Re: Reserve list for places 2016

Well I'm a big fan of "it ain't over till it's over", so don't give up hope yet, but even if it isn't your time this year you have done amazingly well and although it might not be the exact outcome that you wanted you should be pretty proud of that. I've still got my fingers crossed for you :) .

Re: Leeds 2016 interviews

Hi All, So after a bit of soul searching and some serious looking at the practicalities, I've just accepted my place at Edinburgh so unfortunately I will miss out on training with you lovely people :( . I am however sure that whoever takes my spot from the reserve will be just as lovely and you will...

Re: Leeds 2016 interviews

Oh no Alamont I'm sorry you haven't heard, I know a couple of people in that position and it must be horrible, I think it's poor form of Edinburgh not to tell everyone at roughly the same time. Dentitiex you certainly have to do what's right for you and I understand your difficulty, I'm also pretty ...

Thanks Stenbot, I found out by email but I don't think they have released all their results yet as I know some people haven't had anything.

Re: Leeds 2016 interviews

Hi All,

How goes the decision making Dentitex?

I just found out I was offered a place at Edinburgh ( :shock: :D ), I'm way too overwhelmed to make a decision straight away but will let you know as soon as I do. Sorry to keep you in suspense Randomswirls :? .

Re: Turned down interviews

I feel your pain ScotPsych and GooeyLou I was on the reserve list for interview at Edinburgh last year and was never called, I don't know if it helps but I know of at least one person this year who has cancelled their Edinburgh interview after getting a place on the Glasgow course and I know some pe...

Re: Leeds 2016 interviews

I think I was a bit shellshocked during the interviews Alamont and they ran together so quickly being first in that I didn't really speak to anybody when I was there but we might have seen each other, I was wearing a cream blazer with dark hair if that helps? I think Leeds is very tempting too, they...

Re: Leeds 2016 interviews

At Glasgow I was first thing on the Tuesday morning so I was the very first to go in, I found it a really stressful set up after Leeds had been so welcoming so I was pleased with a reserve place on what was not my best performance. It is certainly stressful not knowing where you are but Edinburgh wo...

Re: Leeds 2016 interviews

Sushi I think I met you? I spoke with someone who lived in Edinburgh that day - I think we might have waited for our service user panel together (I was last in that group). I was from London and had a suitcase with me! Hi Random, yep that would be me, congratulations on the reserve place :)! Alamon...

Re: What experience did you have when you got on training?

I’m very very happy to finally be able to post on this thread :shock: :D ; I found it both really useful and really frustrating looking at this at times but in honour of the helpful times here is my journey so far.

Re: Leeds 2016 interviews

Congratulations everyone :D . I interviewed at Leeds on the Wednesday morning (8:30am group, maybe I met you randomswirls) and have been offered a place but I also have another interview at Edinburgh to go to before making a decision. I currently live in Edinburgh so that would be easiest logistical...

Re: Becoming a service manager – relevant experience ?

Hi Msc22 This does sound like a tricky decision, it can be really difficult to know what direction to take on the meandering career path to the clinical doctorate but I feel like letting you know a little of my experience might help in this case. After my undergraduate degree I worked as a support w...
