Sorry to hear that Magrat. Always a dissapointment to get a rejection. Hope you are not feeling too bad.

I think you are right re. movement after Edinburgh. Uncertain times :?

Reserve list for me too. Not sure I can handle so much more waiting! :?
Do you think it's worth contacting them to ask where about on the list we are?

Well done to the reserve lits and sorry margaret, I'm in the same boat. Does anyone else feel the self-doubt kicking in? Better perk up before Edinburgh or else it won't go very well! :?

I already have Jen and they said they can't tell us anything. What would be people's guess as to how many people are generally put on reserve lists?

I didn't realise you'd tried already. How annoying, it's so hard to know how to feel isn't it? :?

Oh and thanks! I just feel a bit odd about it all as I was expecting to know for certain either way, it's disconcerting! :lol:

just so people know, I spoke to my supervisor and she mentioned about the possible extra places for G and E. Seemingly CAMHS have got some money and so are able to take more trainees. There's meant to be an urgent meeting between heads of services to decide whether they can manage to fit in more this year or whether it'll have to wait til next year. The extra places will be for both G and E although don't know how many there will be. So it may well affect G reserve lists as they realise they can take on more trainees, and Edinburgh may be able to offer more places outright. Will let you know if I hear any more
Well done to those with places/reserve list and good luck to those still waiting to hear/waiting to have interviews

Thanks for the info urma! FIngers crossed they can fund the extra places for this year!
Thanks vars, cant believe we have to KEEP waiting but it's better than I was expecting.
Not sure about phoning for feedback, maybe worth a shot?

Hi,

Sorry to everyone with rejections (ive been there too this year) and congratulations to everyone on reserve! I'm also on reserve! Seems like there are quite a lot of us! :D
