Thanks alot for your reply.
It was really valuable for me. i'm feeling you as a good friend though we don't know each other, hope one day we can meet.This time also i'v small query hope u'll hsve the same type ok co-operation as usual. As I waiting the result of entrance exam, i'v gaing more clear knowledge about the education in finland through you. My 1st Preferance is SAMK, Rauma, 2nd is JYVASKALA and the 3rd is TAMK, Tampere.Now, if i selected i want to go for TAMK, Tampere, then how does it possible to be selected by 3rd one by avoiding the 1st and 2nd preference.Furtherly, at your last post you wrote to a student that, "wait for the result of all UAS, before confirm any Uas" , this way if i got selected from all the UAS i can go for Tamk as my wish but, in a information kit in www.tamk.fi, they have mentioned that " If a student is selected by the UAS of 1st preference, he will not selected by other UAS (2ND , 3RD preference).in this case what do u want to suggest me.
Dear Friend, Thank you very much for your kind complements. The admission decision follows a quite simple process.
First, the result of your entrace will be shared by all of the cooperating colleges. But, all other options will wait until the admission decision of first option. So, in your case as well, both second and third option will wait for the decision of first option college. Now, the first option releases two kinds of decision confirmation list to its cooperating colleges through the Admission.fi network. First, The list of students most likely to be confirmed for admission (Accepted), Second, the list of alternative students whom they might consider (Waiting List). Meanwhile, every college prepares their own lists of their applied students. Now, before releasing the admission decision to public, they check the decision of upper options; for example, when your second option try to confirm you for admission, it first checks the list of Accepted students of your first option college. If your name is in the accepted list of first option college, the second option will not include your name on their accepted list. If your name is in waiting list of First option, second option confirms your admission and releases it, meanwhile it also notifies to first option so that, your name will be removed from the waiting list of first option college. If your name is rejected for first option, it does not matter to other colleges, other colleges might accept you. All these process is coordinated by Joint Application Network (www.admissions.fi) itself to minimize the multiple acceptance. But, you won't be notified about these intermediatory processes.
Now, if you want to go to your second option rather than first option, you mail your second option college that you would like to be accpeted on this college since you did not feel comfortable on first option college now. So, if you are in the waiting list of this second option college due to the acceptance of first option, it might coordinate with first option to be accpeted on second one rather than first one. But, remember, it will decrease your probability of being acceptance on first option since after this, first option will not be interested to include your name on its acceptance since you already notified second option is your primary preference now. And, it is not necessary that second option will certainly admit you. So, think about it before mailing them.
I wrote previously that wait untill all acceptance results publish. It is because sometimes there is probability of being acceptance on multiple as well. Following cases might lead you on multiple acceptance:
1. Suppose you are on the waiting list of all of the three colleges. Later, they confirmed that some of the accepted students are not coming so they decided you to promote you as accepted students. Since, it was being too late to release the acceptance, two or more colleges released your acceptance then only they coordinate with the cooperating colleges. In such cases, now the decision is upto you to choose the one college of your interest to confirm your seat. It is normal to be accpeted by multiple colleges, but you can not confirm your seat on more than college.
2. You applied to four colleges as four options, but they are not coordinating with each other for admission process. In this case, they deal individually and make admission decision separetely.
3. You applied to four colleges as four options, but your course or degree is different. So, they are not coordinating since you applied to different courses. So, it might also lead you for multiple acceptance. So, again, it is upto you to accept one of the college to confirm the seat.
For your particular case, I can suggest you, you keep on mailing your third option college, as asking about the status of the application but do not declare that you would like to come to this college. So, it will keep option open for all other colleges as well, at the same time you will be notified about the progress of your admission decision. If you found good response and more likely to be admitted on this third option, you declare to them as you are interested on this college only and would not want to wait for the result of first or second option college and request them to admit you since you are not seeking anymore admission from First or Second option.
Best of Luck.
