Alas two reds so far, so it may be moot for me.

When responses started to come out, I briefly forgot that I'm woefully under-experienced, and that I didn't even want to apply this year in the first place, and started thinking "I'll definitely get an interview!".

Re: The Progress Thread for 2013 Applications

I really appreciate the feedback from Coventry and Warwick. I thought I was weak in not having any clinical experience as I have only worked as a Research RA. Has anyone asked for feedback for rejections before shortlisting at other universities before? Coventry & Warwick Plymouth Royal Holloway Sou...

Re: New Clinical Doctorate Applications 2012-2013.

Re: Applying with GAD

I think you should not tie yourself to anxiety as a focus/specialty just because you have experience of it.

Religion

I am consider myself somewhere between a lapsed Buddhist and a nondenominational meditator. Should I put Buddhist as my religion? I have attended zen or chan buddhist groups for most of my adult life, but am not currently.

Re: Open Uni refusing to complete online reference

What they have given you sounds more like a transcript than a reference.
