Thanks! Yeah got offers from Birmingham and Royal Welsh as well but I didn't feel I could turn Trinity down! Have they offered a guaranteed place to you yet? I don't know anyone else going but I do know a guy who got offered a place and I think accepted Guildhall and turned down Trinity.

Unfortunatly they haven't offered me a guaranteed place, a few graduates I spoke to said quite a few reserve offers turn into places. So unsure, I think i'll have to decide before February 3rd or 4th?

Even if I did turn into an offer, I'm still not entirely sure if I would choose Trinity. £20,000 is a lot of money to turn down. Enough for a masters at one of the London colleges.

I've met some awesome bass players from Birmingham too, I'm sure Trinity bass players are just as good.

What instrument did your friend turn down?

I'm completely stuck with my offers, got an offer from guildhall, a scholarship from RCS and another scholarship from Birmingham conservatoire! RCS seem really keen (and so lovely), have they been like this for anyone else?! I feel like I'd be mad to turn down guildhall, anyone else is this predicament? I'm a mezzo undergrad FYI

I think maybe consultation lessons with different teachers could help with your predicament.
Did you have a favourite before your auditions?

No I didn't... But I always said if I got one in London I'd go down there, but it's do difficult once you get the offers...

I can imagine especially with scholarship offers.
Maybe comparing things like accommodation and performance spaces and stuff like that could help. Also maybe the teachers or even where they rank on league tables?
Maybe you could get advice from your singing teacher?

I've been down to see one of the top signing teachers at Guildhall (Janice Chapman) she said that I should definitely go down there to Guildhall, but RCS are really pushing me to go up there! My singing teacher is really experienced with stuff like this, but she would never tell me where to go because it's my decision.
I feel like everyone knows where there going now and it makes me even more stressed haha. I'm just gonna go to both and see where feels like home the most...

Yeh that's a good idea. Just see how it feels. I've only just accepted Guildhall but it was after all my consultation lessons and spending time there.
Just don't stress yourself out. Its such an important decision you don't wanna rush it.

Did you have your consultations at guildhall? Was it through Armin or did you write individual e-mails to the teachers if you don't mind me asking? I've only just started prodding around, I do have a teacher in mind though.
