    I really should keep paying more attention to this, i miss out on a fair bit when i don't!
    Hahaha, I was like that, now I'm on here daily to see if people update anything.

    Anyway, Leeds (Masters) is going to be my firm and Reading (Masters) my insurance (this is if both interviews go to plan of course!)
    What's everyone else putting as their firm and insurance, also, what days are people visiting reading and leeds?
    I'm the same as you with choices but i had my interview with leeds last october, was amazing The interviewer (think i had steven dobbie) was really nice and they make you feel really at home and welcome.
    For Reading i'm going for the second open day, early february from memory. how about you?
    Do you have faceboook? If so add me http://www.facebook.com/ThomasOrton94

    Cheers Tom

    They just want to know if your motivated and you didnt lie in your personal statement, and have a bit of a chat with them about meteorology theyre not trying to trip you up or pressure you, they just want to know if your the right person for the course.

    And yeah, me too. got 5 exams :/

    Just thought I'd get this thread going again by asking:

    I'm a mature student (well...relatively mature at 23) and have an offer to study the BSc met and climate degree. Look forward to seeing those of you on my course in October if all goes well

    To all those that are lucky enough to get an MMet offer, you'll love it. I'm doing an Access To He course so I don't meet the desired academic criteria to have the chance at interview, but I have experienced tornado chasing across the plains in the US and it's amazing. Based at Oklahoma Uni in your 3rd year you'll get to experience some incredible weather throughout the year (including a decent snow fall !).

    How long did it take for you to get an offer? I applied in November and have offers from all my other choices, bar Edinborough...
    Thanks

    Yeah, they said today that it won't be until about 2 weeks after the final interview day which means something like mid march

    I got mine in February, applied in November too. The way they seem to do it is a bit strange, a friend of mine sent off his application to the course a couple of days after me and heard back a month before me. Wouldn't worry about it too much.

    They seem to be pretty slow this year, only people who seem to have heard back are the ones who have been rejected. A good sign for you perhaps.

    Maybe, it's not gonna be my firm but I'd rather they get back to me fairly soon so I can start to weigh up my insurance options :P I'm eager to get on to the next stage :P
