    Has anyone applied/had an interview at Warwick? I applied back at the beginning of November and had the interview offer immediately but the only interview date I could get down there for is this coming 24th. How if anyone has had one, did they find it ? I've applied for Art History and French at Warwick, Exeter, Nottingham, Durham and KCL (just for French though) btw x
    I had one, it's really chill and not formal at all, no worries! I'm 90% sure I'll firm it, it seemed like the right place for me

    I had a really great time actually! I wasn't really sure what to expect but everyone was so lovely! I think (hope) it went okay! Though I didn't realise it at the time I was in the interview for 25 minutes but it went by really quickly and the interview was quite down to earth and friendly How was yours?

    Mine was on Friday 12th top, and I've not heard either, even though at the interview they said it'd take ten days to two weeks! Haven't heard from UCL either :L

    Mine neither! The writing part was fine, but I don't know about the second bit... I didn't feel remotely prepared for that bit

    i thought the writing bit was fine until i heard what everyone else was saying they wrote and then i was like omg. eurgh i just felt like they were trying to trip me up and find faults in me, not enjoyable! proper shame considering if the interview was lovely it wouldve made me fall in love with the place even more

    It's probably a good thing if you didn't write the same as everyone else and give a generic view of the art, makes you more memorable to the interviewers!

    The decision is taking so long from the Courtauld. When do you think they'll tell us?

    this is a strange analysis, but i was looking over twitter the other day to see if anyone had posted anything and i found that someone had tweeted they were on their way to their interview and then exactly a month later to the day they said they got an offer, so i'm guessing that theyre going to wait exactly a month. which for me is tomorrow
