Good luck to all of you x
Thanks urmaserendipity and many congrats on your offer, I'm sure the excitement hasn't worn off just yet! :D

Anyone else just want to know? Feels like we've been left right till the end (oh yes we have actually!). Can't take another week of waiting! :shock:

How's everyone else's interviews gone?

I know how you feel - I felt relieved that it was over yesterday but today I'm back to feeling nervous and just want to know either way! I have no idea how Edinburgh went, but I'm just crossing my fingers! How about you?

it feels like torture! I had mine on Monday and it feels so long ago that I've been waiting now!

Am i right in thinking clearing house deadline for letting us know is next friday so it should be by then?

Mine was on Wednesday and that's been bad enough, must feel even worse for you! :?

I was wondering about the deadline too - I'd guess they'll do their best to send them out in time for it, but who knows?! Glasgow finished interviewing on the friday and we had the letters the following Wednesday I think so hopefully Edinburgh will be as efficient!

The clearing house deadline is 5th June. That's 2 weeks today but I would guess that you'll know by the end of next week. Fingers crossed for you all xx

scrap that, having a blonde moment. 5th june is when you have to accept/decline by. 29th May (a week today) is the deadline they have to let you know by

hey jen i'm not sure. I thought it went well and I gave a good account of myself and i was way more relaxed and confident than glasgow, but i have no idea whether it's enough to get in this year or whether they'll think another year of experience would do me good. I'm in the same boat as vars, been waiting since monday, i was the second interview of the week so it's been pretty agonising...my current contract runs out in 6 weeks too so it would be nice to know whether I need to start looking for a full time or temporary job! x

Well that sounds positive :) Good luck! I know what you mean about the wanting to know - my PhD funding runs out at the end of next month and I wish I knew what sort of job I need to start looking for!

I'm right there with you helloimnew! I can't believe its another week of feeling like this. I'm becoming less confident as the time goes on. Can't stop focussing on all the bad parts of my interview! :oops:
