A case of full classrooms. I've heard that at our uni they cater to the foreign students first because they are paying more money.

I'm sure it is not that they didn't want you - it's all a case of numbers (bums on seats).

Another door will open for you - they always open when one closes.

I just found out that i didn't even make it far enough up the list to be eligible for second round offers. They told me they didn't think I was committed enough because I had also applied to do a different course at another university. Now my entire career goals and path and plans are down the drain because they don't think I'm committed enough. You'll never find anyone more committed.

I'm so depressed I've been doing nothing but crying for the last two days. I don't want to go out becasue I burst into tears all the time and look terrible from all the crying.

WQhy did I even both working so hard to get first class when it obviously isn't worth the paper it's written ojn

Are you able to apply again in 6 months time?
It's all so unfair.

I don't think they do mid year intake. I'm looking for a job in the area to get more practical experience, but there's not much out there. I can't afford to volunteer and there's not many places that will provide supervision for non-fully trained people like me.

Big Hugs Tegan, this is definitely your time to fly. Please don't give up. I'm sure they will take you the next time around. Is there a back door to that position that you want?
Even though it might not do much this time around, I'd still write a letter to the university office and explain how important this job was to you, how you needed to get to Melbourne and help people and how they have delayed your dream. You might just touch the heart of someone in the office that can do something. I mean your marks were so good, they just can't do this.
Pleae don't give up!

I wasn't that surprised I dodn't get in to Deaking, but I also missed out at Uni of Tas. I've been told that the fact that i applied to do forensics at deakin made it appear that i wasn't fully committed to doing clinical.

I have written to the person in charge and said that i was really upset I had missed out, that i had been working towards this for a long time and that i wouldn't have applied if I wasn't committed.

Ohh Tegan, I'm so sorry you didn't get in. I think it's absolutely terrible that they can determine how commited someone is without even meeting them.

I know how dejected you must be but don't give up, keep trying you never know what door may open.

I posted an application for a position of Case worker with DHHS yesterday and got an email today from a guy at mental health services saying they were taking on people in my position for casual work as child protection workers. Thinking about applying for a job as a probation officer although it's for a longer period of time.
I'm also thinking about doing a telephone counselling course through Lifeline, but at $220 plus a committment of 5 hours volunteer work a fortnight, I'm not sure that i can afford it and I don't like running poor to mum and dad.

Still not what I wanted to be doing, but not much I can do about it. Just bide my time.

It's good you have so many options to look at. I hope something you're after comes your way soon.
