What to do with early offers at UNE
Universities: Posted 23-11-06 Deadline - No Deadline
If you really want to do the course you have been accepted into at UNE, make it your first preference and leave it that way so you get an Early Round offer. If you are hedging your bets and want to see if you get a UAI that will enable you to do another course, you can make the UNE course your first preference now to get an Early Round offer and then change your preferences from mid December to hopefully get your first choice in the Main Round offers on 17th January. Therefore it is possible to get two offers. You may run the risk of missing out on a course if you get a low UAI and juggle your offers incorrectly. To be sure of your course of action, I suggest you ring the University concerned and/or UAC to check.
