That happens a lot more than people think to be honest. People have been reserve list for a place and then not been invited to an interview the following year. Course criteria changes, different applicants and numbers..the list could probably go on. I wouldn't take it personally.

Fantastic news lp22 and butterfly123. Just had an email from Manchester too. I'm on the reserve list. Quite pleased really as I was thinking it would be a straight no. Not expecting too much as Manchester is one of the first places to interview. Oh well, nice to be considered.
Second year of applying and so far;
Leicester
Manchester
Birmingham
Staffordshire

This is my fifth year of applying, graduated in 2007, 8 years of AP/RA experience, and a MSc. Nearly gave up last year after a rejection after one interview, and the feedback in return didn't really give me anything to work on!! I'm glad I didn't give up though.

Sheffield :D
Manchester (as always! Oh well)
Leeds
Liverpool

Congratulations to all those with interviews and reserves! Commiserations to those with reds! Take care of yourselves, and cry it all out if you can or celebrate. :)

Well done those with greens I was thinking it was a bit of a red wash for a while!

Nads I know what you mean about changes in criteria etc, I just had a terrible experience last year so was interested to see how it played out this time around.
Fingers crossed to all of us still waiting I hope you're looking after yourselves

Its not a predictable system. I had two interviews one year and assumed / hoped they would invite me back the next year and neither did. Was sad times. But a different uni did. Lets see what happens this time....

Was it a yes email?
It was a reserve for interview email - work with 2 others who have applied but no emails to them yet so they must be sending them in batches. In the email it says they will also sent out letters shortly.
In my email I was informed I was short-listed for interview which would take place the last week of March.
I was also told I would receive, early next week, another email saying which date I was allocated for the interview.

It sounds like I'm in a similar position to you Bubbly. I graduated in 2006, 9 years experience, an MSc, accredited CBT therapist, EMDR practitioner, accredited IPT practitioner, have a publication in the pipeline and no Manchester interview. This is my first year of applying because up until now I have been quite happy plodding down a therapy route and expanding my skills but I'm not sure I want to be doing only therapy for the next 30 years! CP's have a lot more diversity in their role.

Manchester
Liverpool
Lancaster

Fingers crossed for the others! Congrats to those who have got interviews!
