I'm getting a little worried now as I haven't sent my application off. Some of my friends have and they have already got some offers
Am I now at a dissadvantage, to those who sent theirs off much earlier, by sending mine off in the next week or so?

Jan 15th is the deadline. UCAS do not give priority to those who send it off first.

at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter
if you're a good candidate they'll take you regardless of when you send of your UCAS

Universities have to give all applications equal consideration until January the 15th and in that respect you will not be at a disadvantage.
Some people however argue that handing in earlier may put you at an advantage as admissions tutors are less over worked in terms of UCAS applications before the Christmas period so they may have more time to read through your Personal Statment etc.

In my honest opinion I'd say it's better to get it in early cause it shows your organised. But at the same time you don't want to rush your PS or application. Generallymost people send it off in November, so this means in December Admissions Tutor's are gonna be busy.
UCAS says officially that you don't have a disadvantage which is true, but in reality admissions tutor's are probably gonna have more time to look at your application.
I sent mine off on November 3rd which is fairly early, but at this stage you have nothing to worry about. If you had have posted this thread on January 10th or something then I'd have started to panic. Just make sure you keep at your personal statement, do a bit each night, and try and send it off ASAP is my personal advice.

Apparently it doesnt make a difference. I sent mine over 4 weeks ago, but my school have not even started my reference yet, so its still with my school.Last edited by sk88; 12-11-2008 at 15:23.
