Phoned the admin lady, and they gave nothing away - said that we will hear this week. I heard that they were sent out last night so as there has been nothing in the post today I am assuming letters will be delivered tomorrow. Hopefully! Good Luck :D

Oh thanks for the info! I had my interview on the first day too! Been checking everyday to find out whether they sent anything! so have you heard that its going to be sent my post rather than email? Thanks, big good luck to all!!

This is really starting to drive me insane! What day of interviews were you on? Im getting to the point now when Ive gone past caring if I have a place, I just want to know so I can move on with life :) Its my first year applying, and first ever interview so I'm not holding much hope.
Tell me about it!! I was interviewed on Tuesday. Holding a similar attitude: Not got high hopes - first year applying and first ever interview. I just want to know already!! lol. How did you find the day?


jitterbug wrote:Hello all - so glad to hear from some aspiring Trent people. I had my interview last week on Tuesday after being hauled from the reserve list a mere 7 days before the event. I have to say this waiting game is the very worst bit - it's so hard not to get really frustrated! I asked for my letter to be sent to a certain address and got a reply from the administrator yesterday at around 5 so I don't think my letter will have been posted until today at the earliest. Like others I'm almost past caring - I have other things in my life I need to organise! Rude! :D
Yeah, I havent seen many posts from people who have been interviewed by Trent! I was there on Tuesday too :-) the waiting game is not healthy for my body-haha! I know they sent the letters Tuesday eve, so they may have still sent yours but not got round to contacting you until yesterday?

Lets hope they are delivered today!! :D

Post just arrived. Final results:

Sheffield > Sheffield
Manchester
Leeds > Leeds
Shrops & Staffs > Shrops & Staffs

Ouch.

There was a little feedback in the letter, but I'm not sure whether 'self-contained' was a compliment or not...

Oh well, at least the Edinburgh interview gave me a practice before Lancaster!

REALLY?? My post comes around 1? How can the letter still not arrive? It's pretty unfair I think! i have looked on clearing house and I have now changed from 'Selected for Interview' to 'Pending Result'. I darent check again in case I see a big fat REJECTION! This is my first year applying, really didnt think I would feel this wound up. :cry:

No way!! I was relying on the fact they would be here today! I cant do another day-haha!! Where in the country are you? My post never arrives before 2pm which is unfortunate.

My clearing house says the same, but I dont think that will mean one outcome or another....I hope...I darent check it now either, lol!!

If they posted Tues (last post) and used second class stamps it could still be tomorrow ... It is definitely the not knowing that is winding me up! They know the result but I don't! Annoying!

My post varies it arrives anytime between 9am and 2pm - I think two postmen job share on my route. Even though I wouldn't be able to open it until I got home after work just knowing it was there and that I wouldn't have to wait another day would have been enough! I am in Lincolnshire.

Oh fellow Trent hopefuls how I feel your pain!!! I too was pinning hopes on the letters arriving today :roll: . As soon as I get home this afternoon I will check. My clearing house account says 'pending result' which from what I understand it means just that - there's no particular significance and it could turn out to be a rejection, a reserve or a place. But now I will obviously be checking it every five minutes waiting for it to change...

Totally the most stressful experience ever especially since someone out there knows my fate!!!

I'm so glad I only got one interview - I can't imagine having to do this 4 times over!!!

Fingers crossed people. :?

So....i avoided the thread and checking the post for a few days as I wanted to concentrate on my liverpool interview......logged on last night and what did i see "pending result" pffffttttt.....was in disbelief to find STILL NO SHROPS RESULTS!!!!!!how very frustrating (after all my dedicated avoidance :? )

Any one else heard or have any factual info on the supposed arrival date of the dreaded letter.

CHIN UP TO ALL THOSE STILL WAITING :)
