When are people's DCs planning on finalising their personal statements, with a view to getting the UCAS applns sent off?

DS's school have done the grade predictions but as far as I know haven't done the reference bit yet.

DS has done the first draft of his PS, has feedback from his tutor and is aiming to polish it up this weekend.

<<prays everyone isn't going to post that their DCs applicacations were submitted to UCAS last month and have already got their offers>> wink

mumeeee bravo to your DD3. Indeed she worked v hard and she should be proud of her achievement. Where does she like? Greenwich is really lovely - it is nearby.

Anyone's DC applied to and heard back from St Andrews? The suspense is killing me. DD has other offers but REALLY wants to go there. I hear they are famous for being slow to reply.

Thankyou everyone. MariscallRoad I thunk she would like to go to Greenwhich, University of Glamorgan is not far from us and her sisters are in London. She actually applied for an HND couse in Glamorgan with a view to going on to top it up to a degree, Greenwhich is a degree course and I know she really wants to do the degree but applied for a couple of HND's as she wanted to keep her options open. She is still waiting for 3 other universities. Bolton, Kinston and Univesjty of West London. Bolton asked her to email her qualifications to them which she has done.

The SecondComing - I believe both of those made offers to those who applied earlier. DS is going to an Offer Holders Day at York tomorrow. Hopefully you will hear soon.
