My daughter had her auditions (morning and afternoon) mid December and she has been offered a place 7 weeks later. Hope this helps & good luck!

Awww perfect. Good luck to you! And sorry, I misunderstood your question thinking you asked for turn around time. But in case you have a long wait after your audition, you now know that it can take long 😌
How did your audition go?

I’m trying to work out how many first rounds they have left to do? My son did his final recall (got through to the afternoon) in December and we’re still waiting for an outcome.

It’s like he’s been unofficially waitlisted while they see if they like other people more than him. It’s torture - other people seem to be getting offers or rejections but he’s heard nothing 😬

I really hope you hear soon! What a long wait that is. My daughter had a missed call from the head of Acting yesterday, she was at school. He left a voicemail - just to see how she was and telling her how much they loved her audition and how much they would love for her to train there. As you know by now, she accepted the offer. But what a sweet thing to do ☺️
I like this chat very much

That is nice. Though it underlines how undecided they are about my son, or how unimportant they think he is! The wait and lack of contact kind of puts my son off now to be honest. To not have even sent a holding email in all this time is a bit rude.

LIPA is one school that waits for everyone to do their auditions until they start giving out offers. For example, I know people including myself who are still doing their first round audition for them in March. So that’s probably why there is such a big hold. I 100% agree they should send out a email explaining this because a lot of people are confused. It’s only that I currently go to LIPA Sixth Form that I can get more of an insight.
Thanks so much for this. It just seems so weird that some people have offers already (and are getting check-ins from the head of acting already) and others just radio silence. I really value you saying this is normal though and the offers are unusual.

Ah yeah I agree! Very strange, there’s been a mix up somewhere. Hope you find out soon😄

I completely understand why this is frustrating and it would have been nice if they could have told you a little more assuring information once you emailed. Don’t let this put off your son and fingers crossed you find out really soon!

Just a holding would be good email really. All the other colleges do that if the response takes a while (which is understandable as there are 1000s of candidates!).
