Just received a call from Southampton!

UEA
Manchester
Surrey
Southampton

Now a difficult decision needs to be made :?
Congratulations on getting 2 offers! 😀 How do you think you will decide? Always difficult making a decision between 2 courses.
Thank you :)

It's a really tough decision, particularly because Southampton and UEA appear to have similar values. UEA would be much better financially, because I could start living at home and would be able to save for a mortgage. It's also near my family and I love Norfolk. However, Southampton is much closer to my partner.

Still haven't decided :? I'm going to give myself a couple of weeks at most, and then take the plunge!
Oh wow, that’s a difficult decision. I hope that it hasnt hindered on how amazing it is to get on to the course(s).
Good luck in making a decision - I’m sure whatever you chose will be the right one for you 😊

UEL
Surrey

So happy to find out that I got a place at Surrey! Have not decided yet whether to still go to the interview at UEL. Surrey is better location wise and I had such a positive experience on the interview day.

Congratulations to everyone who has a place and good luck for next year for those who haven't got a place this year.
Congratulations!
Finally got on at Surrey too 🙌🙌
That's amazing! Congratulations! Which day did you interview? Will you be accepting your place?
I will be :)
I interviewed on the Monday 8th :)

Exeter

Very pleased that the Cardiff reserve list has moved and I've been offered a place! I'm still considering my options and whether to go to my Lancaster interview but it would be great to get in touch with some people who might also be starting at Cardiff :)

Congratulations! It’s a big decision so it’s always good to consider your options!

I’m also on the reserve list for Plymouth (#3) so hoping it can move!

Thank you Tulip, and congratulations on your reserve offer! I'm reserve 7 for Plymouth so it wont have any effect on you, but I'll be posting in the forums here when I make my final decision :)

Thank you! Also I wasn’t trying to support for my benefit :lol: . I have found it really informative going to the interviews to get a feel for the different courses, and their ‘vibe’. As well as considering moving as well.

I live and work in South Wales so if you want any info let me know :)

No worries, it didn't come across that way at all :) it's nice to get that validation to take my time as I definitely know people who don't understand why I would go to any more interviews than I need to!

I'm lucky that I did my undergrad at South Wales so it's familiar territory :) best of luck with the reserve list and any other interviews you have left!
