    I have just found out that my second reference has been submitted for my masters conversion degree at nottingham, starting in 2017. Whilst it is true that my criminal record could prove to be a stumbling block, i am hoping that a good and above all honest, personal statement, and two steller references, will be enough to get me a place??

    A bit of theft? A bit if fisty fun with the neighbours? Setting fire to bins? This is all assuming that you are of normal criminal element :holmes:

    Yes thanks, it is for a social media job with a large health care charity. I am hoping that the manager will stay true to her word, and contact me again in the near future, or at least get another one of her team to. I thought the meeting went well, but you never can tell right?
