Waiting for three responses at this stage is just incredibly frustrating and distracting. I have been the least productive today, between stalking this forum, checking emails and my phone.
I wouldn't care quite so much, but as a first time applicant I applied more for experience of the process than anything else and by some miracle landed an interview at UCL - off the back of that I've fallen into the trap that actually it may be possible to get interviews elsewhere.

Does anyone know how Oxford usually deliver their feedback?

Thank you! I have heard that they have done email invites and letter rejections in the past, so I'm assuming if I don't get an email there'll be a rejection letter waiting for me. Waiting for them too yep, so nerve wracking!
No letter here and no e-mail...not sure I can take much more of this! Good luck all!

I hope that means better news for you than myself Samantha86 :) Good luck!

Ahh good luck! Can't check the post until I'm home from work, so I guess I'll have to continue frantically checking my emails then!

Yes it was a letter! When I read that someone else had a letter I drove to my parents (as that's where I was living when I applied) and lo and behold it was waiting there for me!

Just to let you know I popped home for lunch and found an invite to interview letter from Coventry waiting for me (yay! Rejections from everywhere else so had almost given up hope!). Just thought I'd post as someone had mentionned perhaps email invites and letter rejections - looks like both have been letters so far.

Good luck everyone who is still waiting to hear, this week has been SO nerve wracking.

Congratulations!!! Thank you for posting! I clearly just have an incompetent postman/woman! I can't believe I'm going to have to wait another day!

Still no letter or email from cov - I even went to greet the post lady at the end of my drive! I got a little excited when I saw a letter from Newcastle, but it was just info about my Masters I'm currently doing there. Boo :|

Just checked my emails to see if Coventry had done both, but nothing in there so just a letter it looks like. However, last year I received an email from them saying I was on the reserve list for interview. Don't know if they are doing that this year, but I have been applying for years (sigh) and my previous invite (two years ago) was by letter also, and my straight rejection from them was also by letter (3 years ago).

My postie will be getting a big box of chocs at this rate as it looks like he's worked extra hard to get it to me quickly! I do live pretty close to the Uni though, so proximity might explain the quick response...

I emailed them a little while ago and they confirmed that it'll be by email this year.
