    Awesome. I didn't know if you had already gone (I missed the Open Day last year so I didn't know when it was).
    Hehe it is awfully chilly up here though. Wrap up warm when you come up to the open day in September! :yep:
    (Might see you there, does the open day go into the vet school itself?).

    Haha I'm sure it'll be nice anyway. I love Open Days!
    Gah, UCAS. I always had problems with that website. My guidance teacher didn't even know how to work it even though she was the one who was meant to be the careers expert (that was a bit dire). I remember I had to send the info to her first, she would attach a reference and then the whole thing would be sent to the unis. But at the time I had no idea how to do it and it took about a week to figure it out haha.
    I actually only got it all sent off on the 5th of October or thereabouts. Talk about cutting it close!
    Good luck with reapplying.

    Haha I thought mine was sent off late because everyone at my school was super-organised and I wasn't. Ah well, what matters is that it goes before the deadline.

    Just wondering...

    Lots of people make work experience portfolios to take to interviews. What sort of things do people put in them? (I'm guessing: references, pictures... etc) I guess I'm mainly aiming this at people who have already applied before!

    Thanks

    I only take references, in a folder, that's it. If you take actual pictures and stuff, I don't think they're interested. I just took references.

    I only took one reference to my interviews, although I had sent a bunch of them in the post beforehand. I think the most important things are the references; they probably won't take much notice of anything else.
    I know a guy who filmed a lot of his work experience and he doubted if admissions even watched the footage. You can imagine, as they have so many people to go through and it would be unfair to spend more time looking at one individual than others.

    Yeah as above ^

    I'd recommend taking all refs to interview, because you never know there may not have received them in the post etc. I think at my Bris interview I sent them beforehand, AND let them have a copy after interview, because they asked if they could keep them (which sort of made me wonder if they got them in the post, so always best to confirm by giving them in person if they want them)

    Question:
    The kennel women really did not take to me. Basically she questioned my "Commitment to being a vet" when I told her it was usually my mum who fed my cat (I don't deliberately neglect him! He gets fed in the morning when I'm busy getting ready and at night I'm not home yet generally. I still give him loads of attention..) She never liked me after that, constantly telling me stories of the hard requirements working with animals demands. "Oh on Christmas day we had a sick dog and we had to abandon celebrating...Could you handle that?" I do know of the commitment needed!
    I don't think I'll get a reference off her..
    Would I get away with just leaving it (I know Edinburgh like them from all placements though)
