    Really? That's a bit pessimistic coming from a tutor. Well then I'm glad you had proof. I put in extracts of my two films so it was only 2 minutes 30 seconds and also put some stills in the portfolio just in case. I wouldn't really mind if they hadn't watched all of it, as long as they got the gist of what it was.

    Afraid I don't know when Goldsmiths start making decisions, but their interviews tend to run into April so they might take a bit longer.
    I still don't know what my second choice is. I keep moving between Goldsmiths, Kingston and Brighton. I think Goldsmiths is edging it though.

    I don't think he was being pessimistic, just realistic! Trying not to get our hopes up as it's very difficult to get an interview even if your work is good enough

    I keep checking my emails every 2 minutes! this is too stressful!!

    I suppose, but the whole point of the inspection is to look at your work. I guess if they don't like what they see in the portfolio, they won't bother with the film. Slade have said they reject a lot of people they would like to take, even at the interview stage.

    I know, I keep looking now even though it's Saturday. :rolleyes:

    Bizarrely enough I do feel okay about it I don't get nervous very often haha. What about you?
    It's not bizarre haha I'm cool with it, it's my work and I'm pretty confident talking about it; it's whether they like it or not. Waiting for the Slade is a agonising though haha

    I know some people who have heard back from CSM (some interviews, some rejections), but plenty haven't, so you're not alone. I'm yet to hear from Chelsea, but I've actually decided I really don't wan't to go there now.

    Yeah, found out on friday that i have a portfolio inspection/possible interview on the 6th of march. Loads of people I know have yet to hear though, wouldn't worry about it!

    Also, do you have an online portfolio you wouldn't mind linking privately? (No worries if not) as I love seeing other people's work!

    Oh, I'm certainly not anti-Chelsea. It think it's a fantastic course and they have really great facilities, which is why I applied. I just can't see myself there. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be happy there, and it's not something I can explain (or I'm just really bad at explaining). :rolleyes:

    I'd also love to see your work if you'd you wouldn't mind sending me a link (if you have one). I've posted mine on the Slade stalking page: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...age_2014_entry

    Fair enough, i find it very similar to Plymouth college of art where I am now, just far far better. That's the feeling I got from Goldsmiths, I just knew I didn't want to go there.

    Yeah, I know quite a few people who feel that way about Goldsmiths. I really loved it at the open day, but now I keep going back and forth.

    Seconded!! I'm sorry to hear that, both of your stuff is really fantastic.

    I have no idea how.. but I've managed to get an interview :confused:, doubt I'll make it any further than that though.
