That is strange and must be so frustrating!! I hope you get some clarity today - good luck! Harsh is apt!

I did hear back this morning - thank you for your reply.

It feels relieving to finally know - it's amazing what anxiety can do to just make things feel really bleak! I found out that I am second on the reserve list for Bath - I have everything crossed but I know it's likely to be a while yet before I have any certainty!

I caved and contacted Surrey in the end earlydaze. It turns out they did send all the emails out on Monday but not all of them went through! So I'd recommend giving them a call; they were really lovely about it. :) Best of luck!

Right, that's me done with this process!

UEL---------> UEL
Salomons--> Salomons
UCL--------> UCL
RHUL-------> Withdrew from reserve list for interview

And after long deliberation I will be accepting the place at UEL so Salomons' reserve list should move as well as the RHUL list for interview. Thank you to everyone sharing info and providing support on this forum, it has made a big difference in this long, difficult process! Good luck everyone!

I can second this! The interviewers, the current trainees, the Learning Together Group and all the other applicants were all so lovely and welcoming! As someone who had their first ever clinical interview here on Tuesday, I can honestly say that Lancaster really made me feel welcome, comfortable, and not at all like a newbie desperately begging for their dream job (which I definitely felt like). Can't wait for the result!!

Good luck to everyone who applied, you were all lovely :)

Hello,

This is my first year applying and my progress looks like this:
Birmingham
Sheffield
Staffordshire
Trent

I'm reserve number 8, so I'm not holding out too much hope, but the experience was great and I got much further than I expected to! Best of luck to you all! :D

Lancaster!!

So happy and a little in shock I think! This was my first time applying and I wasn't sure what to expect so I am amazed to have gotten this far.

I really felt that I clicked with the Lancaster ethos. Everyone was so welcoming and warm on the day and really made the process much more bearable. I can't wait to accept my place :D :D

Congrats! I also really clicked with the Lancaster ethos, and am similarly new to the system.
Lancaster was also the only place I applied to this year - so I'm amazed to have made the reserve list!

LANCASTER!!

I'm fairly high up, so hopefully I'll make it onto the course this year (and maybe see you in Sept!)

Royal Holloway
Surrey
Southampton - 6th
Exeter - withdrew

Exeter no longer have placements in the Dorset area so I made the difficult decision to withdraw from my interview (the commute would not have been manageable with 2 young children).

All my eggs now in one basket - the torture of the reserve list continues... :?

Newcastle
Exeter

Plymouth
Lancaster
:cry:
This is my first year aplying and I am totally rubbish at selling myself in interviews. I am looking forward to receiving feedback because am not entirely sure where I went wrong. I'll apply again for (probably just) Lancaster next year and hope that I can do better...

All I know is that I'm in the 'upper reserve' for Oxford, not holding out too much hope! Does anyone know of any movement? Thanks! :)
