    First day on my own without the shepherd at the farm I am working at today, and no total disasters occured, the place was still in one piece when I left. Had to kill one lamb though But all in all pretty pleased I didn't totally mess up!

    Have done sod all revision for my RVC interview so far though, and haven't got a clue when I am going to fit any in
    You had to kill one? How come? This your first time lambing?
    Bah you'll be fine for RVC.. but I will say - they vary ALOT! I got asked all farm stuff, and one of my friend got asked all ethical and small animal stuff. And they barely used my personal statement. :o:

    Yes, but when you nail your interview you can have lots of champagne! Why on earth you'd want champagne escapes me though; hate the stuff :o:
    I know how you feel though, but I have resigned myself to a gap year because I don't even have a Bristol interview. If by some chance you have to reapply then yours will come in as good practice
    Arghh, I'm rubbish at these 'cheer up' style posts.

    On the upside, I've passed my theory test and have an invite to Notts for the biochem offers day - but still no offer on track :confused:
    i dont like champagne either, but after my bristol interview i drank loads of Jack Daniels and coke.

    My RVC interview was Wednesday and they used alot of my personal statement and talked a good bit about wildlife (cause thats where i have most of my non-veterinary experience). The 30 minutes flew, and by the time I had finished my interview at 3.45pm everyone else was gone and I had the tour by myself. I thought it was a nice place id love to go there.

    XD Nice.
    I think I just had a strange interview. Most people I know were asked alot on their personal statement. But we started my interview off with disease in cattle, and it seemed to stay on that for about 15-20 minutes.. with just the one interviewer grilling me! Eventually one of the other interveiwers was like '*cough* I think I should ask her some questions now!'.

    I love RVC too. Did you have the whole 30 minutes? Mine was about 25 minutes I think.

    Im not sure i think it was around 30 minutes cause i got back to the eclipse building at 3.45 and my interview was at 3.10 but it was all a blur :lol:
    I have no idea how i did tho, from the sounds of it alot of people get on well at the RVC interviews. And the interviewers were laughing quite a bit.

    Wonder how many offers theyll give out this year?

    Your interviewers were laughing? Hah. Mine never cracked a smile! Blergh. I had all men, all clinicians! But I still think it went okay (I think!)

    I reckon they'll give out about 45 offers, and then expect about 30-35 people to accept them.

    Ohh. Cool! The one in camden, or in hawkshead?
    Hawkshead library is alot more impressive.

    Yer alot of our BSC vetsci students do modules at kings.. as we are allowed to pick from both kings and rvc modules.

    Syringomyelia is an interesting condition.. very very horrible though. :eek3:
