Reserve list for places

Post by Hockeygirl » Wed Apr 22, 2015 9:15 am

Hi all,

I was getting mighty confused on the reserve list thread so I thought I would start a new one for places, so we have one for interviews and one for places.

I'm currently on the Teesside reserve list for a place. No idea where!

Currently on Exeter reserve list for a place. Same boat though, no idea how long it is or where I am on it, just know that it moved a couple of places last year.

Excellent idea!

I'm on the Leicester reserve. Started at no. 5 and I'm now at no. 3 (It moved 2 places in 24 hours then hasn't moved for 2 weeks :cry: ).

Not sure whether knowing the number helps really, it very much leaves a feeling of "so close, yet so far!!" considering they have quite a small cohort and rumour has it is got to number 4 last year. eek.

Good luck fellow place reserves!! :D

The Bangor list has definitely moved by one place today, so good luck to all on the reserve! :)

Hi,

To echo the sentiments already, good idea for a separate group! I'm also on the reserve for Manchester. Does anyone know if it has moved at all?

I saw on the progress thread that 1 person has been offered a place. Not sure about it since then... fingers crossed!

Hi,

Thanks for the reply Moonbeam :) I'm not too find of this limbo place at all!

On another note, I didn't apply to Exeter but just to inform others who did, a friend of mine was offered a place on their course yesterday. He was on reserve but (like the Manchester process) was not told where on the list he was. Anyway, it all worked out well, lucky him. :)

I'm on the Surrey reserve, pretty much at the bottom though (24) so not much hope here! Not sure if it helps or not knowing the number! :roll: Good luck to all other reserve-ers x

This is the kind of information that feels like it should somehow be helpful and yet when I think about it isn't at all because of the not knowing where on the list I am. Count me as another one not enjoying her time in limbo land. Wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have another 3-4 weeks before Birmingham results are released!

Happy for your friend though :mrgreen: Exeter was a great course to interview at, and such a pretty campus.

I didn't realise that Birmingham took so long to respond to candidates?! I was relying on them to see some potential movement for my list!

owhhh, I need out of this limbo, I can't take it anymore! :cry:

Don't be tempted by the withdraw button! :)

I'm a reserve at Oxford. Seen two people say they have offers in the progress thread and interviews elsewhere but nothing further. Anyone heard anything from friends etc?

Unfortunately yes, we were told at interview that they aren't meeting to discuss the results of interviews until May 14th and said it will likely take at least a week from then before we hear, so urged people not to call for information before the 21st. There were many shocked and disappointed faces in the room at that point I can tell you, I think all of us were expecting it would be more like a couple of weeks.
