    Rach, when you speak to the lecturer, I'd be really interested to hear what they say... If you don't want to post publically then please could you private message me on FB, sorry that sounds really demanding, only if you wouldn't mind!!xx

    if bristol feels right then i think you should just go for it i chose liverpool because it felt right, even tho Edinburgh offer the AVMA accreditation thingy which I really want coz im pretty sure i'll wanna work in the usa or canada for a while when i qualify but i kinda realised that short term i wanted to go to liverpool and in the long run i can always take the extra exams for the american qualification
    and for you with bristol, if you go there and for some reason they did lose their rcvs status then you would just have to sit the exam externally (not that theyd ever let that happen!) and surely theyre gonna be improving their facilites and that because they wont want to risk getting a bad reputation! you should go with ur gut instinct, otherwise one day you'll be sitting in edinburgh and wish you'd chosen bristol
    just my opinion tho i guess

    hmm yeh ive asked one of the vets i did work exp with (it was with him that i met the bristol lecturer) if he could speak to him, but he hasnt got back to me yet, emails and this vet take a long time, i may ring him once ive spokeen to this vet to see what he says.

    i spoke to an ex-lecturer and he sed "thats great news!! Knowone knows the furture of Bristol vet school but at least now they are doing something to improve it" (he stopped lecturing there because he was fed up with the way they were doing things and he wasnt very happy with how the vet school was working..) I dont think there is any chance that bristol will loose accreditation, bristol wont loose its vet school, i really dont think that will happen, but in some ways it seems wrong picking a "worse" university when ive got offers from ones with fantastic reputations, BUT yes it does feel right, from the day i wanted to be a vet i wanted to be a Bristol vet, the days of watching vets in practise, falling in love with steve lenoard, reading the books and spending tie in bristol city..

    im gona stop thinking about it though :o:

    Since you havn't seen our farm I'm not goign to laugh at this suggestion, coz youa re right for most lower ground sheep farmers its a very good idea!

    I was digging sheep out of meters of snow today, one was down with calcium, but the injection was in the quad and I couldnt drive it up coz the snow was higher than its wheels, by the time I got to the Quad and back to the ewe she was ******* dead!! >
    all other sheep alive though, bless the lambs all I could see were their head bobbing up and down, welsh mountians are tuff buggers! I love them!!
    We got the last gang of 300 down from the mountian top to the lower ground today, so their in 2" of snow instead of 2 meters haha.
    Overall succesfull day me thinks even though 100 ewes are stil in the pen, and we need to sort them out after tea
    I take it your farm is on a really steep slope/hillside (or even a mountain?!) then? That's a lot of snow!
    We moved all of the few day old lambs into another barn and bedded that down for them today - they're in pens of about 20 - before they venture out into the big wide (and very windy, rainy and cold!) world. We're soft like that round here :p:

    Now got an RVC prospectus, despite not ordering one. Maybe they know, or maybe my friend has been registering me for things again :rolleyes:

    Rach i think you feel the same way about Bris that I felt about Glasgow, place I wanted to go to since forever, and when I got my B in chem in August, I was more gutted about not being able to appy to Glasgow over everything, and now I've ended up there anyway, and it's deffo for the best, its where I've always wanted to be and imagine myself at!
    That doesnt help youa t all does it...hmmm
    Even if Bristol is the crapiest, u'll still qualify as a vet, and if you like the way they teach, liked the campus, liked the city, liek the fact you can go home, wether its for YFC doos, see ur mates/bf, or help your dad, it cost a lot less to come home, not cold in the winter, and if you really liek it there its where you should go!!
    What are your pros for Ed? do you like the campus better? or is it just the fact they have no 'bad news' hovering around them?
    myself I though a lot of the applocant there for other subject were chocolate ppl, which for me are no no;s!! bu meh!

    We never get snow usually it all goes on the other side of the Valley, but all the wind has blown it towards us this year!!
    yeah no flat ground at all!! plus our sheep don't eat cake/sillage so it would cause a lot of stress brinign them in (never been in before) and we don't have any spare sillage for them, the cows need it all, and also we don't dip our lambs in iodine/ treat them for watery mouth, so we don't have these 'things'. Plus the deaths from intensive farming from putting them indoor+the money for hiring one, would acctually end up in a lot less profit!

    yeah wesh mountains wool is like proper wool!! haha nothing like charlois where the lambs are born pink LOL, my texels are indoor coz they are softies, turned them out today acctaully (no snow around the house anymore)

    I think it's pretty nutts the difference in both lambing worlds :rolleyes: I like both, shed is cool coz u got the radio and your warm, sheep follows you and are dead tame, but you dont get to chase lambs to number them, drive crazily on the main road on the quad with 2 lambs in ur hands and all the tourist 'awwwing' hehe, and lambs born outside are just way way healthier! I was shoked with the amount of death when indoor born lams are turned out!

    wos crazy long post!! sozz

    Making plans, celebrating, drinking their problems away, studying, doing something worthwhile with their day?

    I think the main reason people went on here was because they felt they had to talk to other vet students to share their anxiety for the coming interviews, offers and rejections. Now that everyone knows their fate, they'll only come here asking for advice.

    Ok, maybe i'm taking this a little too seriously but what the heck.

    I was shocked about the amount of ones that were squished overnight by their mothers at first! However, no others seem to have been squished since, very odd...
    Had to tackle a sheep (rugby style pretty much) then lamb it whilst pinning said sheep down, nutty ewe :rolleyes:

    yeahhh lot get squashed, that why i think indoor lambig is real unhealthy, but if you want to lamb from Jan-March you have no other option i suppose, just pray for good weather so you can turn them out asap!

    I don't think i'll bother turning to the 2011 thread, I'm no help to anybody really unless they have farmy Q's...
