    Yeah, I got that vibe, as it seems for years one- three you are in the city, and have the majority of the animal contact in years 4/5....... Can't believe it though, I thought I sounded like a bufoon in the interview.... Couldn't.Stop.Talking!!

    Hi yes I have but not heard yet. Also I apologise for my appalling grammar in the last message. Still getting to grips with my new phone! Currently I have am offer from Edinburgh so at least I have an option but a little hoping for a marginally cheaper option! I did have an offer from Bristol when I applied before but didn't end up going. what's your degree and are you still studying?

    Hopefully you will hear from them soon! Congrats on the Edinburgh offer- I have friends there, and they love it, and are so keen and enthusiastic- wish I could afford it there....
    In my interview they did say that I was "an unusual candidate" I have a totally unrelated BA in...... photography (cringe) which I completed quite a few years ago (Im 26) returned to college last year to do Chem and Maths, and applied this autumn when I was certain I had the grades. I spent the past 5 years working with animals/vets/on farms, and worked ina research institute for a long time, affiliated with Oxford Uni, and managed to get a paper published in vet record, these aspects rather than my previous education I think were what interested bristol.
    So, in a nutshell, not studying at the mo, working at a racing/hunting yard currently!

    Have you finished your degree? and good luck for Brizzle! (I also applied to notts, but they rejected me straight away)

    Hurray! Finally someone else with a totally bizarre way in! I'm also 26, graduated 2009 in animal science but since then I've been working in contemporary circus and creative education mainly with also care work! Before I went to uni I was working full time on farms. The last few years have been really interesting but totally confirmed what I want to do! I'm basically a scientist and artist and have had issues deciding what to do. ate you still waiting on any other unis?

    Oh how fantastic that all sounds! Really interesting, and I think it is good to have lots of life experience, you definitely then never run out of things to talk about, the art/science issue, I know that one well... I had a lot of friends who found it hard to decide where their true passions lay, ultimately I concluded that science s where my aptitude and curiosity come to the fore, and art is a fun hobby that helps me relax (and occasionally makes me a few quid)
    I'm not waiting on anymore, I applied to Liverpool Notts and Bristol (also newcastle for animal science) got offers from Bristol and Newcastle, but notts and liv both rejections... I was soo upset when I got the notts letter!
    Have you had a bristol interview? xxx

    Just out of interest why did people who didn't apply to RVC not apply to RVC? Surely as a graduate it's a much more financially viable option?

    Hi
    I am new on here and been stalking this page since I applied.... so I thought it was time I joined and said hello. I haven't heard anything from Liverpool either since the W/E form, am getting worried now. In a way I wish they would just let us know either way so we can prepare and form other plans. Good luck everyone with RVC interviews!!!!
