Hey Spatch - Really interested in this topic you are 'researching' :lol: ...

Hey everyone

I phoned Edinburgh yesterday and explained I was giving my place up - they asked for me to put in writing - so I wrote an email 5pm tonight.

So hopefully - someone will get contacted tomorrow - my interview was scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

Fingers crossed for you :D

For this reason I was hoping that you may be able to outline the difference between a theory and a model. A great deal of us w...

Hi...

I have an interview for the central area - Lanarkshire, Lothian and State hospital -
Glasgow is my first choice - so if I am successful there - I will be phoning Edinburgh right away to free up a space for someone else.
Good luck

Hi... Found out today that I got a reserve for Oxford. I must admit I'm really upset that I've let myself and my family down. I did something really stupid; and feel I've thrown such an important opportunity away. But I did feel a lot of pressure (mostly from myself) to know certain things that I ha...
