Same for me.. All hope on Herts but not optimistic as I got no interview with them last year.

I can't wait until today is over and I can know either way about my last course (Edinburgh) and stop obsessing over my inbox.

This is my third application.

2014
UCL
Royal Holloway
IoPPN

Edinburgh

2015
UCL
Oxford

UEL
Edinburgh (didn't get called up in the end)

2016
UCL (you'd think I'd have learned!!!)
Bath
UEL
Edinburgh...

I also have the worst luck it seems. Less than a week before my Edinburgh interview in 2014 I was hit by a bus as I crossed the road and still had stitches in my scalp when I travelled up to interview.

Last year I had emergency surgery less than a week before my UEL interview and spent most of the day trying not to throw up my painkillers and antibiotics.

This year. I'm staying indoors. In a zorb ball. For my own safety. ;) Third year lucky I hope!!

Just popped home in my lunch break to check the post & no letter from Hertfordshire so looks like those still waiting will be receiving an email by the end of the day.

First time application but I graduated in 2011. Well done to all of the greens and sorry for the reds. It is such a disheartening feeling.
Congrats LeanneL! I'm still waiting on my Coventry letter- didn't get any post yesterday and our postman comes really late so trying not to think about it as I won't get in until about 5pm!


Thanks Esme,

Good luck with your letter do let me know :D
I am lucky that my boyfriend is off work today so he phoned me and let me know. Although he did do the fake "I'm really sorry to announce..." I could have killed him. :shock:

Oh my gosh! Does he not understand the tension? He owes you a bottle of wine (or tipple of your choice!)
Mine is unfortunately at work today and I have a client appointment at 3pm so can't even finish early. Shame I haven't managed to teach the dog to open mail... or make phone calls...

Good point, I really do not think that he understands the tension! He is actually babysitting tonight (we have a two year old) so that I can go to the pub with my friend and "reflect" on the whole process so I win I suppose.

And if you could teach your dog those things you would possibly be in the wrong profession ha ha. That sucks about 3 though. I have (unfortunately for my manager) mentally checked out for the week. I work in a rehab unit so I am working on next weeks activity plans and putting in outrageous day trips! Good Luck!!!!

Thought I would wait until all of mine were out:

Herts
Surrey
UEA
Salomons (1st reserve)

Second application, feeling really disappointed as felt my application was strong this year. Fingers crossed for Salomons though, hopeful being first reserve I at least have a chance at interview, they say it only takes one! Good luck to everyone else.
