    Hey,
    I've also applied to vis comm and still waiting for a reply.
    I skimmed last night through 2016 RCA thread here and saw that many applicants were waiting for an e-mail past the official deadline and actually got invited for an interview, I think around the beginning of March (last year's deadline for their reply was 12th of February). It was a really similar situation like this year and most of those who had been waiting applied in January around 23rd.
    Seen couple of applicants who had applied for vis comm too and actually got invited for an interview. (Illustration and graphic design).
    So if you haven't got any answer yet it means that there is still much hope for us.

    Fingers crossed for both of us!

    Hey there!
    Yeah I guess no news is good news anyhow:cookie:
    Although I did submit my portfolio very late…like, last minute before the deadline…x
    Hopefully mine still count as a priority app.
    Good luck to you and whoever still waiting for a reply!

    I think the backlog is across the whole college, I emailed on Friday to see if there was any progress update specifically for the dept I applied for. I initially got an email today saying basically no update yet but we'll let you know and a few minutes later I got the other email letting me know I will be interviewed.

    hi guys, I had my interview yesterday, I was talking to my friends about how was my interview and thought, well I will do a video so you can see also how it went and what kind of thing they usually ask.

    Was a fun interview I will say, my perspective is they are really the best and I do really wish with all my heart to get there, they are looking for a really good designers, but will see, everything is finished now and only have to wait.

    Hey I watched your video, it was funny, you little cat! Fight! Fight! Haha

    I wonder if they come down harder on people who are younger or currently graduating a BA to see if they can find cracks in their thinking or approach etc. and how they handle conflict. It sounds like you held your ground well though! I have a feeling you'll get accepted! 😃

    Oh no...so sorry it didn't work out.
    And no I don't think so, if I start working I would just like to keep working…I guess.

    Maybe send it at the end of Monday, that'll be just over a week since they last updated you and I think that's a very fair length to wait before messaging them. I'm sorry to hear you're still waiting

    Thanks guys! Basically I was emailing the course leader because I sent him my portfolio straight away instead of through the online system (he said that was alright as the system wasnt working for me) and he was the one that interviewed me and the one I emailed to say thanks. Maybe thats why it was quicker for me? X
