Sweetpea, who are you waiting for? I'm waiting for UEL. If you are too, I'll post if the letter arrives.

Gosh, the wait is excruciating. I'm still waiting on Birmingham, Staffordshire and Coventry if anyone hears anything :-)
It's even worse for me, as they have my parents address rather than my own. So, even though I am at home today and tomorrow, I won't know when the post even arrives hah!! Think I'm

Oxford and Royal Holloway. I only applied to 3 though, so it's a fair chunk of my hopes on hold, ugh.

Fingers crossed your letter arrives soon so you can take a breather!

Hi Becky,

I feel exactly the same, I am still waiting on Birmingham, South Wales and Cov/Warwick. I can't concentrate at work. I keep thinking today will be the day. I have a horrible feeling we will be kept waiting until tomorrow :(

Still waiting to hear from:

Plymouth
Coventry and Warwick

11th application and from those 4 interviews, I managed to get on the reserve list for Plymouth last year.....

Good luck everyone still waiting, whilst we don't know it's still a 50/50 yes 8)
Hiya - that would have been me, I have absolutely every sympathy for the others it has happened to, it was gut-wrenching at the time! Curious, when did you find out about Coventry please? The anticipation is killer!

Yes maybe it's best if we resign ourselves to the fact we won't hear until 6pm tomorrow lol. Im surprised that Cov/Warwick are so late, considering there were no selection tests

Fingers crossed for more gorgeous greens :)

Was UEL a letter or email? I'm working out of town today, so my letterbox seems oh so far away!
