Early Offers and Receiving more than 1 uni offer!!
Universities: Posted 4-12-09 Deadline - No Deadline
I mentioned earlier this year that it is possible for students to receive more than uni offer if they juggle offers and acceptances well. It is possible for a student to receive up to 3 offers from universities if you plan it right. This will give you more choice in January ie your dream course or your backup course or a place at uni if you get a very low ATAR. So if you have received an early entry offer from a university, my advice (and that of UAC) is to to accept your offer and make it your number 1 preference by the date in the letter (eg UNE 10th Dec). This you can then then accept, defer or decline if you receive a better offer. Then, once you get your ATAR, change your preferences again for the Main and subsequent round offers. This will not affect the first offer.
