so i got turned down by my first choice university, Nottingham, and im pretty much crushed. i thought i was ok, and didnt really react much when i found out, and havnt got all upset about it or whatever cos im not that kinda person, but i just realised im pretty much totally crushed by this news. im so confused, which is probably why im posting this on UG lol, but i guess im just wondering how all you guys are doin with UCAS etc. this only really applies to the UK atm, but im sure a lot of people have not got something / got in somewhere they wanted to or whatever before...?

any advice or stories?

cheers

You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to, so when they turn their back on you, you get a chance to put the knife in.

well im trying to get in at york on a resit :S im really worried as A) i have less chance as im a resit student B) i dont even know if ive got the the grades and C) even with the A in my resit i only have AAB for a AAA/AAB course, might be in the same boat as u in a few weeks man...

can u not take a gap year and try next year?

I fell below my target grades, but I still kind of got in. I fell one behind what they wanted, but I think my personal statement was the thing that did it.

That was last year. I'm at university now.

I agree, i always help people up. At the last show we all protected this little kid who was tying his shoe in the middle of the pit.

Another time I was watching lesbian porn and masterbating, when my mom walks in. Like, right as I climax. She's just standing there with her mouth wide open and I'm like "I was curious...go gay rights!" Fu.cking awkward...

Nottingham, as in not nottingham trent. the entry requirements where absolutely intense, and they get like 5 zillion candidates for like 20 places of some shit so i wasnt really expecting it, but that doesnt make it any easier at all.

Take a third year, or apply to somewhere different.

my personal statement was "one of the best [my application tutor] had ever read". i think it must be my grades which arent really bad, but not REALLY good like they wanted. all i was hoping for was an interview because i would have absolutely Claimed them at interview and got a place. one of the most annoying things is it just says 'unsuccessful', no real reasons, so i might ring up and ask.

Damn, that sucks. What course did you apply for?

Remember that there must be hundreds of people feeling as crappy as you dude. I'm applying for colleges, and I know if I don't get into the one I want I'll be crushed. And in trouble, because it's the only one I've applied for.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.

Business Managment, a very competative course unfortunately. Its just wierd how i found out like a couple of days ago and its just hit me. i hadnt really planned out this happenin and my other choices werent as serious as i should have taken them, so that also sucks. contingency planning people, get on it.
