UEA Reserve

Post by flowerbud » Mon Mar 30, 2009 10:40 am

Hi all,
I'm new to this. I just found out I'm third on the reserve for a place at UEA. I'm just wondering if anyone who was offered a place was thinking of not accepting.
This is my first year of applying and i'm not sure what to expect of being on the reserve. Difficult to know how to feel.

Thanks,
Flowerbud xx

Congratulations flowerbud!

From reading other posts on here it seems as though the reserve lists can move quite a bit, and since you're third you have a really good chance on getting on the course. Good luck!

That is high up on the reserve list on a course that interviews early so I would say you have a very decent chance of getting a place. But you just never can tell with reserve lists and can be a very frustrating waiting game until you get that call.

Hi there flowerbud,

Congratulations on getting a reserve place for UEA!!!
I know that in the past couple of years the reserve list for UEA has moved quite a bit. It's early days in terms of interviews and many people might have interviews, get offers and subsequently accept them for other Unis.

But as Ruthie says, there's no guarantees and it is a horrible waiting game I'm afraid!! Best of luck!

hiya, i think i'm going to turn down my place at UEA as have been also offered a place on another course. So that means the reserve list should move at least one place! x :D

Hi Flowerbed,

Just wanted to show a little solidarity. I'm also on the UEA reserve list, just a bit lower down than you. It's a strange mixture of emotions. Not too confident about my chances but delighted to have a slight chance. It's just horrible not knowing anything and having to wait, and being so powerless. Still two months go.

Anyway, good luck and I suppose fingers crossed for the both of us.

Hi,

The reserve list has moved two places if anyone is interested. That would now make you first reserve Flowerbud. Good to know that at least its moving. Good luck.
