Timing of UCL decisions


legalalien
For general info, I received a letter in the post today indicating that my UCL application had been forwarded to the selectors and that I should receive a response by 11 December (offer, invitation to interview, request for further info, follow up response or rejection). My application completed following receipt of the second online reference on 27 October.

Obviously I'd be interested in how others' applications are progressing.

If it makes any difference, my letter was dated 30 October so was delivered quite quickly (I'm in London). There hasn't been any change to the online status.

I have a problem with the online reference at UCL. At the time I submitted my app it was necessary to choose the option"email". However, one of my referee is an old guy a Superior Court Judge. Therefore, I believe he will not be able to enter on line. What should I do?

I think you'll need to ring admissions

Tel: +44 (0)20 7679 7742.

If you're living somewhere obscure / out of time zone let me know and I can give them a call and ask, but it may be easier for you to call so that they can deal with your specific record.

I note the website says to contact them if you haven't heard anything within 2 weeks after your application has completed.

UCL received my complete application on 26 oct but I have not received any reply so far... Should I get worried? Maybe the reply mail takes long to arrive since I am not an UK resident.

fausto - I wouldn't worry yet - the letter I received was sent second class, so I was just lucky that it was delivered quite quickly. We've had quite a lot of industrial action / strikes by Royal Mail recently, these may have slowed down mail sorting etc.

Any news from UCL?

I applied via mail and so far I've not heard anything from them. I sent an e-mail asking for confirmation at least of safe receipt of my application... no reply.

Getting more and more nervous I must admit...

Is there anyone in the same situation?

Keep in touch!

They do neither answer the phone nor reply to e-mails... damn!

Could anyone of us based in London go and knock at their door...?

I received an e-mail from UCL confirming that they got my application and that it has been sent to the selectors.

They also sent me an acknowledgment letter but I've not received it yet...

Jude Law, I think you should write to UCL asking upon your application.

graduate admissions operate a drop in service at the laws building on mondays-fridays from - if my memory serves me correctly - ten till one, and two till four thiry.

i haven't heard anything from ucl whatsoever, and my patience is wearing thin! i've tried calling them, but without success; and the only reason that i know this little snippet of information about their graduate admissions office is because i went to see them in person out of frustration last week. unfortunately i got there at thirty-one minutes past four :P i am now in the middle east, where i will be for the next couple of months and am have thus resigned myself to not hearing anything from ucl anytime this century!

keep up the info posts y'all!

Hey, I am in Hong Kong and I have received the acknolwedgement letter as the letter informing me that my applciation was forwarding to the selectors on 18th November notwithstanding tha tthe date of the letter was 5th November. It said that I would get further notification by 19th December. I believe that due to the Christmas and New Year's Eve, probably, I have to wait till the early 2010!

guys one piece of advise

stop emailing or calling them...they wont answer any of your questions so far,,its too soon,,have patience!

when i applied last year (around October 24) i only heard from them around January, i mean the final decision. So believe me there is still some time left, be patient.

right now they must be handling with a lot of applications,,,they have lotssssssssssssssss every year and they also have to handle with their current students etc.

its a great university,,i really love it and im very very happy i chose this uni. The staff its extremely helpfull, the teaching quality is 5 stars and even when i had some visa problems the university helped and supported me so dont worry about them taking some extra weeks to get back to yu,,,they are quite busy but they will reply soon. Only call or email them if more than 2 months and a half have passed since you applied.
