You haven't got long to wait really!

I know this feeling! I had hoped to go to Eastern Europe this summer, before starting university in September, but still haven't got a place, having interviews still.....waiting and trying to get onto a course....So it looks like it might not happen. Meanwhile I'm stuck in a nightmare office job.

If/When I do get on my chosen course, I won't get any holidays for three years because I'll be on placements in hospitals over the summers! So I'm desperate to get away asap!

I am "stuck at University" for another 3 days then its the end of semester and we do not come back till the end of August! And this happens every year! I have graduated (three times, BA, MA and PhD) and now work for a University, best way as then you get 4 months off per year to travel!

Sorry I know that has not helped for the short term - but crack on and then get a job like mine! :-)

I am going mad because of this!

The university made their decision last week but they are still unable to even tell me when I will hear! I just need to know am I in or not?

If I get in, I will try to do a last minute jaunt around Europe (can't even plan it yet). If not, I have to pull myself together, find another job and apply next year if I'm not in a mental institution by then.

So if you are stuck in college/uni- don't worry at least you got on the course and you know it'll be ok in the end !
