    I finished my UCAS application and I am waiting for my welcome letter that contains the application number in order to "log into track".
    My question is... will I have the option to choose my preferred university if I get accepted in more than one from my selection or will UCAS decide for me?

    You mean out of the six you have chosen? You have to put a 1st choice and then 2nd choice. IIRC you HAVE to go to your 1st choice if you get the grades required grades. Its been a few years since I did it so I might be mistaken.

    My choices have been listed alphabetically by the institution code and I didn't see a way to list them by preference... and my first choice (M80) came last that way :(

    They're still taking applications for 08 entry? wow.
    What happened when I submitted mine (in october 05 for starting sept 06) was I got interviews from 5 out of 6, the 6th gave me a straight offer, and once all of them had given me an offer (or just made a decision) you got a deadline, for me it was sometime in may after all offers came in in january. You could either reject them all (go through clearing), accept just one, or take an insurance and a firm offer.
    If you meet the firm offer you must go there, and if you miss the firm but manage the insurance you must go to the insurance (not certain about the last point).
    In a nutshell, you don't need to do anything until they have all replied to you - Good Luck
