DS submitted his application before Xmas and has heard from 2 already but not his first choice. He tells me nothing unless I drag it out of him so have no idea what we should be doing. Do we wait it out until he has heard from all his applications or what? I thought I'd read somewhere about a deadline and I'd hate for him to miss out because he's waiting for the first choice.

No worries yet. DS applied in September and has heard from 3 but 2 (Edinburgh and St Andrews) are notorious at waiting a long time for Scots. Also (teacher in Scotland) many of my pupils have only heard from 1 or 2 places.

They have to let him know by, I think, end of March. He has to decide on 1st / 2nd by some time in May.

It can take months to get responses, so don't panic.

The deadline to confirm Firm choice and Insurance is early May. Collect the offers until then and review. Some unis will invite applicants to Offer Holder days and tasters.
