Still can't quite believe this ... but I have a blue! 3rd time applying :D

Didn't dare call Sheffield until my interview at Manchester was done today :shock:

Leicester
UEA

Manchester

Sorry for the browns (crappy colour lol!), I know how that feels, lots of luck for your others :)

Congratulations spareclaire-well done!!! Did you interview at Manchester today? I wonder if we were there at the same time, I was there from 12.15 (interviewed at 14.25)

Leeds
Manchester
Sheffield
Trent

Somewhat unexpected to say the least!
Also put off calling Sheffield until Manchester was done.

Sorry to see those browns :(

Sad and not surprised to report:

Leicester
Staffordshire
Trent
Sheffield


Good luck everybody! Reds / Browns - see you next year. It's all a learning curve.

So, more uncertainty for me to tolerate!

Leicester
So here is to crossing all my fingers and toes that some lucky people get offers that are closer/at places they prefer!!

Definitely trying to stay positive. Congratulations to others with offers/ reserves!

So after 3 years of not a single interview this year I got offered two interviews and am over the moon to say......
Leicester!!!

As Leicester was my first choice I will be accepting (probably immediately and far too excitedly!) and cancelling my interview at Coventry. So if you're on a reserve list for Coventry for interview - you just got one space closer! :)

Just wanted to give a bit of hope to those who didn't get anything this year! This has been the case for me as well for the previous 3! But perseverance has paid off. Keep trying if you can!

Off to celebrate for a blissful 4 day weekend!
