    Hi Vana, how did you find out that you are guaranteed a spot to the August intake?

    I wonder when we will find out if we might get a seat? I would like to have some more info but no one is available to contact right now

    Hey vana!Did your email specifically say you are guaranteed a spot for Aug?

    I don't entirely understand that. They say it's a competition each time but yet people can be guaranteed a spot for the next intake? My guess is you are probably #1 or #2 on the hold list and they are likely thinking you will be getting in for January.

    And now we sit and wait some more. Does anyone know who I can contact to ask what I can do to strengthen my application for August?

    I just replied to the email that was sent and asked how to strengthen my application!

    Nursinghopeful1234: Can you let us know if they respond to you? I want to do the same but I feel like they might not respond as they are probably really busy...

    Yes my email said that I was on top of the hold list (one of the top spots) and it specifically said I was in for August so I can defer which I think I'm going to do since holidays are coming up and I can make more money working

    Hi everyone,

    I am on the hold list too and am guaranteed a spot for the August intake as well. The e-mail said the following: "this offer is not being sent to all hold list candidates only those in the top positions. I just e-mailed deferring to the August intake because I was planning to defer regardless.
    Good luck to you all and I cannot wait to meet you guys!

    Hi all,

    I'm just trying to figure this out. Has anybody received a non-offer? Or is everyone considered hold-list until a week or so down the road?

    Also, when you received your hold-list email, does it state for everyone that the registration fee is waived if you apply for August 2013?

    Thanks for the help, congrats to those that are in, and best of luck to the hold-listed.

    I have also emailed them. I also informed them that if I am unsuccessful in obtaining a seat for the January 2013 intake I would like to re-apply for August. I am absolutely 100% determined to get in! And vana, congrats! You were so close and can still breathe a sigh of relief knowing you are definitely in for August!
