Lipa application (3) (HELP??)

I’m so confused.

Just phoned again to LIPA (auditioned 12th Jan for the BA Acting Musical Theatre course, got through to recall) and they’ve said some things that have confused me.

1) I haven’t received an automatic rejection, however I don’t appear to be on the ‘spreadsheet’ (I assume that means waitlisted?). So, I both have been theoretically ‘waitlisted’ despite not receiving a notification on that matter, as I haven’t received an auto-rejection, but I also haven’t been waitlisted as I’m not on the ‘spreadsheet’?

2) The woman on the phone said ‘ohh it’s July’, so I assume that means the date for my auto-rejection from UCAS, but that also makes no sense as I applied before the 31st of December, so my auto-rejection date would be the 17th of May.

3) Apparently my application has no record of (I’m a trans guy) my preferred name as the woman on the phone consistently referred to me by my deadname and seemed to have no knowledge of my preferred name - so has it been that my application has been lost? I don’t know.

In short, I’m so confused and scared.

I thought I was waitlisted since I hadn’t received a rejection, and that there had just been a complication with communication.

My preferred name (you know, my actual name that I auditioned with) is completely unknown on my application.

I have no idea what I’m going to do about accommodation if I do get in, and time is running out for me to go through clearing if I don’t get in.

I feel so invalidated and so frightened, I really don’t know what to do. They said they would get back to me ASAP but they’ve been saying that for five months.

What do I do?
What name did you put on your UCAS application? That is the one that they should have on record. I think there is a space for preferred name as well as legal name on UCAS. Did you put it on there?

What is your status showing as when you log into UCAS?

Okay so they’ve said I’m on the waiting list now which is super good, just hoping I get a response now - thank you so much though for taking the time to reply to my first post though I really appreciate it :smile:
