How horrible is all this....I'm sure this has been one of the longest weeks ever!

Any word from anybody waiting on RHUL?

Sorry to hear that Blue86. I'm desperately trying to think if I interviewed you and if so which one you were now!!!

Thank you, Astra. I'm not sure you did, because I was there Friday morning and I remember you saying you didn't interview that day? Last I heard I was no 6 or so on the list, so hoping that I am high enough on the Glasgow list to be considered.

It's a little like grasping at straws since this will most likely be the last time I can apply. I've wanted to be in this field since I was 14 and made quite a few sacrifices in that regard, so it's not going to be easy to let it go. I also know I'm not the only one in this position so I'm trying to keep that in perspective. It's been a tough week since all my close ones keep asking me about it, or making hints that it will all work out fine and I have no idea how to explain to them how this process really works. :( Oh well, I'm glad I have this wonderful community as a support. I don't know how I would've made it these past years without you. Just a few more days of waiting I guess.

1 :shock:

It's thrillingly close and yet I've been sitting in that spot for over a week now so it creeps ever further away!

I've received an e-mail from Lydia Stead regarding the Leeds list...all 16 people originally offered places accepted. So the reserve list only moved 2 places (from 2 on the reserve accepting elsewhere). Don't know if that makes it better or worse but thought I would share as I was intrigued myself.

Blue86 and Sprinkles!


I have accepted a place at Edinburgh and have hence withdrawn from the Glasgow reserve list. Maybe that will help a tiny bit---as we know, we DON'T know where on the list we are but I hope it helps you guys.

Just one more thing- I was the most unlikely candidate, messed up one interview so did not have much hope at all to get this. So just in case you had a similar feeling ---you honestly never know! All fingers crossed! :)

Congratulations!!
Thank you for the news. Apparently there is some movement on the final day. Since Glasgow doesn't rank it would be hard to tell where you were, but I'm glad it all worked out for you. Have fun celebrating this weekend :cheers:
