University Badgering Watch
I got rejected from my first and second choice Unis for English Lit (Nottingham and Warwick). Do you think there is any point me hassling them to give me a place? Anyone know anyone who has?
Are you normally interviewed for places at Nottingham or Warwick? Thing is a friend of mine who was rejected for veterinary medicine at Glasgow phoned the admissions tutor up and asked why she hadnt been offered a place. They said it was just due to the competition and that otherwise she was a strong candidate. So she asked them that if anyone should cancel for their interview, could she possibly take their place? The following monday they said that if she could get to the vet school for the following day she could have an interview. She did, and is now in her second year there (they changed their minds and offered her a place!). So maybe you could do a similar thing - at least it shows that you are keen to go to that uni, and you wont be expecting them to do the impossible.Just a thought..
It depends on the course, but for Eng lit they dont normally interview, it is normally just courses like teaching, veterinary, medicine and law that places interview for (expect for Oxbridge where they interview everyone)
Oh right I didnt know - sorry...Im a future vet as well you see - not an englishy person!
Im not an englishy person either, its just that i know about the courses that get interviewed - it was drummed into us at school and i know people that went thought it last year and of course me and my friends that are going though it this year! Good luck with the veterinary! Have you had any offers yet?
Yeh I have two offers from Edinburgh and the Royal Veterinary College, London - still waiting to hear from bristol and Liverpool...hopefully should hear something in the next week or so!
Well done! My friend got a place at RVCL but was rejected from Bristol! She really wants to go to RVCL now, eventhough Bristol was originally her first choice! Good Luck, im sure u'll hear soon! The competition for Vet school is immense! They really need to get some more places that do it!
Where else has she applied? Did she have an interview at bristol?
Badgering them probably wont really get you anywhere they are very competitive unis, I guess you've got nothing to lose so you could try but I wouldnt hold out much hope for Nottingham but when my cousin went on an open day at Warwick he got talking to one of the tutors and ended up with quite a low offer for Warwick so I guess they might be worth a try.
