Did you use a fully based geography personal statement when applying? I applied also to Bristol, KCL, UCL (Nottingham instead of Cambridge) and Environment and Sustainability in Uni of Surrey. I am worried they will reject me because of the geography personal statement.
Hey Bristol put me on hold only a few days after I submitted my application, but only a couple days after that I was given an offer. So don't worry about it. About the environment and sustainability course Im kinda worried about that too as I focused on geography in my PS, but I think they will understand that the courses are very similar and that other unis don't offer it should be fine. I hope everything goes great!
