Hi Anfield bound...! I have an interview for psychology on the 24th, I was looking for info through the posts. I posted another thread somewhere else as well but I'm new in boards.ie and I'm a bit lost :-P
Thanks a lot for the info you shared, it's very useful, and of course good luck, I wish you got a place....!
I have some other questions if you don't mind:
Did they ask you about how you would support yourself financially? did they seem concerned about that?
who were the interviewers?
Was it long?...
Thanks a million, honestly!

No, there was no mention of finances at all by them. I was Interviewed by a woman from the History dept. and a guy from Political Science, they were both very friendly and casual about it....I subsequently got a rejection letter though so its difficult to judge!full steam ahead for the 24th now.best of luck with your interview.

How soon after your interview did you get a rejection letter..?? That seems very soon ? Did you apply as a Single Honour or TSM?

single honour. did the interview on tuesday and got the letter that thursday. they said they'd be making their decision that day but it was still a bit of a shock to receive the 'thanks but no thanks' 2 days later.

hey everyone i just received my letter from nuim today i got in yay! least now i can feel a little confident, its bittersweet cus if i dont get accepted to ucd through my msap score il have to take nuim and all my plans will need to be changed dramatically. i never realised how nerve wreaking and stressful waiting would be.
does anyone know how long it takes to receive a letter from ucd? my overall msap was 75% and by what ppl have been saying if 90% is the cut off then i obviously wont get a ucd spot. i just wish i could know so i can start sorting out everything.

A friends brother had the same thing from Trinity last year. Think it was of social studies he applied. He rang and asked for feedback on his interview as he did get rejected. He was told that the didn't think he would complete the course as he had not previously done any type of courses in it before. Asked if he did an access course in it would it help. They said yes as it would show he could complete something.

I'd suggest you ring up and ask for the feedback to see what they say. Can only help.

Hi murf, congrats on NUIM - I haven't heard from them. For UCD check out the 'news' section of the mature student portal on UCD it says which courses have made their decisions. You should have got e mail notification either way, but I didn't get anything- the email got lost - so if you're still wondering give em a ring... They're very nice

Can i just ask, is it the Overall Percentile the colleges use or just the overall combined score of the two tests like, I kinda have a feeling already that its the percentile they use use to determine your application, but just to confirm thanks

Think they use the overall score, not percentile, as that was supplied to CAO. Score was also what was on the NUIG ansaphone message...
