    RE: Edinburgh application. In addition to the standard e-notice that his application has been received, our son got a nice email from someone on the History faculty saying that he would get a decision in 4-6 weeks at the latest. That would make for a great November surprise!

    @Conformist1688 she is taking AP BC, AP stats, Physic honor, philosophy and English. Our highschool is not into AP that much, she is at top tier of her class level.

    That was fast. Our son just got his first response: unconditional from Exeter! Much happiness at our house. And wondering what might happen with the other four. But what a relief to have one confirmed so soon!

    Super news, @CuriousInCincy! Mid-Oct & a really good option in his pocket :-)

    Great news! Don't be surprised if the 5 are *really* spread out, they each have their own pace and timetable.

    @VickiSoCal Thanks for the tip! It’s a long road but the trip just got a bit easier.

    @CuriousInCincy Has your son been allocated to a college yet?
  • CuriousInCincyCuriousInCincy Registered User Posts: 109 Junior Member
    @HazeGrey I don’t think so, but we’ll check the initial email he received from Exeter. Recommendations?
  • CuriousInCincyCuriousInCincy Registered User Posts: 109 Junior Member
    @HazeGrey Ah, I think you were referring to his Oxford app. Yes, the open application funneled him to Mansfield. Their website celebrates inclusion and a high percentage of students from public schools, which is certainly the case with him.

    I got allocated to Corpus Christi for PPE. Anyone have any experience with Corpus Christi? What is it like? If I were to be accepted (knock on wood), what is the possibility it would be at another college?

    Corpus is great! it's very central, pretty and very friendly. On average about 30% of applicants end up in a different college than they originally apply to, but that's overall and over time, so it's hard to say what your odds of getting an offer from a different college are (esp as Corpus has a solid PPE contingent). Good luck!

    Corpus Christi is a great choice. As mentioned above it is very central and close to a number of the academic buildings. One of my son's friends goes there and loves it.

    It is quite common to get pulled into another college, but I would not worry about it as it is out of your control and it is still Oxford!

    For the data bank, an ACT score of 32, and SAT IIs of 680 and 720 resulted in an unconditional offer for Business Management from Edinburgh for my US-based senior. No transcript sent in: simply supplied these scores and the completed UCAS application, submitted on 10/7. Decision posted on 10/25. Just waiting for one more decision (another UK university) and I think we're done...hard to believe.

    @JustOffTheBoat I'm jealous. Chemistry was not so easy at Edinburgh last year :-)
