I was the first to have an interview yesterday...they asked about how you wrote your piece, how fashion effects society etc

What threw me was this scenario question, I can't remember his exact words. It was on the lines of, if you were commissioned for a 500 article for a weekend newspaper supplement explain your thought process...

Same here... also had it yesterday and I believe the same questions are asked to everybody. Hope it went well! I got a bit confused by that question as well. Good luck! They told me that by the end of March we will all have our replies.

Thank God that the interview is over! Think it went really well but guess you just don't know until they respond. 3/4 days till the date CSM gave us to hear back for interviews so really nervous. Going to be refreshing my emails every five minutes now!

hey guys!

after a lot of research on the uni and students' opinion I don't think LCF is the place for me and decided to decline my interview! I have my other 4 offers which I'm pleased with and I feel I will fit in better there! hope all your interviews / uni applications are going well

I know right? Maybe no news is good news? They will probably answer everyone by the 1st

Hi , I was rejected by CSM for fashion communication and promotion last week after they had evaluated my mini portfolio. I haven't heard back from CSM for fashion journalism after sending my 800 word essay, so I am guessing they are still looking through it. Also still nothing back from LCF Fashion journalism so I'm a bit unsure whats happening! Has anyone else had any news?

I feel like (from things I read) they're looking for candidates who are pretentious and you have to be really confident in yourself and ability and after some mental health stuff and lack of self confidence lately, I don't think I'd be able to present myself in the best light for the interview! also the living costs for the area will be extremely high and I don't get much from my student grant because my parents earn too much, and I don't really want to be too reliant on them! It just doesn't fit "me" and I don't think the uni really reflects the kind of thing I'm looking for - so I've made the best decision for myself and i'm happy with it

Yeah that's all right then! and yes LCF wants the privilege of having big names I think so they are tough on everyone! I am sure you did what's best for you!
