    I'm applying for Economics and French. Predicted ABB but I actually really want to go Aberdeen and i'm thinking of making it my 1st choice. Still no offer though, I sent it off on the 18th of November and still nothing.
    They are quite slow, it took them about 3 weeks to give me an offer. So don't worry, you'll probably get one soon

    Maybe it just takes a bit longer for law, it might be more competitive or something. If you have such good grades that you're applying to Cambridge then they'll probably be happy to give you an offer

    I hope so! Because I really wanna study at Aberdeen University if I don't get an offer from Cambridge. ; )

    I applied before you and still haven't heard back.

    Just waiting on Aberdeen and Bristol now. Be quick ABDN so I can decide whether I need to plan a gap-year.

    The UCAS deadline is still a month away, so they won't even have had all their applications in.... makes sense they wait to see how many applications they have so they know roughly how many offers to make. If they have too many people accepting offers it will be a logistical nightmare. Will have to ask people to defer entry etc

    Mine was sent to them on 26th nov but not heard anything. Do wish they'd hurry up and at least acknowledge the application.

    Sorry to double post. For those of you that have acknowledgement letter/email - was it from the admissions people or the faculty that you applied to?

    Haha yeah I would if the postage paid stamp on the front didn't have the date 7th December! Anyway, not to worry.

    An idea for people still waiting for acknowledgement letter: Go to www.abdn.ac.uk/applicportal/ then enter your DoB and Personal ID. If they have received your application I guess you should be able to log in and see the status of it. Mine is pending. Hope this works for the inpatient lot out there (like me) :p:
