    I got an interview! God knows how... I'm just really stunned to be honest, I don't know what to think! I've heard that this course (English with Creative Writing) is one of the most competitive out there, so I'm a bit shocked!

    Yes, just today. Same to you for UEA, they've had my portfolio about 2 weeks and the wait is driving me nuts!! D:

    Good luck bubbles! If you get and offer from Warwick, what are you likely to firm, just out of interest? (I have no clue what I'm going to do if I do. D: )

    Same to you! I'm not feeling too bad about the portfolio, as I usually write novels. (i.e. I have more than pages available to take from, it's just finding the right ones to send.)

    Ask for an online interview maybe? My email about it said something about online interviews, so I think you just select that option when you confirm your interview via the link that they gave you.

    I'm the same as you, don't have a clue what my first choice would be if I got all my offers! Don't really think I stand the slightest chance with Warwick though, even of getting an interview I just sent off my application thinking I'd be lucky to get any offers and I'd be happy to go to any of my 5 choices. So I'm putting off all the big decision making 'til I know what all my replies are

    Same in terms of waiting until I know where I stand. I just ask because odd as it might sound, I'm not sure whether to accept the Warwick interview or decline it. Part of me really wants to go, the other part of me prefers my other choices. I know it's the most prestigious one I've put down, but I'm not sure if it's... me.

    Guess I may as well give it a shot though, just in case I change my mind.

    This is a general question but does anyone know if it's generally harder to get into Bristol than Warwick? Or vice versa?

    I thought I had a good chance at Bristol but I've been rejected so I just wanted to know if I should expect the same from Warwick

    I want to do PPE btw
    First of all, does Bristol even offer PPE I didn’t know?

    I do not think is matters, I know people who have been rejected from lower universities and have got into higher ranked ones. Good luck mate.

    Ah come on Mouse, you have to at least have a go! You'll get a better idea on the day if it's 'you' or not, and at the worst you'll get to speak to some interesting people and try out your interview skillz. Plus if you don't you'll always wonder whether you'd have got in. Your other offers aren't going anywhere.

    You might get there and love it.

    Firm/Insurance/declined: Either firm or insurance (not sure about york)
    Oh, another German. Have you been here before? I only remember talking to you (or at least reading your posts) over in the Germans' post. Congrats on your offer.
    Wait, wasn't it you who asked whether we'd recommend going to York? Now's Warwick your first choice?
    Again, well done
