First time applying so both excited (allowed myself a small fist pump) and apprehensive (allowed myself a brief moment of ahhh of course my interview is 9am on the 14th March -.-) to report a green! :mrgreen:

Leicester
Staffordshire
Trent
Sheffield


Good luck everybody - well done for all of these greens coming in and love to all of the reds too.

:cyclops:

I'm waiting on Exeter and South Wales as well as Lancaster and Southampton.

Hopefully we'll both hear something soon

In the same boat - but thanks for making me laugh out loud, feeling really in tune with my client's hypervigilance!!

Let's see how Leics reserve list moves. Conscious that it's during the first week though!
You'd be surprised by how much 1st week interviews can move sometimes! :) I don't know about Leicester, but I know one of the early ones moved 13 last year. It's a great result anyway and not at all out of the realm of possibility. Congrats!
That's interesting Answeringbell, fingers crossed as I'm quite high up on the reserves :). Do people happen to know whether Leicester lets you know another about their interview day? They didn't provide any extra information on the letter for my reserve place, but would be helpful to know as I will have to do some 'just in case' revision! Thanks

What an emotional roller coaster this process is! Just when despair followed from my first red I get a green so want to encourage all those still waiting not to give up hope. God luck everyone :o)

Don't suppose you'd take a bribe for that interview place. ;) :lol:
Hi Moony - Sure, as long as your bribe includes unlimited personal training from Jessie Pavelka, a liftime supply of Green & Black's chocolate (which indicates why I need personal training!), an alternative career option and an apricot cockapoo puppy thrown in for good measure!!

Will be keeping my fingers crossed that the list moves and hope you get the interview.

I can't even be envious of your interview any more, you seem too nice. Those are the best bribe requests I've ever seen! A PT, quality chocolate and a puppy. I couldn't give you those bribes (even if I could arrange them!) because I'd want them too much myself.

Good luck with the interview(s)! Will keep my fingers crossed that list moves! Bath would be amazing :)

me too!! I'm waiting on Leeds, Newcastle and Teesside. I've seen other people waiting on Leeds but haven't seen anyone else saying they've applied for Newcastle or Teesside

I'm trying to reframe my thinking for the next 8 days. Rather than fretting and stressing about when the courses are going to let us know, I'm going to try to enjoy this period when I can happily believe that Oxford [or insert other uni here] really want to interview me :lol: . A "no" is so definitive, but a "maybe" can be positive! My Canadian colleagues are all very impressed when they hear that I have applied to Oxford and I don't want to spoil it for them by getting a rejection :D
