The wait has made me ever so fixated on my phone. I would check emails during the night half asleep then forget by the morning. Must learn to manage this better.
Good luck everyone going for interviews. UEA interview on monday.

I've lurked on this forum for a long time, so feels weird to be finally posting, but I think it's helpful to see the highs and lows of the application process for everyone. Good luck all!

Feeling incredibly fortunate with a large dose of imposter syndrome about these outcomes. For people following this thread I think it's important to know that I'm a slightly older applicant who as I said above, waited a number of years before applying. Good luck to everyone!

Hello!

Good luck to all those who have had interviews or preparing for upcoming ones! Just wanted to know if anyone knows about movement for interviews for Glasgow? I'm a reserve for interview, but as I haven't been called yet, not sure if it's worth preparing much for an interview that may not happen!

For anyone who has been in this position in the past for Glasgow, do they tend to call you during the week of interviews? Is there much notice? It would be good to get a day's notice! Thanks :)

I would say it's always best to prep as if you have an interview. Such prep is never wasted and you could get called at very short notice. Whilst courses like to give people adequate notice, this is not always possible and it has been known for people to be called on the day!
