    Are you still going to firm Glasgow? Or has Liverpool persuaded you otherwise?

    This is what the vets I work with were trying to convince me :p: Nice bit of blackmail today: "I won't let you inject this dog unless you say that RVC is the best vet school ever!" The newest vet there graduated from RVC last year, she's lovely. She was rejected and then they phoned her on results day and offered her a place. There's another RVC vet (she graduated about three years ago) there who actually didn't get any interviews except Cambridge and on results day RVC phoned her up and invited her to a last minute interview at the end of August and gave her an offer! Seems very odd. She asked them to defer, though, because she'd obviously already planned her gap year and had none-refundable tickets. They were a bit miffed but they let her.

    I do like RVC, it's a shame my interview went so badly

    How do you think your interview went? And I'm pretty sure you'll get an offer, you seem to be pretty good at interviews!

    To be honest i'm really not sure how it went.. every1 on here seems to have joked and laughed with their interviewers and i certainly didnt! Seemed quite serious.. and v ethical... i had learned so much clinical stuff and didnt get to talk bout it lol fortunately i have nottingham to fall back on but if i got RVC it would def. be my no. one choice.

    If you got bristol, Liverpool and RVC, Which would be ur top two?

    Edit: (Theoretically!!!)

    Mine weren't very jokey, definitely more serious.

    Well, first of all, I will definitely not get Bristol, Liverpool AND RVC. I will actually run around my school naked if I do, I promise :p: Either that or die of shock. Seriously, it will just not happen. :rolleyes: But, Liverpool is my favourite but I don't know how I'd choose between Bristol and RVC. I really like RVC, I love London and I love the HH campus, it's gorgeous and so modern and the facilities are wonderful. It's also really welcoming and I just love it. The only downside is the expense of living in London and the male:female ratio. I like guys, okay. I get on much better with guys that girls, and whenever I've been to HH I can just see girls, haha, I only saw a handful of guys there at both my interview and the open day. However, that is obviously not a very strong reason to dislike it, and I'm sure I'd get over it, and it is a similar situation everywhere.

    I really like the city of Bristol. I visit at least once a month because my boyfriend is there and I completely adore it. However, it doesn't have the wow factor of RVC and I know the vets I work with don't think very highly of Bristol graduates. I still really like it and there's a lovely personal feel to it. It's also a great distance from home (3 or 4 hours), so it's far enough to be independent, but close enough to get home if there's a real emergency or something. I just don't know how much of my judgement is clouded by the fact that my boyfriend is there. Obviously I'd love to put an end to the long distance aspect of our relationship but, at the end of the day, my education is more important and that will always come first. We can cope with a long distance relationship just fine, I'm trying not to let that influence any decision.

    So, I'd probably prefer RVC, but the other thing about RVC is that I'd have to get AAA, which doesn't seem very likely at the moment. Basically, I'd love to go to any of the three, just wherever will accept me :p: I want them to tell me something, good or bad, I'm going crazy waiting :eek3:

    The real reason tommy withdrew from rvc is because if he got rejected he wouldn't be able to **** it off when he goes off to Glas:p: Now he can say "oh Glas is so much better then rvc i withdrew from there because it wasn't a patch on it :cool: " but if he got rejected we could just say he disliked it because he got rejected. He is a crafty one
    Anyway RVC is a great place in my opinion so ignore tommy and if you are waiting for you interview ignore steph as well, my interview was nice at the rvc it is just a mixed bag.

    Aw i'm relieved ur interview was serious too.. I actualy thought my interview was quite tough compared to Notts and Bristol.. but maybe thats just me...

    LOL bout you running round ur school naked.. i'm sure ur bf would love that !! Funny that you mentioned the boy girl ratio at the RVC, i was sat in the waiting room/cafe and thinking the same thing.. hardly any guys.. but surely they do try to balance the ratios..


    I get the same bristol vibe from vets i speak to.. they always say that RVC grads are the most employable out of all the uni's.. and i'v heard really mixed things about notts. Some vets say its going to be the best and others say the complete opposite! I wish there was some independent organisation that could give you the inside scoop on the unis and tell you which uni's are going to be rated highest in the future ( i have a feeling that following the refurb. Bristol will be top in the country!!)

    they rejected me because of my BMAT ppl on this forum seem to really love it, and nobody has really said anythign bad about it exept the sex ratio and london is expensive! I wish I got an interview there :rolleyes:

    just got an e-mail off my mum :o: both my grand-parents (weird calling them that, nain a taid ) are asking about me so I have to send them an e-mial/post card...
    and dad was TB testing the other day, and a cow lifted the crush up and was runnign around the yard stuck in the crush! I would have loved to be the vet!! lols think we'll be all clear though, we don't buy in and nobody in the area has it

    At the end of the day, wherever anyone of us go, we are all going to love it and probably find work reasonably easily afterwards. We can only make decisions based on factors/variables at the time of receiving an offer. We can't know which vet school will have the best reputation in 5/6 years time, we can just choose the one that appeals to us the most. To be honest, most people aren't in a position to pick and choose, and I am very envious of those in that position :p:

    I don't know tbh i really like them all and they are all on pretty even positions in my mind atm. Trying to look at the negative side of things. Liverpool has slipped slightly in my liking over the past few weeks as i don't think much of their admission or interview process and i think it would be a bit too close to home, i really thought all the people were really friendly and there was very much a community feel though. However i also have one or two things which put me off Glas and RVC which have been there from the beginning so.
    Chances are i will get at least one more rejection if not two which will make the decision a lot easier. Anyway who wants to go the RVC full of girls most of whom are blonde according to hannah that really put me off:p:

    My biggest RVC downsides - I can't really count cost as Cambridge is my favourite, which adds another year worth of debt - would be the sex ratio and also the total vettyness. That sounds a bit strange, but I'm not sure how much I'd like living with vets and essentially spending all my time with vets. I think I'd prefer to have a mixture of friends doing vet, and friends doing totally different courses. That was you're not all stressed over exams at the same time, and you have people with an outside perspective on the whole thing, which allows you to put all the vet stuff aside sometimes and just chill. Its sort of the same same as the boy/girl thing; at other universities you're with other subjects, which evens it out. Most of my close friends are girls, but I prefer to overall have a mixed group. Just seems a lot more normal, and less *****y :p:
    That said, RVC was always my second favourite.
