This reserve list malarky is making me go slightly mad
Me too Freudianslip..me too. Stick in there and try and stay cool.. 8) Not long to go and then all reservers will know either way!

Fingers crossed :)

What a day! My one and only interview at Lancaster today. Just had a call to say No3 on the reserve list.
I had a feeling I had messed up the presentation panel but did well on the interview so was expecting reserve list, its still hard though.
Anyone turning down a Lancaster offer?? Or may be 3?? :lol:
Congratulations to everyone with offers :D

I also had my only interview at Lancaster and I'm 2nd on the reserve list.
I would be eternally grateful to two people who could potentially turn down Lancaster! ;-)

Congratulations to those who got on.

Thrilled to be able to update with:

Edinburgh
Lancaster :D
Sheffield
Trent

Apologies to those on the reserve list, but I'll definitely be accepting my Lancaster offer! Good luck though, there may be people with multiple offers who'll decide to go elsewhere.

Oh my God...

Surrey
Salomons
Plymouth

Lancaster!!!!!

Had my (first and only) interview today and thought it was a disaster. Am in shock to the extent it feels more like bad news than good at the minute!

Finally. It's amazing to be able to write this...

Oxford - Oxford ('upper reserve')
Southampton - Southampton (number 5)
Royal Holloway - Royal Holloway - ROYAL HOLLOWAY
Surrey (after selection test)

I can't believe it - finally I have a place on training!

The above are listed in my order of preference, so I am going to wait out til the bitter end for movement on the reserve lists, but regardless, I am thrilled to have a place on the clinical psychology doctorate!

Thanks Gem2010; I guess the worst thing about being on reserve is that the waiting is not over... I started looking for other jobs but can't put my heart into it as cannot give up hope before 15 June. Arghhh...
