    Its long, you have been warned

    Well, here we go

    Withdrew my place from oxrod during november as I couldn't get to the interviews...
    This meant I was rather surprised on monday evening when I got home a letter from them inviting me for interview. I wasn't most impressed to say I'd already withdraw, that and the fact this letter wasn't personalised, nor was it even complete. When I recieved this on monday it was less that 7days notice I had been given....which, quite frankly, is not very good.

    So I sent an e-mail to the admissions tutor (or whatever she is) explaining how I'd withdrawn my place so wouldn't be attending the interview. Got a reply saying 'thanks for letting us know' to which I was already a bit :rolleyes:

    So, I foolishly thought that was the end of it all. then on Wednesday the head approaches me 'rachel, I need a word' a rather scary prospect. I was taken into a room where he told me
    'Just had college at oxrod on the phone, they say you're their best candidate they've got () *I don't believe this fact* and they really regret that you have withdrawn...blah blah'

    on it went until I said, 'well if they want me that badly they should get some organisation skills and sort something' so the head said he would phone the man back. Later that day I was collared again, to be told they had rung back and rather changed their tone...They were then taking the tack about how they give more than 7 days notice (they didn't) I recieved an e-mail (I didn't) and the dates have been on their website for ages (I am aware of this...but I still can't book train tickets if I don't know whether I have to go or not). By this point I was all ready to phone them back and tell them thanks but no thanks (it would have been polite yet forceful) but I wasn't allowed :p:

    The head took care of it and phoned them back. Then yesterday, my bilge teacher found me and advised me to go and check my e-mails as I had a funny one. I went and saw the one he meant, one from (surprise surprise) oxrod! Have a read through and it was not nice at all...horrid tone (v. sarcastic and patronising) all the way through, yet them still trying to get me to go down. After reading this I was really very riled, so composed an e-mail full of my very best wit and charm *cough* :dry: which would have settled it for me then and there.....In steps my maths teacher, I wasn't allowed to send this either, he went on solidly at me for an hour about the whole situation, which I was fed up with and v. confused....so I started crying embarrassingly enough. It ended up me just sitting there going 'I want to speak to *bilge teacher*' so I went at dinner time...He said how he wsn't impressed by this letter at all either, though did find it funny :indiff:

    I went home after having jointly composed a different e-mail as a joint effort. Thought about it then after I got back in, sent it off....

    I'm just hoping its all over and they either realise I can't get there and thats that, or if they want me...they should bloody sort something

    Me and the staff at school think its all a load of nonsense why they want me though. We think really its because I've come from a special measures school yet have done well out of it so it'd look good on their quota but nvm


    Sorry about how long that is :cool:

    ''Best candidate they've got''...told you you'd get in :puppyeyes:

    sorry, not read it all yet but :hugs:


    edit: it seems that you don't wanna go there cos you just don't like their attitude/can't get there? sure there's absolutely no way of getting there?

    personally if I was you race i'd jump at the chance of interview especially if they like you :p:

    no matter what people say it is oxford after all and i'm sure once you'd get there it'd be whole lot nicer and the people there are generally down to earth and friendly. but meh personal choice i guess!
