    Does anyone know where I can find an alternative prospectus for Edinburgh?
    I'm a bit out of touch, so I no longer really remember what one is, but this may be the sort of thing you're looking for:

    Its one written by students, they send out emails each year around this sort of time saying review your courses for the alternative prospectus. I don't think many subjects have an entry though. I think you get a copy in freshers week but I never read mine.

    Glad I'm not the only one! Where else have you applied?
    Nottingham, Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield, and I've got offers from all of them. But Edinburgh is the only one I actually really want to go to - lol trust them to be the slowest!

    I feel your pain. I got offers from all my other places (for languages) aages ago, but I'm still waiting for Edinburgh which is the only one I ACTUALLY want to go to. I'm getting quite cross about it though! WHY do they need my application for three months longer than everyone else?! Gahh, it's just the waiting that drives you slightly insane

    haha completely! I would be starting to really hate them if it weren't for the fact that I love their course!

    I think she means the last date for Universities to reply.

    The last recommended date for Universities to reply is 31st of March. They can still reply later but if you haven't received a reply by 5th of May then the application automatically counts as a rejection.

    Exactly right!! I've already got a kind of love/hate relationship going on. They are so slow though!!
    I'm applying for Italian and Linguistics. I found someone on TSR who was applying for the same thing (amazingly, it's an incredibly little course - only 9 applicants last year!!), and he got an offer last week. But then again he is scottish, and I thiink he's already got his highers, so it might be a little while yet for me

    Shall we go beat them up or something?!

    It happened a couple of years ago too when I was applying. It probably happens every year because the uni admin is always useless in every possible way. But don't worry, the application should become available soon, and you've got plenty of time to apply because it's not first come first served based anyway.

    Oh, I know. I just like to do these things and get them out of the way. I love ticking off the things that are on my "to do before uni starts" list.
