Thanks, I was there on Tuesday and was in the last group to be interviewed. How about you? I've got one London interview to go (it's a better location for me) but I loved everything about the Bath course so I need to sleep on it before deciding. Am still too surprised and delighted to be making coherent decisions today. Well done again!

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.


Congratulations to you both!! Looking forward to seeing you both in September now we will have have the same teaching day!
Also Pixie, I was one of the buddies on Tuesday who gave the presentation, you were all lovely, so glad a tuesdayer has made it!!

Thanks, the buddies and staff were fab and really created a really great impression of Bath. I was expecting the interview day to be intense but actually really enjoyed how relaxed it was (learning about Tuna the dog was a particular highlight!)

I don't mind sharing my experience to balance things out a little.

2015
Teesside > Teesside > Teesside

2016
Teesside > Teesside
Newcastle > Newcastle

Just goes to show there is absolutely no guarantee of improvement year on year! Newcastle first years, I have to say you were fantastic on interview day and really put me at ease and distracted me from the process, thank you so much! I reluctantly had a plan B lined up which I'm now going to get stuck into so that's the end of DClinpsy for me. Best of luck everyone, keep going!!

Everyone at work keeps asking what I'm doing to celebrate, so far the only plan is pub dinner with my Dad tonight! But it is my birthday next weekend so I'm thinking just mega celebrations then....might have actually sunk in by then too!

Hi All,

Congratulations to those posting success, commiserations and hugs to those who just missed out. It's a really difficult and emotional experience. I've certainly thought the worst things about myself through this whole malarky.

But, some good news after a few years of trying.

Bath
Cardiff
Exeter -----Exeter
Oxford

I hope I've done the colour thingies right....Anyway I'm taking the weekend to have a think and receive my offer in writing before making my decision - so someone on the reserve list for one of these is gonna be happy!

Good luck to those still going for interviews!

Congratulations to everyone who has secured places and reserve offers. I'm in the later with reserve place offers - Essex 7th and UEA (who knows!)

Has anyone had a rejection email from Bath?
Does Pavlov ring a bell?
