I am soooooo happy to have gotten a reserve now it's the wait!!! I'm 8th on the reserve for Herts... If anyone knows of any movement please let me know!!! I know it's not a big chance I'll get on (with only 16 places for Herts) but I am over the moon nonetheless!!
You'll be 7th when I take myself off the reserve list :) I'm still a bit scared that this offer from Birmingham might be some terrible mix up so I'm a bit worried about taking myself off of Herts before the proper letter arrives in the post! :shock:
Okay amazing... just 7 more to go ahhhhh :@:

Congratulations on getting a place at Birmingham- I'm sure it's not a terrible mix up!!! I did my undergrad there and it was an amazing uni!
I love Birmingham uni, I've done 4 years there so far (undergrad and MRes) and I can't wait to go back!

End of my application cycle:

Bath
Salomons (interview declined)
Surrey (offer declined)
Plymouth (offer accepted)


Pleased to be going to Plymouth, although I struggled with the choice between there and Surrey.

Last year I didn't get any interviews so hopefully some encouragement to those who didn't this year :D

UCL -----> UCL

Third year applying, delighted with the result! I am planning to accept UCL, so the Salomons reserve list should move by a place in the next few days, and an interview at King's should also become available. Good luck everyone!

It's so frustrating my letter hasn't come even though I live in London. Another day of waiting! :(

BATH

This is my 8th or 9th year of applications and after I dont know how many rejections and reserves, many of which have been quite high reserves, I have finally cracked it! Bath has always been my first choice so I will be withdrawing from my Liverpool interview and RH reserve list as soon as I get something in writing! Look forward to meeting any other Bath Trainees in Sept/Oct.

Best of luck to everyone, its a hard and sometimes very gruelling process.

Congrats! Great to hear you got on :)

C'mon UEL! I'm there tomorrow. It only takes one.

I'm

UCL
Bath --> Bath (they decided not to use their reserve list in the end!)
Edinburgh (C'mon reserve list, get moving!)
and UEL
so I'm pinning all my hopes on this one too. I was on the reserve list for Edinburgh last year too and didn't get called, so not getting my hopes up this year...

We can do it!

Newcastle

Don't imagine that list will move much though!
