    Lol i'm one of them aswell, i really wanted to go...ummmm...tell your friend to call from 9am to 1pm and ask for ms darcy and speak to her. They told me to write to the principle and I was like wtf:eek: lol....I might just call on enrollement day and ask if they have any spaces. Btw she can't be on the waiting list unless she was offered to.....also to stay on the waiting list is £5.

    just had my interview, went quite well actually, was told there was no reason not to be accepted (good answers, excellent portfolio, good ectra curricular sports etc...) does anyone know when the final decisions will be made. Ice dragoness- did you have urs in the hall or aquinas???

    Really? They didn't say that in mine....aww...well good on you anyay=]!

    mine was in the hall (hume building). It was meant to be 6.30 but I got a bit lost despite leaving loads of time (apparently I wasn't the only one!) so I turned up at 7.00 and so I got some random other interviewer who had some spare time to interview me.
    Unfortunately it was a bit rushed coz of that, and I didn't get to answer/ask questions as completely as I would have liked. =(...at least there weren't any awkward silences except for when I was trying to remember the last question I wanted to ask! :tongue:

    They said something bout letting you know in the next few weeks about offers? Also were you guys asked whether you're applying anywhere else?
    On the spur of the moment, I told them the truth and said I had applied to woodhouse (stupid of me,seeing as I got rejected there!) and they asked me to say which i preferred. A

    hey
    they asked to confirm the info on my application form, and what I wanted to study in uni. She also asked why I wanted to go to doms and what I would give back to the college. They all seem really friendly there so don't worry Oh, and make sure you take your record of achievements. good luck

    ahh I got the same sorta questions

    How long did your interviews last? Mine felt really rushed, probably because I was allocated to the only free interviewer just before they had to leave o_O
    Also I took my art sketch book along with my report, and BEING THE LUCKY PERSON I AM he missed all the really good sketches! ahh well I guess that's not too important ...but yeah interview could have gone better otherwise.

    They rejected me because my grades 'didn't meet the admission criteria' ...when it did....I was predicted a couple of A*'s and A's and 1 B ....I know people that got just b's and got an interview...are they being racist to me because i'm asian?

    HAHAHA i did not know there were so many pakistanis..im one too =P and icedragoness told me she was one too yday so yay!

    i had my interview today at st dom's, i think it went fairly well. it took place at the aquinas building and although most people's interviews were rushed, mine seemed to last around 20 mins?!

    she asked me just to confirm what i wrote on my application form for the first few minutes, then we discussed my progress file and we started talking about my subjects. was really relaxed and i think it went pretty well =D even though st dom's isn't my first choice - in fact it's one of the last schools i'd go...i think it did make me feel better knowing i did well.

    she told me that i'll hear from them in mid-april; she said that my grades were above what they would expect, and that i have been involved in a lot of different things.

    does anyone have an interview for watford grammar next week? that is one of my top choices so im just praying 2 allah that the interview goes well...=/
    but i'm fairly confident in interviews now, due to how well the st dom's interview turned out =)
