    Has anyone had interviews at Bristol or Warwick yet? I have them coming up and wondered what to expect:eek:
    Hi I had an interview at Warwick and now have an offer It's not really like an interview, it feels quite relaxed. The practical workshop was quite fun too. And I've applied to Bristol as well but for Drama and French and have yet to hear... it's the only one I'm waiting for now!
    Where else have you applied?
    Good luck with your interviews

    Hi, thanks still waiting for the outcome of the third round. The waiting is the worst part! To be honest there were mainly 18-21 year olds but I'm 25 and there were a hand full of others my age and older. I don't think being older would be a problem at all.
    Have you recieved an outcome?

    Cheers for your input. Considering the oldest prospective drama students to have posted in this thread are mid 20s, I think we're okay. Also someone mentioned having someone in their 40s on their course. I'm curious to know how many people of the age you say is impossible to get place actually apply for a place.

    All caps plus your spacing makes me want to kill myself. Sort yourself out.

    Hi there, just wondering if anyone went to the Bristol LAMDA auditions on 5th and 6th of February and whether anyone has heard yet...
    Auditioned a couple of years ago and hate the 2-3 weeks you have to wait for a reply from them.
    Thanks

    if it's LAMDA, you could be waiting up to three weeks I believe, I got offered a recall 2 weeks after my audition... you are going to have to be very patient with them, most schools don't take this long at all and frankly I don't understand why they need that long, but I don't know - so... I'm not to judge/

    What is the name of this drama school? I'm technically a mature student at 23 & I gained a place at central this year, I know 3 other people who have places too and they are all 18/19, maybe they are indeed right about the average age... but I personally know someone who got into a dramaschool at the age of 27, central have a 30 year on their showcase this year and I saw a man at a RADA play who looked like 45!

    fascinating story though, really interested at what the school was! I have an idea, but If you don't mind sharing, one thing you are right about is drama schools choose who the want, they don't follow any rules... especially the one's who don't give feedback.

    At my Central audition there was someone who was 35 in his second year. The girl who gave the tour actually said she loves how they admit people who are older, it allows for more diversity.

    The number of young people that apply massively out-weighs that of the number of older people. And while statistically more younger student may be offered places, In the real world more younger people also get knocked back.
