    Hi guys, I applied late last week, just before the deadline so unsurprisingly haven't heard anything yet! Anyone else out in quite a late application?
    I applied 10.30am on Friday, found out on Monday, had phone interview Tuesday.

    I'm not totally sure - I think Leicester? I had to rank 5 unis in order of preference ages ago when I was first interested, but as Leicester is my UG uni, and they don't specify Leicester grads, I'm assuming I could be placed anywhere.

    Also guys, the woman on the phone told me that as more interviews had been scheduled for next week, the earliest we'd probably hear back is February. They said they'd had a lot of applicants, however they extended the deadline? I wonder how many is 'a lot'

    I applied for Edinburgh and am still "Under Review," which is a bit worrying considering all the people who've had their phone interview already... Do you think we should contact the programme directly to ask for updates or are the universities just taking their sweet time?

    Maybe it is just Scottish unis? lol. Me and my friend are still waiting for Glasgow and my friend who applied for Stirling is still waiting.

    Just got a reply to my request for an update:

    "We are currently in the process of screening your application form and marking your answers to the competency questions that you completed on your form. Your application is currently with one of our interviewers and we hope to have a update for you by the middle of next week."

    Hopefully will find out soon, good luck to everyone who's still waiting!

    Thanks so much for this! I was starting to think they'd forgotten about us.

    It says so on the website, but they keep changing the deadlines so I've got my fingers crossed for you!
