I cant figure out how to embed this gif in the thread, but saw it online and thought of you all.

Only one more day until the waiting is over, then a weekend of doing nice things for ourselves to recover.

2014
UEL
UCL

RHUL (after a reserve list place of 14)
Oxford

2015
UCL
IoP

UEL (reserve list place of 12, so I reckon it might as well be UEL)
RHUL

Fingers crossed for RHUL tomorrow. Between the UEL and Terry Pratchett's death, it's been a really rough day.

Good luck for tomorrow Serendipity. I don't know much about the UEL course but I was just reading a thread about reserve lists and it seems they are really variable year on year so you just never know! Good luck!

I did a forum search for "UEL and reserve" and found a 2012 post from someone saying she was number 8 or 9 on the list and was called to interview...what number are you?

I got home to find my Plymouth letter unopened in the bin! My boyf mixed up our letters thinking it was his junk mail and chucked it in before throwing food on top... When he called to see how I had fared, I had to go digging :!: but ironically, thats where it belonged anyway! Lovely Ha! :|
This is one of the best rejection letter stories I have ever heard! (although I would much rather have heard an interview offer story :wink: )

Ah thank you ell :) ...I'd shake your hand...but you know^ :oops:

Less than 12 hours until we can all know where we stand. So glad it's finally D-day. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear back. Don't know about you but I'm planning on cake, gin and spending times with good friends this weekend!

Good luck to everyone who is waiting to hear today. It's been a stressful wait but it's nearly over now. I think it takes courage and determination to pursue this career, to name a few, and are great traits to have. So although there may be bad news for people today I think that is a positive to take from this experience.

All the best,
Nads

I'm not sure what's making me more nervous:
the impending news or my impending dental appointment :|

Congratulations to everyone who applied, regardless of outcome. I completely agree, it takes a great deal of courage and perseverence in this application process and I am willing to bet each one of us deserves a place. Here's to the future!

So final day everyone- hope you all have something lovely planned for the celebrations/commiseratons for tonight. Was hoping to know from all my courses by now but still nothing from Staffs, although I'm happy to say I am so far:
Trent
Leicester
Sheffield

Not sure how this has happened but feeling pretty :D right now!!
