    I've not, but I got my rats from breeders - wayyy less chance of mycoplasmosis if you get your rats from a breeder rather than a pet shop etc.

    Really? Makes sense I suppose - I really want ratties again so that is probably the way to go. Where do you find rat breeders, do you know?? Have you had them before the two you have now? Although I have a problem about getting rats (see attach )

    Hows your application going?
    Not good Edinburgh and Glasgow declined me after interview. But I have been told that if I had been older then my applications would have had a greater chance of being successful, so there is hope. I am going to apply next year.

    What about you?

    Errmmmm google! And gumtree, too. I got my hoodeds from a breeder who advertised the litter on gumtree.

    They are great pets to have at uni, for me anyway. The only annoying issue is the travelling home on the holidays with them :woo: Taking a lil cage along with loads of bags is not fun!

    Oh yeah sorry should have checked first lol Well done! I am seventeen, but my birthday is on the 28th of February so I wouldn't be eighteen until most of the way through my first year - apparently that's bad.

    I think if my app. had been stronger they might have overlooked it, but I didn't have as much experience as some: I know they do take on people born at a similar time as me. x

    Wow, well that's strange. I was 17 until February 7th this year, so I'm only a few weeks older than you. My age was never really mentioned at all, and I'm here at Ed. That sucks, but I've never heard of age being a factor before (apart from at Bristol, where one of my friends got rejected for physics because she was too young).

    I think it was just a contributing factor, like if they had somebody older with the same amount of exerience or whatever they would choose them over me. It was by no means the only reason I got turned down.

    Do you like edinburgh? it will probably be my first choice next year.

    Edit: it was by no means THE reason I got turned down... I didn't have that strong an application, so I am not surprised I did

    I was trying to explain this to people who were on the open day tour today and I couldn't do it, because I love this place so much I can't quite put it into words haha!
