"RBS White Lodge Auditions"
 
   Just wondered if anyone had heard from the RBS yet about the final auditions for White Lodge. It is now several weeks since my daughter auditioned but we have not yet heard anything. The last set of auditions is in Bristol on Sunday but past posts suggested that they did not always wait until they were all over before they sent out the results of earlier auditions.

   A pupil of mine did the first audition on 11th Jan about two and a half weeks ago. But she was trying for MAs so would not have expected to hear.
If you were applying for WL and you still haven't heard by the end of next week then I suggest you ring and ask whether the results have been posted. Last year a pupil of mine never did get his original letter which got lost in the post!

   Hello.
My daughter auditioned in Leeds on 15th and we haven't heard a thing. My friend who's daughter auditioned in Birmingham last week hasn't heard either.
We have come to the conclusion that they must be waiting until the Bristol auditions are out of the way.
It is awful when they are at the beginning of an audition tour as it makes the wait longer!
Best of luck and let's keep eachother posted!
We are not optimistic but we had a fun day!

   There are many of us on the board who will empathise with your pain!! It's a shame they don't just tell you when the letters will be sent out - but there are many threads from previous years with the same cry. Won't be long now... Good luck

   My daughter also auditioned on the 11th, we were told by the audition panel that letters would be sent out at the very end of Jan. I have also just heard that a boy from the Hammond school auditioned at Birmingham, as soon as the audition was over his parents were approached by the panel. To cut the story short the boy was offered a place at White Lodge there and then and he will be starting in Sep with a full MDS award. Bravo to the boy and also to the Hammond for allowing him to audition thus giving him this excellent opportunity.

   Thankfully my daughter doesnt do her audition until Sunday so the wait for results wont be quite so painful!

Good luck to everyone else auditioning in Bristol.

Many congratz to the child from Hammond - its good to hear these schools aren't slow to act when somebody extra special comes along.

Waiting will be over soon, although I'm sure the results will just lead to more anxious decisions to make!

   Have heard from somebody who went through the audition process last year that letters (regardless of which area you auditioned) don't go out until the last area (i.e. Bristol this year) have been completed. The yes's tend to go out before the no's - obviously this may not be the case this year!

Not many nails left to chew now!

   Hello.
Apparently last year some letters were received before the Bristol auditions!
Who knows when they will arrive?......

   Who can tell...

In my experience, the "yes"s and the "no"s arrive at the same time, and usually, just when you're thinking they must be waiting for the last set of auditions, the letters turn up.

We've been in the horrible position of getting our letters late - purely because of the post - same date on the postmark - horrible when your children's friends have got theirs and you're waiting yet again for the postman.

My advice - meditation (or wine - depending on your "thing")

This is just the start of a very long, windy road - whatever the result

   Just had a letter this morning, got all exited because it looked thicker than normal. Opened it quickly, noticed a date on it, got all exited again and then realised it was a letter inviting all associates to a ballet day. I really do need to get a grip, the chances are its probably a no, as at this stage (age 13) they must only invite a very small number of children back for a second audition.

It did make me laugh though. To be honest I think in a weird way this is the nice bit, because you can live in hope. Once the letter arrives with the no then thats it you have to move on, wait till next year or have to wait that long, long, wait to hear if you have made it into the associates. Good Luck to everybody who are waiting.

   I also seem to remember when the final letters were coming out for places, that the bills for JAs/MAs would arrive about the same time, so you'd get all excited at the RBS postmark and find it was a bill.

Nothing here re upper school recalls either today

Billing timing happened last year - the cynic in me wondered if they timed it so that people paid up for the last term before they found out they hadn't got a place at WL!!

One poor family I know all sat around the table to share the opening of THE letter, and found out it was a bill.

Our "no thanks" after the finals, btw, came in an "ordinary" handwritten envelope, "ordinary" stamp no RBS frank or anything to warn you. I thought that was a particularly mean trick.

   My daughter has a Junior Associate class tomorrow with the teacher who did the Leeds auditions so I will try to ask if she knows when the letters are likely to come out. Will let everybody know if she has any ideas. Otherwise good luck to everybody waiting!

   Hi, hope you dont mind me asking - just wondered if you found any information out regarding when we should be hearing. My daughter did the Bristol audition today and we weren't given any indication when we would receive the results.

Good luck to your daughter - fingers crossed.

   Just asked my friend who's daughter is a JA at Birmingham. She asked yesterday but no one knew when the letters would go out. We are guessing mid to end of this week?
Hope your daughter did well!

   giggling away at that image!!!! It is good that we have not lost our senses of humour yet!!!
What time does your post arrive? Mine doesn't get here until mid-morning - If I get loads of message notifications popping up for this thread in the morning I don't know if I will dare open them!!
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!! That wait will soon be over - still sure it is a no for us but at least can move on to next project!

   mine is mid morning also, however I have to wait until I get home from work to see if our letter is waiting for us. I am lucky though in that other friends in the same predicament text me to let me know if their letters have arrived or not.

   ...I saw our postman today, he was up the road a bit and I hung around the front door for ages waiting for him..he never arrived!
I think he believes I am a bit derranged at the moment!

No consolation of wine for me though as I am at home with Bronchitis and feeling awful. Had to take my daughter out to her ballet exam on Sunday which didn't help..the things we parents do!

Best of luck to everyone
