to think my PS was pretty good :erm: English is one of my strong points, so I didn't find it too hard to write, and I got it checked by the PS helpers here, as well as some teachers/friends at school.

I got an acknowledgment email from them then sometime later (after i went to open day i think) i got another letter about my app, and said they probably wont send out offers till after Jan 15th but said they had reviewed my application.

I think you have done your best then. St Andrews is competitive but they do seem very fair. Good luck :smile:
Figures the place I really want to go doesn't give out offers for ages :frown:

At least my course only requires AABB, it give me a bit of hope and I think my PS was pretty good at showing my enthusiasim for the subject :smile:

I have had a pretty weird education and i ended up in an american school for my last two years. Because of that they wanted my transcript which is basically a piece of paper with my grades on it. But since this happening because i am applying as an "american" i dont think that you have to worry about it.:smile:
