Posted:I went for my Guildford Theatre School audition last saturday, and yesterday I got the "Sorry you've not got in" letter.

Now don't get me wrong but
[rant]
If youre going to drama school, should it be your talent that gets you in? Not whether or not you come over as determined? Thats where I went wrong, I reckon, i was just too laid back in the interview. They dont fecking KNOW me, how can they judge, based on my attitude (nervous) in the interview? Now I know I can act, I have awards for it, and I know that the awards are only for amateur performance, but they cant judge the fact that I am determined enough for the course? I have a specific set of what I wanna do cards for this career, but if they dont give me any leeway im fecked.

Sorry about that.

Anyways, there are other schools, i'm just angry to hell that they couldnt be bothered to get to know me in a recall.

Here's to the next one.

Posted:Apologies for posting although I dont know you, but sorry to hear your disappointing news. I get very frustrated at the seemingly arbitrary selection processes used in the world sometimes.

Im no expert in your field - but is it not possible to get into acting without acting school? You have a lot of faith and confidence in your abilities, so when gfoing for auditions, you would stand a greater chance of gettin it becasu eyou are actually good, rather than where you were schooled to get that good?

However, I am rather idealistic an naive and forget the world shafts us at any opportunity. I mean, I have trouble sitting down nowadays wink biggrin
